Even when broken or damaged, the last thing we want to do is remove teeth which could be repaired and preserved.
A dental crown is just one of the methods we can use to achieve this.
It's a protective cap which sits over the broken tooth to restore function and prevent further damage. Once the crown is installed permanently by our expert team, the repaired tooth looks and acts just like a natural one.
Crowns come in a wide range of materials, including tooth-coloured porcelain or resin and hard-wearing metal amalgam. And using CEREC computer-aided design technology, the entire process can now be completed in a single visit to our clinic without the need for a temporary cap.

Using CEREC digital 3D imaging and production, we can install crowns in just one day. Here’s what you can expect when opting for treatment with Buckle Advanced Dental Care - the Wirral’s leading restorative and cosmetic dentistry provider.
We begin with a detailed assessment of your overall health to find out if you are a suitable candidate for our same-day crown procedure.
We’ll also talk with you about some of the materials on offer and begin designing a completely personalised treatment plan based on your needs.
Our team will make the necessary preparations to your tooth, removing a small amount of its natural structure to ensure an accurate, long-lasting fit.
Our team uses a hi-tech scanner to take detailed images of the damaged tooth. We'll send these to our in-house laboratory for fabrication using a hard-wearing tooth-coloured material - usually porcelain or resin.
Our talented technicians will produce your restorative crown on the same day using our in-house milling machine. After a short wait, Dr Buckle and the team will place the restoration and bond it securely in place before polishing to a natural finish.
Clive’s front teeth made him feel embarrassed to smile. When he approached us to do something about it on a limited budget, we began by using digital smile design to show Clive how his new smile would look. He loved the results and we went ahead with producing a temporary prototype to make sure Clive was 100% happy. We repaired Clive’s back teeth and opened his bite to make way for his new composites. What a result!
David wanted us to restore some previous orthodontic work received elsewhere. He also had misshapen and missing teeth. We started David’s treatment with fixed braces before replacing the missing teeth with implants and restoring those which were broken. David’s orthodontic treatment was complex and lengthy - but he eventually got just the result he wanted.
Ian transformed my smile 15 years ago and my teeth look as fantastic now as they did then. Dr Buckle gave me back my confidence. With the excellent hygiene programme at the practice and regular check ups, I haven’t had a problem in all this time. Thank you Dr Buckle!
Gordon’s teeth were constantly chipping and breaking, and he wanted a budget-friendly solution. Our first job was to find out why Gordon’s teeth were so prone to wear, before finding a solution to restore both form and function using Smile Trial digital smile design technology. We also provided Gordon with a trial restoration to wear to make sure he was over the moon with the final thing.
Mark’s was finding it difficult to eat. He also felt self-conscious about his smile. And to make things even worse, his old crowns were beginning to fail. We used Smile Trial and digital planning to show Mark his new smile before starting treatment with crowns to restore his upper teeth and implants to replace his more decayed lower teeth. Mark loves the results and is now a self-confessed born-again brusher.
Gareth lost his front teeth in an accident. His remaining teeth were bighted by old fillings and general wear. He wanted to replace the missing teeth and improve the appearance of those remaining. Dr Buckle’s solution was beautiful implanted teeth accompanied by a cosmetic restoration for a radical improvement in both form and function.
Unhappy with his discoloured and crooked teeth, Andrew came to us seeking a perfect straight white smile. Following some orthodontic treatment to position his teeth perfectly we restored them handcrafted porcelain crowns and veneers. Since having the treatment, Andrew says his confidence has gone through the roof!
Dr Buckle and his team haven’t just given me my smile back, they have given me a massive boost in confidence. Smiling for photographs now is a pleasure. I used to smile with my mouth closed but now I have this biggest smile on the photo.
Sandra’s teeth were breaking down badly and she also had problems with her bite that made it difficult to chew. She had visited various dentists and a dental hospital, but no one could provide the help she needed. That was until she visited Dr Buckle, who restored Sandra’s smile with implants, crowns and composites for spectacular results.
Amy had an inherited condition which caused misshapen, misaligned teeth and had been undergoing orthodontics for 12 years without success. Amy disliked the effect her teeth had on her overall appearance, and she also had trouble breathing properly, which made it difficult to sleep. Orthognathic surgery was necessary to correct these before Dr Buckle improved Amy’s smile with orthodontics. The result is a dramatic change for Amy, with an improved facial contour and no more trouble sleeping.
Richard’s worn and broken teeth made him feel self-conscious. We determined the cause of Richard’s problems to be a poor bite and issues with his jaw joint. Dr Buckle corrected these before restoring Richard’s smile. The results are just as amazing more than a decade on.
Eve had been told surgery was the only way to correct her overbite. But with a little careful planning, Dr Buckle was able to solve the issue using fixed brace treatment. It took just ten months to achieve this amazing result for Eve.
As someone who's a bit of a wimp when it comes to needles and drills, I was pleased to discover that this is the first dental surgery I've been to where the treatment genuinely doesn't hurt - a testament to the skill and care provided by the staff. Treatment - fillings x 2, some reconstructive/aesthetic work and several hygiene appointments.
I have nothing but good things to say about the treatment I have recieved at Buckle Advanced Dental Care over the last year. Dr. Buckle and the rest of the team are caring, knowledgable and always take the time to ensure I understand whats happening with my teeth, which really puts me at ease. Thank you!
I would give 10 stars if I could.
