Dental Crowns in Dubbo

A crown is a protective cover that goes over weak or damaged teeth. Unlike fillings inside of teeth, a crown covers the heavily broken tooth to prevent it from breaking down further.

You may need a crown if you have a large cavity, need to replace an old, large filling or after root canal treatment. Crowns also work well for aesthetic purposes when dental veneers are inappropriate, as we can control the precise colour and shape of the restoration.

Is it Painful?

We use local anaesthesia to keep you comfortable. You should feel about the same as getting a dental filling. There will be a bit of pressure, but you shouldn’t feel much more than that. Your tooth will be numb for a few hours afterwards. Since we’ll place a temporary crown first, it’s important to be gentle while cleaning around it, and not eat anything too hard or sticky.

What to Expect

Getting a dental crown (sometimes called a ‘cap’) usually requires two appointments. During the first visit, we will numb and prep your tooth, then take an impression. About two weeks later, the permanent crown is ready to bond in place.

Most of our dental crowns are designed from porcelain or ceramic, which is both strong and attractive. In some situations, gold alloys are also used, particularly because they stand up to heavy biting pressure in back teeth.

Why not a Filling?

Damaged teeth tend to continue breaking down over time. Especially the more you chew with them. A crown helps distribute biting pressure across the entire restoration, strengthening the tooth underneath it and preventing additional fractures. Getting a crown could mean the difference in keeping your tooth or needing it removed.
