York Dental Practice



Dental crowns are an effective solution for restoring damaged or weakened teeth that cannot be fixed with a filling. They are custom-made to fit over the affected tooth, providing both protection and strength. Once fixed in place, a crown should look, feel, and function just like any other tooth, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth.
Crowns can also enhance the appearance of chipped or stained teeth, restoring them to their usual shape and colour, thus improving your overall smile.
With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last for years, preserving your smile and oral health. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential to ensure the longevity of your crown.
Your dentist will advise you on how long you can expect your crown to last and offer tips on maintaining it, such as avoiding hard foods that could damage the crown.
Whether for functional restoration or cosmetic improvement, dental crowns play a crucial role in comprehensive dental care, providing a reliable solution to various dental issues.

Options with Crowns and Bridges

There are three types of crowns that can be placed:

  1. All gold crowns which are the strongest but are the least aesthetic and best used on back teeth.
  2. Porcelain bonded to metal crowns that are aesthetic, but very opaque looking and may give a black gum line over a period of time.
  3. All porcelain crowns

● Emax Crowns are Long lasting, highly aesthetic, more and more popular. Emax crowns possess an ideal blend of translucency and lifelike appearance, that makes them suitable for restoration of front teeth and some back teeth with favourable bite.

● Zirconium is becoming one of the most chosen materials for full porcelain dental crowns. These crowns are so strong that they will not corrode and there will not be any black gum line that usually appears when porcelain fused metal crowns are used. There are many forms of Zirconium crowns and some of them could be placed in front of the mouth.
