A dental crown is a covering for a substantially damaged or decayed tooth. The existing structure of your tooth is filed to shape, and a crown is bonded to replicate the function and appearance of a natural tooth. Crowns are a more affordable restoration option than a dental implant, which is screwed directly into the jawbone.

At Stella Dental in Stafford, we use the high-end Emax crowns – special restorations made from lithium disilicate material instead of metal or ceramic. Because Emax crowns are cut from a single block of material, there are no faults or joints in the replica tooth, making it highly durable. Emax crowns are slightly translucent, closely matching your natural teeth, and at Stella Dental they come with a one-year guarantee.

Emax crowns stand out from other high-end capping options such as zirconium crowns by nature of their strength and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Cut from a single block of a tough material called lithium disilicate, Emax crowns have no joints, making them better equipped to withstand pressure than even zirconium crowns. Emax crowns present a very low risk of chipping or other forms of breakage.
In terms of aesthetics, zirconium crowns can’t be guaranteed to match the colour of your natural teeth and may be more visually detectable to others when they look at your smile. E-max crowns have a translucent quality, which mimics the appearance of your teeth, and customisable shade options to ensure your smile is exactly colour-matched.
First, we’ll take a closer look at your tooth and determine how best to reinforce your tooth.
Next, we’ll prepare your tooth, then expertly bond the crown in place for a seamless result.
Finally, we’ll recommend ways to look after your new crown for the future.
A dental crown is a replica tooth, made to fit over the trimmed and shaped remainder of your existing tooth. The crown covers and caps the entire tooth, extending all the way down to the gum line and restoring shape, colour, and function.

Dental crowns can be used to treat a variety of needs. If you have undergone root canal treatment for a tooth infection, for example, your natural tooth can become brittle, and a crown might be required to protect the treated tooth from further damage. Crowns are also commonly placed for aesthetic purposes, covering stains which can’t be bleached or a tooth that has become far too badly damaged for less extensive restorations such as fillings. Crowns are also used to anchor bridges to adjacent teeth when replacing a missing tooth.
We will numb your mouth during the crown placement process to make sure you don’t feel any discomfort when your existing tooth is trimmed.
Emax crowns tend to last for at least 10 years, but it’s not uncommon for them to last much longer.
You can look after a dental crown just as you would a natural tooth – brush twice a day and floss daily, and make sure to check in for your dental hygiene visit every six months.
