A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and to improve its appearance.


A crown can restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down. It can hold together parts of a cracked tooth or cover misshaped/discoloured teeth. Frequently we will recommend a crown if you have required a root canal treatment as it can be the best way to protect the tooth.

The crown will look just like the original tooth which has been damaged, and we do this by taking an impression and sending it to the laboratory to be made. In high demanding cases we may send you to our Technician so that he can match the exact shade and shape of your teeth. When you come back to the Practice to have it fitted we cement the crown in place and make sure the fit and shade are perfect and the bite just right.

At Penryn Dental Practice we are trained to the highest standards at preparing and fitting crowns and work very closely with local Technicians to ensure our Patients get the individual attention that high quality crowns require.


I have been registered with several practices over the years and I would say that this is by far the best.

Very very happy. I’m a nervous dental patient, but Donal was very reassuring. I actually was prompted to have treatment I’d previously avoided as I felt I was in “safe hands”.


So pleased with the practice. Donal is amazing, so kind and great with the kids he really put you at ease.

This is a wonderful practice with a calm professional atmosphere-well worth the long journey to Cornwall for treatment with confidence.

I consider  the hygienist  to be the best hygienist who has treated me. She was very professional and took great care in getting the best outcome  My sister who was visiting from the USA required an emergency appointment and was seen promptly. She was very impressed with not only the standard of care but also the practice environment in comparison to her experience in the USA. She was surprised also at the low cost of her treatment.
