Dental Crown

dental crown

A crown is a type of dental ‘restoration’ which completely covers a tooth or placed on to a dental implant.

Crowns are custom made for each patient. They should be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.

They are usually made from a metal core, with a porcelain exterior that is the same colour as your other teeth.

Patients often need a crown after having a root canal treatment (tooth nerve treatment) or if they have had a very deep cavity.

Dental crowns are bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.

A crown can also be placed on top of a dental implant. Its held in place by the implant that is screwed into the jaw.

Depending on your needs, it can be fixed in place via a screw or bonded to the abutment on the top of an implant.

If you think you may be in need of a crown, book an appointment with one of our general dentists.

I was suffering from chronic lower back pain for months. I attended Michael at physiologic in smithfield and found him very helpful and friendly. I got an MRI within one week and he explained my condition in plain english. Michael showed me how to manage my back pain at home and it is now a distant memory. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I was treated by Niamh at physiologic in Lucan after my ACL reconstruction. I found Niamh very helpful and knowledgeable. I was also surprised to see the full Gym setup in the clinic so I could do my rehab in the clinic , it really helped speed up my recovery.
I attended Michael from physiologic at his Maynooth clinic for ongoing tension headaches. pain killers just didn’t work anymore. Michael treated me with some Dry-Needling and after 3 treatments my headaches were gone. He also showed me some exercises to do to prevent them coming back. Fantastic service, great staff.
