The benefits of dental crowns

Restored Functionality

With dental crowns, you can enjoy the foods you love without discomfort. They restore the strength and functionality of damaged teeth, making chewing easier and more comfortable.

Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal

Dental crowns can dramatically improve your smile. They cover discolored or misshapen teeth, providing a natural, healthy appearance that boosts your confidence and self-esteem.

Long-Lasting Protection

Dental crowns offer durable protection for vulnerable teeth. By covering the entire tooth surface, they shield it from further damage or decay—ensuring lasting oral health.

The dental crown treatment process


Exam & Consultation

Your journey towards a healthier smile begins with an initial consultation. Here, your dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your needs and expectations, and determine if a dental crown is the best solution for you.


Tooth Preparation

Once it's decided that a dental crown is needed, the next step involves preparing your tooth. This usually means reshaping it to ensure the crown fits perfectly. Rest assured; this process is carried out under local anesthesia for maximum comfort.


Crown Creation & Placement

After taking an impression of your prepared tooth, a custom-made crown is created in a dental lab by our in-house master ceramist to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. We also offer same-day options for increased convenience. Once the crown has been completed, it's carefully placed over your tooth - restoring its function and appearance.
