Dental Crowns

Forget the diamonds and pearls of her Majesty's head crown, a crown in dentistry is used to transform damaged, chipped or misshapen teeth in both function and appearance to preserve and restore your remaining tooth.

Get in touch with the team

Unlike a veneer, which is placed at the very front of the tooth, a crown permanently encapsulates the entirety of the remaining tooth; snugly fitting like a glove 360 degrees around it. Its main purpose is to strengthen and protect the remaining tooth underneath so you can chew with confidence.

At Hampshire Dentists, Southampton, our dentists works closely with you to ensure that your crown looks natural amongst your other teeth and smile, taking into consideration colour, shape, texture and the comfort to your bite. The crown is then carefully crafted using materials which feel both comfortable and natural, whilst also being strong, long lasting and hardwearing.

Before and After Dental

This involves

Crowns can be made from metal and metal free materials with more modern materials such as metal free white Zirconia giving strength to the more cosmetic tooth like porcelain on top.

Crowns are made from the following materials:

Porcelain Bonded to metal :

The crowns metal framework gives the natural looking porcelain its strength. We used an award-winning cosmetic technician to handcraft these, like a bespoke piece of jewellery.

Porcelain Bonded to Zirconia:

More modern highly cosmetic crowns are metal free and are given their strength by zirconia framework. Handcrafted by an award-winning cosmetic technician.

Gold Shell Crowns:

Not just for the bling factor, these thin but extremely hard wearing crowns are best suited to the back of the mouth where the chewing forces are greatest and there are no cosmetic concerns.

Composite and Acrylic Crowns

Relatively low cost and quick to produce but with limited strength than the former alternatives. These may be used as temporary solutions in visible areas at the front of the mouth.

I love my dentist now!
I am a very nervous patient and I haven’t had much luck with dentists in the past. so I was apprehensive joining this new surgery. However from my first conversations with the lovely receptionists to my most recent treatment, I have had great service. Every time I leave with a smile, I can honestly say that I am no longer scared of visiting the dentist.

Lily Downey
The entire team from the Dentists to the receptionists are exceptional within this practice. My 10 year old Daughter is currently undergoing some extreme orthodontic treatment and the team really do go the extra mile to make her feel at ease and comfortable during our monthly visits. Andrea our Orthodontist is a genius and we can’t believe the difference to our daughters teeth over such a short period of time. Our Daughter was so self-conscious about her smile and lost all confidence, she has now been transformed into a smiling social butterfly. Thank you so much !

I saw Dr Rob Hanna for my checkup this afternoon and was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
Very professional and thorough throughout my appointment. Everything was explained and I was made to feel at ease from start to finish.
As soon as I finished my dental checkup I was seen by Charlotte my hygienist. Once again my appointment was professional and thorough and I came away very impressed with my treatment and the way I was looked after.
Would recommend Hampshire Dentists to anybody that was looking for a dentist.

This dentist is wonderful. Everyone is so happy and helpful, they have really helped me over the years. Special shout out to Cadge who is so lovely and caring, always asking if I’m okay and checking in throughout the appointment. Thank you all! 😊

Thanks to Cadge and Marius I walked into the surgery with no fear or worry this morning. I am usually terrified of visiting the dentist but here I know I will be treated properly and pain free. On my last visit they made me feel so welcome and reassured. Today Cadge was is high spirits and dressed as an Elf which added to the atmosphere. I left feeling relaxed and happy.

Dr. Robin and the team do an excellent work. No pain, quick and effective. Not cheap though but when I was in pain, they gave me an appointment for the very next day and the job was done.
