Dental Crowns



What is a dental crown?

Commonly used on broken or weakened teeth, the finished cap comes in various materials and can replace any tooth. A dental crown is artificial cap fitted on a damaged tooth to give a natural appearance and protect the remaining tooth structure.

Porcelain and gold crowns are the strongest option, created from a gold thimble with a porcelain veneer. The inherent strength of the gold base ensures the finished product is long-lasting and ideal for use at the back of the mouth.

Dental Crown Procedure:

Once you have selected your material, your dentist will prepare the outer surface of the remaining tooth and take an impression. It will then send this to the lab where a technician will create a bespoke unit to your specifications. A fitting will then take place. At which point, a local anaesthetic will numb the area and prevent pain.

If well maintained, a crown should last between 20 and 30 years. However, this depends on the material used, the location of the treatment and the aftercare administered by the patient.

Dental Finance

0% APR for 12 months or 9.9% APR for 24 and 36 months. Using the calculator you can approximate the total monthly cost of your treatment. You can apply over the phone by ringing the clinic that you wish to attend.

Just about anyone over the age of 18. You don’t have to belong to a private dental plan. You don’t even have to be a regular visitor at Synergy Dental.

You can use the loan to pay for most dental work, but it’s particularly suited to more costly private treatments, such as dental implants, orthodontic, aesthetic, or cosmetic work.

If you’re not sure whether it’s right for your treatment, please ask your dentist.

Typically between £500 and £25,000 depending on the course of the treatment. This will be subject to an “on-the-spot” credit check.

Most patients’ applications are approved there and then, so you can go ahead and schedule treatment immediately.

Much like any other loan, you repay it in affordable monthly payments over an agreed term. These payments are collected by Direct Debit.

Once you’ve agreed on a course of treatment and a cost with your dentist, we’ll make the credit application on your behalf. As soon as the credit check is complete and the loan process, you’ll receive written confirmation from the credit provider. Simple as that!

We are working with one of the most respected credit providers in the business. Ask your dentist for details.

You can apply for an interest-free loan for each course of treatment, subject to the usual credit check.

For anyone considering using our interest-free loan facility to fund their private dental treatment, the benefits are clear.

  • You get the treatment you want, a treatment that will make you look and feel a million times better.
  • You get to spread the cost of that treatment over a period that suits you.
  • Because it’s interest-free, our 0% loan can be a much more affordable alternative to credit cards or bank loans. It’s easy to apply and simple to repay by Direct Debit. To discuss the benefits in more detail, speak to your dentist or one of the practice staff.
