What It Is

Most of our crowns are made of porcelain, which can be matched to your adjacent teeth. Porcelain and other ceramics are both durable and natural looking.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A crown or ‘cap’ is a protective restoration that fits over your tooth similar to a thimble on your finger. The crown covers the tooth up to the gum lines, protecting it from every direction. Since it encases the entire tooth, crowns helps hold weaker structures together, safeguarding them against further breakage.

What is the process like?

Getting a crown requires two phases of treatment: the prep and the final placement. During your initial visit, we’ll numb the tooth and gently remove the damaged portions. Next, the tooth is prepped to allow a crown room to slip over it, then we take an impression and send it to our lab.

You’ll wear a temporary crown while the permanent one is being designed. About two weeks later, you’ll return to have Dr Chung remove the temporary and affix the permanent one into place.

Either end of a dental bridge is essentially a functional crown. The restoration fits over the prepped tooth or implant, depending on the circumstances. Like a crown procedure, getting a dental bridge typically requires two appointments about two weeks apart. The first visit will involve prepping your teeth and taking an impression. We will send the moulds to our lab, where your permanent bridge is handcrafted to our specifications. Most are made from durable ceramics, which blend in nicely with your surrounding teeth.

Do I Need A Crown And/Or Bridge?

Bridges provide a fixed, secure restoration for missing teeth. There are no removable parts. The majority of dental bridges are supported by teeth, as long as they are healthy. But if you have more than 2-3 missing teeth, you can bypass the need for a partial by having your bridge anchored onto a pair of dental implants.

Dr Mark Chung (Dentist) usually recommends crowns when:

- Over 60% a tooth has an older filling that is breaking apart
- You’ve recently had root canal treatment
- There is severe wear or enamel erosion
- A veneer is not appropriate
- You have aggressive tooth decay
- Dental implants replace individually missing teeth

How To Take Care Of Your Dental Crown & Bridges?

For the first day or two after your crown placement, avoid biting into anything too hard or chewy. Although the cement is mostly set, we want to be sure that the bond is fully cured before you get back to your normal diet.

We’ll check the fit of your crown at the time it’s placed, but if you start to notice any areas that feel high or hit before the rest of your teeth, let Dr Chung know. We can easily adjust it so that the bite feels completely even.

Be sure to thoroughly brush and floss around your crown daily, as the margins can accumulate buildup. Gentle flossing will not dislodge your cap; be sure to never force the floss out but slide it through your teeth if it ever feels stuck.

Do you tend to clench your teeth? Ask about getting fitted with a night guard to prevent any damage to your new restoration.

Book a scale and clean every six months to have your crown evaluated.

About Dental Crowns & Bridges

CAPABLE OF PROVIDING YOU A NEW SMILE

For front teeth or parts of your smile that are more noticeable, we generally opt for a cosmetic, yet durable ceramic design. Porcelain crowns can be matched to your adjacent teeth so that they’re less noticeable and look as natural as possible. Anterior teeth require more cosmetic considerations, so the process is a bit more detailed. It’s usually easier to make several crowns that match each other than it is to restore one tooth to look like all of thrones around it. 

 

When we need to restore a back tooth that you bite on more (especially one that’s less visible) Dr Chung will often recommend making your crown out of gold. Since gold is very strong and pliable, it holds up better to heavy wear without the risk of anything chipping off.

Do I Qualify?

For Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Ignoring a broken tooth can only lead to additional breakage — and painful emergencies. If your tooth is chipped, cracked, or decayed, contact Artarmon Fine Dental today to request an appointment.

Crowns provide full-coverage protection for weak, compromised teeth. Without a crown, severely damaged tooth structure cannot withstand everyday wear. A crown will preserve the intact structure while reinforcing it enough to continue eating normally.

You may need a crown if your tooth has:

  • A large cavity
  • Severe cracks or fractures
  • Recent root canal treatment
  • Extensive enamel wear
  • An older, large filling that needs to be replaced

What Our Clients Say

Testimonials

Our dear patients are the finest you can ask for. 

As an adult who’s spent 6 years scared of going to the dentist, my first visit at Artarmon Fine Dental and Dr Mark and Molly made every effort to ensure I was comfortable throughout my visit. I was given options and plans about how to progress with my treatments and included in the decision making every step of the way. You guys are amazing.

A very professional and humble dentist with a wealth of experience. Despite having a fully booked schedule and without booking, he skipped his meal break to carry out some urgent dental work for my teeth. Thank you very much Dr Chung & Molly.

I have had 3 of my teeth filled and one pulled out. Never felt a thing. Great service and environment. Vary caring and passionate. Prices are very reasonable compared to the services they provide. 5 out of 5 for me. Highly recommend them!

Kamibz Shojaee

Mark and Molly and the team work together really well. The friendly culture extends to making sure patients are comfortable. They take time to answer questions, and are very responsive to preferences in treatment.

Joel Penson

I had a great experience with Mark. I had a difficult tooth extraction at a different dentist and I was in pain even after good 10 days. I decided to visit Mark and he and his team did a fantastic job in making sure I was healing well and was feeling better. I cannot recommend Fine Dental and Mark enough. I’m very happy with my treatment so far and I look forward to returning for my implant later this year. Thank you Mark.
