Crowns Improving your appearance

A crown is looks like a normal healthy tooth, but it fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth. This makes it extremely strong, looking and feeling like your natural teeth.

We usually fit porcelain crowns  because they are look much more natural, in fact most people would never notice the difference between a porcelain crown and a normal tooth. looked after correctly crowns can last you a lifetime.

Benefits of having Crowns

  • Improvement of the colour and shape of the tooth.
  • They are ideal for heavily broken or filled teeth.
  • Crowns  last longer than any other type of restoration with a good hygiene regime.

How is the Crown Fitted?

When you are happy with the fit and the look of the your new crown, it will be held in place with dental cement or adhesive. This cement forms a seal to hold the crown in place. It will normally stay in place for years to come.

Does it hurt to have a tooth prepared for a crown?

No. We will give you a local anaesthetic and the preparation work we do should feel no different from a filling. Sometimes if the tooth in question doesn’t have a nerve and the post of the crown is being prepared, then you may not need a local anaesthetic.

Will the crown be noticeable?

The crown will look like your other teeth. We’ll match it as closely as we can. The shade of your surrounding teeth will be recorded. This makes sure that the colour looks the same and matches those of your surrounding teeth.

How do I care for my crown?

As with all dental issues good hygiene is so important. So just as with your natural teeth keep the crown clean. The crown itself won’t decay, but decay can happen where the edge of the crown joins the holding tooth. As always brush last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste. Clean in between your teeth with interdental brushes or floss.

How long will a crown last?

Effectively as with your natural teeth the better you look after it the longer it will last. If you keep up a good dental hygiene regime your crown should last for many years even a lifetime. Ask the team about how to brush properly.
