Crowns are ideal for decayed or broken teeth where a filling may no longer be possible or advised. They can help improve the appearance and strength of the tooth.

Crowns

A crown is shaped like a natural tooth and can be comprised of porcelain or gold. There are a variety of options available, depending on where your tooth is located and personal choice.

The type of crown or veneer placed depends on several factors such as tooth position, quality and quantity of remaining tooth structure and biting forces present being some of them. Your dentist will carefully consider all these factors and most importantly what is best for the long-term functional and biological health of the tooth.

Fillings

Here at the Mews we focus heavily on preventing disease, including tooth decay. Should you have tooth decay, lose a filling, or fracture a tooth – a filling may be the solution. The dentist will carefully assess the tooth to determine viable treatment options, and may suggest a tooth coloured filling be placed. Composite (tooth coloured) fillings bond to the tooth, and can withstand the chewing and biting forces placed on teeth in the mouth. During the procedure, the tooth and surrounding area will most likely be numbed with local anaesthetic to provide a painless experience. The filling will be shaped and polished to be as natural as possible, and fit in harmony with your bite.

Crowns and fillings FAQ

How long does a crown typically last for?
On average a crown should last between 10 and 30 years. You can prolong the longevity of a crown by keeping up a good standard of oral hygiene – brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and ensuring you visit a dentist and hygienist regularly.
What should I avoid doing after having a crown or filling?
You should avoid chewing anything until the local anaesthetic wears off. A crown needs at least 30 minutes after it has been placed to set, so it is best to avoid solid foods for an hour or two after having the procedure. Avoid hard and crunchy foods for at least 24 hours after having a crown fitted and avoid the same foods for up to 2 weeks after having a filling. If you experience any tooth sensitivity after having a filling, you should avoid hot and cold food and drinks.
How long does a filling last for?
On average dental fillings last for about 10 years. Amalgam (or metal fillings) tend to last longer than composite fillings, but composite fillings have the benefit of looking more natural and blending in with the rest of your teeth.

"Thank you so much for your amazing registration check up.  I came back and told my family what a treat they were in for in a couple of weeks.  I was super impressed with the whole experience and I'm a nervous patient when it comes to being in the dentist chair.  I didn't even think about most of the procedure because your calm and positive explanations were perfect and your team were brilliant too."
