Giving Your Smile a Makeover Lewisham Dental Practice Inner Banner

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over the teeth to provide strength, shape, and aesthetics. At our dental clinic in Lewisham, we use beautiful dental crowns to restore your smile.

What are crowns used for?

  • Restoring damaged or weak teeth
  • Protecting root-canaled teeth
  • Attaching dental bridges
  • Covering dental implants
  • Improving misshapen teeth
  • Filling large cavities

What are they made of?

Your skilled cosmetic dentist in Lewisham uses a range of materials to create high-quality dental crowns:

  • Porcelain - used on the teeth that shown when you smile
  • Metal covered with porcelain - provides added strength
  • Glass - used on teeth anywhere in the mouth.
  • Ceramic - a durable, and natural-looking material
  • Gold-alloy - provides the back teeth with much needed strength

What does treatment involve?

Step 1: Your dentist in Lewisham will file down your teeth in order to make room for the crowns.

Step 2: Impressions of your teeth will be taken at our dental surgery in Lewisham and sent to a dental technician. Your crowns will be skillfully custom-made to fit and match the shade of your teeth perfectly.

Step 3: You will be fitted with temporary crowns to wear before your permanent ones are ready.

Step 4: About one to two weeks later, you will have your permanent crowns fitted. Once you’re happy with how they look, they will be bonded to your teeth.

Does it hurt?

No. Your private dentist in Lewisham will perform the treatment under local anaesthetic. If, however, the tooth is without a nerve, anaesthetic may not even be needed.

What about aftercare?

Look after your crowns by brushing them after meals, and flossing them once a day. It’s also important to attend regular checkups at our dental practice in Lewisham. With good care, your crowns should last for decades.
