What is a Dental Crown?

A badly broken or heavily filled tooth can become weak and can ruin the appearance of your smile. A simple crown will work wonders for both the strength and appearance of your teeth. A crown is like a crash helmet for your tooth, making it stronger in the long term as well as smoothing out the way it looks. Having a crown fitted involves your Devonshire Dental Clinic dentist taking an impression of your existing tooth so that the shape can be perfectly matched to your new crown for a comfortable, secure and natural looking fit. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold, but we recommend porcelain crowns because they are the most natural looking and can be made completely indistinguishable from natural teeth giving you a fantastic smile.

New crown materials include procera, which is a modern crown made of all porcelain, produced using cutting edge cad-cam technology to produce a crown that is extremely strong and looks great. Whatever your choice of material, your dentist at The Oral Hygiene Centre and Devonshire Dental Clinic will explain the process to you in full and help you decide the best option to go with. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
