With a crown, we can repair and restore teeth that have become damaged in some way.

Crowns are one of the most common ways we repair damaged teeth. They can also be used in other treatments to ensure their success, such as after some root canal treatments and in applying a bridge.

Reasons for a crown application

  • Tooth damaged through wear and tear.
  • A damaged filling has caused the tooth to fail.
  • A discoloured tooth or filling.
  • To complete a root canal treatment.
  • Applying a bridge to replace a missing tooth or teeth.


What are crowns made of?

Traditionally, crowns have usually been made of a precious metal such as gold. With modern innovations, we can use materials such as porcelain or composite resin, which fit in much more naturally with the rest of the mouth, allowing for a much more subtle finish.

How long is the treatment time?

Crowns are usually placed over the course of two appointments.

How is a crown applied?

During the first appointment, we’ll prepare the tooth to be repaired, remove any damage and take intra-oral scans. These will then be sent off to a dental laboratory, where your crown will be made for you, and we’ll place a temporary crown for use in the meantime.

Once the personal crown is ready, we’ll apply it under local anaesthetic, ensuring the fit, bite, and comfort are correct for you.

Is the treatment painful?

We’ll use a local anaesthetic during both appointments so you can be comfortable throughout the treatment.
