Dental Crowns

Quality Crowns at SDG Dental Wantirna

What is a dental crown?

Dental crowns serve as ‘protective covers’ for your compromised teeth and are crafted to mimic your natural teeth in shape and size to restore both functionality and aesthetics. By protecting against damage, they promote the longevity of treated teeth. Additionally, dental crowns are the final prosthesis placed on dental implants which are used to replace missing teeth.

You can get a dental crown after a root canal treatment if you have damaged teeth or a dental implant placed. At SDG, we offer the best quality dental crowns in Wantirna to replace damaged or missing teeth.

Do I really need a Dental Crown?

You are a candidate for dental crowns if you need to replace or restore a tooth/teeth for any of the following reasons:


  • Cracked, broken or fractured teeth:

    If your teeth have been damaged due to breakage, it can be painful and leave you at high risk of infection. Custom-made dental crowns can help to protect from further damage while restoring the tooth’s function and aesthetics.

  • Missing teeth:

    Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants which are then covered with crowns to completely replace and restore the empty space created by the missing tooth. This also restores aesthetics and functionality such as speech and chewing.

What is the Dental Crown Procedure?

Getting a dental crown is a smooth and simple process here at SDG:

  • First, we will remove any damaged areas and gently shave the tooth to make room for the crown.
  • Then we take an impression of the tooth to help us craft a custom crown that will seamlessly fit into your smile.
  • A temporary crown will be placed to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is fabricated in our dental lab.
  • Our skilled clinicians will then create the customised crown.
  • The temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown will be cemented onto the tooth securely. We’ll ensure that it feels comfortable and looks great!

Our highly skilled and experienced dentists in Wantirna will walk you through the entire process ensuring you are comfortable and at ease during your treatment.


Types of Dental Crowns In Wantirna

There are different materials we can use to make your dental crown, to bring about the best results personally customised for your individual case.


All Ceramic or Porcelain crowns


Purely ceramic or porcelain crowns are made of aluminous porcelain material or pure zirconia or both, which provides superior strength and aesthetics. It has recently become the most favoured of all types of dental prosthesis, as it has the benefits of good strength and the most natural resemblance to the enamel of your teeth, looking like your very own tooth. These also need a small part of your tooth removed — about 1mm around the sides and 1.5mm on the top. This is because they can break easily if they’re too thin or are not supported well.

Full metal crowns


These are made completely of metal, usually with palladium, cobalt and nickel and are commonly used for the most posterior teeth which don’t show much when you smile or speak. This is because they are fully metal-coloured. They are quite conservative and don’t require much cutting of your tooth to be fabricated, usually just 0.5mm in thickness. Their main purpose is to bring back the functionality of your tooth that you use for chewing while helping to restore its resilience to fractures if your tooth has been severely compromised.

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM)


These crowns feature a sturdy metal base with a porcelain exterior, offering the durability of metal and the aesthetic appeal of porcelain. Custom-shaded to match your teeth, they provide an aesthetically pleasing solution for tooth replacement. However, their placement requires the removal of a slightly thicker tooth layer to accommodate your bite, , typically around 1.5mm. Due to the underlying metal base, they may appear slightly more opaque than natural teeth.
