Affordable Crowns & Bridges For All Patients

Crowns are made of natural looking porcelain and are made to improve your overall smile or to blend in with your own teeth.

What are they used for, how do they work & how can they help you

Dental crowns are a critical service provided by GP Dental in Adelaide, with three clinic locations in Hallett Cove, Kensington Park, and Warradale. Dental crowns are used to restore damaged or broken teeth, providing an essential treatment option to help improve oral health.

At GP Dental, dental crowns are commonly used to repair teeth that have significant decay, cracks, or chips. They can also be used to cover a tooth that has undergone a root canal or to anchor a dental bridge. In addition to their functional benefits, dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, such as to improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth.

Dental crowns work by encasing the damaged tooth, providing a protective layer that strengthens the tooth and prevents further damage. GP Dental offers a range of crown materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both, which can be customized to match the shape and color of the surrounding teeth.

GP Dental’s dental crown services provide numerous benefits to oral health, such as preventing further damage to weakened teeth and improving alignment, making it easier to eat and speak. Dental crowns also have a long lifespan and require the same level of care as natural teeth, including regular brushing and flossing, and routine dental checkups.

If you are in Adelaide and require dental crown services, GP Dental offers a range of options across their three clinic locations in Hallett Cove, Kensington Park, and Warradale. Contact GP Dental today to discuss whether dental crowns are the right treatment option for you.

  • Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your teeth, making them a great solution to restore form and function.
  • Crowns can be made from different materials, which include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain fused-to-metal crown and the all-metal crown.
  • Sometimes the gum can recede over time, exposing a metal margin from the underlying layer. At GP Dental Partners, we recommend porcelain crowns for our patients due to the durability and strength, as well as their aesthetically pleasing appearance in the mouth, which avoids this exposure of metal.
  • It is common that the fitting of a crown is completed in two visits. During your first visit, the tooth is prepared for the crown, which requires tooth reduction, an impression is made of the tooth, and a temporary crown is placed over the prepared tooth. At the next visit, the temporary crown is removed and the final crown is fitted, adjusted and finally cemented into place.
  • Crowns do not discolour.
  • Crowns are ntural looking and one of the most durable restorations used in dentistry.

Indications for a crown

  1. A previously filled tooth, where more filling exists than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the filling. This increases the risk of fracture significantly.
  2. Extensive damage from decay.
  3. Discolouration of your teeth.
  4. Teeth that are abnormal in appearance due to shape or size, and to some extent, position.
  5. The aesthetic look of the existing tooth compromises your entire smile.
  6. Fractures or broken teeth.
  7. Root canal treated teeth- After root canal, teeth tend to become brittle and are more apt to fracture. These teeth need to be protected by a crown.
  8. Bridges – When missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, the adjacent teeth require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth.
