What Is a Dental Crown?

Sometimes referred to as ‘caps’, dental crowns cover your teeth, disguising damaged or unsightly teeth. They are also used to add strength to weak teeth, as well as to replace missing teeth as part of a dental bridge or dental implant.

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Your dentist will discuss the options for dental crown materials with you, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages. This decision will depend on the position of your tooth (as some materials aren’t suitable for certain areas of the mouth), as well as the kind of cosmetic result you hope to achieve.

Materials for crowns include:

Metal—This is the hardest wearing material available and inexpensive. However, it isn’t aesthetically pleasing.

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM)have a metal base, enclosed in porcelain to match the colour of your other teeth. These are hard-wearing, but the porcelain can chip, exposing the metal. Sometimes, the porcelain may look slightly discoloured as the grey tinge of the metal shows through.

Porcelain—A hard-wearing option providing a good cosmetic result. However, it does have a tendency to wear down.

Zirconia—The most durable and natural-looking, although the most expensive option.

What Does the Procedure for Dental Crowns Entail?

The procedure for dental crowns typically requires two visits to the dentist. During the first appointment, the dentist will discuss your requirements with you and confirm that a crown is suitable.

Next, the dentist will need to prepare your tooth by paring it down for the crown to sit comfortably on top of it. After the tooth has been prepared, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which are sent to a laboratory where your crown is made-to-measure. A temporary crown will be put in place until you return to have your permanent crown fitted.

At your second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and check the new crown for size and colour, making any minor adjustments before fitting the crown securely onto your tooth with a light-activated adhesive.

CAD/CAM Same-Day Dentistry

Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) dentistry is an innovative process that many dental facilities now offer. It allows patients to receive their crown(s) in one day, while they wait. After the dentist has prepared the tooth, digital x-rays are processed by a computer which designs the crown on a screen in front of you. The image files are then sent to an onsite machine that mills the crown in a matter of minutes.

Once complete, the dentist can fit the crown and you can be on your way to enjoy the rest of your time in Egypt, or fly straight home!
