Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a protective covering for your tooth that may be recommended following an accident, injury or breakage. They can last for several years with proper care and are matched to your smile.

The durable solution
for damaged teeth

A type of tooth restoration, a crown may be recommended if a tooth has been damaged, has a large cavity in it or you’ve had root canal treatment. Sometimes, a crown can be offered as an aesthetic choice.

Crowns are a strong, stable choice for your smile. They’re ideal for those patients with cracked, chipped, snapped and broken teeth, capping over the imperfection while strengthening the tooth. At our Ripon dental practice, you can expect:

  • A friendly, caring team with years of experience
  • The latest modern facilities in an ideal location
  • Dental health advice, demonstrations and check-ups
  • Denplan membership, to make oral care easier
  • Experts in dental restoration treatments

Frequently Asked Questions
about Dental Crowns

Your new crown will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, however the temporary one may be more noticeable.

The restoration may feel strange at first, but you’ll get used to it with time. If it’s causing any discomfort after the healing period, let our Ripon experts know and we can adjust if needed.

With regular check-ups and proper oral care, you can expect dental crowns to last a number of years. A check-up also allows our Ripon team to check for any signs it made need replacing.

No; a local anaesthetic or numbing agent may be applied to keep discomfort at a minimum. After treatment, over-the-counter pain relief can help manage any pain.

We can craft crowns from various materials, including gold, non-precious metal, zirconia or emax. Whatever you choose, your new crown will be strong and long-lasting.

Your Patient Journey

For more than 30 years, we’ve served generations of the same families here in Boroughbridge and Ripon. Known for our friendly approach, experienced team and commitment to quality here’s what you can expect from your treatment.


1. Consultation

Our Ripon dentists will first check you’re suitable for a crown. We do all we can to save the tooth and prevent extraction, but in some cases, it may be better to remove the tooth and place a dental implant instead.

2. Treatment

If there is any decayed or damaged tissue, this will first need to be removed. Your tooth is then shaped, an impression taken, and a crown custom-made. You’ll need two appointments, and to wear a temporary crown while the permanent one is made.

3. Aftercare

Your new crown is easy to care for – our Ripon dentists will provide detailed instructions on doing just that. We can also advise on ways to help your crown last longer (for instance, changes to diet or lifestyle).

Delighted With The Results!

“I have a fairly intense anxiety problem with going to the dentist. The staff here put me at ease. I had a tooth out a couple of days ago. They were great. Each time I go, I wonder what I was worried about. I’m far more relaxed about going now.

Professional, friendly people doing a wonderful job.”
