Restore the original look and integrity of your natural teeth with dental crowns from our state-of-the-art dental practice.

What are Dental Crowns?

Crowns are restorations, often used to treat teeth that are badly broken down or have cracked, but part of the natural tooth remains. Crowns protect teeth by “capping” or covering them completely. Your natural tooth requires a little preparation to ensure the right fit before we cement the permanent crown into place.

These restorations provide optimally shaped and sized teeth that restore a tooth’s function and appearance. Crowns can provide excellent aesthetic restoration protection for weak or damaged teeth.

Who Should Get Dental Crowns?

Crowns help restore teeth that have already had a root canal treatment and might be brittle or likely to fracture. We also use crowns to repair teeth affected by excessive grinding, an unbalanced bite, large fillings, or inadequate oral hygiene.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a popular restorative dental treatment among patients for various reasons. As such, crowns can provide a wide range of benefits to patients.

Increase Tooth Integrity

The dental crowns we provide for patients are made of strong, durable materials that can withstand the everyday wear and tear involved with chewing and biting. By getting crowns, patients can strengthen the structural integrity of their teeth, enabling them to enjoy specific foods again. Weakened or cracked teeth can cause surrounding teeth to be compromised – crowns help improve the strength of the area as a whole.

Protect Damaged Teeth

Cracked, worn, or otherwise compromised teeth can be a liability in the mouth. Not only can they break, but they can cause additional damage to surrounding teeth. By having dental crown treatment, you offer your teeth and gums extra strength and support.

Preserve Natural Tooth Structure

Keeping existing teeth in place is always the first goal for our dental team. Will will explore other options when absolutely necessary. As an early treatment step, crowns preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible rather than requiring more extensive treatments, such as extractions and dental implants.

Improved Appearance

Teeth that are discoloured, misshapen, uneven, cracked, or broken can be unsightly. In some cases, these damaged teeth can present difficulties or issues for oral health. Crowns can improve the appearance and integrity of such teeth, restoring a natural and healthy look.

Improved Function

Crowns help improve the function of damaged teeth. Since teeth are integral to chewing, biting, and eating, the benefit of crowns cannot be overlooked. Food is a wonderful part of life and celebrations, and enjoying meals with friends and loved ones is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Crowns can help patients return to enjoying meals thanks to improved tooth function.

Support for Bridges and Dentures

Securing bridges and dentures is a significant benefit of dental crowns. The stability of such dental devices is critical for them to work correctly. Crowns help anchor other restorations to the teeth for confident speaking and eating without slips, clicks, and other inconveniences from ill-fitting restorations.

Long-Lasting Results

Dental crowns can last up to 15 years or more with proper care. Patients can enjoy the benefits of crowns for well over a decade, making this type of dental treatment a more cost-effective option than other types of restorative treatments down the road.

Reduced Sensitivity

Sensitivity can be a major issue with teeth. Crowns can help reduce pain and discomfort in teeth frequently exposed to hot and cold temperatures.

Customised Dental Crowns

At smile2o, we create crowns from aesthetically-designed materials made of precious metal covered with porcelain, zirconia (strengthened ceramic), or porcelain on its own. We will recommend a crown type based on our assessment of each case. We work closely with our dental ceramists and laboratory to produce a natural-looking, well-fitting crown.
