With crowns, we can repair and restore a tooth, bringing back full function to the mouth and returning the original appearance of the tooth.

Crowns cover the visible portion of the tooth – also known as the cusp – and can be used to restore teeth that have become damaged in this area in some way. Crowns can restore full function to teeth while also helping to restore the aesthetic appearance of the mouth.

Why might I need a crown?

Crowns are used to repair and restore teeth that have become damaged at the cusp. This damage is most often caused by decay which can weaken the structure of the tooth, or from an injury or accident to the face. We also use crowns when placing dental bridges, as well as to restore full function after performing a root canal treatment. In some cases, patients might choose to have a crown placed to address cosmetic issues such as discolouration of the tooth, a misshapen tooth, or a broken tooth.

What are crowns made from?

In the past, most crowns were made from precious metals such as gold. Now, we’re able to create crowns from modern materials that are better able to fit in with the rest of the teeth and mouth, such as porcelain or Zirconia.

How long does the treatment take?

Having a crown placed usually occurs over two appointments.

What happens during the treatment?

  1. The decayed, damaged parts of the tooth will be removed
  2. We’ll take a digital scan or impression of the tooth
  3. Your crown will be made off-site using these scans – we’ll fit you for a temporary crown
  4. Once ready, we’ll remove your temporary crown and place your new crown, cementing it into place
