Dental Crowns Brisbane – Affordable Porcelain Crown

Our dedicated dental team excels in crafting dental crowns meticulously tailored to your mouth’s unique contours.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are a fixed tooth restoration that appears and functions like your natural teeth. They can also be called dental caps since they are cemented over your shaved natural tooth just like a cap!

Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, some of which include:

  • Stainless steel crowns
  • Gold alloy crowns
  • All-porcelain crowns
  • All-zirconia crowns
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns
  • Porcelain-fused-to-zirconia crowns

The metal crowns are best used in the back of your teeth since they contrast the look of your natural teeth while the porcelain and zirconia crowns appear translucent and typically match the colour of your natural teeth, making them ideal for front teeth restorations.

Functions Of Dental Crowns

We already mentioned that dental crowns work to restore your smile. However and quite fortunately, the purpose of dental crowns goes even further. Below are some of the reasons you may need to get dental crowns:

  • To protect a weak tooth from fracturing and to hold together the cracked parts of a tooth.
  • To restore a fractured or worn-down tooth.
  • To cover or restore a tooth that has undergone a large filling with little tooth left.
  • To cover stained, severely discoloured, or misshapen teeth.
  • To cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place.
  • For cosmetic modification.

Dental crowns serve quite a lot of purposes, and you can always contact our friendly team at Moorooka Dental Care to find out more. Now, let us take a look at instances where you need a dental crown.

Benefits Of Dental Crowns

  • Dental crowns relieve discomfort since the cap prevents tooth sensitivity to pressure and temperature.
  • Crowns do not require any special oral care as all you need to do is follow regular good dental hygiene.
  • Dental crowns look natural as they are custom-made to the fit and appearance of your natural teeth.
  • The crowns protect your tooth from further damage and save you potential costs from dental work.
  • Dental crowns can last from 10-15 years under proper care.

Dental Crown Procedure

Now that you have basic information on dental crowns, let us take a look at the procedure in Brisbane.

The number of appointments needed to complete the procedure will vary from dental office to dental office, with factors like whether they manufacture the crowns in-house playing a major role.

Let us take a look at the dental crown procedure our skilled dentists perform for patients here at Moorooka Dental Care.

Preparing for the Dental Procedure

The dental crown procedure will start with tooth prepping. Your dentist will treat the decay, if any, and then shave all around the tooth for the dental cap to fit.

After which, they will take your teeth impressions. Your dentist may use impression material to take the impressions and check your bite. However, some dental offices in Brisbane take impressions digitally.

Once the impression is taken, it is milled in the dental lab, with the process taking usually 15 to 20 minutes depending on the milling unit. Some dental offices do not manufacture the crowns in-office but rather send them to a dental lab, which means you will have your crowns placed at a later date.

The Dental Crown Placement Process

When the crown is ready, the dentist will place it over your shaved tooth and make due adjustments. Before they cement the tooth, they will prepare the crown by etching it, rinsing it, and priming it.

The crown will be capped onto the tooth using bonding material. Your dentist will likely brush away any residual bonding material before they harden it. Then they will use light to cure it.

The dentist will then use an explorer to remove any residual hardened pieces and check the margins. Then they will spread a liquid on it, which prevents staining and helps with the curing process.

Dental Crown Costs in Brisbane

One thing most patients want to hear as soon as they learn about an effective tooth restoration option is the price. In Brisbane, the cost of dental crowns starts at around $1100 and could go as high as $3000.

Factors such as the expertise of the dentist performing the procedure, the dental crown type, and how the crown is made will impact the overall treatment cost.

Fortunately, there are several ways to save on the cost of your dental crowns in Brisbane. One of them is making use of your dental insurance. Ask your insurance provider to see if your plan will cover your dental crown treatment cost.

Also, dental clinics like Moorooka Dental Care offer financing options and payment plans to make covering the cost of the treatment easier for you. We will be happy to guide you and see what plan is best suited for you.

I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.

I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.

I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.

Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.

The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂

I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.

Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.

This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.

Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks

Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!
