Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, commonly referred to as caps, are custom-made dental restorations that cover and protect damaged or decayed teeth. They produce a seamless and attractive effect because they are made to closely resemble the natural size, shape, and colour of your existing teeth. Dental crowns are used to restore the functionality, strength, and appearance of a tooth that has been compromised due to decay, trauma, or other oral health issues.

At our dental hospital, we take pride in having a team of highly skilled and experienced dentists who specialize in dental crowns. Our dentists understand the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile, and they work closely with each patient to develop personalized treatment plans and deliver exceptional results.

When Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Tooth Decay

Severe tooth decay can compromise the structural integrity of a tooth. Dental crowns provide a protective layer that prevents further decay and strengthens the tooth.

Fractured or Cracked Teeth

Teeth that are cracked, fractured, or weakened due to trauma or injury can benefit from the added support and protection offered by dental crowns.

Root Canal Treatment

After a root canal procedure, the treated tooth becomes more brittle. A dental crown provides the necessary reinforcement to prevent future fractures.

Cosmetic Improvements

Dental crowns can be used cosmetically to enhance the look of discoloured, irregularly shaped, or malformed teeth, resulting in a more attractive smile.

The Dental Crown Process

The process of getting a dental crown typically involves the following steps:


During your initial visit, our dentists will carefully examine your teeth and gums to determine if a dental crown is the appropriate treatment option for you. They will discuss your treatment goals, answer any questions you may have, and present you with a personalized treatment plan.

Tooth Preparation:

To ensure a proper fit, the dentist will carefully prepare the affected tooth by removing any decay or damage. If necessary, a dental filling or root canal treatment may be performed prior to crown placement.


Once the tooth is prepared, our dentists will take a detailed impression of your teeth, which will be used by our dental laboratory technicians to create a custom-made crown that, in terms of size, colour, and form, precisely mimics your natural teeth.

Temporary Crown:

A temporary crown will be positioned to cover the prepared tooth while your permanent crown is being created. It is important to follow all the instructions provided by our dentists to ensure the temporary crown remains secure and functional until the final crown is ready.

Crown Placement:

Once your customized dental crown is ready, you will return to our dental hospital for the final placement. Our dentists will remove the temporary crown, carefully clean the prepared tooth, and check the fit, color, and appearance of the permanent crown. Once the fit is verified, the crown will be permanently cemented in place.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

The following stages are commonly involved in receiving a dental crown:

Long-lasting Results:

With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years, providing durable and reliable tooth restoration.
