Bath gets the royal Porcelain Crown treatment

2904387_blogWe use the latest high quality materials to produce natural looking, durable crowns, which will enhance your smile and strengthen your teeth. Crowns are a type of restoration, which are used to make the teeth stronger following an accident or injury or damage caused by decay. Crowns are also sometimes known as caps because they sit over the top of the tooth. Our porcelain crowns look like healthy natural teeth and it is not possible to distinguish between the crown and the natural tooth. As well as making the tooth stronger and helping to reduce the risk of further damage, crowns can also enhance the look of your smile. If you have extensive decay, a broken tooth or an oral infection, you may benefit from a new crown. Crowns are also commonly used after dental implant treatment, bridge work and root canal therapy. Our crowns are custom-made for each individual by highly trained dental technicians; the crown is made based on an impression of the tooth and this means that it will fit perfectly. Before a crown is placed, the tooth is prepared to remove the decayed tissue; this helps to prevent infection from spreading. Once the crown has been made, it is then placed over the top of the tooth and fixed in position using dental adhesive.
