Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over broken or weak teeth to restore shape and strength. At Cosmetic Dentistry London Clinic, our highly regarded dentists use the highest quality dental crowns to rejuvenate your smile.
A variety of materials are used to make crowns:
Firstly, your highly qualified dentist at Cosmetic Dentistry London Clinic will make room for the crown by filing down your tooth, leaving the inner core intact. An impression of your tooth will then be taken and sent to a dental technician, along with any other important information. The shade of the crown will also be determined.
Using the highest expertise, your dentist will fit a temporary restoration over your tooth. Once you’re happy with the size, colour, and shape of the permanent crown, it will be bonded to your tooth with a special dental cement.
The treatment will require at least two appointments. The first appointment involves the tooth being filed down, impressions being taken, and the fitting of the temporary crown. About one to two weeks later, you will have the second appointment for your dentist to place the permanent crown.
No. The initial filing down of the tooth will cause minimal discomfort, and the procedure will be carried out under local anaesthetic. However, if the tooth no longer has its nerve, local anaesthetic may not be necessary.
Crowns are made to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth, so they blend in seamlessly with your smile.
Crowns require minimal aftercare. Simply look after it just as you would your natural teeth. Brush it carefully with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and floss in between the teeth to remove debris and plaque.
Crowns should last for many years with correct care. A thorough dental care routine, along with regular checkups with your dentist will ensure the longevity of your crowns.
The cost of dental crowns depends on the specific material used. Your dentist will discuss the cost with you at your initial consultation. To help with the cost, Cosmetic Dentistry London Clinic offers patients 0% interest finance and affordable monthly payment plans.
