Crowns

Cap it with a crown & get smiling again!

Crowns (or ‘caps’) are an affordable and easy way to complete your smile. They are used to restore and protect a damaged tooth by completely surrounding it. Crowns can help to improve your overall oral health and enhance your full smile.

Appointments

  • At least 3 appointments
    • At the consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and talk to you about the procedure.
    • The next appointment will be for the preparation of the tooth. A final set of impressions will be taken to be sent to the dental lab, the tooth shade-matched and a temporary crown placed.
    • At the final appointment, the fit and aesthetics of the crown will be checked and the dentist will check that you are happy with the appearance before cementing it in place.
  • Further appointments may be needed to review the crown and it will be checked at your regular dental check-ups.

How long it takes?

The preparation appointment will last approximately 60 mins and the fitting appointment will usually last for 30-45 mins. However, this depends on the complexity of the case.
