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.

I was absolutely terrified of dentists in general before visiting the Alpha House Dental Practice - I would physically shake with fear. Unfortunately I developed a painful abscess and looked for a local dental surgery to me. All I can say is that I feel so lucky to be a patient of the Alpha House Dental Surgery. Mr Hussain is a wonderful dentist - caring, gentle and understanding.

He understood my fears and did his best to put me at ease. The whole team at Alpha House are excellent, second to none, and all are extremely caring and kind. For anyone with a fear of dentists please go and visit Alpha House to see Mr Hussain and his lovely team. It doesn't feel like any dental surgery I have ever visited before. You really will be in the safest hands. Thank you to you all!
We were most impressed by the way in which you and your team handled every aspect of the job down to keeping our 2 year old son entertained it made the whole thing a pleasurable experience.
