When would I need a crown?

If you have badly broken teeth or weakening caused by decay, large fillings or worn down teeth, dental crowns are the ideal solution to restore your teeth in a natural way. Dental crowns are commonly referred to to as a “Cap”, because the crown protects the damaged tooth from further damage. A dental crown can recreate the original shape of your tooth as a

  • natural tooth whilst improving its strength.
  • To strengthen a broken tooth that is decayed or cracked.
  • If you have a tooth which is at risk of cracking.
  • To improve the appearance of teeth that are a result of discoloured fillings.
  • If you have a root filling, having a dental crown on the tooth will give it protection.
  • To improve the cleanliness of a tooth.

The Dental Crown Procedure


Step 1

The dentist will give you a local anaesthetic prior to the procedure. The dentist will then start by preparing your teeth on either side of the gap as trimming is needed to accommodate the crown.


The dentist will then take an impression of your teeth using special dental silicone to make the mould. This mould will be sent to a dental laboratory to prepare the dental bridge and crowns. You will receive a temporary dental bridge until the permanent dental bridge is ready.


The dentist will ensure that the natural colour of your teeth match the dental bridge. When the permanent dental bridge is ready, the temporary bridge will be removed and the bridge fitted.

What are they made from?

Dental Crowns can be made from a wide range of materials and we will advise on the best choice for your needs.

Porcelain bonded to metal
This has the advantage of strength from the metal lining and good appearance from the ceramic coating.

All Ceramic
Modern all ceramic materials are now available which give a beautiful appearance whilst still being very strong and durable.

Gold Alloys
Gold can be used where strength is the main consideration.

Say About Us

I used to suffer anxiety when visiting the dentist due to a bad experience years ago, this resulted in me not going for years! Abbey dental have changed all that for me, I no longer stress or worry about going and their treatment is second to none. They have given me the confidence again and have not judged me or looked down at me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
As soon as you walk in to Abbey Dental Practice you are welcomed with a friendly face. Rob and his team are friendly, professional, but above all they put you at ease. I have never had a fear of the dentist, but Abbey Dental Practice is the most customer friendly dentist I have ever been registered with. Would highly recommend without hesitation.
As someone who has been afraid of going to the dentist for many years, I was fortunate to go to Abbey Dental Practice. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly and Robert Handley is so calming and reassuring, I finally lost the fear. After some years due to gum recession I was advised implants were an option. After some thought I decided to go ahead and it was the best decision I could have made as I have no trouble eating at all.
I travelled over two hours for my appointment this morning, normally takes an hour, got stuck in heavy traffic. My family and friends ask me why haven't I changed dentist since moving to North Wales. My answer is simple......."I trust them"
