Are your teeth chipped, severely discoloured or simply out of shape?
If so, a dental crown (also known as a tooth crown) is a good treatment to help restore your smile.
A tooth crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ placed over a tooth to restore its strength, shape, size and to improve its appearance. Crowns can be all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

Why would you need a dental crown?
Tooth crowns are essential to repair any badly damaged or broken down tooth to prevent its loss due to decay or further breakage. Teeth that had root canal treatment, large cavities, moderate to severe fractures, advanced wear, large failing fillings or heavily broken down can not usually be resorted with something as simple as a filling.
At our dental crowns clinic in Hampshire, we use advanced and comprehensive measures to restore such teeth. Dental crown treatment is one of them. There are mutable options for a dental crowns treatment, the most popular of all, are porcelain crowns & zirconia crowns, both types will fully cover and protect the damaged tooth. They are a great option as these crowns are aesthetically pleasing and highly durable.

Frequently asked questions
How long does a dental crown last?
Depending on how well you maintain your dental hygiene and other mouth-based habits (eg. teeth grinding), dental crowns can last between 5 and 20 years.
Are tooth crowns painful?
Once a crown is placed on your tooth, there shouldn’t be any pain, discomfort, or sensitivity. During the treatment, we can offer sedation for nervous patients.
What is the difference between a crown and a cap?
There is no difference between the term tooth ‘cap’ or tooth ‘crown’.
Dental crowns vs dental veneers?
The difference between crowns vs veneers is the thickness of the material. Although crowns are thicker than veneers, they are usually the best option for patients who has a large filling, a root canal or have cracked teeth.
