Top-Quality Tooth Replacement

When Might You Need a Dental Crown?

If a tooth suffers significant decay or damage, it might become painful and discolour. This does not always mean losing the tooth; in many instances, our dentists can address the issue by fitting a crown. To maintain an impeccable smile, the zirconium crown stands out as the most sophisticated and natural-looking tooth replacement option, whether it’s a standalone crown, a bridge, or a crown attached to an implant.

What is a Dental Crown and What Are Its Varieties?

A dental crown is a fixed dental prosthesis fitted over a tooth stump above the gum line, or possibly onto a premium Straumann, Nobel Active, or Alpha Bio dental implant.

If the tooth is so damaged that neither fillings nor inlays are viable treatment options, a crown might be the perfect solution. The most prevalent materials used are pressed ceramic crowns, porcelain crowns, and zirconium crowns.

Dental crowns are typically recommended when there’s a significant loss of tooth material due to a fracture or untreated decay.

Crowns can also be used to correct dental alignment or for cosmetic reasons, such as misaligned teeth or large gaps between teeth.

Dental Crown Process

  1. The dentist administers local anaesthesia around the tooth receiving the crown.
  2. The tooth is then shaped appropriately.
  3. Following this, the dentist takes an impression of the surrounding teeth and the stump.
  4. A temporary plastic crown is placed on the tooth.
  5. In a few days, the final crown, crafted by the dental technician based on the earlier impression, is ready.
  6. The dentist secures the final crown to the shaped tooth using specialised dental cement.
