Dental Crowns: What are Dental Crowns & What You Need To Know

A restorative procedure to repair and protect damaged teeth, a dental crown can help you achieve your perfect smile.


What are Dental crowns?

Made of zirconia, porcelain or (less commonly) metal, crowns – also known as a ‘caps’ – repair and cover chipped, cracked or broken teeth.

If you have one or more missing teeth, crowns can also form a ‘bridge’ to fill the gap. With good care and maintenance, crowns should last on average 10 to 12 years.

Are DEntal crowns right
for me?

If your tooth is chipped, cracked or broken, a crown can help restore your smile.

However, a crown is one of the most invasive procedures that can be done to your tooth. That’s why we use them sparingly – and only when they are absolutely needed.

We prefer to keep as much healthy tooth as possible. Because the more tooth you remove, the greater the risk of the tooth dying – and you needing further treatment down the road.
