Conceal damage and unsightly teeth with an aesthetic crown
Crowns provide a neat and fully protective cover for teeth that have become damaged, badly decayed or discoloured. They can successfully improve the overall appearance of your smile and are colour matched to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Why choose a crown?
Crowns replace the entire outside structure of the affected tooth, giving a full rebuild and reliable restoration. They can be used to repair a number of issues, including chips, cracks and weakness caused by large fillings, and restore function to your mouth. Crowns are often used as the last stage in root canal treatment to regain the tooth structure, and affixed to dental implants.
Crowns are now incredibly natural looking, especially when made from porcelain or ceramic material. This can be matched to the exact shade of your existing teeth for a truly aesthetic, strong and durable finish.
Spread the cost of your dental treatment with our flexible finance option and easy, manageable monthly payments.
At your first appointment, we carefully examine your teeth, making sure the internal structure of your affected tooth is strong and suitable for a crown. We remove a layer of tooth enamel to make room to accommodate your crown.
We take impressions and images of your prepared tooth so your crown can be custom made. We make a note of your natural tooth colour so your new restoration can be made to fit perfectly into your smile, and fit a temporary crown to protect your tooth between appointments.

When your crown is ready, we check the colour and fit before removing your temporary restoration and fitting your final one in place using strong dental cement.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I look after my crown?
The best way to look after your crown is to include it in an excellent oral hygiene routine at home. Consider it as one of your natural teeth and remember to brush and floss twice a day to avoid gum disease or decay. It is also important to visit your dentist for regular check ups, so they can keep an eye on your crown and spot any potential issues early.
How long will my crown last?
With the correct care, your crown can last up to 10-15 years before needing to be replaced. They are not likely to last a lifetime, and usually it is natural wear and tear that causes the need for repair or replacement.
Can my crown become discoloured or stained?
Crowns do have the potential to become stained and discoloured over time, especially if you consume a lot of dark or acidic foods or drinks, or are a smoker. However, the stains are usually lighter than in natural teeth, and may be able to be removed with a professional clean.
Can I have whitening treatment if I have a crown?
While whitening treatments will not have a negative impact on your crown, they do not work on dental restorations so will not be able to alter the shade. You may find that your crown looks out of place after you have whitening treatment, but we can replace it if you wish, at an additional cost.
