Porcelain Crowns

100% Porcelain Crowns. Quite simply, they are the most beautiful and faithful imitations of natural teeth.

Crowns that are indistinguishable from real teeth – pure porcelain layered lovingly by our Master Ceramist to mimic natural enamel’s colour translucency and fluorescence.

And these crowns fit as perfectly as they appear: the core structure is computer milled for pinpoint accuracy before being hand finished under a microscope by our Master Ceramist, Stephen Fennell, who says:

  • Historically porcelain crowns had a metal substructure to be strong enough to last in the mouth.
  • This metal substructure blocked natural light transmission through the tooth, often leaving the crown with a rather dead appearance.
  • Today, with the use of enormously strong ceramic substructures we can make metal-free, all-porcelain crowns that have a vitality that approaches natural teeth.

Having porcelain crowns means No More:

  • black lines at the top of the crowns
  • opaque, flat, dead-looking teeth that stand out like sore thumbs
  • misshapen “teeth” with big black triangles on either side
  • swollen gums around in-precise crowns that never fitted properly

Beauty Strength and Function – with these crowns you really can have your cake and eat it!

Our Approach to Dental Crowns

On your first visit, for the preparation of the tooth, we will take impressions, discuss and show you the shading to match the existing teeth. 

We look to preserve as much of the original tooth as possible. If veneers, inlays or white fillings are an option for you, then we will offer those to consider as a first step. However, crowns are often wanted to improve the appearance of the teeth, and if crowns are the best course of action, after the impressions we will prepare the tooth.

Zirconia is the strongest Ceramic around (they clad the space shuttle in it to prevent it from burning up on re-entry). The latest Zirconia has been re-engineered to make light pass through it like natural enamel while masking the discolouration of the old tooth structure beneath. Beauty and Strength.

For most of our tooth crowns, we use the latest Ceramic Zirconia material.

Whilst the permanent crown is being made by the cosmetic lab, we will give you a temporary crown.

When you come back to the practice, the crown is closely fitted onto the prepared tooth and is permanently bonded for strength.

Our dental implant systems use these high-quality cosmetic crowns, and our dentists are experienced in achieving the ideal shape and shading. All our treatment here at winning smiles is highly cosmetic in nature.

The long-term appearance is as important to us as the longevity of the tooth function.

Jo: Case Study

Jo just hated her front teeth. The “cosmetic crowns” that she had had previously due to a condition that affected the enamel on her teeth made her teeth look crooked and had black lines showing near her gums.

Jo didn’t feel able to smile properly and tended to smile with her lips tightly pursed.

It took just two appointments to achieve aesthetic harmony again for Jo: she was thrilled and found her true smile in no time: the new all porcelain crowns not only looked natural, but we were also able to straighten the teeth and restore her smile symmetry again.

The Free Consultation

Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.

And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.

We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

What they say about us

Rob – Rebuilding my Smile

After two weeks with my fab new smile, I feel inspired to share my experience.

From my first meeting and consultation with Andrew Fennell, I felt comfortrouble and at ease, a first for me I’m afraid, previous dentists must have studied at Dewhurst I think, nuff said.

I had a series of missing, loose and broken crowns, and my smile had disappeared and distorted over time. Andrew offered different options to rebuild the smile, we worked out the most cost effective way in my case would be a bridge, great, compared with dentures I was offered everywhere else this was fantastic and I was very happy to start treatment.

Winning Smiles attitude to pain management must be commended! That for me was a very big fear and what kept me away from a dentist for too long. The painless injection system used by Andrew was the most reassuring experience possible, from then on I was happy to go through hours of work and even have a laugh during treatment at times, amazing. Other patients reading this will know what I mean when I talk about the synergy between Andrew and his nurses during treatment, it’s almost like going to a gig with the level of intuition and communication on display, and has changed my mind about dentists forever (well some anyway).

So having also seen Andrew blow a mean blues harmonica, I can understand this better!

The skill and communication on display between Andrew, and the entire team are what makes Winning Smiles brilliant. The atmosphere, the statue, the smiles on the faces of other waiting clients, just make the whole experience really enjoyable.

My smile recommends Winning Smiles to everybody I meet. Thank you all and see you soon no doubt for hygienist and other delights. :)

John – A Perfectionists Smile

Before finding Winning Smiles, I already had what many people considered to be a good dentist in Greenwich, however I wasn’t happy with the level of service they gave me and that put me off going at all. Upon developing a problem with a front crown, I decided to seek out a better option and after reading positive reviews I booked in for a consultation.

I was surprised by Andrew’s level of knowledge and his keenness to understand what I was looking for, he gave me time to ask more in-depth questions until I was satisfied that I was in the right place. I’d also like to mention that the same courteous and knowledgeable traits are shared by the whole team.

I’m a perfectionist at heart and because I am sensitive about my front teeth, I went to the extent of creating digitally altered pictures of what I wanted them to look like, a first for Andrew I think and he was more than happy to work towards my idea. He guided me on what would look natural and we agreed upon what would be done.

The results are fantastic, and because of proper procedures being used and the level of attention that I was afforded, I firmly believe that I wouldn’t have gotten a better result anywhere else.

Many thanks to everyone,
