Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a custom made ‘cap’ that is glued over the top of a tooth.

It provides a strong protective cover for a tooth that’s structural integrity has been compromised.

At Deall Dental we used trusted professional laboratories to make our dental crowns – rather than in-house milling machines. We strongly believe this produces crowns which are superior in strength, precision and aesthetics which benefits our patients.

Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal or ceramic and we offer all of these types at Deall Dental. The type of crown we recommend for your tooth will be dependent on the specific situation.

Crowns are significantly stronger than fillings which makes them a better long-term solution for teeth that have experienced significant damage.

A crown costs approximately $1500 before any health fund contribution.

This depends if your private health insurance cover includes major dental. A good health fund with major dental cover will contribute approximately $800 to your crown work per year.

Please ask our receptionist to give you an on-the-spot heath fund quote to determine exactly what your gap payment will be.

Again, it depends. It depends on the location in the mouth (back or front), the health of the tooth under the crown, the health of the gums, the presence of clenching and grinding habits, your diet and the level of oral hygiene you maintain. On average, a well-cared for crown lasts somewhere between 10-20 years. We do have some patients who had their crowns placed with us over 30 years ago!

Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits and regular dental visits will help prolong the life of your crown.

We offer the full spectrum of general dentistry treatments including:
