Crowns


Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been damaged, are badly broken or heavily filled, in order to restore their appearance or strength. They in turn reduce the risk of heavily decayed teeth breaking. To make a crown, the existing tooth is shaped and an impression is taken. The crown is then made by a dental technician, who is responsible for matching the shade and shape of your natural tooth. Crowns are made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. Our dentists recommend porcelain crowns for the most natural looking and pleasing results. Recent advances with porcelains means that modern crowns can provide excellent aesthetics with long term strength. The teeth are prepared by reducing them in size to make space for the crown. An impression is sent to the laboratory. A temporary crown is made and fitted. At a further appointment the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown is tried in and cemented. The sequence is described below:
