Dental crowns are a treatment that helps to restore natural teeth that have been weakened by decay or long-term restorations. They are either bonded to the natural tooth or fitted atop a dental implant. They can also sometimes be used in conjunction with another dental treatment, such as a root canal treatment. Every dental crown we place at Smil is treated with precision and care.
Dental crowns come in a variety of different types to cater to different needs. As part of your bespoke treatment plan, our knowledgeable team will discuss all of the available options with you.
Various materials are used to make dental crowns. Ceramic and porcelain crowns are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry, whilst gold and zirconia metal crowns may be used when strength is a priority.
Our dental care is always centred on your well-being at all times, as with all our dental services. To avoid discomfort, your tooth crown treatment will be performed under a local anaesthetic which will numb the area.
In order to fit a custom-made crown over the damaged tooth, your dentist will prepare the outer surface to the ideal shape. Your dentist will take a digital scan of your mouth to send to our highly qualified dental technicians, who will construct your dental crown.
Our dental laboratory uses quality materials, and the process usually takes two weeks. Until your permanent crown is ready, you will have a temporary dental crown fitted for comfort and ensure you can smile with confidence in the meantime.
