Best dentist experience!
I am usually very anxious when going to the dentist but doctor Ioana made me feel at ease and comfortable at all times. She takes time explaining every procedure and makes sure it is all painless. All staff are kind and professional! I highly recommend this practice.
Dental Crowns in Camden and London
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the weakened tooth to cover and protect it. It helps in holding together and supporting the remaining tooth structure from any further damage. It is used to restore chipped, fractured or damaged tooth to its original size and shape whilst ensuring it matches the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns are highly durable and are usually made of metal like gold, porcelain or a combination of both metal and porcelain materials. Ceramic crowns or porcelain crowns can also be matched to the colour of your natural teeth to improve the overall teeth appearance.
Reasons for having Dental Crowns:
- To replace or cover a large filling
- Protect & restore a fractured or broken tooth
- To cover a dental implant
- To cosmetically enhance a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
- To cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
- To replace existing crowns
- Repair teeth in cases of trauma
- Realign your bite
Dental Crowns Procedure
Crown preparation usually requires two visits.
First Appointment: Examining and preparing the tooth
At your first visit, the dentist will clean the tooth to remove any decay or broken bits in the area. Your tooth will be prepared and shaped to be able to receive the crown. The dentist will then take an impression of your teeth which will then be used to create a temporary crown. The temporary crown is cemented to the tooth and checked for occlusion (patient’s bite) to see whether the teeth are meeting correctly. The dentist will also choose the correct shade of crown at this stage to match your natural teeth
Second Appointment: Placement of the permanent crown
At your second visit, the temporary crown is removed and the tooth is cleaned. Your new custom-made crown is carefully checked then cemented onto the prepared tooth. The dentist will then closely observe that the fit is correct as well as the bite. Upon completion, you will be given post-care instructions on maintenance that you must carefully follow.

We can place a tooth coloured crown which will match the colour of the surrounding teeth so that it doesn’t stand out.
Dental Crowns usually require two visits to the dental clinic.
In the first appointment, the dentist will prepare your tooth and take an impression or digital scan of the tooth and place a temporary crown.
In the second appointment, the temporary crown is taken out and the dentist will now place the final crown.
