We are experienced dentists in making dental crowns in London to recover your teeth from decayed, damaged or injured tooth, dental crowns look great and last for a very long time.
A crown is custom made precision cemented over the implant or tooth to cover it completely. Traditionally, crowns have been described as metal or ceramic that is fused to the metal. The latest technology in dentistry uses materials like Zirconium that is extremely strong and durable, which eliminates the need for a metal sub-structure for the crown. These crowns are the highest standard in offering you the ultimate aesthetic result.
A crown is used to cover or “cap” a damaged tooth completely. Other than strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown may be used to improve its shape, alignment or appearance. A crown can even be placed on the top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for proper functioning. Ceramic or porcelain crowns can be matched with the colour of natural teeth. Other materials include metal alloys, acrylic, ceramic and gold. These alloys are stronger than porcelain and suggested for the back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used as it is durable and attractive.
Crowns can be used for the following reasons:
All ceramic crowns do not have grey metal inside. They are usually used for your visible front teeth. If the gum recedes over time, then there won’t be any grey metal margin on show. At Museum Dental suites, we provide ceramic crowns in London.
These crowns consist of a metal core on the inside and porcelain bonded to the outside. However, the thin porcelain layer may fracture more easily than other crowns. Metal Ceramic crowns can be used on the back teeth.
These crowns are the strongest and used for the back teeth. Gold crowns need minimal tooth reduction.
Porcelain bonded crowns are made from a metal layer beneath porcelain layered over the metal. They are mainly used for the anterior and posterior teeth, however crowns made from the combination of metal fused to porcelain, may start showing dark shadow on the margin closest to the gum over time.
When placing a crown, your dentist will start by removing a damaged or decayed tooth. An impression of the tooth is taken and then sent to the laboratory to be manufactured. Finally, a temporary filling will be put in its place.
During following visit to your dentist, the temporary filling gets removed and the permanent crown is fixed into place with resin cement in order to bond the dental crown to your tooth. The dentist makes slight adjustments to ensure that it fits properly and does not affect the way you bite or chew.
Our dentists charge from £895 for porcelain bonded crown, from £945 for all ceramic crown and the full gold crowns starts from £ 900 only.

Highly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.
I have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.
My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.
I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.
Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!
Firstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.
I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.
The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!
Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
After lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
