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.

I have been going to St Helier Dental Surgery for a few years now and my experience has always been a positive one. All the staff are friendly and professional. I recently had the boutique whitening treatment done with Dr Zena and she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She genuinely cared for me as a person which put me at ease throughout the treatment. It was very uplifting to see how excited she was for the success of my treatment. It is also reassuring to see how the surgery is following government guidelines when it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic. I highly recommend this dental surgery.
