If any of your teeth have been damaged or weakened, our Sydney CBD dentists may recommend fitting a crown over the tooth's existing structure to protect it and restore the look and function of your smile.
Crowns are custom made by our dentists to be a perfect fit and a match for your natural tooth colour. We offer traditional crowns as well as same-day CEREC crowns that can sometimes be designed, manufactured and fitted in a single visit.
To find out more about crowns or discuss other tooth restoration options, contact Sydney Dental Surgeons to make an appointment at a time that suits you. Call (02) 9221 1530 or book online.
Our dentists may recommend a crown to repair or strengthen a tooth for many different reasons. Crowns may also be part of a larger dental treatment, or they can be chosen for aesthetic reasons if you want to change the appearance of a tooth.
If we think you could benefit from a dental crown, we'll explain what you need to know about the procedure, its costs and any associated risks so you can make an informed decision about your oral health.
Crowns can be chosen in a range of materials that each have their pros and cons, depending on your preferences and price range. These include:
If you choose to have a dental crown at our Sydney clinic, this is usually completed in two or more visits and involves the following steps:
It can take from a few days to a week for your crown to arrive back at our dental clinic. If you're having a CEREC same-day dental crown, we can design and manufacture your crown in our clinic using 3D imaging software and an on-site milling machine, often during a single visit.
Once your crown has been fitted, it can last for many years with proper care. It's important to keep brushing and flossing the tooth under the crown as normal, as decay or gum disease could cause the crown to come loose. You should also keep up with your regular dental check-ups.
Over time, crowns may become damaged, stained or discoloured. If you want to replace a crown or filling, we can remove the old restoration and fit a new custom crown in the material of your choice, with minimal alteration to the tooth.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. We'll make sure you know about any possible side-effects or complications before you agree to have a crown fitted. This includes the risk of the tooth becoming more sensitive after the enamel is reduced, but this usually goes away within a few days and can be managed by taking pain relief medication.
If your crown comes loose or gets damaged, or you notice other unexpected problems after your treatment, contact our Sydney dental clinic to make an emergency appointment.
Our dental crown price in Sydney is based on the type and size of your crown you choose. We'll give you a quote for dental crown cost or crown replacement price during your consultation.
