Dental Crowns

If you have chips, cracks or discolouration on the surface of your tooth, Smart Dental Care can correct the imperfections and protect the inside of your tooth with a dental crown, delivering a healthier, natural-looking smile.

A dental crown replaces the visible part of the tooth with a strong coating made of either ceramic or porcelain. The crowned tooth functions just like normal and blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

The shape of the crown can be made to close the gaps between your teeth and the shade can be to your specification too - the shade can be a natural one if you're happy with the colour of your teeth, or a whiter, brighter shade if you want a whitening treatment first.

Step 1

Your dentist will carry out a dental examination to make sure you’re in good oral health, inspect the tooth that needs a crown and take a mould of your teeth.

Step 2

Your dentist will file down the tooth which needs the crown fitting, making sure the final product won’t be too large for your mouth. A temporary crown will then be applied to protect the rest of the tooth whilst your mould is sent to the lab to create your permanent crown.

Step 3

Once your new crown is back from the lab, you’ll return for a second visit where your dentist will remove the temporary fitting and fix the permanent one. Crowns can last up to 15 years if well looked after.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a dental crown?
If your tooth has become weak due to a traumatic event, you most likely need a crown to restore the tooth’s strength.
Do I need a crown after a root canal?
After you have had a root canal, the tooth will lose its strength and it has a great chance of fracturing or breaking. It is highly recommended to have a dental crown after a root canal treatment.
Why does my current crown appear black on the gum line?
These types of crowns are most likely cheaper metal based crowns. To fix this problem, we recommend upgrading to a private crown, this will allow the crown to pass light through the gum line without any discolouring.
