Crowns

Crowns fit neatly over unsightly or broken teeth, providing complete coverage and restoring strength, shape and appearance. They offer an aesthetic restoration for broken, decayed or discoloured teeth, or those with large fillings.

Made from porcelain, ceramic or metal alloys, crowns can also be used on teeth that have had root canal treatment or secured to dental implants to replace missing teeth. They are matched in size, shape and colour to sit comfortably alongside existing teeth.

Treatment steps

  • We remove a layer of enamel from the tooth to accommodate the crown.
  • We take impressions of the prepared tooth and record the shade of the natural teeth so the crown can be made to fit perfectly.
  • To protect the tooth between appointments, we will cover it with a temporary crown.
  • When ready, we remove this temporary crown and fix the new permanent one in place with a strong dental cement.

As long as you look after your crowns carefully, by avoiding very hard foods and thoroughly cleaning teeth, they can offer a long-lasting restoration.

Currently, it is increasingly difficult to get appointments at your existing or register with a new dental practice. We fully appreciate how frustrating this can feel and we are working hard to continue to provide you with a quality service.

We are asking that now more than ever, please be considerate of these difficult times and always allow 24 hours to cancel an appointment. Giving us this notice allows the team time to allocate it to someone in need.

Any failed or late cancelled appointments will now have the 'late cancellation fee; applied in full*, your further appointments may be cancelled, treatments discontinued, or registration withdrawn from the practice.

Please expect to wait a minimum of 8 weeks for an alternative appointment date, this will be made after the late cancellation fee has been paid.

Our team and clinicians are here to help as much as they can, please treat them with respect and kindness, we have a zero-tolerance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
