Dental Crowns

A tooth is entirely covered by a dental crown, also known as a cap, which strengthens it and returns its usual size, shape, and colour. Teeth that have cracked or been weakened by decay or a very big filling are best restored with crowns.

You could require a dental crown to:

Restore a fractured or worn tooth by covering a malformed or discoloured teeth.

Wrap a tooth with a substantial filling.

firmly fix a dental bridge.

A dental implant cover.

Cover a tooth that has had a root canal.

What varieties of dental crowns are available?

The most common material used to make crowns is porcelain that has been joined to precious or non-precious elements. Porcelain is placed in layers over a base made of precious or non-precious metal.

At our Clinic, you can choose from a variety of materials, such as:

Crowns constructed completely of porcelain are less durable than bonded crowns but can look quite natural. They are most frequently put on front teeth because of their aesthetic appeal.

What is the procedure for bonding composite teeth?

All-ceramic crowns: This contemporary material contains no metal. It can produce a porcelain-like look and the robustness of a bonded crown. Because of this, it can be used in all parts of the mouth.

Full crowns made of ultra-precious gold, one of the oldest filling materials. It is now strengthened by the addition of other metals, making it an extremely durable restoration. The colouring of these crowns is gold.

How much time does fitting a dental crown require?

It often requires two visits to one of our clinics after your initial consultation in order to properly fit the crown. The dentist will take an impression (mould) of the prepared tooth, one of the other jaws, and maybe another to mark the way you bite together after shaping the tooth to the right form for the crown. A dental technician will then get the impressions, along with information on the shadings to be used and other necessary specifics for creating the crown. After that, we will place a temporary crown in place of the permanent one while you wait for one to two weeks for the crown to be made.
