Crowns are bespoke teeth caps that cover defects and help restore appearance and function. They are often used as a means to save a damaged tooth from extraction, helping stabilise and secure it. Once a crown is fitted, it’s unlikely anyone else will be able to tell you’ve had the treatment carried out.
The colour, shape and size of the crown is carefully matched to your natural teeth. Our highly durable crowns are made from ceramic (E-max), porcelain, gold or zirconia. We’ll provide you with a temporary crown to wear while the permanent one is being made at the lab.Book appointment
Crowns are recommended in many situations, owing to their durable design. Some of their benefits include:
The treatment is usually recommended following a dental injury, such as a cracked, chipped or broken tooth, or to help restore a tooth damaged by decay or a procedure such as a root canal. At our West Sussex dental practice, our dentists will talk you through the treatment and whether it’s suitable for you and aim to recommend an alternative option if not.
They can last between 5-15 years, but this depends on your general lifestyle and level of oral care. You should also aim for regular dental check-ups to keep on top of the health of your smile.
Crowns are considered low-risk. If we need to provide a crown, we always aim to keep our tooth preparation as minimally invasive as possible.
Crowns help to restore a damaged tooth. They can create the illusion of an entirely natural tooth. As much of the original tooth is preserved as is possible, and in many cases, they can prevent the need for an extraction.
At our West Sussex dental practice, we do our best to price our treatments fairly and competitively. Visit our pricing page for more information.
