Do you have a broken, chipped, or cracked tooth?

If so, then you may be a candidate for a dental crown. Dental crowns are an ideal way to restore the strength, function, and appearance of your teeth.

So if you’re looking for quality dental crowns in Melbourne, then look no further than Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry.

Schedule a consultation today to see if you’re a candidate for a dental crown.


What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function.

Crowns are also used to strengthen teeth that are broken or have been worn down by grinding. They can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen, discolored, or slightly crooked. 

At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we use the latest technology and materials to create beautiful, natural-looking dental crowns. We will work with you to choose the right color, shape, and size for your smile.

Contact us today to learn more about how we might be able to help you.

How do dental crowns work?

This is a surgical or invasive procedure that carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from a qualified dentist. This Melbourne dentist understands the fears people might have about these sorts of treatments. However, the treatment is relatively tame and easy to undergo.

The first thing that needs to be done is to make sure the tooth is strong enough to support the dental crown. If not, a root canal treatment might be necessary. This will ensure that the tooth is free of infection and decay.

Once the tooth is prepared, an impression will be taken of the tooth. This impression will be used to create your custom dental crown.

While you wait for your permanent crown, a temporary one will be put in place. Once the permanent crown is ready, it will be cemented into place.

You’ll then be able to go about your life as usual! Just make sure to take care of your new dental crown and brush and floss as you normally would.

At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we use high-quality porcelain to create dental crowns that look and feel just like your natural teeth. With proper care, your crown will last for many years.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

There are many benefits of dental crowns, including:

  • Improving the appearance of your smile
  • Restoring the function of your teeth
  • Strengthening damaged or decayed teeth
  • Protecting weak or fragile teeth from further damage
  • Correcting misaligned teeth
If you are considering getting a dental crown, then schedule a consultation with us today. We will help you determine if a dental crown is the best option for you.

Types of Dental Crowns

1. Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your smile if needed. They are made to match the colour of your natural teeth, and they can be a good option for front teeth. The porcelain material is also very strong and durable, making it a good choice for those who want a long-lasting dental crown. In addition, porcelain crowns are very resistant to staining, so with proper maintenance you can be sure that your smile will stay look bright and beautiful for years to come.

2. Gold Crowns

Gold crowns are a type of dental restoration that is typically used for back teeth. The major benefits of gold crowns are durability and strength. Gold crowns also require less of your natural tooth structure than other types of dental Crowns, making them a good option for people who are concerned about preserving as much of their natural tooth structure as possible. In addition, gold crowns are less likely to chip or break than other types of dental crowns, making them a good choice for people who lead active lifestyles.

3. Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia is a strong, white material that looks very natural when used for teeth. In addition, zirconia is less likely to cause allergic reactions than other materials, making it a safe choice for patients with sensitive teeth. While zirconia crowns may cost slightly more than other types of crowns, many patients feel that the benefits are worth the extra expense.

4. Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are a great option for both children's primary teeth and adults' temporary restorations. They can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use and will help keep your child's smile looking its best. In addition, stainless steel crowns are less likely to cause allergies or other sensitivities, making them a safe choice for your family.

5. Resin Crowns

Made from a plastic material that is matched to the color of your natural teeth, they are virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth. Resin crowns are also very strong and durable, making them a great choice for people who are looking for a long-lasting solution to their tooth problems. In addition, resin crowns are very easy to care for and can be brushed and flossed just like your real teeth. 

6. Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) Crowns

PFM crowns are made from a metal core that is covered with porcelain. The metal core provides strength and durability, while the porcelain surface gives the crown a natural-looking appearance. PFM crowns are also less likely to discolor than other types of crowns, making them a good choice for people with tooth-colored fillings or bonding. 

Dental Crown Treatment Process

With our same-day porcelain crowns, you can get the dental treatment you need without having to wait weeks or even months for your new crown.

1. Study

The first step in getting a dental crown is to schedule a consultation with us. During your consultation, we will examine your mouth and take X-rays to determine if a dental crown is the best option for you.

2. Shape

If we determine that a dental crown is right for you, we will then prepare your tooth for the crown by removing any decay or damaged tooth structure. We will also shape the tooth to make sure that the crown will fit properly.

And don't worry, we will numb the area around your tooth with local anesthesia first to reduce any pain.

Then, we'll take a scan of your teeth so that we can create a custom-made dental crown that fits your mouth perfectly.

3. Smile

Once your dental crown is ready, we will place it over your shaped tooth with dental cement and make any necessary adjustments. 

After your dental crown procedure is complete, it is important to follow all of your post-operative instructions. This will help ensure that your dental crown lasts for many years to come.

Are dental crowns and porcelain crowns the same thing?
Yes, dental crowns and porcelain crowns are the same thing. A dental crown is a restoration that covers the entire surface of a tooth, and a porcelain crown is a type of dental crown that is made out of porcelain.
Are porcelain crowns good?
There is no simple answer to this question as it depends on each individual case. In general, porcelain crowns are a very good option for restoring the function and appearance of a damaged tooth.
How long do porcelain crowns last?
Porcelain crowns can last for many years, but it is important to keep in mind that they are not permanent and may eventually need to be replaced. With proper care and maintenance, your porcelain crowns should last for 14 years or more.
Are porcelain crowns as strong as teeth?
No, porcelain crowns are not as strong as teeth. However, they are much stronger than other types of dental restoration, such as dental veneers. Porcelain crowns can withstand the force of chewing and biting, making them a good option for restoring the function of a damaged tooth.
Is a porcelain crown better than a ceramic?
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on each individual case. In general, porcelain crowns are a good option for restoring the function and appearance of a damaged tooth. Ceramic crowns are also a good option, but they may not be as strong or durable as porcelain crowns.
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns are one of the most popular dental procedures and for good reason. They are strong and durable and can last for many years with proper care. However, how long a dental crown will last depends on a number of factors, including the type of crown, the location of the tooth, and the patient's oral hygiene habits.

For example, porcelain crowns are more likely to chip and break than metal crowns, and teeth that are under a lot of stress (such as molars) may not last as long as teeth that are not under as much stress (such as incisors). In addition, patients who smoke or have poor oral hygiene habits are more likely to experience problems with their dental crowns. With proper care, however, most dental crowns can last for five to fifteen years.
How much does a crown cost?
The cost of a dental crown varies depending on the type of crown, the location of the tooth, and the dentist. In general, porcelain crowns tend to be more expensive than other types of crowns.

The cost also varies depending on the location of the tooth. For example, molars are usually more expensive to crown than incisors.

Finally, the cost of the procedure also depends on the dentist. Some dentists charge more for dental crowns than others. When choosing a dentist, it is important to compare prices and ask about the cost of the procedure before making a decision.
Do dental crowns hurt?
No, dental crowns do not usually hurt. The procedure is usually quick and easy, and most patients report little to no discomfort afterwards. In some cases, patients may experience some soreness or tenderness in the gums around the tooth, but this is typically mild and goes away within a few days. If you experience any pain or discomfort after the procedure, be sure to contact your dentist.
What is a tooth crown procedure?
A tooth crown procedure is a dental procedure that involves the placement of a crown on a damaged or decayed tooth. The purpose of a crown is to restore the function and appearance of the tooth. Crowns are made out of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and metal.

The procedure usually takes place in two appointments. But with Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we offer same-day porcelain crowns so you can get your smile back in just one visit! Perfect for people who have busy schedules or who want to avoid multiple trips to the dentist.
