Restore, Protect, Shine with Dental Crown

The Role of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns serve as protective caps for damaged or decayed teeth. They provide the best functional benefits and improve the quality of your life. They are crucial for treating broken, fractured, or decayed teeth. Dental crowns not only protect teeth but also improve how they look. They’re used to treat big or broken fillings and are often used after a root canal. This helps maintain the good appearance of the tooth.

Beyond restoring smiles, crowns effectively replace severe cases of tooth decay to protect natural tooth structure. Choosing dental crowns allows your dentists to save your natural tooth and its appearance. This approach does not involve extractions and highlights the preservation of your real tooth enamel to provide a healthier and more lasting solution for your teeth.

How are Crowns placed?

Here’s what the crown placement looks like:

Thorough Examination

Our expert dentists begin by assessing your tooth’s condition to decide if a dental crown is suitable. If so then the dentists will take impressions and discuss the crown procedure with you to keep you informed about the whole procedure.

Perfect Design

In the design phase, our expert team thoroughly take your crown’s specifications, including size, shape, colour, and fit. This information is then sent to our dental lab where the final crown is made. During this time, you will wear a temporary crown for tooth protection.

Custom Creation

Using modern technology, the dental lab makes your new crown, to deliver exceptional restorations. Once crafted, the finished crown is returned to our dental practice for our dentist to assess its fit and style.

Right Placement

Upon satisfaction with the crown, our dentist prepares the natural teeth and exactly places the crown. Any necessary adjustments are made before attaching the crown to the right position. Our goal is to provide the best fit possible to make sure you enjoy the aesthetic and functional benefits of it.

Maintenance of Dental Crowns

Maintaining oral hygiene is vital for overall dental health. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are crucial components of a successful oral care routine. By following good oral hygiene practices, you can prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues. Consistent care leads to a healthy smile, promotes your well-being, and prevents potential complications in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental crown is a customised cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, and improve its appearance. It also covers the entire visible portion of the tooth.
Dental crowns are necessary for various reasons, like protecting weak teeth, restoring severely decayed teeth, covering dental implants, supporting dental bridges, and enhancing the appearance of misshapen or discoloured teeth.
Dental crowns can be crafted from various materials, such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, and a combination of materials. Each material has unique properties which cater to the specific needs and preferences of patients. For example, porcelain crowns are known for their natural appearance and metal crowns offer excellent durability.
The lifespan of dental crowns is based on multiple factors like materials used, oral hygiene, and daily wear. On average, dental crowns can last between 10 to 15 years or even longer with proper care.
Modern dental crowns are designed to closely mimic the natural look of teeth. In particular, porcelain and ceramic crowns offer an accurate match with surrounding teeth for a natural look. The crowns are customised in shape, size, and colour which makes them virtually unnoticeable from natural teeth.
The dental crown placement involves several steps. Firstly, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing any decay or damage. Impressions are then taken to create a custom-fit crown. While the permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed. Lastly, the permanent crown is bonded onto the tooth for a secure fit.
