Dental Crowns

Revive Your Smile with Dental Crowns: The Royal Treatment for Damaged Teeth.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are versatile restorations designed to cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth. Crafted from durable materials like porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, dental crowns are custom-made to fit over your existing tooth structure, providing strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.

Crowns are an excellent option for teeth that have suffered extensive decay, fractures, cracks, or wear over time. They can restore your tooth’s shape, size, and function while enhancing its appearance, giving you a revitalised and confident smile.

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

When are Dental Crowns Needed?

Dental crowns are recommended in various situations:

Extensive Decay

Extensive Decay

When a tooth has significant decay that cannot be adequately addressed with a filling, a dental crown can reinforce the tooth’s structure and prevent further damage.

Cracked Teeth

Fractured or Cracked Teeth

Teeth that have experienced fractures or cracks can be effectively protected and strengthened with dental crowns.

Root Canal

Root Canal-Treated Teeth

After a root canal procedure, a tooth may become weakened. Placing a dental crown over the treated tooth offers protection and support.

Cosmetic Enhancements

Cosmetic Enhancements

Dental crowns can also serve cosmetic purposes, improving the appearance of misshapen, discoloured, or poorly aligned teeth.


Large Filling Replacement

Dental crowns are used to replace large or failing fillings, providing more comprehensive coverage and stability to the tooth.

Dental Crown Options

At Bella Dental Penrith, we offer a variety of dental crown options to suit your unique needs and preferences:


Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are a popular choice due to their natural appearance, seamlessly blending with your surrounding teeth. They are an excellent option for front teeth where aesthetics are crucial.


Porcelain-fused-to-Metal (PFM) Crowns

PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the natural appearance of porcelain. They are ideal for posterior teeth, where additional strength and durability are required.


All-Ceramic Crowns

All-ceramic crowns are entirely metal-free, providing optimal aesthetics and biocompatibility. They are an excellent choice for those with metal allergies or sensitivities.


Gold Crowns

Gold crowns are renowned for their strength and durability. They are often recommended for molars, where strength is essential for chewing.

The Dental Crown Process

Getting a dental crown at Bella Dental Penrith is a seamless and comfortable process.


Comprehensive Evaluation

Our experienced dental team will thoroughly examine your oral health, assess the condition of your affected tooth, and determine if a dental crown is the best solution for you.


Tooth Preparation

To ensure a precise fit, a small portion of the tooth’s surface is gently reshaped to accommodate the crown. In some cases, additional restorative treatment, such as a filling or core buildup, may be necessary.



Highly accurate impressions of your prepared tooth are taken and sent to our trusted dental laboratory, where skilled technicians will custom-craft your dental crown to blend seamlessly with your smile.


Temporary Crown

While your permanent crown is being fabricated, we will provide a temporary crown to protect and maintain the aesthetics of your prepared tooth.


Final Placement

Once your custom dental crown is ready, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to bond the crown securely onto your tooth, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

Proper care and maintenance can extend the longevity of your dental crown.


Oral Hygiene

Maintain excellent oral hygiene practises, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups.


Avoid Hard Foods

Be cautious with hard or sticky foods that could potentially damage your crown.


Regular Check-ups

Schedule regular dental check-ups to monitor the condition of your dental crown and your overall oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dental crowns, and when are they necessary?

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made restorations designed to cover damaged, decayed, or weakened teeth. They provide strength and protection and improve the appearance of the tooth. Dental crowns are necessary when a tooth has extensive decay, fractures, or cracks, or after a root canal procedure to reinforce the tooth’s structure and prevent further damage.

How long do dental crowns last?

The lifespan of a dental crown depends on various factors, including the material used, oral hygiene practises, and the patient’s habits. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, high-quality dental crowns can last for many years and even decades.

Are dental crowns noticeable?

Modern dental crowns are designed to be natural-looking and blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. They are colour-matched to match your surrounding teeth, ensuring a discreet and aesthetic appearance. Porcelain and all-ceramic crowns, in particular, offer exceptional aesthetics as they mimic the translucency and sheen of natural teeth.

Can dental crowns be placed on any tooth?

While dental crowns are a versatile solution for many dental issues, they may not be suitable for all situations. A comprehensive evaluation by a qualified dentist is necessary to determine if a dental crown is the best treatment option. Severely compromised teeth, extensive decay, or significant misalignments may require alternative treatments. Your dentist will assess your specific case and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

Does getting a dental crown involve discomfort?

The process of getting a dental crown is usually well tolerated by patients. Before the procedure, a local anaesthetic is administered to numb the area and ensure a painless experience. Some patients may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but this typically subsides quickly.
