A dental crown is used to cover the outer surface or “cap” of a damaged tooth and can also be placed on dental implants when replacing missing teeth.
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of different types of materials depending on the main requirement. This can vary from requiring strength to aesthetics or a combination of both. We will help you to decide on the type of crown best suited to your clinical situation. Most crowns can be matched very well with the colour of your natural teeth.
Once in bonded in place, the final colour of the crown is stable and will not change. In view of this many patients consider it worthwhile to have tooth whitening carried out to enhance their overall smile prior to the selection of the crowns final colour.
Dental crowns can be used in a number of situations including:
- To improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth
- Replacing a large filling on a rotten tooth
- To fix to a dental implant
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking and fracturing
- To form part of a dental bridge
We may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing one or more teeth. Dental bridges span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are usually fixed to the natural teeth on either side of the empty space, which serve as anchors for the bridge. An alternative to bridges for the replacement of missing teeth are dental implants.
