We pride ourselves on providing expert cosmetic dentistry treatments that not only improve our patients oral health, but also give them a healthy smile they can’t wait to show off!
A dental crown is a cover or “cap” that is placed over a damaged tooth to make it stronger or improve the way it looks. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size and function, repairing your smile, and allowing you to talk, bite, and chew as normal. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, crowns are cemented onto your existing teeth or dental implants, making them very secure and long lasting.
Common reasons our professional dentists may recommend a dental crown is to cover a dental implant, or a tooth that has had root canal treatment. Dental crowns can also fix a discoloured or misshapen tooth, protect a weak tooth from cracking, repair chips, or replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to do so.
What Results Can I Expect From Crowns?
The dental crown procedure normally happens over a few visits. During your first trip to Glenville Dental, our team will thoroughly examine your teeth, and prepare a crown to best match your needs and appearance of your other teeth. Once the dental crown has been made, you will come back for another visit where we actually place the crown, securely cementing it over your implant, damaged or missing tooth. Crowns can be made from several types of materials, including metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain or composite resin. The material chosen will depend on where the dental crown needs to be placed, what problem it is fixing, and your aesthetic preference. For example porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Whatever the material, we will make a crown best suited to your mouth that will repair your damaged tooth and help your teeth last longer.

What Our Patients Say
Benefits of Dental Crowns
When applied correctly, dental crowns will help restore your oral health and make sure your teeth last you a lifetime. Dental crowns are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure because they will cover up any blemishes on your tooth, giving you a beautiful, perfectly matched new tooth. Crowns will also improve your oral health, by repairing, cracked and worn teeth, helping them to stay stronger and adding an extra layer of defence against dental decay and gum disease.
These are laboratory made capping or coverings for very broken-down teeth. Often the tooth will have had root canal treatment previously. Most crowns are made to resemble natural teeth by using porcelain, which is a very durable material in the mouth. The tooth is prepared for a crown by reducing the surfaces of the tooth. An impression (mould) is then taken of the prepared surfaces and this is sent to a specialist laboratory where the crown is made. The natural looking crown is then placed to a perfect fit on the prepared tooth with cement or bonding adhesive.
This young man attended the surgery looking to replace his upper front teeth with dental implants. The upper front teeth had existing root fillings and fractured porcelain veneers. He had been involved in an accident and was unhappy with the appearance of these teeth.
These teeth were carefully extracted to preserve existing bone, and a grafting procedure was carried out to prepare the jaw bone for dental implants. Two dental implants were placed and left for four months in the upper jaw allowing them to integrate with existing and new bone. The patient wore a temporary removable prosthesis during this period. Impressions were then taken and provisional crowns were made to allow the gum architecture to form properly. Finally the permanent porcelain crowns were fitted to produce a natural aesthetic appearance. This patient also had gum treatment and teeth whitening carried out, and is very happy with this long term permanent result
Why Get a Dental Crown Procedure
There are a range of situations when a dental crown procedure might be right for you. Our professional dentists may recommend the procedure in conjunction with other dental treatments. For example large fillings, where the tooth is too weak or worn down and needs to be covered by a dental crown, or when an existing filling shows signs of stress and cracks and needs to be restored. You might also need a dental crown after having root canal treatment, as root canal treatments can weaken the tooth and make it vulnerable to cracking. Dental crowns are commonly placed on dental implants to restore spaces left from the missing teeth. Alternatively, dental crowns can be used for purely cosmetic reasons, where you want to cover up teeth you don’t like the look of due to discolouration, shape, or spaces between the teeth.
The procedure itself is fairly straightforward, and can be completed in just a few visits. Firstly, our dentist will examine your mouth, remove any built up decay and prepare the tooth so that your new crown will fit. We use advanced technology to make an impression of your tooth, so that we can create a dental crown that matches perfectly. During your final visit, our dentist will install the new crown, and cement it securely in place. We always make sure that it fits correctly, and will make adjustments as necessary. At the end of your treatment, you will be left with a brand new looking tooth, and a beautiful smile to match.
