Crown illustrationIf you have a damaged or cracked tooth, it’s important to address it quickly to prevent further damage. Leaving a tooth in such a state can lead to more serious concerns, such as a root canal or even tooth loss. We want to preserve your smile as much as possible, so you can enjoy the benefits of healthy teeth for many years to come.

Crowns are a great solution to protecting a deteriorated or cracked tooth. It works like a strong, protective cap that sits over the tooth like a helmet. Your crown is colour matched to your smile and blends in perfectly to your neighbouring teeth.

The Two-Step Crown Procedure

Having a dental crown requires two simple appointments. When you come in for your first visit, we will examine your teeth and take some X-rays if required. We will also take impressions of your teeth so we can create your custom crown.

In order to make room for the dental crown, we will need to gently shave down the damaged tooth. To make your procedure as comfortable as possible, your dentist will administer an anaesthetic, so you are relaxed during the procedure.

Lastly, we will affix a temporary crown to your tooth, so you will have proper function of the tooth straight away.

When your permanent dental crown is ready from our lab, we will give you a call and have you come in for your last appointment. During your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with the permanent one.

The procedure is simple. First, we’ll ask you to come in for a consultation. Your dentist will assess your teeth and take X-rays if required. It’s important the neighbouring teeth are strong and healthy, so they can hold the bridge in place.

We will take impressions of your teeth, so we can have your bridge made in our lab. We’ll give you a call in approximately one to two weeks to come in and have your bridge placed.

I have two missing teeth in a row. Is this something a dental bridge can fix?

Our dental bridges can address a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. To make sure you’re a good candidate, we will need to see you for a consultation. Your surrounding teeth must be strong and healthy to hold the bridge in place.
Is the procedure of getting a dental crown painful?

We offer patients a gentle anaesthetic before a crown procedure. Most patients tell us they hardly feel any pain during the treatment. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that involves gently filing down a small amount of the damaged tooth. This is simply to make room for the new crown which will sit over the top like a protective cap.
