Dental Crowns In Daresbury

What is a Dental Crown?

A crown is used to entirely cover or ‘cap’ a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed onto an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys and acrylic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.

      When do I need a crown?

      You may need a crown to replace your tooth when you:

      • Replace a large filling when there is not enough tooth remaining
      • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
      • Restore a fractured tooth
      • Attach a bridge
      • Cover a dental implant
      • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
      • Cover a tooth that has has root canal treatment

        How are crowns fitted?

        The procedure usually requires two sessions at The Dental Academy. First the dentist will prepare your tooth for a crown, filing it down into a shape that best accommodates the prosthetic restoration. Dental impressions are then taken, which will be sent to a laboratory. You’ll be given a temporary crown while you wait for your crown to be made. When it’s ready, your dentist will fit your restoration, cementing it in place using a bonding agent.
