Improve Your Tooth's Appearance And Function With Dental Crowns
You may be experiencing some dental problems that you’re unsure how to address.
Dental problems can be incredibly frustrating and embarrassing. It’s hard to know what to do when dealing with cracks in teeth, a missing tooth, or decay.
Maylands Dental Centre offers dental crowns as a solution to your dental problems. A dental crown is a cap commonly used to replace a missing tooth, cover a badly broken tooth, a large filling, a decayed tooth, or a fractured tooth to restore its correct shape and size. In addition, this dental restoration protects and strengthens existing tooth structures. Our team of dental professionals will work with you to find the best solution for your needs and restore your natural smile. We use the latest technology and materials to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Call us at 08 9370 5464 or book an appointment online.

Frequently Asked Questions
A conventional crown procedure usually involves two dental appointments:
First Visit: During your first visit to the dentist, which could take about an hour and a half, your tooth will be examined and prepared. A thin enamel layer will be removed from your tooth to prepare it to receive the dental crown. We will also take x-rays and moulds of the prepared tooth. We’ll send your impression to a dental lab to make a dental crown. Depending on how long the crown fabrication takes, we may supply you with a temporary crown while you wait.
Second Visit: Once the custom crown is ready, you’ll need to return to our dental clinic for the crown fitting. This second visit will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Your dentist will remove your temporary crown and replace it with your new one. Following the procedure, you will receive instructions on good oral hygiene and be reminded to schedule regular dental check-ups with your dentist.
While you wait for your crown placement schedule, you will most likely need a temporary crown. A temporary crown will protect your prepared tooth while allowing you to continue eating normally.
A permanent crown is created in a dental laboratory by a dental technician who follows a very specific prescription from your dentist, which takes into account many factors. Among these factors are your underlying tooth colour, the original shape and shade of the tooth, the placement of your neighbouring teeth, and your bite. It may take up to two weeks to complete the process.
Dental crowns require no special maintenance. Nevertheless, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene to keep the tooth free of decay or gum disease. As part of good oral hygiene practices, brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day are highly recommended, particularly in the crown area where the gum meets the tooth.
Eating hard foods should be avoided if possible. Chewing on ice or hard foods can crack a porcelain crown. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also advised to prevent gum disease.
Dental crowns can vary in price depending on the material used and which tooth they cover. WA residents can expect to pay up to $1,700 for porcelain fused to metal crown and $1,800 for a full ceramic crown. Crowns made of zirconia or gold will usually cost more.
