Dental Crowns

Are you frustrated that teeth repaired recently with fillings are still breaking all the time?

Are you looking for an option that lasts longer and can give you more confidence when you bite?

Crowns are placed over your existing teeth to help strengthen the tooth and also can prevent cracks in the tooth from splitting the tooth. They can be matched perfectly to your natural teeth.

Dental Crowns: Restoring Strength, Function, and Beauty to Your Smile

At Care For Smiles, we understand the significance of a healthy and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dental crowns are a versatile and effective solution for restoring damaged or weakened teeth, providing both strength and a natural-looking appearance.


What Are Dental Crowns?

A Protective Shield for Your Teeth

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-fitted covers that encase the visible portion of a tooth. Crafted from durable materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, crowns are designed to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth that has been compromised due to various reasons.

Why Choose Dental Crowns?

  1. Restoration of Damaged Teeth: Crowns are an ideal solution for teeth with significant decay, fractures, or large fillings, providing a protective and supportive covering to restore their integrity.

  2. Enhanced Strength and Functionality: Crowns strengthen weakened teeth, allowing for improved functionality, biting, and chewing without the risk of further damage.

  3. Cosmetic Improvement: Beyond functionality, dental crowns also serve a cosmetic purpose, enhancing the appearance of a tooth by improving its shape, alignment, and color.

  4. Support for Dental Procedures: Crowns play a crucial role in supporting other dental procedures, such as bridges, dental implants, or root canal therapy, ensuring comprehensive and effective treatment.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns

With proper care, dental crowns can last 10 years or longer. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices contribute to their longevity.

The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. Post-placement, any mild discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Porcelain and ceramic crowns resist staining, but they do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. It's essential to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent discoloration.

The Dental Crown Process



Dr. Rishay Naidoo will assess the condition of your tooth, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine if a dental crown is the appropriate solution for you.



The tooth receiving the crown is prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel to accommodate the crown's thickness. Impressions are then taken to create a custom-fitted crown.

Fitting and Adjustments

Temporary Crown (if needed)

In some cases, a temporary crown may be placed while your permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental lab.

Final Placement

Once your custom crown is ready, Dr. Rishay will securely bond it to your tooth, ensuring a snug fit and natural appearance.
