Emergency Care

If you need restorative treatment to rebuild your tooth, our bespoke crowns will leave you smiling.

Our dentists work closely with professional dental technicians to place and produce a unique, strong dental crown that suits your smile in every way.

Treatment Overview

Purpose: Tooth restoration after moderate to severe decay/tooth wear. Crowns also often make up dental bridges.
Lasts for: 10-15 years (on average)
Type of treatment: Restorative treatment to save your natural tooth.

What is a crown?

A crown covers a tooth affected by injury and decay. Crowns fall under the category of restorative treatment, reinstating strength and chewing function, and aesthetic value. We may also diagnose the need for a crown in cases where fillings have weakened.

Here at Circ Dental, we use advanced facilities, digital workflow, and materials with high aesthetic and functional value to create your crown.

What are the benefits of getting a crown?

A crown prevents dental problems like decay and dental trauma from destroying your tooth. Here at Circ Dental, it’s always our mission to produce the most functional and aesthetic tooth-like restorations possible for our patients, placing particular emphasis on durability and strength. Your crown will preserve your tooth for years to come and give you the peace of mind that your tooth is no longer compromised.

The crown process

Step 1: Consultation

During your consultation, your dentist will explain the process of getting a crown and why they believe it to be the viable course of action to strengthen and protect your tooth. We will always provide you with all the information you need to come to an independent decision about your dental care (we won’t ever push you to go ahead with any treatment, nor will we ever give you the hard sell).

If you are happy to go ahead with treatment, your dentist will take X-rays and carry out a thorough assessment of the tooth in question. This is to ensure it is strong enough to accommodate a crown and expose any additional weaknesses that could affect the application process.

Step 2: Tooth preparation

Your dentist will create an optimal surface for the crown by carefully taking away some of your tooth’s structure. Anaesthetic is used to numb the area around the tooth prior to this. A 3D scan is taken to provide the dental technician with an accurate outline when designing and creating your crown.

Step 3: Crown fitting

Your fitting appointment will be approximately 2 weeks after the preparation appointment. This is when your brand-new crown will be affixed to your tooth with a bonding adhesive. Your dentist will make sure your crown fits in with your bite when you close your teeth together and that you are happy with the result before affixing.


1. What type of materials are used to make crowns?

There are a variety of materials we can use when making crowns. The most common materials are zirconia, porcelain, E-max, and gold.
