What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a restoration that fully covers compromised or damaged teeth. It acts as a ‘helmet’ that wraps over the tooth. Unlike fillings, a dental crown protects the tooth from biting forces down the centre of the tooth in order to prevent the tooth from fracturing.

When are Dental Crowns Recommended?
  • If you have received root canal treatment. Root canal treatment leaves teeth brittle and more prone to fracture. Consequently, a dental crown is required in order to protect the tooth and prevent breakage later on.
  • If you have several or large fillings, or have large cavities
  • If you have silver fillings, which have a tendency to crack teeth
  • If you have chips and heavy wear
  • If there are any aesthetic concerns like discolouration
Types of Crowns

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, zirconia-based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full-cast metal. A full assessment by your dentist will be needed to determine which material is right for you. Such things as the general health of your teeth, position within the mouth, habits such as grinding, and your personal preference will all be taken into account.
