dental crowns

Do you have a broken tooth? Unsightly teeth? Need a large filling replaced?

Then a dental crown might be for you!

A dental crown is a prosthetic restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant, it can restore a tooth back to its original size, shape, and colour.

Besides that, a crown surrounds the tooth and makes it strong again, so badly broken or decayed teeth can be strengthened with dental crowns.

Reasons to have a crown

  • You have dental erosion, broken or chipped teeth
  • Large filling needs replacing
  • Your tooth needs to have root canal treatment
  • You grind your teeth at night
  • To improve dental aesthetics
  • There’s decay present.

A crown can cover up a stained or unusually shaped tooth or close spaces between teeth and correct minor rotations and positions of the teeth.

Dental crowns can improve the general appearance, adding to patients self-confidence.

Why would I need a dental crown?
If you have a large restoration which needs replacing then a crown can restore the look and function of the tooth and provide extra strength.
Teeth that are stained, worn, broken, chipped or decayed can also benefit from a crown.
What does the procedure involve?
Having a crown will need 2 seperate appointments.
The first appointment – the tooth is shaped and prepared. Impressions are taken and the correct shade is decided. You will leave with a temporary crown and be asked to come back after 2 weeks.
The second appointment – the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown is cemented in place. The bite and shade will be checked and thats it! A new tooth for you to enjoy.
How long does a crown last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last up to 15 years (or even more).
The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown is to practice good oral hygiene. Also see your dentist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings and report any discomfort you may notice as soon as possible.
