Crowns

Crowns are sometimes referred to as caps. They are laboratory prepared restorations that fit over specially prepared teeth.

Crowns are placed on teeth that require extra protection. This may be because of the tooth being chipped, the tooth having a very large filling or following root canal treatment where a crown protects what is left of the remaining tooth.

Crowns can also help improve the appearance of a tooth by changing the shape and colour of the tooth.

At Hollyhedge Dental our highly skilled technicians use the latest materials to handcraft your crown specific to your mouth.


‘I am so pleased with the results of my recent Dental ‘Makeover’.  My overall experience with Somit and the Hollyhedge Team has been fantastic.  I had crowns on my front teeth for 15 years, which I wasn’t happy with, and my gums often looked grey and inflamed.  Once these old crowns broke I visited Somit at Hollyhedge Dental.  He spent a huge amount of time listening to my concerns about my teeth and their appearance and together we made the right decisions for me.  I now have metal free crowns which was very important to me, and have taken Somit’s advice to lighten my teeth which has only highlighted how much healthier my teeth and gums now look.  I look back at old photos now and only wish I had met the team at Hollyhedge sooner!  Thank You!’
