If one of your teeth is damaged, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to address the situation. A crown is a small, tooth-shaped cap that fits over your tooth. It can hide a discolored or misshapen tooth or even a tooth implant. A crown can also protect or restore a broken, worn-down, or damaged tooth. A crown can hold a dental bridge in place, too.
You have options when it comes to choosing the type of crown you receive. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, including: metal, resin, ceramic, porcelain, a combination of porcelain and metal that’s often called porcelain-fused-to-metal.
A popular choice is the CEREC crown, which is often made out of a very strong ceramic and is designed, created, and installed using computer-assisted technology. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. You typically get one of these crowns as part of a same-day procedure that will get you in and out of the dentist’s chair in one afternoon.

The practice now has 107 Google reviews with a near perfect score.
One patient review reads ‘I broke a crown while in quarantine in Auckland and had a small window of time to get it fixed before heading to the Bay of Islands. After researching and reading reviews I felt quite comfortable with this dentistry and made an appointment. Every step of the way, the process went smoothly from the check-in at the front desk to the making of a new crown in less than an hour. Dave was superb, explaining everything he was about to do and gave me a full review of what I should do for ongoing maintenance of my teeth. Would highly recommend to anyone whether for a crown or any other treatment and I don’t make recommendations lightly.’
They have now added Invisalign orthodontics for teeth straightening with clear aligners and invisible braces to their services as well as seen here https://naturalsmile.nz/dentist-st-heliers/invisalign-go-orthodontics-mission-bay-auckland/
