Dental crown in Stamford Hill, London

What is a dental crown treatment?

A crown, also known as a ‘cap’ is the protected cover, fitted over an existing structure of a damaged or broken tooth to restore its function and appearance.

Crowns are prescribed as a part of a treatment to restore teeth that have:

  • Undergone root canal treatment
  • Severe tooth surface loss
  • Poor aesthetic appearance
  • Existing crowns with poor appearance

What are the different types of crowns?

Crowns and their purpose can vary in colour, size and material. For example, if a crown is required at the back of your mouth, a hard-wearing, less expensive crown is recommended, made from ultra-durable dental composite. Or, if you need a crown at the front of your mouth, you may choose a natural-looking, cosmetic tooth-coloured option.

Whatever type of crown you choose, our team are there to support and guide you every step of the way.

What does a crown treatment involve?

  • Preparation time is the first thing to be aware of and can vary depending on the condition of the damaged tooth. This tooth will be reshaped to ensure once the crown is fitted, it remains the same size and shape as the natural teeth.
  • Local anaesthetic is then given to avoid any discomfort.
  • After preparation, an impression is taken of the tooth to be crowned and nearby teeth, using a soft mouldable material.
  • This impression is given to a dental technician, who uses it to build your crown to the exact size and shape required. The colour is also matched to the natural teeth.
