Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns is included under Major Dental.

Dental Crowns is a service provided by a specialist dentist as part of our Major Dental cover. A crown is a ‘cap’ placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength or to improve its appearance. They can be temporary or permanent, and are usually made from materials such as stainless steel, porcelain, resin or ceramic.

Crowns, when cemented into place, encase the entire visible portion of a tooth. Depending on the technology your dentist uses, crowns may be produced in a single visit, or may require multiple visits.

You might need Dental Crowns if you...

  • Have a broken tooth that can be held together
  • Have a severely worn down tooth
  • Need to protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Need to support a tooth with a large filling
