A Dental Crown is cap placed over a tooth used to cover and protect a natural tooth. They can be used to protect damaged teeth and improve the appearance of teeth. Once a dental crown is fitted over the affected tooth it acts like a helmet (cap) protecting it from further damage. They are held in place with strong cements and can last many years with the correct oral hygiene.

Common indications for Dental Crowns

  • As a protective cover for badly decayed or fractured teeth
  • As a definitive restoration for teeth with large fillings thereby providing additional strength to the tooth.
  • To correct minor problems in natural teeth such as spacing and irregular shape or severe discolouration.
  • To cover a dental implant, a solution for missing teeth.

Types of dental crowns and materials

Crowns can be made from a variety of materials. They can be made from plastic, ceramic or metal alloys. A combination of metal and ceramic is also possible to maximise strength and simulate the appearance of natural teeth. Every case is different and your dentist will advise on which material is best suited for your tooth.


Through the years materials for crowns have improved and evolved. Now with the latest technology the new Emax and Zirconia crowns have no metal components to give the most natural and visually pleasing crowns ever! The most exciting feature of these new materials are that they are extremely strong and durable, more so than traditional crowns. The combination of their good looks and high strength makes these materials truly remarkable.
