Restore The Strength And Shape Of Your Tooth
A crown, sometimes known as a ‘cap’ is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore it’s function and appearance.
Crowns are prescribed as a part of a treatment to restore teeth that have:
- Undergone root canal treatment
- Severe tooth surface loss
- Poor aesthetic appearance
- To replace existing crowns with poor appearance
- To protect heavily restored teeth from breaking
- To restore broken down teeth and prevent further breakage
Before we begin your treatment we′ll talk you through your options of course as we offer a full range of cosmetic dental crowns. For instance, if you require a crown at the back of your mouth you may prefer to opt for a hardwearing, less expensive crown made from ultra-durable dental composite. Alternatively, if you need a crown towards the front of your mouth you may decide to choose a natural looking cosmetic tooth-coloured one. Whatever type of dental crown is right for you, you can be sure that you′ll be very pleased with the results.
Preparation time will vary depending on the condition of the damaged tooth. The tooth will be reshaped, to ensure that once the crown is fitted, it remains the same size and shape as the natural teeth. It may also need to be built up with a filling first. A local anaesthetic is usually given prior to preparation, to avoid any discomfort. After preparation, an impression is taken of the tooth to be crowned and nearby teeth, using a soft mouldable material. This impression is given to a dental technician, who uses it to build your crown to the exact size and shape required. This will ensure that the crown fits comfortably. When using porcelain crowns, the colour will also be matched to the natural teeth.
The crown can last for many years if good oral hygiene is maintained, depending on the condition of the original tooth.
