About the process
If one or more of your teeth are affected by decay, chips, cracks, or other forms of damage, dental crowns may provide an ideal solution. Crowns offer both cosmetic and oral health benefits, reinforcing the structure of a tooth while helping to make a smile look whole and natural again.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken or fractured teeth.
- Cosmetic enhancement.
- Decayed teeth.
- Fractured fillings.
- Large fillings.
- Tooth has a root canal.
What is the procedure
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for a few days until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
The crown procedure can immediately improve your ability to drink and chew,
protect your tooth from further complications or injury and enhance the appearance of your teeth.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

3 stages of procedure

Our well qualified and experienced Dentist and dental assistants will not only assist in all phases of your dental care, but also provide you with a safe, clean, and comfortable visit.

Possible Consequences/ Precautions
Most patients require only local anaesthesia to remain comfortable during the crown preparation, shaping, and placement processes. Toothache and sensitivity after these procedures are also usually mild, but can be mitigated with a prescription for painkillers.
AMS recommendation for best results
On an immediate basis, you can usually expect your dental crown to:
- repair the damage incurred to your tooth
- improve your ability to drink and chew
- protect the tooth from further complications or injury
- enhance the appearance of your teeth, if you choose a tooth-colored material
The dental crown procedure generally involves two visits to the dentist over the course of one or two weeks.
Number of sessions
Normally, two sittings are required.
Results will last for
The results of dental crowns are typically very good, but your unique success with this treatment will depend on the severity of your tooth's condition, your dentist's expertise, and the material you choose for your crown. Most dental crowns are durable and last many years with proper care.
With adequate dental hygiene and regular dentist visits, your dental crown should last between ten and 15 years.

Quick Facts For Crowns & Bridges
Are you the right fit for the procedure?
Your dentist may recommend a dental crown if:
- Your teeth are severely discoloured and unlikely to respond well to professional teeth whitening
- Your teeth are misshapen or disproportionally small
- Your teeth are cracked or chipped
- Your teeth require additional support and strength
- Your teeth are severely decayed or otherwise damaged
- You are unable to comfortably chew food
- Your bite is not aligned properly
- The chewing surfaces of your teeth are worn down due to bruxism (teeth grinding)
- The damage to your tooth is too much to support a filling, inlay, or onlay
- You have undergone root canal therapy and need to protect the remaining tooth structure
- You are replacing a single missing tooth with a dental implant
A suitable candidate for dental crowns must also have healthy gums, because the restorations will work in tandem with the remaining healthy portion of the tooth or dental implant to provide support for the crown.
Are you ready to take decision or need help? Travel with decision makers.
In procedures where prior consent of immediate family is required, you should travel with the decision makers.
The first step in the dental crown process is diagnosing the issue causing damage to your tooth. To do so, your dentist will complete a detailed oral and dental health exam, looking for signs of decay or infection. If you are already missing a tooth and looking to get a dental implant, your dentist will assess the condition of your jawbone, as well.
In addition to a visual exam, he or she may also take X-rays to look at the underlying structure of your tooth roots and bones. Based on the information he or she collects during examination, your dentist will make a recommendation for your treatment plan.

FAQs Crowns & Bridges
- How thick are dental crowns?
The dimensions of dental crowns depend largely on the materials used. In general, the thickness can range from 0.5 to two millimetres on the sides and at least 1.5 millimetres on the chewing surface. Metal crowns are often thinner than porcelain crowns. Dental crowns may also need to be thicker or thinner to accommodate particular tooth damage or complications from treatment.
- Will I be able to tell the crown apart from my teeth?
If you choose a metal crown, it will be easy to tell the crown apart from your teeth. However, tooth-coloured crowns can often be made to look indistinguishable from your existing teeth, especially from a distance. The dental crown may feel slightly different than your natural tooth in your mouth, especially if it is not adequately polished or properly fitted. If your crown bothers you, speak to your dentist about how to improve its shape and texture.
- Can I whiten my dental crown?
No. Dental crown materials do not respond to whitening treatments, meaning that the crown will be a different colour among the lightened natural enamel. If you want to whiten your teeth, most dentists recommend that you do so before you receive a dental crown, or that you replace the crown with a lighter material as part of your smile makeover process.
- What are my alternatives to a dental crown?
In most cases, dentists recommend dental crowns to restore teeth when other options are insufficient. If you have a missing tooth, you may also be able to replace it with a dental bridge, which typically includes two dental crowns. Fillings, inlays, or onlays may repair decayed teeth if the area of damage is small enough. Cracked or chipped teeth can sometimes be restored with dental bonding instead of a crown, although these treatments can also be combined. If you are using dental crowns as a purely cosmetic treatment, you may be able to achieve a similar whitening, straightening effect with porcelain veneers or a combination of orthodontia and teethwhitening.
- Can I get orthodontia if I have a crown?
Many adults are now pursuing straightening treatments later in life when they already have restorations like crowns. Fortunately, you can correct crookedness even if you have dental crowns. While possible to use, traditional braces may not attach correctly to crown materials like metal or porcelain, so many dentists and orthodontists recommend using clear plastic aligners that simply slip over the teeth if you have dental crowns. If you are considering replacing your dental crown at the time of orthodontia, most orthodontists recommend waiting until your treatment is complete. In rare cases, orthodontic treatment can disrupt the placement of your crowns.
