Types of Dental Crowns

When it comes to dental crowns, Mulgrave Dental Group offers a range of options to suit your specific needs. Let's explore the different types of dental crowns and their unique characteristics:

  1. Porcelain & Ceramic Crowns: These crowns are known for their excellent color-matching capabilities, making them a popular choice for front teeth. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a highly aesthetic result. Additionally, porcelain and ceramic crowns are ideal for individuals with metal allergies. However, it's important to note that they may not be as durable as metal crowns and can wear down over time.
  2. Metal Crowns: Metal crowns, including gold and other alloys, are renowned for their exceptional durability and strength. They require minimal removal of the tooth structure and can withstand significant biting forces. The main consideration with metal crowns is their metallic color, which may not be desired for visible teeth.
  3. Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns: These crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain. They offer a natural-looking appearance while providing enhanced durability. It's important to note that the porcelain portion of these crowns may chip or break off over time. Additionally, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can cause more wear on opposing teeth.
  4. Composite Resin Crowns: Composite resin crowns are a more cost-effective option. While they are less expensive, it's important to consider that they may wear down over time and are more prone to fractures compared to other types of crowns.

Reasons for Dental Crowns

At Mulgrave Dental Group, we understand that there are several reasons why individuals may require dental crowns to restore and protect their teeth. Here are some common situations where dental crowns are recommended:

  1. Tooth Decay: When a tooth has extensive decay that cannot be effectively treated with a dental filling, a dental crown may be necessary. The crown covers the tooth entirely, providing strength and protection while restoring its natural shape and function.
  2. Fractured or Cracked Teeth: Teeth that are fractured or cracked due to trauma or biting forces can benefit from dental crowns. The crown acts as a protective cap, holding the tooth together and preventing further damage. It helps to restore strength and stability, allowing you to chew and speak with confidence.
  3. Root Canal Treatment: After undergoing root canal therapy, a tooth can become weak and vulnerable to fracture. A dental crown is often recommended to strengthen and protect the treated tooth, ensuring its long-term functionality and preventing reinfection.
  4. Large Fillings: Teeth with large fillings that compromise their structural integrity may require dental crowns to provide additional support and prevent further damage. The crown covers the tooth, reinforcing its strength and protecting it from potential fractures.
  5. Cosmetic Enhancement: Dental crowns are also used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of teeth. They can effectively address issues such as severe discolouration, misshapen or poorly aligned teeth, and gaps between teeth. With dental crowns, you can achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile transformation.

Natural Looking Outcomes

Imagine having a strong, durable, and natural-looking solution for your damaged teeth. With our high-quality dental crowns at Mulgrave Dental Group, you can enjoy restored tooth strength, improved chewing ability, and enhanced aesthetics.

Our skilled dentists use the latest techniques and materials to create custom crowns that match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. Regain your confidence and enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile. 


Benefits of Dental Crowns

At Mulgrave Dental Group, dental crowns offer a multitude of benefits that go beyond restoring the functionality of your teeth. Here are some key advantages of dental crowns:

  1. Enhanced Protection: Dental crowns provide a strong and durable protective layer for damaged or weakened teeth. They act as a shield, covering the entire visible portion of the tooth and safeguarding it against further damage, such as decay, fractures, or wear. By encapsulating the tooth, crowns help preserve its structural integrity and longevity.
  2. Restored Functionality: Dental crowns are meticulously designed to restore the proper function of your teeth. Whether it's chewing, biting, or speaking, crowns ensure that you can perform these essential tasks with confidence and ease. With a crown, you can enjoy your favorite foods, speak clearly, and maintain optimal oral function.
  3. Aesthetically Pleasing Results: Dental crowns not only restore functionality but also improve the appearance of your smile. Crafted from high-quality materials, such as porcelain or ceramic, crowns closely mimic the color, shape, and translucency of natural teeth. This means that your dental crown will seamlessly blend in with your existing teeth, providing a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result.
  4. Long-lasting Solution: When properly cared for, dental crowns can last for many years, offering a long-term solution for tooth restoration. The durable materials used in crowns, combined with advanced techniques and quality craftsmanship, ensure their longevity and resilience. This means that you can enjoy the benefits of your dental crown for an extended period, providing an excellent return on your investment.
  5. Confidence & Self-Esteem: With a beautifully restored smile, dental crowns can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem. They can help you feel more comfortable and secure in social and professional settings, allowing you to freely express yourself without any hesitation or embarrassment.

Our Dental Crowns Procedure

At Mulgrave Dental Group, we are committed to providing you with high-quality dental crown treatments. Our experienced team follows a meticulous process to ensure optimal results and patient satisfaction. Here's an overview of the typical dental crown procedure:

  1. Consultation & Examination: Your dental journey begins with a comprehensive consultation and examination. Our skilled dentist will discuss your concerns, evaluate your oral health, and determine if a dental crown is the right solution for you. X-rays or other diagnostic imaging may be taken to assess the condition of the affected tooth and surrounding structures.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on the examination results, our dentist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The plan will outline the recommended type of dental crown, material options, and any additional procedures that may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
  3. Tooth Preparation: Before placing a dental crown, the affected tooth needs to be prepared. Our dentist will carefully remove a small portion of the tooth's outer layer, known as enamel, to create space for the crown. This ensures a proper fit and alignment of the final restoration.
  4. Impressions: Once the tooth is prepared, our dentist will take precise impressions of your teeth. These impressions serve as a mold that will be used by our skilled dental laboratory technicians to fabricate a custom-made crown. The impressions capture the unique contours of your teeth, ensuring a crown that fits seamlessly and comfortably.
  5. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being crafted in the dental laboratory, a temporary crown will be placed over the prepared tooth. This temporary crown protects the tooth and maintains its appearance and function until the final restoration is ready.
  6. Crown Placement: Once your custom-made crown is completed, you will return to our dental office for the final placement. Our dentist will carefully remove the temporary crown and ensure that the permanent crown fits precisely. Any necessary adjustments will be made to achieve proper alignment, bite, and aesthetics. The crown will then be permanently cemented or bonded into place.

Crowns In One-Visit

At Mulgrave Dental Group, we are always looking for ways to streamline our services to cater to the diverse needs of our patients. Recognizing that time is a valuable commodity for many, we are proud to introduce CEREC crowns in Melbourne, Australia - an innovative solution that revolutionizes the traditional dental crown procedure. 

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology transforms the traditional two-visit crown process into a single-appointment procedure, providing our patients with an unparalleled blend of efficiency and quality. We understand that our patients lead busy lives, and we are committed to providing dental care that respects their time without compromising on the results. 

  • The innovative CEREC system combines advanced 3D imaging with state-of-the-art milling technology. After preparing your tooth for the crown, we use the CEREC system to take precise digital impressions. These impressions are then used to design a custom, high-quality ceramic crown, matching the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  • The beauty of CEREC lies not only in its precision but also in its speed. The design is sent to an on-site milling machine, which carves out your bespoke crown from a high-quality ceramic block in a matter of minutes. The result is a durable, aesthetically pleasing crown that is ready to be placed within the same appointment.
  • By eliminating the need for a temporary crown and a second appointment for the fitting of a permanent crown, the CEREC system saves our patients both time and inconvenience. Plus, with the ability to adjust and fit the crown immediately, we can ensure the end result is comfortable and natural-feeling, allowing our patients to leave the practice with a restored smile in a single visit.
  • CEREC crowns are not just about efficiency; they are about offering a superior dental solution. The ceramic material used in CEREC crowns is biocompatible and closely matches the natural colour of your teeth, delivering a result that blends seamlessly with your smile. These crowns are not only durable but also resistant to staining, ensuring your smile stays brighter for longer.

Dental Crowns FAQs

Dental crowns can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. On average, they can last between 10 to 15 years or even longer. However, the lifespan of a crown can vary depending on factors such as oral hygiene practices, biting forces, dental hygiene habits, and material used for the crown.

Dental crowns are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, ensuring a natural appearance. As for comfort, modern dental crown materials and techniques provide a comfortable fit and feel in the mouth.

The dental crown placement procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the tooth and surrounding area. This ensures that you experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. Our experienced dental professionals prioritize your comfort and strive to make the process as painless as possible.

Caring for a dental crown is similar to caring for your natural teeth. It involves maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing and flossing. It's important to avoid chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to the crown. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also essential to ensure the longevity of your dental crown.

Dental insurance coverage for dental crowns can vary depending on your specific insurance plan. Some plans may provide coverage for a portion of the cost, while others may have limitations or exclusions. Our knowledgeable team will work closely with you to understand your insurance benefits and help you maximize your coverage for dental crowns.

Dental crowns and fillings serve different purposes. A dental filling is used to restore a small portion of a tooth affected by decay or damage, while a dental crown covers the entire visible portion of a tooth. Dental crowns are typically recommended for teeth that are severely damaged, cracked, or weakened, or for teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.

Dental crowns are resistant to teeth whitening treatments. The colour of a dental crown is determined during the fabrication process, and once placed, it cannot be whitened. If you are considering teeth whitening, it is best to whiten your natural teeth before getting a dental crown. This allows your dentist to match the crown to the desired shade of your whitened teeth.

While dental crowns are designed to be durable and long-lasting, there is a slight possibility of a crown coming off in rare cases. This can happen due to factors such as tooth decay, trauma, or improper fit. If your dental crown becomes loose or comes off, it's important to contact your dentist immediately for evaluation and possible re-cementation.

Yes, it is possible to replace an old dental crown if it is worn, damaged, or no longer aesthetically pleasing. Your dentist will assess the condition of the existing crown and recommend the most appropriate course of action. Replacement crowns can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing an improved and updated appearance.

In some cases, dental crowns may not be the most suitable option. Depending on the specific situation, alternative treatments such as dental veneers, dental bonding, or inlays/onlays may be recommended. Your dentist will evaluate your unique circumstances and discuss the available options to help you make an informed decision.
