Dental Crowns are a type of restoration that can help to protect or preserve the tooth from injury or fracture and can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth.  They are often recommended after a root filling has been completed, especially on back teeth.

Reasons for placing a dental crown include:

  • Restoring a damaged or weakened tooth

  • Protecting teeth with large fillings in

  • Preserving a root filled tooth

  • Holding a dental bridge in place

  • To improve the appearance of a tooth

Initial Consultation: £80

Treatment: From £795


Crowns can be made from several materials including gold, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal and zirconia.


Crowns can be made from several materials including gold, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal and zirconia.  The choice regarding the material depends on a number of factors including where in the mouth the crown is to be placed, the strength required and the reason the crown is required.  The choice of material can be discussed and decided at your initial consultation or at the appointment in which the tooth is prepared for the crown.
When you have a crown placed the procedure is carried out over two appointments.  At the initial session, your tooth will be prepared for the crown to be placed.  This involves the shaping of your tooth to create space on all surfaces to allow room for the crown to restore the tooth to its usual proportions.  For most cases this is done with local anaesthetic to numb the tooth. Impressions are taken and at the end of the appointment the tooth will be covered with a temporary crown.
The second session involves the removal of the temporary crown and fitting of the final restoration.  This may or may not be carried out with local anaesthetic depending on your individual needs. The crown will only be fixed permanently once you have confirmed that you are happy with the colour, shape and fit.  Once fixed in place with a long-lasting dental adhesive it should last for an average of 5-15 years.  This does require that it is properly cared for and maintained.

This treatment may not be appropriate for every patient and it is conditional on a satisfactory assessment being carried out.  Many cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and veneers, composite bonding etc require that you are dentally fit prior to embarking on treatment and this may mean that other treatments need to be carried out first.

All options that are appropriate to your needs and requirements will be discussed with you in order to help you to make an informed decision about what will be in your best interest.
