Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth shaped ‘cap’ designed to fit above the entire tooth structure. The procedure is an ideal way to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened in some way.

Visit the Smile Gallery to see before and after treatment images.

You may need a crown if:

  • You have had a large filling which has weakened your tooth
  • Root canal treatment has been carried out
  • Your tooth has been fractured due to injury or accident
  • Your tooth is severely decayed
  • Your tooth has worn surfaces


Crowns are available in different materials including precious metals and porcelain. At Alpha House, we offer Emax® Zirconia, porcelain and porcelain bonded crowns to ensure a combination of aesthetic appeal, durability and strength. You can be sure that we take utmost care to meet your dental needs whilst also matching your crown to the rest of your smile.

The procedure

The dentist will need to prepare the tooth before your crown can be fitted. This involves removing the outer tissue, leaving a specially shaped core. An impression will be taken for the bespoke design of your crown and a temporary crown fitted. At your next appointment, your temporary crown will be removed. The new crown will be placed over your tooth and cemented in place permanently once you are happy with the result.


Crowns can also be used to make a bridge, but they work slightly differently. This involves two crowns on either side of a missing tooth or teeth. The replacement teeth are bonded to the crowns on either side of the gap and rest in the gum area where there is tooth loss, creating a seamless and natural looking smile.

Positive: caring, knowledgeable and extremely helpful

I have been a patient at Alpha House for a number of years now and the switch to this practice has been the best thing I have done regarding my teeth. The service and treatment I have received has been second to none. Everyone from the Dentists, Specialists, Hygienists, Dental Nurses and Reception Staff are all caring, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I now have no hesitation in going to the Dentist, where as previously I always felt anxious about going. I feel comfortable attending and am reassured every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Alpha House to anyone who like me gets anxious about attending the Dentist.
