Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns are a common dental treatment used for both functional and cosmetic reasons.


Understanding Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped prosthetic that is placed over a prepared tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are commonly used to:

  • Protect Weak Teeth: Crowns can protect weak or fractured teeth from further damage and provide added strength and stability.
  • Restore Damaged Teeth: Crowns can restore teeth that are severely decayed, damaged, or worn down to improve their function and aesthetics.
  • Cover Discoloured or Misshapen Teeth: Crowns can cover discoloured, misshapen, or aesthetically displeasing teeth to enhance their appearance and restore your confidence in your smile.
  • Anchor Dental Bridges: Crowns are used to anchor dental bridges in place, replacing missing teeth and restoring the integrity of your smile.


The Dental Crown Procedure

Consultation and Treatment Planning

During your initial consultation at Facial Harmony Skin & Dental, our experienced dentists will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and recommend the most appropriate crown material based on your needs and preferences.

Tooth Preparation

Before placing a dental crown, the affected tooth will be prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel to create space for the crown. Our dental team will take precise impressions of your prepared tooth to ensure a custom-fit crown that blends seamlessly with your natural smile.

Temporary Crown Placement (Optional)

In some cases, a temporary crown may be placed over the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental laboratory. This temporary crown protects the tooth and maintains its function and aesthetics until the final restoration is ready.

Permanent Crown Placement

Once your custom dental crown is ready, it will be carefully bonded to the prepared tooth using dental cement or adhesive. Our dental team will ensure proper fit, function, and aesthetics before permanently cementing the crown in place.


  • Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing, flossing, dental check-ups and cleaning are essential to maintain the health of the crowned tooth and the surrounding gums.
  • Avoidance of Excessive Force: Patients are typically advised to avoid biting on hard objects to prevent damage to the crown.


Advantages of Dental Crowns:

  • Restoration of Function: Crowns restore the functionality of a damaged or weakened tooth.
  • Aesthetics: Porcelain and ceramic crowns can help provide an improved yet natural appearance of teeth.
  • Durability: Crowns are durable and can withstand normal biting and chewing forces.
  • Longevity: With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years.
