About Dental crowns

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown repairs a decayed or otherwise damaged tooth by providing a protective casing for the entire tooth surface.

This strengthens the tooth and enhances appearance by restoring natural shape, size and colour.

Crowns provide a solution when a filling wouldn’t be sufficient after removal of decayed or damaged tooth structure. They can also be used with dental implants and to support dentures and bridges.

Crowns – as strong as natural teeth – reinforce remaining healthy tooth structure and provide protection from further damage.

Benefits of dental crowns include:

  • Ending discomfort being caused by a damaged tooth
  • Preventing damage from progressing to the tooth nerve
  • Durability – crowns last up to 15 years
  • Improving appearance of a damaged tooth
  • Improving bite function
When you might need a dental crown

Advantages of dental crowns

When you might need a dental crown

Crowns are a standard treatment to repair damage from extensive tooth decay and after physical injury has resulted in a badly cracked tooth.

You might also need a dental crown to:

  • Strengthen a tooth that has had a large filling
  • Improve the appearance of a filling that’s become tarnished
  • Protect a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Enhance appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth

Types of dental crowns:

Crowns can be made from various materials, including:

  • Pure porcelain
  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • Composite resin
  • Metal alloys such as gold or stainless steel
  • Zirconia
Benefits of dental bridges

Dental bridges are traditionally known to be made with a metal framework because of the strength of the material. Thanks to advances in dental technology, metal-free, all-ceramic bridges are available – which are just as robust but more aesthetically appealing.

Dental bridges fill the gap caused by a missing tooth or teeth. They consist of:  

  • The bridge base (abutment), which is fixed to teeth on either side of the gap
  • Crown, which goes on top of the abutment
  • The artificial tooth (a pontic), which is attached to the crown

Bridges prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position and ensure even distribution of bite pressure. 

Unlike dentures, bridges are non-removable. Unlike dental implants, they don’t involve surgery, additionally bridges can last up to 15 years.

Dental crown costs

You Get To Choose

Crowns cost more than fillings but are more reliable and last longer.

The cost of dental crown treatment depends on considerations such as:

  • How much preparation is needed
  • The material used – porcelain crowns, for instance, generally cost more than metal crowns

Is dental crown treatment right for you?

We can help you decide whether crown treatment is right for you, based on factors such as the extent of damage or decay to your tooth and your aesthetic objectives. We can also advise you on which type of crown material is best for you.
