Crowns are hollow prosthetic teeth, usually made of porcelain or ceramics, that are placed over an existing tooth, and can be used to protect a vulnerable or damaged tooth, particularly if that tooth has fractured. Crowns can also be used cosmetically, to cover teeth that are discoloured are mis-shaped. Teeth that are damaged by impact, for example, can bleed internally, staining the tooth enamel from within and causing it to go grey or even black.
All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide the best natural color match than any other crown type, and are also a good choice for people with metal allergies. Naenae Dental Clinic can create natural and aesthetic crowns in-house using their computer aided design technology, which means most of their crowns are completed in a single visit and only require one dental appointment.
Crowns are applied by reducing the size of the existing tooth via filing away the outer enamel and some of the underlying dentin, so that the crown can be placed over top of it. The crown is then secured with dental cement. This process usually takes two separate visits to the dentist, but once finished a dental crown can remain with you for life.
Dental Crowns are custom-made caps that are used to restore and strengthen a weak or broken down tooth, and can be used to strengthen cracked teeth or for aesthetic reasons to improve your smile by changing the shape and colour of your teeth. Dental Crowns can be made out of a variety of different materials including gold and most commonly porcelain. Porcelain is used due to its high strength and natural aesthetic colour and appearance.
Crowns replace the exterior part of a tooth to restore its original function and to create a natural appearance, and are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused extensive damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion or wear.
Crowns can be completed on a single visit, and at Naenae Dental Clinic they
