A stronger, lasting smile you can trust
Restore your tooth to its former glory with our dental crowns in Melbourne
Everyone deserves a smile they are proud of. Life happens. Teeth chip. Teeth wear down. Teeth sometimes need a little extra TLC.
When there’s insufficient tooth structure to support porcelain or composite veneers, a dental crown can fill the gap. They offer a complete restoration of your tooth, improving strength, structure, and most importantly – they give you back your winning smile.
What are dental crowns?
A tooth cap is often the difference from shying away with a closed mouth to sharing your smile with the world. It can give you back that beaming confidence to wear your smile with pride.
Thanks to advances in technology, along with repairing your teeth, enamel and structural damage, porcelain crowns can deliver a beautiful smile that you’re proud to show the world. People won’t even be able to tell you have one!
Here at Dental + Skin Clinic, our expert team creates custom-made porcelain crowns in Melbourne to match the size, shape and hue of your existing tooth so that the end result is natural and life-like. With regular checkups and maintenance, dental crowns last upwards of 30 years and can withstand the trauma of biting, chewing and food grinding.
It’s the perfect solution that will keep on giving.
OUR UNIQUE, FIVE-STEP APPROACH
PERMANENT PORCELAIN VENEERS
A smile to be proud of…
One of the first things many people see is our smile, which is why we want to be able to wear it with pride.
Over the years, general wear and tear can mean your teeth have had better days, but don’t let that stop you from grinning from ear to ear.
A dental crown is the ideal solution if you’re suffering from a large cavity, it can also help if you have a tooth that is:
- Worn down
This incredible tooth cap can completely restore your cracked or worn-down tooth and breathe new life into it. There are a number of things to consider when getting a crown put in:
- Strength: a porcelain crown will protect your remaining tooth and won’t wear down with age.
- Durability: you want to ensure your crown can withstand biting, chewing and other day-to-day activities.
- Natural: in order to create a winning smile, your crown needs to be as natural-looking as possible to blend in.
Smile Transformation Packages
At Dental + Skin Clinic, we use the latest technology to give you a strong, durable crown that will see you through the next 30 years. Thanks to our custom-made solution, your crown will blend in naturally leaving you with a winning smile you will be proud of.
As the name suggests, a temporary crown can be put in place during a medical emergency, as a quick fix while you’re waiting for a permanent one to be made. A crown can mean the difference between a tooth extraction and getting rid of the tooth altogether, which is why they are so invaluable.
Quite often, a root canal is needed to remove the infected area and nerve in the root of the tooth, before it is cleaned, shaped and primed for a dental crown to be placed on top to protect the tooth and restore it to its original function.
A crown can also be used with a dental implant. This surgical implant replaces a missing tooth, with the crown placed on top so it looks completely natural, while restoring all the functions of a normal tooth.
You can find that winning smile again in no time.

These, on the other hand, cover both the front and back surface of your tooth, offering complete restoration to a damaged or worn away tooth.
