Our dental crowns are placed within the same appointment, taking only one hour to make on-site. Our CEREC crowns are long-lasting and avoid the dark line that’s consistent with porcelain-fused to metal crowns.
We’re based on St James Road East Grinstead with on-street parking – visit us:
At The Smile Gallery, you can choose metal-based or full ceramic crowns.
Every crown we offer is strong and durable. The choice often comes down to the final look and cost.
Patients can spread the cost of their crown using 0% finance over 12 months, which means you can pay £61.66 per month with no additional interest. That said, if you choose to pay a £200 deposit at your appointment, you can reduce your monthly payments to £45 per month.
If you’ve opted for a CEREC crown, you can have this placed within an hour and go home without the need to return.
Your dentist, for example, Dr Blythe, will begin by administering a local anaesthetic and filing your tooth down to the correct size and shape to accommodate the crown.
Instead of taking an impression, the dentist will capture a digital scan of your tooth and transfer the data to our CEREC® restoration milling technology.
The milling machine will fabricate your bespoke-made porcelain crown while you wait. Once it’s ready, we can fit it for you there and then.
Patients opting for metal-based crowns will be required to return to the practice two weeks later after it’s been made to have it fitted by a specialist laboratory.
On the day of your crown appointment, impressions will be taken of your prepared tooth.
Our dentists will then place the metal crown over your prepared tooth, checking it for a proper fit before permanently sealing it in place with a dental adhesive.
“I came to this dental practice to have 2 Cerec crowns and am very pleased with my treatment. From my first visit, I have been made to feel welcome by all the very friendly staff. The practice has a very relaxed atmosphere. Rahul and Marie always ensured that I was comfortable and catered for, even sitting in the waiting room while my crowns were being made. I even saw one of my crowns being milled in the machine before it was fitted. Rahul and Marie really make you feel relaxed and at ease. I felt as if I had known them for ages- I don’t remember ever laughing and having a bit of a joke whilst sitting in a dentist’s chair before!” Sian, RH18
