What is a Dental Crown?
When is a crown needed?
Crowns are utilised for many different reasons. Some of these reasons include:
- A crown is used when a large filling needs to be replaced.
- It is needed to protect and support a weak tooth from breaking or repair a fractured tooth.
- A crown is used to cover a dental implant or discoloured tooth.
- It is needed during root canal treatment to cover up a tooth.
The procedure and treatment for a Crown
Our friendly dentist at Soho Dental will prepare your tooth for the crown by first giving you a local anaesthetic before the start of the treatment.
- Stage 1
Next, our dentist will clean the tooth to be capped and remove any signs of decay. Your tooth will then be reshaped using a small drill.
Once this is complete, dental wax will be used to take an impression of your tooth and the mould will be sent to the laboratory to be made.
During this time a temporary crown will be placed until the actual crown arrives.
- Stage 2
During your second dental visit, our dentist will remove the temporary crown. Then a special type of acid will be used on the surface of the tooth to give it a rough surface to form a strong bond with the crown.
Thereafter, our dentist will check if the crown fits or needs any adjustments. Once this is complete, our dentist will complete the procedure by fixing the crown in place using dental cement.

Why is a Dental Crown Needed?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” which is fixed on a tooth in order to cover the tooth and restore its shape and size, strength. Dental crowns help you to enhance your appearance by diminishing the imperfections within teeth.
After the crowns are cemented on their place, they can entirely enclose the entire visible portion of a tooth which lies above the gum line.

- Dental crown can help you to protect a weak tooth from breaking. It can also help you to hold together the broken pars of your cracked tooth
- In order to restore an previously broken tooth or a tooth which has been harshly worn down
