Teeth can fracture and break despite your best efforts – whether a sporting injury or an unforeseen accident. In these situations, our strong and durable porcelain crowns can restore the function and appearance of the tooth, while helping strengthen it for the future.
Our expert Marylebone dentists know that when it comes to treatment, a discreet option is always preferred by our patients. With porcelain crowns cleverly matched to your smile, we can help fix the affected tooth while creating a natural-looking result that others won’t guess is a dental restoration.
Your Porcelain Crowns Journey
1. Consultation for Dental Crowns
The initial stage in your crown treatment with our Marylebone dentist will always be a thorough consultation. Consultations give us the opportunity to view your dental history, assess your smile, and discuss treatment in advance – with absolutely no commitment.
Porcelain crowns require some gentle preparation (filing) of the tooth on all sides, to ensure a perfect fit, resulting in a seamless smile. At our Marylebone dentist, an anaesthetic is offered to help manage any discomfort during the process. The bonding material is used to adhere to the crown, which is perfectly shaped to your tooth. In some cases, a temporary crown may be needed, which we can discuss with you at the relevant time.
At our dental practice in Marylebone, we’re committed to dental excellence – so in our minds, the treatment doesn’t end when we put down our tools. With crowns, you should be able to have the same diet as before, but may need to avoid hard, chewy foods at first. Crowns will need replacing in the future, but thanks to the durable porcelain material, they last many years.

about porcelain crowns at 19 Wimpole Street Dental Practice
At 19 Wimpole Street in Marylebone, we offer anaesthetic so you shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment.
Patients love porcelain crowns for their natural-looking aesthetic. They’re long-lasting too, and can restore bite and chew function.
Some patients may need to adjust their diet or habits (for example, crunching ice or chewing on pen lids), which could damage the crowns. Also, while porcelain crowns are long-lasting, they will need replacing in the future.
Because preparation of the tooth is needed, this can weaken its structure. In teeth which have been crowned, there may also be a slightly elevated risk of future decay, or damage to the inside of the tooth (the pulp).
While long-lasting, your porcelain crowns may be subjected to wear and tear over time, and crack or chip. Regular check-ups with your dentist help ensure you keep on top of your treatment and know when it’s time for a replacement filling.
