Crowns
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a tooth. If you have a damaged, decayed or broken tooth, a crown is a cap that goes on the damaged tooth. It restores its natural shape, size and function, and provides a beautiful natural appearance.
A crown makes a damaged tooth stronger and improves its appearance. It is also a good way to cover a badly shaped or discoloured tooth. After root canal treatment, a crown is often used to help strengthen the tooth. A crown is commonly used when a tooth has a large cavity and there is not enough of the natural tooth left to securely hold a filling.
Each crown is individually handcrafted by our dental technician to create a healthy, natural look, which also sits comfortably with your bite.
Our goal at Total Dental Care is to give you a beautiful, healthy and confident smile.
Brighten Your Smile
Having a full set of clean, straight teeth brightens your smile and improves the quality of your life. Even if you only have one visibly damaged tooth it will negatively affect your confidence and appearance.
Covering a damaged tooth is particularly important in the front of your mouth. Obviously the more visible the defect, the greater impact it has on your smile and natural appearance.
With a dental crown your smile and tooth function will be more natural. The result is increased comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking and eating. Good oral hygiene and regular dental exams are necessary to prevent further problems.

Why Do I Need a Crown?
Crowns act as protective covers that hold the underlying tooth together. They also distribute biting and chewing forces across their surface so that the tooth doesn’t fracture or split during everyday use.
We usually place crowns in situations involving
  • Single tooth dental implants
  • Root canal treatment
  • Large cavities
  • Severe wear or fractures
  • Replacing old, large fillings
What to Expect
Getting a new dental crown usually takes a two-step process. The first visit involves prepping your tooth and reducing it so that a cap will have enough room to fit properly. Then we’ll take an impression and place on a temporary crown.
In the meantime, the mould of your mouth is sent to our lab, where the permanent porcelain crown is made by hand. About two weeks later, you’ll come back to the office for us to remove the temporary, try on the permanent crown and then bond it into place.
Caring for Your New Crown
Good oral hygiene is essential to prevent bacteria from collecting around the edges of your new crown. Brush your crown thoroughly, paying particular attention to where it meets your gums. Daily flossing is also important for reaching the areas between your teeth.
* Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
