You have various options when it comes to crowns, and your dentist can suggest which ones are best for your teeth. Metals, such as gold alloys, are often used to create prefabricated crowns that are used on permanent teeth. Other crowns are made from resin, porcelain or ceramic. There are benefits and drawbacks for each, and some crown materials will last longer than others. In general, the longest-lasting crowns are metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal.

 

The process of getting a crown made involves filing or filling the tooth to the proper shape and getting accurate impressions made, so the crowns are custom-fit. A temporary crown will usually be put in place to protect your teeth. During your next visit, the temporary crown will be removed so that the dentist can set the permanent one in using a special adhesive. A local anaesthetic is usually used so that you won’t feel a thing, but general sedation is available for those who would prefer to sleep through the procedure.

 

When you visit our dental practice near Annerley, we can help run you through the process so that you understand each step and can ask us whatever questions you may have. Your comfort is our top priority, so we will go the extra mile to ensure that you are confident in your decision and are at ease during the procedure.

I had a filling with dr Yuen and Summer, they were both great. Dr Yuen was incredibly informative which made the process much more comfortable. They were great during the procedure, easily the most comfortable I've felt in the dentists chair!

Easy to book online, instant confirmation and great follow up from reception. ❤️ Dr Zen didn’t race through a consult like a checklist, that was my first impression! I usually feel like there’s a ‘procedure’ at the dentist and the time limit. He took excellent photos (if you can call tooth decay 🦷 photos excellent) to show and carefully explain what my treatment plan should look like and most importantly why!!
