Dental crowns are a proven restoration method for teeth that have suffered severe damage extending to the gum line. A tooth essentially consists of the root, which is hidden beneath the gum line, and the crown, which is the visible part above it.
Serving as a protective cap that encases the affected tooth, a dental crown offers a reliable long-term solution for reinstating your teeth’s functionality. If you have damaged incisors or canines, getting a dental crown on front teeth can significantly enhance your smile’s appearance and functionality. They are apt at correcting:
At The Dental Lounges, routine checkups enable us to conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth, utilising advanced x-ray technology when necessary to discern if a crown is needed. Our crown fitting procedure is carried out with meticulous precision, ensuring both comfort and accuracy, thereby optimally restoring the functionality and aesthetics of your tooth.
Dental crowns come in a variety of materials, and your dentist at The Dental Lounges can help you choose the best one for your needs.
A ceramic crown is constructed completely of porcelain or another form of ceramic material. These are utilised for front tooth restorations, and they are particularly popular in this region because of their ability to mix in with the natural tooth colour.
Resin crowns are suited for patients looking for a temporary solution. Moreover, they are more affordable compared to other types, making them a popular choice for individuals mindful of dental crown cost.
White teeth caps or porcelain crowns can seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, providing an aesthetically pleasing solution to dental issues. It’s also exceptionally long-lasting.
For those looking for a durable and long-lasting option, a gold dental crown can be an excellent choice due to its strength and high biocompatibility. Additionally, it does not fracture nor does it wear away the tooth, even though it forms a tight link with the tooth.
This crown is composed of non-noble metals that are very corrosion resistant and contribute to the overall strength of the crown. It also necessitates the removal of the least amount of viable tooth structure before the fitting.
At The Dental Lounges, we have expertise in replacing crowns on front teeth, helping patients regain their confident and radiant smiles. When choosing which type of crown is best for you, we will evaluate criteria like durability, strength, cost-effectiveness, temporary versus permanent restorations, and aesthetic improvement.
In the long run, dental crowns are a great choice since they are durable and often last for at least 5-15 years, increasing patient satisfaction with the procedure. Dental crowns outperform other dental restoration treatments in terms of overall success rate.FIND OUT MORE

Before we begin, we will construct a temporary crown using an imprint of the tooth.
After preparing the tooth, we normally insert a specific string and glue along the gum line to assist and gently push the gum away from the tooth, revealing the crown margins.
The scan will be analysed to verify that the proper space was made, that the margins are apparent, and that the colours match.
The exposed region of the tooth where the enamel has been removed will next be protected with a temporary crown.
The permanent crown will be fitted after it has been assessed in terms of comfort and appearance.
With the use of a local anaesthetic, the prep should feel no different from a filling. A local anaesthetic would not be required if a post crown is being created on a tooth that lacks a nerve.
Brushing and flossing regularly are essential, particularly to maintain healthy gums near the base of your crown. Avoiding too many hard or abrasive foods is also suggested since they could wear down the crown more quickly than a natural tooth.
A dental technician will use the imprints and information about your tooth's colour to make the crow for you. To ensure that the crown fits precisely, they will create a model of your mouth and construct the crown using this model.
There is no "downtime" after the placement of your crown. Because the procedure is non-invasive and doesn't cause any significant discomfort or downtime, you may return to your normal daily activities right away.
You will be conscious of the form of the crown since it will be somewhat different from the shape of your tooth before it is capped. If you feel any discomfort, it should subside after a few days, and you should not even be aware of it.
