A dental crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a tooth, giving it a natural tooth appearance.A crown is sometimes called a ‘cap’. Crowns are a good way to restore broken, weak or decayed teeth. They are usually made of gold, porcelain or a combination of these materials.

When are dental crowns recommended?

Crowns are used to restore teeth that have:

  • Had root canal work.
  • Where there is severe tooth loss.
  • Where there had been restoration.
  • To replace existing crowns.
  • To protect restored teeth from further breakage.
  • To correct a bad aesthetic appearance.
  • To restore broken teeth and prevent breakage.

Dental Crowns are used in children to:

  • Save a decayed tooth that has been damaged.
  • To support a filling.
  • To protect a tooth that is at high risk of decay.
  • To decrease the frequency of the administration of anesthesia.

Procedure for dental crowns:

  • A proper clinical assessment is done and an X-ray will be taken.
  • The tooth will be prepared with digital scans that will be sent to the dental laboratory. After this, a temporary crown will be fitted. We are among the few clinics in the UK that use the iTero digital scanning system where the hand held wand provides a 3D and digital image of your teeth rather than using a traditional rubber mould. The digital image is then electronically sent to the laboratory speeding up the manufacturing process.
  • The itero Digital Scanner helps to overcome problems with impressions and the molds that traditionally needed to be taken for crowns.
  • The final crown is fitted once it has been returned from the laboratory.

Types of dental crowns available at our clinic:

All Ceramic Crown

All ceramic crowns do not have any grey metal and can be used for the front teeth. If the gum recedes overtime, there will be no grey margin visible.

Metal Ceramic Crown

Metal Ceramic crowns are generally used for the back teeth and feature a metal core and porcelain. However, thin porcelain layers may fracture more easily than other crowns.

All Zirconium Crowns

These crowns are used for the back teeth. They do not contain porcelain and so the risk of crown fracture is less. All Zirconium crowns require less drilling than gold crowns.

Gold Crowns

These are the strongest crowns that can be used for the back teeth. Gold crowns require the least tooth reduction.

There are several reasons why you may require a dental crown. If you have tooth discoloration from an earlier filling/procedure, decay or if you need to protect a tooth, then a crown might be a good solution. If you are experiencing severe toothache fix an appointment with our dentists to find out if a dental crown will solve the problem.

Your new crown should last from5 to 15 years. Having regular checkups and maintaining good hygiene habits may mean that your dental crown could last for 25-30 years.

When your dental crown is mad ewe will match the color with your surrounding teeth. At Camden High Street Dental Practice, we will help you to restore your confident smile.

You will find that the treated area is slightly different from other parts of your mouth. However, this will resolve after a few days. If it does continue get in touch with us and we will make any adjustments necessary.

Fitting a dental crown will require at least two appointments.On the first visit, your tooth will be prepared for the crown and an impression will be made of the tooth. After this, a temporary crown will be placed over your prepared tooth. During this visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the final crown will be adjusted, fitted and cemented into place.

If your dental crowns have been damaged or worn down, then call us fora replacement. We will have to remove the crown and provide you with a temporary crown until the new crown is made.

If you have had dental crowns in the past, then older materials may be used for the crowns and you might choose metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns to restore your gorgeous smile and feel good about yourself.

Patient Stories


I have been with this dental practice for the past 10 years and have always received excellent care from my dentist Dr. Prasad. I would recommend this dental practice. Friendly service and a dentist who cares for his patients’ dental health .

Undine S.

Had an appointment with Dr Romain Prassad today what a lovely and kind dentist really put me at ease and is doing everything he can to help save my tooth thankyou so much ☺️

Tor M.

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

Toby R.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Suzanne L.

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Camden High Street Dental Practice. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
