Dental Crowns: Restoring Your Smile and Your Confidence

At 57 Dental & Implant Centre, we understand the importance of a healthy and confident smile. That’s why we offer dental crown services to restore and enhance the appearance and functionality of your teeth. Our team of dental professionals is committed to providing high-quality dental care, ensuring that you receive personalised treatment tailored to your specific needs. 

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a tooth cap or dental cap, is a custom-made restoration that covers the entire visible portion of a tooth. It is designed to restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance. Dental crowns are often recommended for various dental issues, including:

  1. Tooth Decay: When a tooth has extensive decay that cannot be restored with a filling, a dental crown can provide the necessary protection and strength to the weakened tooth structure.
  2. Fractured or Cracked Teeth: Teeth that are fractured or cracked can be vulnerable to further damage or infection. A dental crown can protect the tooth, prevent further fractures, and restore its strength.
  3. Cosmetic Enhancement: Dental crowns can be used to improve the appearance of teeth with significant discoloration, shape irregularities, or size discrepancies. They can help achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
  4. Root Canal Treatment: After undergoing root canal therapy, a tooth may become weak and prone to fractures. Placing a dental crown over the treated tooth can provide added support and protection.
  5. Dental Implants: Dental crowns are commonly used to restore missing teeth in conjunction with dental implants. They serve as the visible part of the replacement tooth, providing natural-looking and functional results.

The Dental Crown Procedure at 57 Dental & Implant Centre

Our dental crown procedure is performed with utmost precision and care to ensure optimal results. Here is an overview of what you can expect during your visit:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including X-rays and digital scans. They will discuss your concerns, evaluate the need for a dental crown, and develop a personalised treatment plan.
  2. Tooth Preparation: In order to accommodate the dental crown, a small amount of your tooth structure will be gently removed. This ensures a proper fit for the crown without altering your natural bite. If necessary, our dentist may numb the area to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
  3. Impression: Our dental team will take an impression of the prepared tooth and the surrounding teeth. This impression serves as a blueprint for the dental laboratory to create your custom-made crown. While the permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown will be placed over the prepared tooth for protection and aesthetics.
  4. Custom Crown Fabrication: We work closely with trusted dental laboratories that utilise advanced technology and high-quality materials to craft your dental crown. These materials can include porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these, depending on your specific needs and preferences.
  5. Final Placement: Once your custom crown is ready, you will return to our clinic for the final placement. Our dentist will remove the temporary crown, thoroughly clean the tooth, and check the fit and aesthetics of the permanent crown. If everything meets our standards, the crown will be permanently bonded to your tooth using dental adhesive.
  6. Post-Treatment Care: After the placement of your dental crown, our dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your new restoration. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and attending routine dental check-ups. With proper care, your dental crown can last for many years, providing you with a functional and beautiful smile.

FAQs about Dental Crowns

Getting a dental crown typically involves local anaesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area, so you should not experience any pain during the procedure. After the anaesthesia wears off, you may feel some discomfort or sensitivity in the treated tooth for a few days, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

The lifespan of a dental crown can vary depending on factors such as the material used, your oral hygiene habits, and the amount of wear and tear on the crown. With proper care, a dental crown can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or more.

No, dental crowns are designed to cover and protect existing teeth, not replace missing ones. However, dental bridges and dental implants are two common options for replacing missing teeth.

Dental crowns can be made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth, so they should blend in seamlessly with your smile. However, some materials such as metal may be more noticeable than others.

The cost of a dental crown can vary depending on factors such as the material used, the complexity of the procedure, and your dental insurance coverage. At 57 Dental & Implant Centre, we offer competitive pricing for our dental crown services and can work with you to explore your payment options.

As with any dental procedure, there is a slight risk of complications such as infection, sensitivity, or damage to the tooth or surrounding tissue. However, these risks are generally low and can be minimised by choosing an experienced and qualified dental provider.

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of materials. Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks, and the best option for you will depend on your specific dental needs and preferences.

To ensure the longevity of your dental crown, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and attending regular dental check-ups. You should also avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice or popcorn kernels and avoid using your teeth as tools to open packages. Additionally, if you grind or clench your teeth, your dentist may recommend a night guard to protect your crown and other teeth from damage.
