A dental crown is a customised tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. 

 

You may need a crown if you have:

 

  • Significant tooth decay or tooth wear

  • Broken or chipped tooth/teeth

  • Cracks on your teeth

  • Developmental abnormalities, for example, teeth that are smaller than usual or under-developed

  • Undergone a Root Canal Treatment (especially your big molar teeth)

  • Have lost and replaced with Dental Implants

  • Teeth with an undesirable colour, shape or alignment and you would like a Smile Makeover.

 

 Getting a crown helps to:

 

  • Prevent crack teeth from growing and damaging your tooth pulp and tooth structure permanently

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking

  • Hold parts of a cracked tooth together.

  • Restore a broken tooth or a tooth with severe wear

  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when it has been worn out

  • Cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth.

  • Cover a dental implant

  • Anchor a dental bridge

 

If you’re the right candidate for a crown procedure, our trusted dentist will take an impression of your tooth/teeth for it to be fabricated in our dental laboratory. You will get a temporary crown that needs to be worn in the meantime. Your permanent crown can take anywhere from one to three weeks. 

 

During your second visit, the dentist will remove and replace the temporary crown to fit the permanent crown and cement it into place. 

 

Getting your crown typically takes two visits. However, if you are looking for a quick one-session solution, we offer “Same-day Crowns”. You can read more about them here.
