How are Old Crowns Replaced?

Modern crowns are light, comfortable and incredibly natural looking and if you need a replacement crown or you have a damaged or broken tooth, you’ve come to the right place. We offer high quality replacement and new crowns to restore teeth effortlessly.

About crowns

Dental crowns are restorations called into action when the visible part of the tooth is damaged or decayed. You may need a crown if your tooth has been severely damaged in an accident or sports injury or if your tooth is no longer strong enough to support a large filling. We may also recommend crown treatment when the tooth is infected and the infection has reached the pulp tissue, which contains the nerves and blood vessels. This is usually carried out following root canal treatment.

Modern crowns are strong and hard-wearing, but they don’t last forever and they will eventually need replacing. If you have a damaged or old crown and you need a sparkling new replacement, we will happily do this for you.

Replacement crowns

When you have a crown replaced, the first thing to do is to remove the existing crown, clean the tooth and prepare it ready for the new crown. Before the new crown is fitted, an impression of your tooth is created once the tooth structure has been shaped. This impression is then sent away and when your new crown is ready, we will fit it. Usually, we fit a temporary crown to bridge the gap, which is most commonly there for around two weeks.

We are proud to offer the finest quality porcelain crowns to beautify your smile and strengthen damaged teeth. Porcelain has a stunning radiant sheen and it matches the shade of the tooth seamlessly.

How long will my crown last?

Every case is different and some crowns will last longer than others depending on the type of material used, the quality of the material and how well you look after your tooth. Typically, crowns should last around five years and we will check your crowns and any other restorative work every time you have a routine check-up.
