Dental Crowns

At O’Halloran Hill Dental we provide dental crowns of the highest quality to help extend the life of your teeth.

Crowns are also known as caps. They give you the benefit of protecting your tooth and its structure (like a helmet for your tooth) in a way that is not possible with normal filling materials.

Crowns cover the entire tooth, restoring it to its original size and shape. Crowns are specifically designed to strengthen teeth that have a high risk of fracture, or have already started to break down.

At O’Halloran Hill Dental, we are able to provide crowns in a day with the very latest CEREC technology.

CEREC is innovative digital dental technology that allows for same-day major dentistry. This includes crowns, inlays and onlays.

CEREC technology is a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional crowns, with the following benefits:

  • Same-day treatment
  • Stronger than normal filling materials
  • Results look and function almost like natural teeth
  • No unpleasant impressions

Your dentist will first determine if CEREC Technology is the best treatment for you.

In just one day:

  • Your tooth is prepared
  • An intra-oral camera photographs your teeth.
  • 3D model of your dental crown is designed on the computer.
  • A special milling unit creates the dental crown from a ceramic block.
  • Your dentist will fit the dental work and make any necessary adjustments.

Our dentists personally design and build your crowns to ensure their aesthetic superiority.

The crowns we use are fully ceramic, which allows it to be matched to your original tooth colour and blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Frequently asked questions about dental crowns in Adelaide

The placement of the crown in your mouth can also play a determining factor in the life of your crown. Some crowns are able to last a lifetime whereas others may crack and need to be replaced. On average, a crown can last between 10 and 30 years when well cared for.

There are four common materials dentists use to make dental crowns. They include: 

  1. all ceramic (porcelain-based) 
  2. porcelain fused to metal
  3. gold alloys 
  4. base metal alloys

Your crown may not need a special care, just the normal care you give to your ‘real’ tooth. It is however important to understand that the underlying tooth is not protected by the crown from decay and gum disease. 

This is why you must stick to a good oral hygiene practice.

Patients will only need a local anesthetic to remain comfortable during the crowning process.

There may be mild toothaches and sensitivity but with painkillers, the patient will be fine.

But in case the pain is severe and prolonged, make sure you see a dentist.

There is normally a difference when you compare your metal crown to your teeth. However, tooth colour crowns can be made indistinguishable from your existing teeth.


Unlike the real teeth, materials that make the crown don’t respond to whitening treatments. 

If you decide to whiten the natural enamel, the crown will be different from the rest of the teeth. As part of your smile makeover, you can whiten your teeth before having a dental crown or replace your crown with a lighter one.

A dental bridge can replace missing teeth. For tooth decay, fillings, onlays and inlays might work.

Dental bonding can also restore chipped or cracked teeth instead of a crown. Porcelain veneers or a combination of orthodontics and teeth whitening can help you achieve a purely cosmetic treatment.

Since this is not your natural tooth, you may feel some discomfort and sensitivity. Immediately after the procedure, you may feel some sensitivity on your newly crowned tooth since the anaesthesia will start wearing off. 

In case the tooth that was crowned still has a nerve, patients are bound to experience cold or heat sensitivity. A dentist will recommend that you brush your teeth with a toothpaste designed for such teeth. 

The sensitivity or pain that occurs when you bite down means the crown is too high on your tooth. This is a problem that can be fixed when you call your dentist. Other problems that could develop include a chipped crown especially those made of all porcelain. 

A loose crown can also be a problem especially when the cement washes out from under your crown. In worst cases, the crown may fall off due to improper fit or lack of cement.
