We thank you for considering the health of our staff and other patients.

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps which fit over your teeth. Fitted correctly, they look exactly like perfect, natural teeth. Crowns provide strong, attractive, long term protection for your teeth.

Teeth with large fillings (and/or root fillings) are weak and can break when you bite. They can have hidden cracks which make them tender to bite on or sensitive to hot or cold. A crown will protect a heavily filled tooth. Crowns can also be used cosmetically to improve the appearance of teeth

Crowns are usually made from porcelain and the colour will be matched to your existing teeth. The porcelain tooth might have a gold or other metal core for strength.

Dr Rand Razaq will reduce the size of the existing filling and tooth to make room for the new crown, then take a mould which is sent to our dental technician who creates the crown. The filling in the tooth to be crowned is completely removed to check for decay and to rebuild the tooth for increased strength. Our dentist will fit a temporary crown to cover your tooth until the permanent crown is ready for fitting.
