A crown restores the size, appearance, strength, and functionality of a heavily decayed, damaged, discoloured, or misshapen tooth. It is designed to mimic the appearance of a real tooth, blending in with your smile.
During your first visit, your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic, reshape your tooth, and take a 3D scan of the area, so your customised crown can be fabricated. You will wear a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready.
During your next visit, your dentist will place your permanent crown over the tooth, check it for a proper fit and cement it in place.
How do I take care of my crown?
Regular brushing and flossing, along with visiting your dental hygienist at least twice a year for professional cleaning, is all that is required to take care of your new crown.
Avoid chewing on very sticky or hard foods to ensure the longevity of your crown.
How long will my crown last?
A crown can last up to 15 years, as long as you practise good oral hygiene daily and visit your dentist for regular check-ups.

The government announced that from Monday 8th of June, restrictions on Dental Practices seeing patients for face-to-face appointments will be lifted in England.
We are incredibly pleased to be able to see our patients again, and we are working very hard to ensure that the Practice is a safe and well-equipped environment for us to deliver the dental care needed.
However, we would like to make it clear that we are following a phased return during the following weeks;
This means we do not have an open-door policy, and we are not yet at the point at which routine appointments can be made.
As you can imagine, with every Dental Practice in the country gearing up to return, there is an immense strain on our PPE supply chain, and so we can only provide emergency dental care with a skeleton staff to begin with, whist we implement our new protocols and source the required PPE.
We will keep you updated on our progress and readiness to book Check-ups, Hygienist appointments and other appointments over the coming weeks.
Until then, we would kindly request that only those with a genuine dental emergency or pain ring the practice and leave a message briefly describing the problem.
A dentist will then assess and advice on the best course of action over a telephone call first.
If it is agreed that you need to attend the Practice, our Receptionists will explain in detail what to expect on arrival, and all our new protocols.
These emergency patients along with those who have been cancelled midway through treatment, are the ones who will be contacted as a priority. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
I hope you have been keeping well and I look forward to seeing you soon.
