Tailored restorative solutions

With a wide range of products available for capping teeth, you’re sure to find a solution that works for you. Our treatments consist of inlays, onlays and crowns, as well as dental fillings for when the tooth needs to be replaced.

 Inlays and onlays cover cavities and small chips, while our dental crowns, which include porcelain crowns and gold tooth crowns, are reserved for more serious damage. Whatever treatment is required, we’ll make sure your restorations fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth for a natural-looking smile.

A customer-centric approach

Besides being medically-qualified experts in their respective fields, our dentists are also friendly people who will make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. We’ll take time to sit with you, discuss your concerns, map your dental goals and explain the options available. 

Following an initial consultation, we’ll create a tailored treatment plan to guide you through the entire process and ensure the best results. We’re dedicated to providing not only the highest standards of dental treatment, but the finest quality of service too.

Questions about porcelain crowns and onlays

There are several types of dental crowns available to patients, varying in terms of cost, durability and appearance. Some of the most common types include:

  • Gold tooth crown: made from a combination of copper and other metals, these crowns are strong and durable but more noticeable than tooth-coloured crowns.
  • Porcelain crown: the industry standard, porcelain crowns can be customised to match the surrounding teeth and provide a natural look.
  • Zirconia crown: made from zirconium, these crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetic qualities of porcelain crowns.

Fitting a crown is a very safe dental procedure, with an anaesthetic typically administered to the patient to numb the pain. There are some complications linked to allergic reactions and tooth infections, and patients should expect some mild sensitivity in the days after the procedure. Side effects can be safely managed by following your aftercare guide.

Because porcelain crowns are tooth-coloured and perfectly fit cracks in the teeth, they both feel and look like normal teeth. You may notice some mild sensitivity in the days after the crown tooth has been fitted, but this soon subsides. Before long, you won’t even notice the crown is there.
