Protect, restore and cover broken or weak teeth with dental crowns to restore the original appearance and function of your teeth.
What is a dental crown?
A crown is placed over a broken or weak tooth to restore its shape, strength and improve it’s appearance. The crown when cemented into place fully covers the visible portion of the tooth that sits above the gum line. Crowns come in a range of different materials, including cosmetic varieties that closely match the colour of your natural teeth. On average, we expect a crown to last between 10 to 15 years, depending on the material, it’s position within your mouth, and your standard of dental hygiene. Properly caring for your teeth and gums can help extend the lifespan of your crown.
What can I expect from treatment for a crown?
We will examine the tooth in question to establish the degree of damage or wear and see if a filling will suffice in the first instance, rather than a crown. If a crown is the best option, we will take digital scans of the tooth that requires the crown and of the adjacent teeth. Your dentist at Ingleby House dental practice will also consider your tooth shade and colour, so your crown can be crafted to blend in with your existing tooth shade.
What are the benefits of dental crown treatment?
A dental crown will strengthen your tooth and allow it to look and feel like your existing tooth.
One of the added benefits of dental crown treatment is that after treatment there is no additional aftercare required, simply continue with your existing oral health regime.
