Protect and enhance your smile
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are designed to protect teeth from further damage, and can be used to strengthen damaged teeth or even repair them if required. They can be made from porcelain, resin or other materials depending on the strength required.
Crowns can be used to cover the entire surface of a tooth or only at the front, as a ‘cap’. They are generally cemented on to the existing tooth, but can also be bonded directly to it.
Restore your smile with natural looking and durable crowns that leave your smile not only functional but beautiful. We offer a range of materials for crowns and we can help you select the right material for your specific treatment plan.

Used for restorative and cosmetic purposes, a crown can help an ailing tooth regain strength and integrity while also returning its natural beauty. We approach crowns with a level of precision and skill rarely seen in the industry.
A crown will give good support to a tooth damaged by decay.
If a tooth is worn away or starting to wear, a crown will offer protection against further decay.
Hold It Together
If the tooth is severely cracked or broken, a crown will hold the tooth together, preventing more destruction.
A crown can improve the appearance of a tooth by changing its shape or even the color of the tooth.
Dental crowns have long been a solution to restore the look and function of a damaged tooth. These tooth-shaped caps help restore your teeth and improve your smile.
The main types of crowns used in dentistry include:
All Porcelain Crowns.
Porcelain Fused-to-Metal Crowns (PFM)
The average lifespan for a well-maintained dental crown is typically around 15 years. However, when taken care of properly, it is common to see them last upwards of 25-30 years.
Dental crowns are a good long-term option because they are durable and usually last for at least 5-15 years, which increases patient satisfaction with the treatment. Treatment with dental crowns has a high success rate with respect to either other dental restoration methods or no treatment at all.
Cost. One disadvantage of crowns can be the cost.
Risk for Nerve Damage. There is a possibility of nerve damage if a tooth is filed too thin.
Sensitivity. Dental crowns can also be destructive to other teeth if the crown is too abrasive.
Potential Need for Further Repairs.
