Replace the top visible portion of a tooth
Dental Crowns in Fairfield NSW
Dental crowns repair and restore teeth to their former glory.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a popular method to replace the top visible portion of tooth. They are used to reinforce and guard the existing tooth structure and can be used to increase the aesthetic appearance of teeth.
When Are Dental Crowns Used?
- A tooth that has more filling than tooth in it. Eventually, the structure of the remaining tooth will not be able to support the filling anymore
- Fractures in teeth
- Discolouration, staining and poor aesthetic appearance
- Subsequent to root canal treatment, teeth can become brittle and have a higher chance of fracture and in these cases can be guarded by a dental crown
- When a bridge is used to substitute for absent teeth, the neighbouring teeth need crowns in order to create a 'bridge' and support the substitute teeth
What Are The Benefits Of A Dental Crown?
Porcelain crowns reinforce and guard the existing tooth structure and can be used to improve the function and aesthetics of teeth. Crowns can be made from a number of materials however porcelain is best to avoid the appearance of black lines appearing underneath older, cheaper metallic crowns.

Your Dental Crown & Bridge Treatment
A typical crown is fitted over two appointments.
The type of crown used will depend on a number of factors including strength, position and visual concerns. We work with expert ceramicists in Sydney to design a crown to suit your personal tooth style and budget.
You will be given a local anaesthetic to ensure that the procedure is pain-free. The existing tooth is then prepared in a precise manner to connect with the new crown.
An impression and mould of the crown is created so the ceramist knows the exact size shape and colour to create the new crown.
A temporary crown will then be placed on the tooth. The temporary crown is made of a plastic material and is used to simply guard the tooth and gum tissue until the second appointment.
The temporary crown will be taken out and the cement used to secure it will be removed from the tooth. We will adjust and fit the final crown to perfection and assess the visual look of the crown.
Once we are pleased with the shape and aesthetics of the crown, we will secure it to the tooth using a permanent cementation technique.
What Is The Recovery Period After A Crown?
Once your new crown has been placed, it is common that you may experience slight sensitivity to cold food and beverages in the following few weeks.
