Dental Crowns in Mount Waverley

Do you have a broken or decayed tooth that you are wanting to restore back to the way it once looked… perhaps better?

A Dental Crown may be the solution for you!

A Dental Crown is a procedure that involves placing an artificial ‘tooth’, usually made out of porcelain and metal, that is fixed and placed over the existing broken or decayed tooth – creating a ‘crown’, as the name of the treatment suggests.

A Dental Crown treatment is usually recommended when much of the original tooth is missing to hold a filling. They can also be used to protect weak teeth from breaking, as well as to cover badly shaped teeth, as well as stained teeth.

The process looks like this:

  • The dentist will prepare your tooth by removing a layer of the outer surface of the tooth, ensuring that the crown that will be placed will be the same thickness as this removed layer.
  • A mould of your tooth is made, and is sent away to a technician to make the crown that will be used in place of your broken or decayed tooth. With modern-day dental advancements, this can be made to match the colour of your existing teeth like-for-like, so that it will blend in.
  • Once the mould has been made into a tailor-made crown, the crown will be placed and fixed above your broken or decayed tooth permanently using a cement or adhesive.
  • Prior to the permanent crown being installed, your dentist may install a temporary one whilst the permanent crown is being made.
  • You can then enjoy the teeth and smile that you once had!
Having completed Dental Crown treatment, some of the benefits you can expect include:
  • Improved appearance: Dental Crowns are made to replicate your existing teeth, so that they will look identical to your natural existing teeth.
  • Be able to eat easier: Dental Crowns work like your existing teeth, so you’ll be able to eat like you once did with a better-shaped tooth.
  • Confidence: Most importantly, you’ll think and feel better about yourself because the smile you once had is back for good!

We’ve seen too many people avoid treatment or opting for temporary fixes, and end up with major surgeries, huge medical bills and losing their teeth.
