Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns, also known as ‘caps,’ are used to repair broken or weak teeth, or to improve a tooth’s appearance. 

There are three main types:

  • Metal dental crowns (silver or gold colour)
  • Porcelain bonded to metal dental crowns (tooth-coloured with a metal core)
  • All porcelain dental crowns (tooth-coloured, metal-free, and natural-looking)
  • Our team of dentists will help you choose the right type for you.

    During the procedure:

Dental Crowns restore and enhance your teeth, providing a healthy, beautiful smile. Previously, dental crowns had a metal core for strength, but this often led to a dull appearance and visible metal edges. Modern dentistry now allows us to offer you metal-free dental crowns made from solid porcelain or Zirconia, matching the strength of traditional ones. Thanks to advanced cements, these dental crowns mimic natural teeth much better. If you prefer a more natural look, metal-free dental crowns may be the right choice for you!

Your Questions Answered


If you have a damaged or weak tooth a dental crown may be a promising idea as it will provide protection to your tooth. You may also want one to cover a filling or root canal, protect a cracked tooth or improve the appearance of misshapen or discoloured tooth.

Prices vary depending on material and location. For the most accurate and relevant prices it is best to discuss your options with us during a consultation.

A dental crown does not typically cause pain. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia. You may experience discomfort later, but this should subside within a few days.

There are several types because they are made from various materials each with their own advantages and suitability for different situations. The choice of dental crown type depends on different factors such as location of the tooth, aesthetic preferences and the Strength and durability needed. We will help you decide what is best for you depending on your individual circumstances and choice.
