How it works

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a tooth cap, is a prosthetic restoration that covers and encases a damaged or weakened tooth. Made from various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination, crowns are custom-designed to match the shape, size, and colour of the natural tooth. They are cemented onto the prepared tooth, providing strength, protection, and aesthetic improvement.

Crowns can restore the function, appearance, and structural integrity of a tooth affected by:

  • Decay
  • Fracture
  • Large fillings
  • Other dental issues

The Benefits


Restoration of Functionality

Dental crowns restore the functionality of damaged or weakened teeth, allowing patients to chew and bite comfortably without pain or discomfort.

Protection and Strengthening

Crowns provide significant protection and reinforcement to weakened teeth, preventing further damage, fractures, or decay. This helps prolong the lifespan of the tooth and avoids the need for extraction.

Aesthetic Enhancement

Crowns improve the appearance of teeth by covering visible imperfections such as discolouration, chips, cracks, or misshapenness. They are customized to match the colour, shape, and size of natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.


Dental crowns can be used to address a variety of dental issues, including restoring severely decayed or damaged teeth, supporting dental bridges, covering dental implants, or enhancing the appearance of teeth with cosmetic imperfections.


With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years, providing durable and reliable restoration of dental function and aesthetics.

Prevention of Further Dental Problems

By covering and protecting damaged teeth, crowns help prevent the progression of dental issues such as decay or fractures, reducing the risk of more extensive and costly treatments in the future.

Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

How long do dental crowns last?

The lifespan of dental crowns varies depending on factors such as material quality, oral hygiene, and habits like teeth grinding. With proper care and maintenance, crowns can last for many years, often exceeding a decade.

Are dental crowns painful to get?

Dental crown placement is typically painless, as it is performed under local anaesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding tissues. Patients may experience minor discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few days.

Do dental crowns require special care?

While dental crowns do not require special care, maintaining good oral hygiene practices like regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups is essential to prolong their lifespan and prevent complications such as decay or gum disease.

Can dental crowns fall off?

While rare, dental crowns can become loose or dislodged due to factors like decay, trauma, or improper fit. If a crown becomes loose or falls off, it is important to contact our dentist immediately for evaluation and repair.

Can dental crowns be replaced?

Yes, dental crowns can be replaced if they become damaged, worn, or discoloured over time. Our dentist will assess the condition of the crown and recommend whether replacement is necessary for optimal oral health and aesthetics.

Can dental crowns be used to fix gaps in teeth?

Yes, dental crowns can be used to close gaps between teeth by reshaping and contouring the affected teeth. Crowns provide a durable and aesthetic solution for improving the appearance of the smile and enhancing dental function.
