Dental crowns

A dental crown is a ‘cap’ that is fixed over your natural tooth to help strengthen the surface of a weak or heavily filled tooth. Once placed, the tooth shaped cap protects the weakened tooth beneath it, helping you to chew better without worrying about your tooth breaking. In short, once the crown has been fixed, it functions, looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Reviews From Our Dentistry Patients

What are Dental Crowns and what is the process?

Dental crowns can be made of different materials and can be tooth coloured to seamlessly blend in with other teeth in the mouth. They are mainly used to fix broken down, fractured or damaged teeth and as long as you clean and maintain them well, they can last for many years.

During your initial consultation at Dental House in Pinner, one of our Dentists will do a through consultation and full dental check-up where we will make sure any questions you have are answered. Every treatment is bespoke to each individual depending on the tooth and the complexity of the treatment, after your initial consultation we will provide you with a written treatment plan as well as a private estimate. The treatment may be split into 2 separate appointments to make it as comfortable as possible for you.
