Ceramic Crowns

Love your smile again

Ceramic Crowns

Perhaps you have a large fractured filling, a tooth that had a root canal treatment, or maybe your tooth is discoloured and you want to improve the appearance. You may also have a busy schedule at work (or the golf course) and can’t spend hours at the dentist. So, we think it’s time you considered CEREC® ceramic crowns – prepared, crafted and fitted in one appointment!

Advances in the strength and appearance of ceramic crowns have made them the leading choice in restoring damaged teeth to their former splendour. A tooth that has been damaged by root canal treatment, grinding, decay or fracture is likely to break from the stress of daily use. But a ceramic crown strengthens your tooth by providing 360 degrees of coverage. Ceramic crowns are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling. When you receive a crown, you will notice it effectively improves your tooth condition by:

  • Helping strengthen a heavily-restored tooth to prevent future fracture
  • Restoring structural integrity after loss of tooth structure
  • Relieving pain from any damage or fractures
  • Restoring form and function
  • Improving aesthetics

What to expect

Single Appointment

Yes, it is absolutely true – you can have your final crown today. We are a CEREC® clinic, placing quality eMax™ ceramic crowns, inlays and overlays since 2012. To get started, your dentist will prepare your tooth by removing all decay, old filling material to leave a healthy blank canvas. Our team will then scan your tooth to create a digital three-dimensional model which they then use to start the designing process.

During this time you are free to relax and watch a movie on Netflix. Or maybe a short documentary rather, since a single crown may be done in as little as 45 minutes! While you are enjoying some well-deserved rest, we will be hard at work designing, milling and glazing your new ceramic crown.

At the time of placement we will use a game-changing bonding system to fit your final crown. 5 Minutes is all it takes and once bonding has been done, you are free to use your crown as you please.

Let's take a moment to honour the engineers who make us look good. Because without them, you'd still have impression material stuck to your lip, nursing a temporary crown whilst clearing your diary for the final placement in two weeks' time.
