You can restore your teeth perfectly after damage
caused by tooth decay, wear or trauma with our
exquisite porcelain dental crowns in Warwickshire.
“I had broken teeth and very
unsightly appearance to my teeth,
and it was affecting lots of things in my social life. Since I had the bridge work done,
everything has been a lot better, including my hobby.”
A crown, sometimes referred to as caps, fit over damaged teeth to protect the remains of the tooth structure, restore their original shape and size, and keep their functionality intact. The dental crown is designed to match the colour of your natural teeth and will closely resemble the natural tooth. Crowns are often recommended as after a root canal or filling to provide additional support to the tooth. This is a great treatment option for anyone who wants to restore their teeth without damaging the natural tooth and avoid extractions in the future.
In spite of their many benefits, it’s important to remember that a crown is not always a permanent solution and may need to be repaired or replaced over time. To find out more about our dental crowns treatments, contact our Warwickshire dental practice today at 01926 330606.

Getting a crown is not a painful experience. Thanks to our use of anaesthetic and sedation, most patients feel only mild discomfort. The benefits of getting a crown far outweigh this temporary discomfort.
You may need a dental crown for several reasons, including:
· Protecting a weak tooth (possibly from decay) from breaking or to keep the weak tooth together if parts of it are cracked.
· Restoring a broken tooth or a severely worn-down tooth.
· Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining.
· Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
· Covering a tooth that’s been treated with a root canal.
Porcelain dental crowns can be designed to closely match the natural colour of your teeth, which is why they’re a terrific option for protecting your front teeth. Harder-wearing metal crowns are sometimes preferred for the teeth at the back of the mouth.
Crowns can last for many years, but at some point they will need to be replaced. The lifespan of a dental crown depends on how well you look after it and how much wear-and-tear it experiences over time. Porcelain crowns or ceramic crowns may survive longer than those made from metal, but they are also more liable to break or chip.
Similar to your natural teeth, you need to maintain good dental hygiene to look after your dental crowns. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every evening. It’s also important to be careful about what you eat: chewing on ice or especially hard foods (e.g. hard candies) could cause breakage.
Yes, with a crown we can salvage the natural tooth by placing a protective cap over the damaged part to avoid any further damage. Crowns are durable and will provide strong support to broken teeth for the foreseeable future.
Fillings provide a simple and easy solution for
restoring your teeth after they have been worn down
by decay or trauma.
Fillings are designed to restore damaged teeth that have been subject to tooth decay, tooth wear or blunt force trauma. Cosmetic dental fillings refer to fillings that are bonded to the tooth structure and coloured to match the shade of your natural teeth. In addition to looking more natural, these types of fillings also require less tooth preparation and treatment than standard metal fillings. As a result, they are considered a less destructive form of restoration. This procedure can be completed in a single visit without any unnecessary waiting time.
If you’d like to learn more about our available fillings treatments, contact our Leamington Spa dental practice at 01926 330606 and book your first consultation.
If you’ve broken a filling, make an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. If we can fix or replace the filling sooner than later, we can reduce the likelihood of a bacterial infection or the breakage getting worse and more painful.
Dental fillings typically last around 10 years, although many restorations can stay intact for longer. This depends on various factors including the materials used and your eating habits. Amalgam fillings are exceptionally hard-wearing and may never need to be replaced, but many patients opt for the less durable white-coloured composite fillings instead.
If you have a cavity in your teeth, it’s likely you will need a dental filling. The warning signs for cavities include increased tooth sensitivity, dark spots on your tooth, and a sharp or throbbing pain in your mouth.
In short, no. The process is relatively quick and painless. At Andrew Lee Dental Practice, our dentists numb the area using a gel before injecting a local anesthetic. You may feel a slight sting at first but this is a standard reaction to anesthesia. If you have any concerns before the procedure, ask our team and they can make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
Dental bridges are artificial crowns used to replace
one or more missing teeth by attaching to the
Andrew Lee Dental Practice are strong believers in the restorative powers of dental bridges and always recommend the treatment to our patients as a solution for missing teeth. In addition to being affordable and effective, these artificial crowns are built to last thanks to bonded support from the healthy neighbouring teeth. If you’re missing one or more teeth, then dental bridges can fill these gaps with ease and bring a confident balance to your smile. The dental bridge typically consists of a false replacement tooth, known as a pontic, and two crowns, which make sure the artificial tooth is secured in place.
