Crowns in Melbourne CBD

illustration of a dental crownA crown is an extremely durable tooth restoration that is used to protect a weak, worn or cracked tooth or to disguise a discoloured tooth.

Crowns are used for teeth that are

  • Cracked
  • Broken
  • Heavily filled or repeatedly ‘patched up’
  • Root canal treated
  • Worn
  • Discoloured or misshapen

From a function perspective, we can address worn, flat or shorter teeth, or teeth that have repeatedly broken or cracked, and been patched up and repaired over and over. To break that cycle, having a crown can prevent frequent visits to repair a tooth.

What Are Some Benefits?

Crowns can be bonded to your teeth and are one of the strongest restorations that we have as dentists. If a tooth is weak, cracked or has been repeatedly repaired, placing a crown can prevent further damage to your tooth and ultimately prevent loss of a tooth. They are usually recommended if you have worn your teeth down to rebuild them back to their pre-worn height. Multiple crowns are often required where tooth wear is a concern. In addition to protecting and rebuilding teeth, crowns can be used to improve aesthetics. The appearance of a porcelain crown replicates natural tooth enamel and can be used to enhance a smile or provide a more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are crowns made of?

Usually, the preferred material of choice is Porcelain. The porcelain is reinforced and provides an extremely strong, natural looking, tooth-coloured crown but they can also be made of gold alloy or even a metal and porcelain combined.

How long do they last?

If taken care of properly, average crowns last 10- 12 years, however we are seeing our crowns still going strong for 20 years and more.

How long will it take to get my crown?

A crown is usually completed over two visits. In between appointments, you will have a temporary crown to protect your tooth. If multiple crowns are required, our dentists will discuss with you the option having them done simultaneously, saving you extra visits and your valuable time.

Do you offer payment plans?

We offer a variety of payment plans to suit you. If you would like to know more about payment plans, please discuss this with one of our team.

Any invasive or surgical procedure may carry risks. Before moving forward, it is recommended that you seek a second opinion from an appropriately licensed medical professional.
