What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap that covers the surface of a damaged tooth. They are used to save, protect and restore the underlying tooth. 


Dental crowns are required to protect a weak tooth from decay or after root canal treatment, restore a broken or worn down tooth and to cover a dental implant.

You'll need to book an appointment with our dental practice team in advance. Please bear in mind that our schedule can often be quite busy so it's best to try book several weeks in advance, or better yet, immediately after your last appointment. Our team will book a convenient time for you. On arrival you will be asked to wait in our state-of-the-art practice until called upon by the dentist.


We will take an X-ray to check the viability of the tooth. You might require a root canal treatment before preparing the tooth for a dental crown. During the first appointment, we will prepare and shape the tooth to make space and optimize the strength of the crown. We will then scan the tooth digitally with our intraoral scanner and send it to the lab, who will make the crown. Meanwhile, we will place a temporary crown to protect and function until the crown is made. At the second appointment we will remove the temporary crown and carefully check the function, fit and aesthetics of the crown, after which it is cemented firmly to the tooth.


Aftercare for dental crowns starts immediately after the procedure. For the first 24-48 hours you should continue to treat the crown as if it were temporary – avoiding sticky and chewy foods, and other actions that might dislodge it. Beyond that time, the crown should be cemented firmly into place and you can start to treat it as you would if it were a natural tooth. You may still experience some sensitivity in your gum around the crown, but this will usually fade over the first few weeks – consult your dentist if you have lasting discomfort that does not seem to be improving over time.


Types of Dental Crowns


There are different types of crowns that can be used, full crowns or inlays or onlays, and can be made of different materials. Depending on the individual’s case and the wear on the tooth, our dentists will discuss the best options with you.

What if my crown comes out?

In some cases a crown might only become loose, so it can be re-cemented and reattached easily. In other cases, a crown might fall out because it is damaged. In cases like these, we will need to make a new one.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the crown be noticeable?

No the crown will not be obvious and every attempt will be made to match your other teeth. Sometimes photographs are taken to ensure the laboratory technician creates the best possible match. In rare circumstances the patient is advised to meet with the technician in order to get the ideal result.

A temporary crown, usually made in plastic, will be fitted at the end of the first appointment to last until the permanent one is ready.  These temporary crowns may be more noticeable, but they are only in place for about two weeks.
