How does a dental crown work?

A dental crown is a protective cap that fits over a damaged, weakened or decayed tooth, strengthening it and shielding it from further damage. 

Common Reasons for a Dental Crown

  • Structurally weakened due to a root canal treatment, extensive decay or a large filling
  • Cracked, chipped or fractured
  • Discoloured and needs to be covered

We use all-ceramic E-MAX crowns in our Mirrabooka dental practice and in our other practice locations in Dianella, Nolamarra and Balcatta, to provide the best outcomes to patients. E-MAX crowns have a flawless appearance, blending in perfectly with the patient’s smile. And they are strong and durable. Due to their strength, they aren’t very susceptible to cracks or fractures, and they often last longer than other types of crowns.

What’s the First Step?

The first step toward getting a dental crown is a thorough exam. After evaluating your dental needs, we may recommend a crown to cover a tooth. If that’s the case, we will customise the crown to your tooth and to blend in with your smile. The dental crown process usually takes at least 2-3 visits to complete.
