Dental Crowns

Dental crowns or coverings that will protect the whole tooth. When placed correctly a crown can actually make your tooth stronger and prevent damage to the tooth.

The video shows you how a crown is prepared and why it helps strengthen the underlying tooth.

What are dental crowns made of?

  • Porcelain and metal substructure
  • All ceramic crowns
  • Gold
Most crown should last 10-15 years, and at the front the more aesthetic types such as all ceramic ones are used. In the back where there is greater stress placed on the teeth then metal/porcelain crowns or gold crowns are used.

When would I need a dental crowns?

  • If there is a large filling and it is starting to crack, it is usually wise to proctect the tooth from future fracture by placing a crown.
  • A crown is always placed on top of an implant since this is the cover for the implant and the reason the implant was placed.
  • After root canal treatment, a crown is often needed to strengthen the tooth since large amounts of the natural tooth is missing and this will prevent future fracture.
  • If you grind your teeth or have a diet with a lot of acid such as ( fizzy drinks ) then the enamel can be worn away. In some cases it is so badly worn away that the only option to rebuild the tooth and bite is to have a crown.
  • For cosmetic reasons some teeth have developed in unaesthetic way and so would benefit from the surface of the tooth being covered.
