Natural-coloured protection for damaged or decayed teeth

A dental crown is a protective cover fitted over a natural tooth. They are most commonly placed over damaged, decayed or unsightly teeth to regain both the structure and functionality. The crown acts like a helmet, protecting the affected tooth from further damage.

When would a dental crown be needed?

  • A protective cover for badly decayed or fractured teeth
  • A restoration for teeth with large fillings, providing additional strength to the tooth
  • To correct minor problems in natural teeth, such as spacing, chips, decay and discolouration
  • To cover a dental implant, a solution for missing teeth

What are dental crowns made of?

Traditionally, crowns were made of metal or porcelain fused to metal. Although strong, these crowns were not very aesthetically pleasing and not a cosmetic choice.

Over the years, dental crowns have improved and benefitted from new technology. At Docklands Dental House, we use Emax and Zirconia ceramic crowns, which have no metal components and are the most natural looking crowns available. The most exciting feature of these new materials is that they are extremely strong and durable, even more so than traditional metal crowns.

The combination of good looks and high strength makes Emax and Zirconia crowns truly remarkable.
