Dental Crowns

Tooth Crowns

For the highest quality, most durable custom made dental crowns on the Gold Coast, look no further than Surfers Paradise Dental Centre (SPDC).

Our dentists at SPDC are the experts in fitting a range of different protective crowns for teeth. With their meticulous workmanship and precision fittings, they provide dental crowns that not only function well, but look good too.

A dental crown, sometimes referred to as 'tooth crowns' or 'caps', is like a helmet that fits snugly over and around a person's natural tooth to protect and reinforce the structure of that tooth (see illustration below)

Dental crowns are used to prevent fracture or breakage, and possible tooth loss, for teeth which have:

- Large or multiple fillings
- Cracks
- Root Canal Therapy

For teeth which have previously undergone root canal therapy, dental crowns can also help seal the tooth to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth and re-infecting the root canals.

Crowns for Teeth

At Surfers Paradise Dental Centre, our skilled team of dentists work to precision to fit crowns which are made from a variety of different materials. The type of material used depends on your specific needs and those of your teeth.

The different types of dental crowns that are available include:

  1. Porcelain (fused to metal) Crowns - This is a very sturdy type of crown which is frequently recommended for back teeth, where the added strength is needed most when chewing.
  2. Zirconia Crowns (fused with porcelain) - They appear more natural than a 'porcelain fused to metal' dental crown. And while they are strong, they're not quite as strong as a metal crown.
  3. Ceramic Crowns - These are the best looking type of crown. For this reason, they're reserved for the front teeth, where appearance is paramount but not as much strength is required when chewing.
  4. Gold Crowns - A gold crown is the longest lasting type of crown available. But as its name suggests, it is gold in appearance.

SPDC dentists draw on the finest workmanship when fitting all dental crowns. We're the experts when it comes to crowns for teeth, and we're here to help you choose the one that's best for you based on your personal needs.
