Dental Crowns

Maximum choice for the happiest outcome.

When a tooth is badly broken or heavily filled, the dentist may need to crown or ‘cap’ it to restore its appearance and strength.

Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. New materials are continually being introduced. It is a good idea to talk to your dentist about which crown would be best for you.

The traditional method for fitting a crown involves shaping the tooth under local anaesthetic and then taking an impression using a rubber-like material. The impression is then sent to the laboratory and the technician makes the crown.

However, at Norfolk House, using advanced digital technology we are able to shape your tooth, scan it, mill the crown from a block of porcelain before fitting it, all in the same visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

A crown is a tooth-shaped covering (cap) that completely encases the tooth. It is fitted onto a damaged tooth to protect the remaining tooth structure and give your teeth a natural look. Think of it like a snug hat fitted over your tooth. Unlike a dental filling, which repairs just a piece of the tooth, a crown restores the whole tooth’s shape, strength and appearance.
You may need a dental crown for several reasons, including:
• To restore cracked, broken or decayed teeth
• To cover and then protect a tooth that’s been treated with a root canal or filling.
• To improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth.
• To help if you grind your teeth.
• To hold a dental bridge or denture in place.
Teeth tend to be crowned when the damage is not bad enough to warrant extraction but is too extensive for a simple filling. It may be possible to place a crown that only covers some of the tooth surfaces or even a dental veneer.
Additionally, the affected tooth can always be removed and replaced with either a denture, bridge or dental implant.
You may be aware of your new crown for the first few days. This is completely normal and you will get used to it very quickly.
• Brush and floss daily.
• Have a professional clean 2-4 times a year.
• Avoid biting down on hard foods and ice.
Crowns will typically last for 5 to 15 years. The time frame is directly related to your diet and how you look after them at home.
