Crowns in Melbourne CBD

A crown (also called a cap) is a covering placed over a tooth to protect it–keeping it healthy and strong for years to come. A crown is designed to protect weak, worn or cracked teeth and is used when teeth have been heavily filled, ground or eroded. A crown is also commonly used after a root canal. At Collins Dental Image, our dentists have decades of experience creating beautiful, long-lasting dental restorations.

What Are the Benefits?

If teeth are worn or misshapen, or heavily filled, crowns may be a better solution than veneers. Cosmetically, they can enhance a smile and create a more youthful appearance. Functionally, crowns can help prevent recurring issues with chipped or broken teeth and may help you keep a tooth that would otherwise be lost.

What to Expect

Crowns are one of the many tools we have to help you achieve a long-lasting, stunning smile. First, we’ll start with an examination to determine the best course of action for your situation, and speak with you about the best options for your smile. The process takes two visits: one to prepare the tooth or teeth and take a mould or digital impression, and the second to place the crown.

Why Choose Collins Dental Image?

Crowns require precision to create a bespoke restoration that will last. You can trust our experienced practitioners to provide a crown that is natural-looking and matches the colour of your teeth. We also guarantee a precise fit which is essential to keep your gums healthy around the tooth. When your treatment is finished, you will feel confident knowing your smile is healthy, functional and beautiful.


What are crowns made of?

Typically, they are made of porcelain and are designed to match the colour of your teeth. Gold may sometimes be used.

How long do they last?

Crowns are the strongest dental restoration available and average crowns last between 10 and 12 years, however, at Collins Street Dental we routinely see them lasting over 20 years with proper preventative maintenance.

Can I have multiple crowns done simultaneously?

Yes, if you need more than one crown in the same region of the mouth, we can generally do them at the same time.
