Dental Crowns

Restore and protect your smile

Long-term solution to strengthen and enhance the appearance of your teeth

Dental crowns

Dental crowns can restore natural form, function and aesthetic appeal to damaged teeth. These meticulously crafted custom-made ‘helmets’ are carefully fitted over prepared existing teeth to replace their natural crowns. Dental Crafted specialises in creating crowns that enhance your smile and provide lasting durability and function.

Dental crown materials

Porcelain crowns: Porcelain crowns are popular due to their aesthetically pleasing appearance. They are carefully colour-matched to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, creating a harmonious smile.

3D-printed crowns: Using advanced digital 3D scans and CAD/CAM technology, these crowns are crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Each crown is digitally designed and precisely printed to ensure an accurate fit and optimal function. Watch this space as printed dental materials continue to advance.

Gold alloy crowns: Gold alloy crowns are less popular now but they provide exceptional strength and durability. Although more noticeable due to their metallic colour, gold crowns are a long-lasting option.

Purpose and benefits of dental crowns

The primary purpose of dental crowns is to repair and strengthen teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken, or extensively decayed. Crowns provide essential support, protection, and reinforcement by covering the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. They restore your ability to bite and chew comfortably while preventing further damage to the underlying tooth structure

In addition to their functional benefits, dental crowns offer aesthetic advantages. Our skilled dental artisans meticulously craft each crown to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend.

In what situations might a dental crown be necessary?

Dental crowns are recommended for various dental concerns, including:

  • Strengthen weakened teeth: Dental crowns provide added strength and support to weak teeth, restoring their functionality and preventing further damage.
  • Protect cracked teeth: When a tooth is broken, a crown can act as a protective shield, helping to stabilise the tooth and prevent further fracturing.
  • Repair damaged or decayed teeth: Crowns are an effective solution for extensively damaged or decayed teeth, restoring their form and function.
  • Support dental bridges: Dental crowns are used to secure dental bridges in place, filling the gap left by missing teeth and restoring the ability to bite and chew properly.
  • Conceal severe stains or discoloration: Crowns can cover severely stained or discoloured teeth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Cover teeth after root canal treatment: Following root canal treatment, a dental crown is often recommended to protect the treated tooth, as it may become more susceptible to fracture.
  • Cover dental implants: Dental crowns can be placed over dental implants, providing a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth and restoring both function and appearance.

Dental crown placement process

The process of receiving a dental crown at Dental Crafted involves the following steps:

1. Initial consultation: We will examine your tooth during your first visit and determine if a crown is your best treatment option.

2. Tooth preparation: We carefully reshape the damaged tooth to create space for the crown. Any decayed or compromised areas will be removed, ensuring a solid foundation for the crown.

3. Impression and crown fabrication: We will take a digital impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth to create a precise 3D model. This 3D model serves as a blueprint for crafting your custom crown, ensuring an accurate fit and optimal aesthetics.

4. Temporary crown: While your permanent crown is being meticulously crafted in our dental laboratory, a temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth.

5. Crown placement: Once your custom crown is ready, you will return for its placement. The temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown will be carefully bonded or cemented onto your tooth. Our dentist will ensure a proper fit, alignment, and bite, making any necessary adjustments.

Caring for dental crowns

To ensure that your dental crowns last and perform optimally, it is crucial to follow these care recommendations:

  • Maintain excellent oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional dental cleanings and check-ups.
  • Avoid biting or chewing on hard or sticky foods.
  • If you grind or clench your teeth, consider using a night guard to protect your crowns.
