EXPERTLY INSTALLED DENTAL CROWNS
A crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement. Crowns can be used for several reasons:
– As a protective cover for badly decayed teeth or fractured teeth
– As a permanent restoration for teeth with large fillings
– To correct minor problems in natural teeth like spacing and irregular shape or severe discolouration
No matter what your reason for choosing to get your teeth crowned, Focus Dental Clinic can offer a premium service, using skilled dentistry and the latest technology to give you a reason to smile.
Testimonials & Reviews
Always a pleasant welcome and treatment from the staff at a very modern surgery and waiting area with state of the art equipment!
My wife and I have been (and remain) patients of Dr Chahal for some years. We are happy to state that we are very pleased with the treatments we have received – an impressive combination of courtesy, clarity and especially, professional expertise.
Seeing the same dentist each time you attend for your check-ups has been greatly reassuring. At previous Dentists, I would see someone different each time, and I never really knew if I was getting the care I needed or wanted. I am very happy with Dr Chahal’s kind, gentle manner and his ability to put me at ease. I know I am in great hands at Focus Dental Clinic!
I have been in the care of Dr Chahal since 2000. He has always gone to great lengths to explain any treatments I have required in terms I understand and also considers me, the patient, as an individual – not just another tooth! I would not hesitate to recommend him – in fact, I now live in Germany, but regularly visit family back in the UK, and so I always book my checkups to coincide with these visits.
We have both been patients at the Focus Dental Clinic for some time and feel that we have given the benefit of the very best in modern dental techniques and technology. This is very important of course, but also, the environment is fresh and welcoming and everyone takes great care to ensure we are comfortable and happy with our treatments. We are able to relax, knowing hat Focus will do the very best to keep our teeth in optimum health.
We have been private dental patients of Mr.Chahal for a number of years and from our own experience, are most pleased to testify as to the friendly and professional manner in which he has acted for us both. His work has included advanced dental techniques, including implant surgery and has always been carried out with great competence and to the highest standards, which has been greatly reassuring. We wouldn’t hesitate to wish him every success in his new venture at Focus Dental.
I have been a patient of Dr Van Leeuwen for several years now and have always been very satisfied with her friendly, helpful and professional manner. I feel confident in her capability and treatment of me. She also treats Miss Winifred Lewis, with whom I live, who is in full agreement with my comments.
As a very nervous patient who will do anything to get out of going to the dentist, from the time I phoned Focus Dental Clinic to the time I left after my appointment, I was put at ease by Miss Van Leeuwen and given the control to stop and start the treatment I was having at any time, without being made to feel I was being a nuisance. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice!
Having been a patient of Mr Chahal for over 10 years I am most impressed by the excellence of the treatments he has provided on every occasion. These treatments have ranged from the routine, such as check-ups, to the complex including full surgical insertion of implants. No matter whether routine or complex, Mr Chahal has always been meticulous in taking un-hurried time to explain and discuss procedures and options, giving a real feeling of personal treatment, which compliments the excellence of his professional work.
I have been hugely impressed with the professionalism of the dentists and the state of the art equipment at Focus Dental Clinic. I recently had a Cerec restoration done by Dr Van Leeuwen – basically one of my own teeth being rebuilt using the latest technology. The whole process was achieved in one visit and I have to say it was the best dental experience I have had!”
“I had put up with my dentures for years until I was recommended to Mr Chahal. Focus Dental explained all my options openly and fully. We decided on dental implants, and within 3 months I had exactly what I wanted no denture! Being able to eat confidently out in restaurants with out having to worry about my denture moving really has given me a new lease of life. I am most grateful to him and his team – Thank you.
Focus Dental Clinic provide Excellent treatment and rapid response for emergencies.”

HOW FOCUS DENTAL CLINIC WILL FIT YOUR CROWNS
At Focus Dental Clinic we take care to ensure that crowns are right for you, and that they are fitted efficiently to avoid any potential problems in the future. Firstly, a thorough clinical examination is conducted with radiographs by your expert dentist. The suitability for crowns is assessed and any preparatory work is carried out. Your dentist will also be able to offer professional advice on material choices, treatment sequence and any other concerns you may have.
At the second appointment, the teeth to be crowned are prepared. This involves reduction of the tooth size (usually under local anaesthesia) followed by making an impression or mould of the prepared tooth. This trimming of the tooth is required to create space for the crown to be fitted in your mouth. The mould taken is then sent to a laboratory where skilled technicians will fabricate the crown. In the meantime, a temporary crown is made and fitted onto the trimmed tooth.
At the third appointment, the temporary crown is removed and the tooth surfaces cleaned. The completed crown is tried on the tooth for fit, how it harmonises with your bite, and to ensure it achieves your desired appearance. Finally, the crown is cemented onto the prepared tooth with dental cement.
EFFECTIVE CROWNS FOR YOUR TEETH
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials such as plastic, ceramic or metal alloys. A combination of metal and ceramic is also possible to maximise strength and simulate the appearance of natural teeth, which gives a more authentic aesthetic.
Dental crown aftercare and maintenance
Crowns are made of inert materials that do not deteriorate over time. However, the underlying tooth is still prone to decay and gum disease and must be cared for to avoid these problems.
Ceramic on the surface of your crown may chip or fracture, so patients should avoid chewing excessively-hard substances like ice or bones. Daily brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining good oral health as well as keeping the crown trouble-free. The most vulnerable portion of the crown is the margin or the junction between tooth and crown, which should be treated with care. Regular check-ups at our Essex clinic will enable your dentist to detect any problems with your crown and recommend necessary treatment.
