Porcelain Crowns Return Aesthetics and Function

Customized Restorations at Smiles in Currambine

A full coverage cap, or crown, may be a good option for a damaged tooth.

A full coverage cap, or crown, may be a good option for a damaged tooth.

When a tooth is too badly damaged to repair with a filling, a full coverage crown (sometimes called a “cap”) may be necessary. Crowns, unlike fillings, cover the entire surface of a tooth up to your gumlines. Our dentists may recommend a crown if:

  • A large portion of the tooth is broken or decayed
  • You have just had a root canal completed
  • There are aesthetic concerns
  • Excessive grinding/bruxism has worn the tooth down

3D Printing Technology

In addition to providing traditional porcelain crowns, Smiles in Currambine also has on-site 3D printing technology, which allows us to recreate aesthetic, functional crowns in fewer visits. Our dentists have extensive experience using this technology, which allows us to provide more efficient, attentive care to each of our patients.

We’ll Keep You Comfortable

Sitting through a crown doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Yes, it can take longer than a filling to complete, but it doesn’t have to be painful. Your comfort is our first priority at all times. We have a variety of sedation options available to ensure that your treatment is as relaxing as possible.

If you suspect that your tooth may need a crown, don’t wait until it’s too late. Contact Smiles in Currambine straightaway to discuss how to save your tooth for years to come.
