Effective and aesthetic restoration for damaged teeth

Crowns offer a neat, natural looking way to restore teeth, fitting completely over the whole tooth to conceal damage, chips or areas of decay or discolouration. They are able to return the structure and functionality, giving additional strength and protecting the tooth from any further damage.

Why might I need a crown?

You may need a crown for a number of different reasons, including:

  • To protect badly decayed or fractured teeth
  • To restore and strengthen teeth
  • To provide an aesthetic finish following root canal treatment
  • To affix to a dental implant for a solid restoration
  • To provide effective support for a dental bridge

What does the treatment involve?


Having a crown is a straightforward process. At your initial appointment, we examine your teeth and gums, ensuring the internal structure of the tooth being crowned is not showing any signs of infection.


We then remove a layer of structure from your tooth, leaving a strong core to accommodate the crown. We take impressions of your teeth, recording the colour so your crown can be made to match and fit perfectly.


While your crown is being created, we fit a temporary restoration to protect your prepared tooth.


When your crown is ready for fitting, we remove the temporary crown and fix your bespoke one in place using strong dental adhesive.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I look after my crown?

    The best way to look after your crown is to maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine at home, including brushing and flossing twice a day. It is also important to visit your dentist for regular check ups so they can keep an eye on your crown and the tooth underneath.

  • Will my crown become stained?

    If you consume a lot of darker drinks, including coffee, tea and red wine, or are a smoker, your crown may become discoloured over time. Usually, the amount of staining is not as much as in natural teeth.

  • Can my crown be whitened?

    No, whitening treatment does not affect restorations such as crowns, bridges or dentures. If you are considering whitening treatment, it might be best to get this done first so your crown can be made to match.
