BROKEN OR DAMAGED TOOTH?

CROWNS

If you have a broken, damaged or weak tooth a crown can be placed over it to enhance and restore its shape, size, appearance and strength. Most crowns are made from either metal, ceramic or a combination of both.

PUTTING YOUR CROWN IN PLACE

Your dentist will prepare the area for the crown by taking impressions of your teeth to create a good “bite” and by matching the colour of the surrounding teeth. A dental technician will then create your custom-made crown, which normally takes about 2 weeks, before we’ll ask you to return to have it bonded permanently into place.

WHY DO I NEED A CROWN?

Having a damaged or broken tooth can affect your life in many ways. It can be unsightly, painful and make it vulnerable to bacteria or further damage. By putting a crown in place, we can restore your tooth’s strength, size and appearance.

Crowns can also be used to replace teeth that are:
Affected by a root canal
Worn down
Discoloured or have very large filings
Misshapen


We may also use a crown in other treatments such as holding a denture in place.


WHAT WILL MY CROWN BE MADE OF?

Traditionally, many crowns have been made of gold. These crowns are hard-wearing and fit well, causing less irritation to the gums, but some people may not be keen on the metal appearance.

We also offer tooth-coloured crowns made from porcelain or ceramic which offer a more natural look and feel and is bonded to the natural tooth with an incredibly strong adhesive.


WILL IT BE HARD TO CARE FOR?

Taking care of a crown is as straightforward as looking after your natural teeth. Simply brushing and flossing regularly like a normal tooth will keep it clean and the gums surrounding it healthy. Occasionally some crowns may need a slight adjustment but otherwise it should look and feel natural and strong.
