Dental Crowns in Westmead

Patient in dental chairFor patients who are missing teeth, have had a prior root canal, or those who simply want to correct a chipped or cracked tooth’s appearance, a dental crown may be an ideal solution.

Dental crowns are crafted to match your smile perfectly in colour, tooth shape and bite. They’ll also look, feel and function exactly like your real teeth. In fact, it’s likely your own friends and family members won’t be able to tell you have a crown – they’ll simply comment on how beautiful your smile is.

What Are Crowns?

Crowns, or “caps” as some call them, are custom-made covers for teeth that have had a root canal (leaving very little tooth structure), cracked or weakened teeth or teeth that are so decayed that a regular filling isn’t sufficient.

Generally, we use a porcelain material to make the crown because it blends best with your other teeth. It typically takes two appointments to fit a crown.

At the first appointment, we prepare the tooth to ensure the crown is able to fit over it snuggly. Next, we mold an impression of the tooth so that the crown fits between the teeth on either side; and is the same size and shape as the one being capped. At the end of this visit, we attach a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is ready.

At the second visit, we cement the permanent crown and make sure that it feels comfortable and natural and that your bite is correct. That’s it!

‘Should I Get a Dental Crown?’

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my crown last?

Your crown should last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and routine dental examinations and cleanings.

Is getting a crown painful?

Not at all. You likely won’t feel a thing and are invited to relax or listen to music on your phone as we carry out the treatment. A general [anesthetic] will be used.

What is the cost of a crown?

It’s difficult to say until we see you in the practice to determine the best course of care, which is unique for each person. Once determined, we’ll present you with a quote so there are never any surprises.
