Dental Crowns in Dorking, Surrey

General Dentistry » Crowns

These are like a jacket that fits over a prepared tooth. A 3/4 crown is less destructive to the tooth. For all veneers and crowns, Neggin, Dipesh and Yohan is able to either use a traditionally fashioned lab prepared restoration or he is able to make crowns or veneers in-house in one single visit using his CEREC machine. Advantages of using the CEREC include:

  • All work can be done in a single visit, meaning only one anaesthetic injection
  • No impressions, which some people find uncomfortable.
  • No waiting 2 weeks for lab work, meaning a better crown fit is achieved
  • No metal, thus removing the unsightly black mark often seen at the top of traditional crowns

In summary, the CEREC enables Neggin, Dipesh and Yohan to carry out your work to the highest standard, quickly and as painlessly as possible. You don’t even spend very long in the dental chair as most of the time needed is for Neggin, Dipesh and Yohan to work on the CEREC computer system designing your new smile. You can relax downstairs in our comfortable waiting room with magazines and a cup of tea.

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:

  • you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the
    appearance of the tooth
  • you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
  • it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
