Dental Crowns

Our teeth may be made from the toughest material in the body, but they still are vulnerable to damage, which is why a dental crown is a fantastic option in our St. Helier clinic. They can strengthen teeth that are weaker while giving you well-aligned and great looking teeth. As a small ‘cap’ that sits on the visible part of your tooth, they are a very non-invasive and simple dental solution.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Crowns fit over teeth that have had extensive damage and are letting your smile down as a result. Made from a variety of materials, crowns are used to restore strength, shape and appearance.

They are an aesthetic restoration for broken, decayed or discoloured teeth, or those with large fillings. They are matched in size, shape and colour to sit comfortably alongside existing teeth. As crowns completely cover up the tooth, it’s necessary to remove part of the tooth to accommodate the restoration.

Ceramic, porcelain and precious metals are the main materials used for crowns and they can be a blended combination of these materials as well. They look the most life-like and will effortlessly match the rest of your teeth, making for a natural smile.

Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Crowns and Implants

For individual missing teeth, crowns can be easily secured to dental implants to replace missing teeth in our Morden dental practice. Using implants and crowns in combination, the result is the next best thing to a natural tooth.

Dental Crown Process & Treatment

When you come into our St. Helier Dental Surgery, we will check for any damage to the internal structure of the tooth. Then we will gently shape the tooth to accommodate the crown. We take digital impressions of the prepared tooth and record the shade. This information is packaged up ready to send to the dental laboratory where the crown is made.

We will provide a temporary crown so the tooth is protected. When we see you again for the fitting of your custom crown, the temporary crown is removed and the new permanent one fixed in place with strong dental cement.

As long as a dental crown is looked after carefully, by avoiding very hard foods and thoroughly cleaning teeth, they offer a natural-looking restoration that can last for years.

The smiling reception is always professional and friendly and I was so pleased when my Dentist, Dr. Deval, took time to inform me of my choices which were best for me personally. A refreshing change. A smashing Dentist, Tuba and her lovely assistant Sanju have taken over from Dr Deval. Tuba, cares about her patients and works towards them keeping a healthy smile, she's a credit to the Dentist profession as is her assistant Sanju. She got rid of an abscess painlessly and on my next appointment she miraculously saved my tooth for which I am so grateful. Valentina and Sarah who work on the reception desk are always welcoming and very helpful. Many thanks to a great Dentist and her team. L Lambert.

I'm so grateful for all the effort and support during my two visits with Dr Tuba Pishgharavol at St Helier Dental Surgery in Morden. Dr Pishgharavol is really a professional, and at the same time showed her passion and commitment in very complicated a root canal treatment. However, all other staff is very polite, friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this dental practice to my friends.
