Dental Crowns Canberra


Restore the look and shape of your smile with a dental crown from Woden Dental Centre in Canberra.

A dental crown is a custom-made covering that is placed over the tooth for either cosmetic or protective purposes. As well as improve the look, size and shape of a tooth, it can also help make it stronger. They are commonly used for cavities that are too large to fill, for improving cracked or worn teeth, to conceal badly-shaped or discoloured teeth, or after having root canal treatment.

There are five types of material that can be used when creating a dental crown, including:

  • Porcelain Fused to Metal: Stronger than regular porcelain and mainly used for fixing front teeth, as ceramic blends well with the tooth’s natural colour
  • Base Metal Alloy: Non-noble metal that’s resistant to corrosion and requires less tooth removal
  • Gold Alloy: Uses a mix of metals, including gold and copper. Is incredibly durable and will not fracture the tooth itself.
  • Full Gold: Made of gold or a cast metal, which is difficult to chip or damage
  • Full Porcelain: Among the most popular choice of material. Can match the appearance of a natural tooth better than any other crown.

Before placing a crown, your doctor will assess whether your teeth are strong enough to support one – and may begin filing teeth down in preparation. They will then make an impression of your teeth and send it away to a dental lab. In the meantime, you will wear a temporary crown while waiting for the permanent one to be made.

The price of a dental crown depends on manufacturing costs, shipping costs and materials used. For example, a ceramic crown can cost up to $2040, while a porcelain crown can total around $2002.

Crowns can last for up to 15 years, depending on how well you maintain oral hygiene and condition of teeth prior to treatment.
