Restore your smile with expert Dental Crowns

If you’re looking for a reliable solution to restore the strength, appearance, and functionality of your teeth, dental crowns offered at Coniston Dental Practice are the answer. Dental crowns are a versatile and effective way to address a variety of dental issues, from damaged or decayed teeth to cosmetic imperfections. At Coniston Dental Practice, we take pride in providing premium dental crown treatments that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring both aesthetic appeal and functionality.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, also known as ‘caps,’ serve as an ideal restoration solution for teeth extensively damaged by decay or large fillings. They are designed to fit snugly over a weakened tooth, restoring its natural shape, contour, and color. Typically crafted from a combination of metal and porcelain, porcelain crowns are favored for front teeth to avoid the appearance of a dark line where the crown meets the gum.

These versatile restorations offer numerous benefits, including:
  • Strengthening weakened teeth.
  • Restoring functionality after root canal procedures.
  • Repairing severe decay or fractures.
  • Improving the appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth.
  • Providing support for dental bridges and implant restorations.

The Dental Crown procedure

First Visit: Preparation and Impression

The dental crown procedure begins with an initial visit to the dentist. During this appointment, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing any decay and shaping it to accommodate the crown. Once the tooth is prepared, an impression is taken to create a custom crown that perfectly fits the tooth’s dimensions.

Second Visit: Placement of Permanent Crown

After the impression is taken, a temporary crown is placed over the prepared tooth to protect it while the permanent crown is being crafted. In the second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is carefully placed and adjusted to ensure proper fit and bite alignment. This final step completes the dental crown procedure, restoring the tooth’s strength, function, and appearance.

Types of Dental Crowns

Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns offer a lifelike appearance, blending seamlessly with natural teeth. They are durable and resistant to staining, making them suitable for front and back teeth alike.

Metal Crowns

Metal crowns, made from alloys like gold or platinum, provide exceptional durability and can withstand the forces of chewing. They are preferred for back teeth due to their strength and longevity.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns offer both aesthetic appeal and strength. They mimic the translucency of natural teeth, making them an excellent choice for visible areas of the mouth while providing durability and resilience.

Caring For Your Dental Crowns

Dental crowns require proper care to ensure their longevity. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly. Avoid habits like chewing on hard objects or grinding teeth, as they can damage the crown. Regular dental check-ups will help monitor the condition of your crowns and address any issues promptly.
