A crown (sometimes known as a cap) is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a tooth which has been specially prepared to accommodate it. A crown restores the tooth’s shape, strength and function (bite) whilst protecting the remaining tooth from further damage/decay.
Crowns can also be used to ‘anchor’ bridges in place (See Dental Bridges)
Crowns are used to restore the shape, appearance and functionality of teeth that have either been damaged by trauma or wear and tear or weakened by decay.
Crowns are an ideal solution to:
Most crowns are ‘bonded’ crowns comprising porcelain bonded to either a precious or non-precious metal base.
Porcelain Crowns are made entirely out of porcelain and although not as strong as bonded crowns are an ideal replacement to teeth as they look natural.
All-ceramic Crowns are a modern metal free material that has the strength of a bonded crown and the natural appearance of a porcelain crown and are therefore suitable for use in all areas of the mouth.
Glass Crowns are very natural in appearance and are used in all areas of the mouth.
Gold-alloy Crowns are a very hard-wearing restoration and are silver or gold in colour.
Your examination will identify whether you require a crown. During a following appointment your dentist will ‘prepare’ the tooth to accommodate the crown.
We will then take an impression (mould) of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth, including teeth it comes into contact with, on the opposite arch to ensure the bite is correct.
The impression is then sent to our technician who will use it as a guide to manufacture a crown that will restore the look and functionality of the tooth.
The crown takes an average of 2 weeks to manufacture once it is ready we will invite you back to have it fitted.
