CROWNS

Crowns are dental restorations which are placed over existing teeth to strengthen and protect them from further damage. Sometimes known as caps because of how they sit on top of teeth, crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including precious metals, ceramic materials, porcelain and metal alloys fused with porcelain.

Why Would I Need A Crown?

If you have suffered damage or decay to a tooth you may need the assistance of a dental crown. Other reasons for needing a crown include:

The Procedure

Initially, the tooth will be cleaned thoroughly and any decay or damaged tissue removed. The tooth is then prepared for the new crown, which is when an instrument known as a burr is used to reshape the tooth to allow a stable platform for the crown to sit on. Once the tooth is ready an impression will be taken and sent to the laboratory, in order to ensure the new restoration is custom-made and bespoke.
During fabrication of the new crown a temporary crown can be fitted. When the crown is ready and returned, it will be fitted into place using dental cement. The crown will be shaped and coloured to match the natural teeth.

How Long Do Crowns Last?

Crowns are strong and durable but they do not last forever. It is important to look after the crown and maintain a good oral hygiene routine. A good quality crown will last up to 15 years, but only if it is maintained properly.
