White Crowns

Tooth-Coloured White Crowns

A crown (often known as a ‘cap’ to patients) is a tooth shaped restoration  that is placed over a prepared tooth. It is mainly used to restore a natural tooth’s shape, size and also to improve the appearance of your smile. There are different types of tooth-coloured crowns available, some even included under NHS treatment.

  • Metal-Bonded Crowns – Also known as Metal-Ceramic Crowns. These are crowns which have white porcelain-fused to metal and are regularly used within NHS dentistry.
  • Metal-Free Crowns – Also known as ‘white’ or ‘tooth-coloured’ crowns.  These do not have any component of metal and are made from specialist materials such as zirconia, e-max, lava etc  thereby allowing far superior aesthetics and can readily match the shine and translucency of natural teeth.
  • Gold Crowns – available using real gold or alternative metals.

Crown Treatments

Treatments times for crowns can be anything for as little as one week to a few weeks.  A crown may be needed for a variety of reasons:

  1. A tooth that has been broken or damaged.
  2. A tooth that has had a root filling put in (a crown is needed to protect the tooth)
  3. For aesthetic reasons, patients looking to cover up any discoloured fillings.
  4. To protect a weak tooth from breaking e.g. following endodontic treatment
