What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are designed to mimic the look and function of your natural teeth, restoring your confidence and oral health. Our dental team uses advanced technology to create custom dental crowns that match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result. We will work with you to ensure that your dental crown fits comfortably and securely, providing the functionality and aesthetics you need.

Who Can Benefits from Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are recommended for individuals with various dental concerns. They are suitable for:

  1. Damaged Teeth: Crowns protect and restore teeth with significant damage from decay, fractures, or large fillings.
  2. Weakened Teeth: Teeth weakened by root canal therapy or structural compromise benefit from the reinforcement provided by crowns.
  3. Cosmetic Enhancements: Crowns are used for aesthetic improvements, covering discoloured, misshapen, or poorly aligned teeth.
  4. Large Fillings: Teeth with extensive fillings that compromise their structural integrity often require crowns for added support.
  5. Tooth Protection: Crowns act as shields for vulnerable teeth, preventing further damage and maintaining oral health.
  6. Post-Implant Placement: Dental crowns are placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth, restoring both function and appearance.

The Advantages of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer a multitude of advantages, making them a versatile and beneficial dental solution.

  1. Structural Support: Dental crowns provide robust protection and support for weakened or damaged teeth, preventing further deterioration.
  2. Aesthetic Enhancement: Crowns contribute to significant aesthetic improvements by covering discolored or misshapen teeth, resulting in an enhanced and more confident smile.
  3. Durability and Longevity: With their durable materials, dental crowns ensure prolonged functionality, supporting normal chewing and biting activities over an extended period.
  4. Preservation of Oral Health: Crowns play a crucial role in maintaining oral health, especially after procedures like root canals or large fillings, preserving the tooth’s integrity.
  5. Versatility: The versatility of dental crowns makes them a valuable option for addressing a range of dental issues, offering comprehensive and tailored solutions.

Why We Use E-MAX Dental Crowns

E-MAX is a modern all–ceramic system which is characterised by a few, coordinated, metal-free materials. Depending on the defect that needs to be repaired, your dentist will choose a material with the required strength from which a framework for the tooth replacement is fabricated.

After the all–ceramic framework has been constructed, the dental technician covers or “veneers” it with a special ceramic material. Regardless of the framework material used, the material that covers it is always the same. Therefore, two or more E-MAX restorations perfectly match each other in colour.

E-MAX is ideally suitable for veneers and crowns for front teeth.

Your smile deserves something more precious than metal. It brings out the natural beauty in your smile.

At Essential Dental Care, the journey to a restored smile with dental crowns begins at an affordable £595. Our transparent pricing reflects our commitment to making quality dental care accessible.

What are dental crowns made of?

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. The choice depends on the tooth’s location and your preferences.

Typically, it takes two dental appointments. The first appointment involves preparing the tooth and taking impressions, while the second appointment involves placing the crown after it’s fabricated in a dental lab.

Is getting a dental crown painful?

How do I care for my dental crown?

Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. Avoid excessive force or grinding your teeth.

Can dental crowns be replaced if needed?

Are there any risks or complications associated with dental crowns?

Complications are rare, but they can include sensitivity or allergic reactions to materials.

Are there age restrictions for getting a dental crown?

No, dental crowns can be placed at any age.

Can I get a dental crown if I grind my teeth?

Yes, but our dentist may recommend additional measures to protect the crown.

Do dental crowns stain?

My fear of dentists is gone, thanks the team at Essential Dental Care. So caring, so considerate, so professional. I had a hygienist service and two fillings. I have never had such wonderful experience sitting in a dentist chair. I was recommend this place by a friend, and I am forever grateful. There is a group of us now, who all go here :) Thank you all and you sure have me as your regular customer for years to come.

My husband and I would not go anywhere else, Dr Paul is the most experienced dentist that we have had and explains everything to you. My husband is in the middle of getting implants and he was a bit apprehensive at first but Paul was very patient and explained everything that is going happen and reassured him. It is a long process but will be worth the wait. Also the staff could not be more helpful and very friendly too. Would recommend this practice to anyone.💓

由於家母牙齒出問題,規勸良久才肯就醫,幾經波折,在愛丁堡找到這家可以全程以廣東話溝通的牙科診所,診所職員 Carman了解後,認為情況緊急,特意安排了快期,隔天便能就診。牙醫 Paul 診症細心,並教導了日常的護理方法及開药,回家後一兩天病情已告好轉,值得推薦。

Paul is kind and patient to explain the treatment.

First thing to say is that Paul does very high quality work. He pays attention to detail, spots trouble before it happens, and is very quick to find an appointment time if you do have pain, and sorts it out effectively every time. Secondly, he is very gentle; he’ll tell you when he’s about to numb you up, but to be honest, that’s about the last you’re aware of it. He checks with you that you’re ok, and is careful to make sure your mouth isn’t open wide any longer than it needs to be. Thirdly, he and Michelle run a very effective and friendly practice; they made every effort to keep open as much as possible during lockdown whilst giving every confidence that they were doing all they could to keep their patients safe. And they still do. I can’t commend them highly enough nor thank them warmly enough for all their care and attention.

Cannot fault the team at Essential dental. They are always seem to run on time and put me at ease throughout. Dr Au just gets on with it. Would recommend to anyone.

I have had an extremely positive experience at Essential Dental Care. While a bit pricey (as with any private dentist), Dr Paul has always been very patient and happy to answer any questions I've had about my treatment. I also have to say that this is the first dental practice I asked about a partial denture who did not immediately try to upsell me to a dental implant. While I do need to eventually get the implant, it can be very costly and Dr Paul understood that I really just needed a cosmetic solution in the interim. Highly recommended.
