A dental crown (which is also sometimes known as a dental cap) is an artificial tooth restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong once again, and giving it the shape, colour and appearance of your natural tooth.
Dental crowns may be used in a variety of situations:
A crown is usually bonded into place with a special dental cement or screwed into place over an implant post.
The usual way we make a crown is by using a dental impression and/or a scan of your existing tooth. We then create a crown with the help of a team of skilled experts working under high-tech laboratory conditions. It usually takes two weeks to complete your finished crown. It is a very detailed procedure which also involves firing the crown at high temperatures in a special kiln to provide its longevity and durability.
We also offer you the option of a temporary crown while your new crown is being created, so that you never have to feel as though you have a broken tooth on show when you smile.
Our dental crowns at Dental Solutions are mostly manufactured using very hard-wearing ceramic materials. We feel that using this material offers the most attractive restoration of your original tooth. Our experienced team of dentists and laboratory technicians ensure that the crown matches your surrounding teeth perfectly to give you a natural smile.
“I am the ultimate nervous patient. It all stemmed from when I was a little girl. However, my son was getting married and I knew that I wanted to have a lovely smile for the photographs – I couldn’t bear to smile with my teeth as they were. So I plucked up the courage and came to see Gavin to see what he could do for me. Gavin recommended a course of treatment which included some dental crowns on my upper teeth in order that my smile would look lovely on my son’s big day. Gavin was amazing – I can honestly say that I experienced no pain whatsoever.”
“In just 3 months from start to finish Gavin transformed my smile with four crowns – nothing was too much trouble for his team to match the existing shades of my teeth to give me the natural smile that I wanted. I’m delighted that I had the work done and my smile has now changed completely – I smile properly rather than with my lips closed together. I also now have my confidence back which is just fantastic.”
