Dental Crowns London

Dental crowns are a common solution for injured, discolored, or cracked teeth. They fit over the affected tooth and protect it from further damage. They can also fill the space left after dental extractions.

The Role of Dental Crowns in Restoring Teeth

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are used to restore teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of breaking. They are typically constructed from noble alloys or porcelain and are needed if a significant portion of the tooth is missing. Crowns help restore a tooth, resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Reasons for Dental Crowns

  • A previous filling has broken or fractured
  • Too much of a tooth is lost to decay
  • Extensive damage due to decay or breakage
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Cosmetic purposes, such as discoloration
  • Protection after root canal therapy
  • Fractured or chipped surfaces
  • Large or fractured fillings

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The process of getting a dental crown begins with a consultation and exam with one of our dentists. During your first visit, they will prepare your tooth structure and take an impression of the prepared tooth. They will then place a temporary crown on the tooth and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. At your next visit, the dentist will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement it in place. This process ensures a precise fit for your tooth, resolving any decay or infection prior to placement of the crown.

Restore Your Smile Today

Once your crown is fitted appropriately, it will blend seamlessly with your teeth, restoring your all-white smile and returning the strength you need for comfortable oral function. Crowns allow dentists to restore form and function to your tooth without needing to perform an extraction, saving as much real tooth/enamel as possible. You can again be confident about your dental health and your amazing smile.
