Ashburton Dental Crowns

Illustration of dental crownsAre you looking for a simple way to improve your smile? Crowns are available at Cambridge Dental and serve a variety of needs:

  • Strengthen teeth weakened by large fillings, decay or a root canal
  • Protect cracked, fractured or worn teeth
  • Improve the alignment, shape or colour of a tooth

The crowns created at our practice are individually handcrafted by our experienced dental technician to give your smile a natural, healthy look.

Materials Available

There are several different materials that can be selected for a crown. Depending on your particular needs, we’ll advise you on the best options for your situation. They can be all metal, tooth-coloured, ceramic or composite.

The Procedure

No matter what your goals are in receiving a crown, the procedure involves two appointments.

Preparation

A local anaesthetic can be given to numb the area. Then, your dentist shapes the tooth’s outer surface to suit the crown. Moulds are taken of teeth with putty placed into trays to understand your bite and to custom-create your crown. You’ll be given a temporary crown to protect tooth structure until you return, usually after 2-3 weeks.

Fitting

A local anaesthetic can be given to numb the area. We’ll remove your temporary crown, then fit your new one in. When you’re satisfied with the appearance, we’ll permanently cement it into place, carefully checking your bite for a perfect look and feel.
