Dental Crowns are Improving Smiles Again and Again

An effective cosmetic dental treatment is ‘crowning,’ which can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance. The natural tooth is contoured slightly by your dentist, so the crown can fit snugly on top. All our crowns are crafted by highly skilled technicians and are therefore the same colour and shape as your existing teeth. Crowns are a type of restoration used to strengthen teeth that have been damaged as a result of an injury, accident or decay and are sometimes known as caps because they fit over the top of the existing tooth. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, including precious metals, metal alloys and ceramic materials. Many people prefer to have ceramic crowns because they blend in with the natural colour of their teeth and are therefore invisible when you smile. Porcelain crowns are a popular choice because they are durable and strong, as well as aesthetically pleasing. The procedure to fit a crown involves two stages. The first stage is to prepare the tooth for crowning and the second stage is to fit the crown. The tooth is prepared using an instrument called a burr, which your dentist will use to remove the decayed tissue and clean the tooth thoroughly before shaping the tooth. Once the tooth is ready, an impression will be created and sent to the laboratory so that a custom-made crown can be manufactured. When the crown has been sent back, it will be fitted and fixed in place once you and your dentist are happy. Crowns are a very effective treatment for teeth that are damaged and decayed but it is important to look after the tooth after a crowing procedure. You should tend to your crown like a normal tooth and take care to stick to a good daily oral hygiene routine, which should include brushing the teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time and flossing. Crowns do not last forever but they should last for several years if they are well looked-after.
