About dental crowns
Dental crowns, sometimes known as caps, are restorations that are used to strengthen teeth that have been weakened by injury, decay or trauma. With a crown, we are able to build up the tooth and restore its function, reducing the risk of infection and crumbling and enabling you to keep your tooth. Crowns are placed over the top of the tooth and they can be made from various materials such as porcelain, which gives a lovely natural looking finish.
Crowns are designed for strength and durability as well as a aesthetics and they should last for up to ten years. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene, as although it’s not possible for the porcelain to decay, the area of the tooth that joins the crown can become infected.
We usually carry out crown treatment over a period of two weeks with two separate treatment sessions. During the first session, we will prepare the tooth and create an impression to be used by dental technicians to create your custom-made crown. Preparing the tooth involves removing the decayed tissue, cleaning the tooth thoroughly and shaping it.
Once the new crown is ready, the second session can take place. This is usually around 14 days later. The crown is placed over the tooth and then secured using adhesive. We will check that it fits perfectly and then you will be free to go and enjoy your new healthy tooth!
