 Dental Crowns In Harley Street

Dental crowns are artificial coverings that are fitted over the remaining part of a prepared tooth. This not only repairs, but also strengthens the damaged tooth as well as helping to prevent any future problems.

Having a dental crown fitted will help to improve the function of your teeth, as well as looking very realistic.

Crowns are fitted as part of a restoration for broken teeth, or teeth that have been weakened by a bigger filling or decay. Generally crowns are used to restore teeth, however they can also be used as part of a smile makeover to enhance your smile aesthetics.

At London Braces Clinic, we exclusively use the highest quality crown materials. Porcelain is the favourite choice for its natural, glossy finish.

Our crowns can also be coloured to match the natural colour of your teeth, resulting in the ultimate aesthetically pleasing look.

It is our goal to match you to the best treatment for your needs, so at your consultation your dentist will provide a full assessment to ensure you are suitable for a dental crown.

Your dentist may feel that you would benefit more from an alternate treatment, however all of your options will be discussed so that you can make an informed decision before any treatments are carried out.

Am I Suitable for a Dental Crown Treatment?

A dental crown could be used for various reasons, such as:

  • Helping to hold a bridge or denture securely in place.
  • Improving discoloured fillings
  • Strengthening a tooth that has suffered from dental decay
  • Protecting a root canal
  • Protecting or stabilising a weak or cracked tooth

What Happens During A Dental Crown Treatment?

Your dental crown treatment will be carried out over two appointments.

At the first, the chosen tooth will be prepared and cleaned, removing any decayed tissue. An impression is made of your tooth which will become a template for the new crown, resulting in an exact fit.

Between appointments, you will be fitted with a temporary crown. At your second appointment, this will be replaced for your custom, made to fit crown.

We are proud to have a highly skilled and experienced team of clinicians providing our clients with the best quality crowns. You can choose from high-end cosmetic, full porcelain crowns, to CAD CAM manufactured crowns, featuring strength and a fantastic fit.

At London Braces Clinic, we use only the highest quality materials to ensure maximum functionality and the best results.

Will The Treatment Hurt?

To prepare your tooth, your dentist will need to remove some enamel. Beforehand you will be given an anaesthetic to numb the area for treatment, ensuring you will be as comfortable as possible.

Once the anaesthetic has worked, you will not be able to feel anything for the duration of the treatment.

After the numbness has worn off, you may have some sensitivity to hot and cold.

  • Much of the original tooth may need to be removed to fit a crown, meaning it may not be a suitable treatment for everyone

  • It is possible to chip a crown, and as a result would need to be replaced.
