Dental Crowns in Singapore: Restoring Smiles with Tooth Crowning

Home » Services » Cosmetic Dentistry » Dental Crowns in Singapore: Restoring Smiles with Tooth Crowning

When a tooth is fragile due to a large dental restoration, broken down, or irreversibly discoloured, dental crowns offer an effective solution. At TEETH @ Tiong Bahru, our experienced dentists specialise in crown dental surgery to protect teeth from fracture and restore both function and aesthetics.


A dental crown is a custom-made cap that completely covers the entire tooth. It gives a tooth strength and restores the damaged tooth to its natural appearance and full function. Dental crowns in Singapore are an excellent option for teeth that are cracked, weakened by extensive dental fillings, or fractured.


Types of Dental Crowns Available

At TEETH @ Tiong Bahru, we offer a variety of dental crown materials to suit different needs and budgets:

  • Porcelain Crowns: Natural-looking and ideal for front teeth
  • Zirconia Crowns: Extremely durable and suitable for both front and back teeth
  • E-max Crowns: Thin yet strong, perfect for minimal tooth reduction

The choice of material can affect the cost of crown teeth in Singapore, which we’ll discuss during your consultation.


Benefits of Dental Crowns

Protecting vulnerable or unaesthetic teeth with crowns can give patients peace of mind and restore a smile. They are stronger than alternative treatments like inlays, onlays, and veneers, making them an excellent choice in many cases. Following a root canal treatment, a dental crown placed over a tooth will help protect the damaged tooth and restore it to full function.

Additional benefits of tooth crowning in Singapore include improved bite alignment, long-lasting solutions for damaged teeth, versatility in addressing various dental issues, and boosted confidence with a restored smile.


Dental Crown Process and Crown Dental Surgery

Once it is determined that you need a crown dental procedure after discussing the pros, cons, risks and crown dental surgery price, our dentists will take a small X-ray to ensure the tooth to be crowned is sound and stable. If the X-ray is fine, then the treatment will proceed.

Before starting, you may require local anaesthetic. This helps to numb the tooth or area in question. Our clinic always applies a surface numbing gel before administering local anaesthetic. If you have any concerns regarding analgesia, please do let us know so that we can make the experience as anxiety-free as possible.

Our dentist will take a small impression of your tooth. We will then trim the tooth just enough to leave space for the crown material to be placed. An impression is also taken of the tooth to be crowned and the opposing teeth. This will be sent to the dental laboratory along with the tooth shading instructions.

A temporary crown will be made and cemented, and the occlusion will be checked.

When the dental crown returns from the dental laboratory, your temporary crown will be removed, and a new, more permanent crown will be placed. If you are happy with the fit and appearance, we will cement the crown in place. Your bite will be checked and adjusted if necessary.
