Common Questions about Crowns
What are the benefits?
The crown will restore strength, size, shape and appearance back into the tooth. The dentist will prepare the tooth to the correct shape to secure the crown. The crown constructed then protects the remaining tooth structure, ensuring the shape is consistent with your surrounding teeth. Contacts with adjacent and opposing teeth are harmonised to make the crown feel like one of your own teeth.
How does the dentist make a crown?
To fit a patient with a crown, which matches closely to their own teeth, an impression is taken of the tooth or teeth, which require(s) treatment. This is then sent to a dental technician laboratory, who will make the crown to match the patient’s own teeth. Under a local anaesthetic, the crown is shaped and fitted to the tooth.
What happens to my teeth while the crown is being made?
A temporary crown is fitted to your tooth while your own crown is being made. When your crown is ready, the temporary tooth is easily removed and the new crown fitted.
What is a crown made of?
Porcelain is the best choice, especially for front teeth and if you’re looking for a more natural look. It is at the higher end as far as cost is concerned but considered to be Most crowns are made from porcelain that is bonded to precious metal or non-precious metal. Bonded crowns are stronger but don’t look quite as natural as porcelain.
Ceramic crowns and glass crowns are metal free and are as strong as bonded crowns but have the appearance of porcelain, which makes this choice more suitable for either front or back teeth. Gold alloy is a traditionally used material but modern day technicians use this along with other materials to make it a more hardwearing alternative. They can be produced in either gold or silver.
