We understand the importance of maintaining the health and beauty of your smile.

Dental crowns, often referred to as caps, are a versatile and effective solution for restoring and protecting damaged or weakened teeth. Our skilled team of dentists is committed to providing you with the highest quality care, ensuring your comfort and confidence in your smile.

Types of Dental Crowns

  • Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns are known for their natural appearance and ability to mimic the colour and translucency of natural teeth. They are an excellent choice for front teeth and other visible areas.
  • Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal (PFM) Crowns: PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain. They are a versatile option for various situations.
  •  Zirconia Crowns: Zirconia crowns offer both strength and aesthetics, making them an ideal choice for those who prioritise a natural-looking smile.
  • Emax Crowns: Emax crowns are known for their exceptional aesthetic purposes. They closely mimic the natural appearance of a tooth and are made from a translucent material that allows light to pass through like natural enamel. An excellent choice for front teeth.
  • Gold Crowns: Gold Crowns are highly durable and long-lasting. They can withstand the forces of chewing without wear and tear and are an excellent choice for molars and premolars.

The Crown Placement Procedure

The process of getting a dental crown typically involves the following steps:

  1. Diagnosis: Our skilled dentists will assess your tooth’s condition through a thorough examination and may take X-rays for a complete evaluation.
  2. Tooth Preparation: The tooth receiving the crown is prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel to make room for the crown.
  3. Impressions: Using an intra-oral scanner, we take digital impressions of your prepared tooth to ensure a custom-fit crown.
  4. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown is placed to protect your tooth.
  5. Permanent Crown Placement: Once your custom crown is ready, it will be securely bonded to your tooth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Restored tooth strength and functionality.
  • Enhanced aesthetics, particularly with porcelain and all-ceramic crowns.
  • Protection against further damage.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Improved confidence in your smile.


1. What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made, tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged or compromised tooth. They are designed to cover and protect the visible portion of the tooth, restoring its strength, function, and aesthetics. Crowns are a common and reliable solution for a wide range of dental issues.

2. When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

Dental crowns are recommended in various situations, including:

  1. Tooth Decay: When a tooth has a large cavity that cannot be effectively restored with a filling.
  2. Cracked or Fractured Teeth: Crowns can hold together and protect teeth that have suffered cracks or fractures.
  3. Root Canal Treatment: After a root canal procedure, crowns are often placed to strengthen the tooth.
  4. Weakened Teeth: Teeth that have been weakened due to extensive wear or grinding can benefit from the added support of crowns.
  5. Cosmetic Enhancement: Crowns can be used for cosmetic purposes, improving the appearance of misshapen or discoloured teeth.
