When Would I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are commonly known as ‘caps’ because they cover existing teeth. Crowns may be required to add strength to a broken, damaged or weak tooth, as well as being versatile in tooth replacement treatments; for example as part of a dental implant or dental bridge procedure.

Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth, in a purely cosmetic way.

What Is the Procedure for a Dental Crown? How Long Will it Take?

Once requiring two visits to the dentist, dental crown procedures can now be carried out in just one day if your dentist provides CAD/CAM dental restorations. This technology has revolutionised dental treatments requiring prosthodontics, like crowns, because they can be designed on a computer screen in your dentist’s office in front of you, and the files sent to an onsite milling machine to prepare the crown while you wait.

Preparation: If your dentist does not have CAD/CAM, the dentist will need to take impressions of your mouth and send them to an external laboratory after your tooth has been prepared. The tooth will need to be filed down so that the crown fits. A temporary crown will be fitted and worn until your new crown has been sent from the lab.

Fitting of Crown: The dentist will check the crown for colour and fit, placing it over your tooth and making any minor adjustments. An adhesive is then applied to the tooth, which is activated by a special light that bonds the crowns to the tooth securely.

What Material Should I Choose for My Crown?

There are a variety of different materials available for crowns, the choice of which may depend on a number of factors that your dentist will talk you through.

All materials have their pros and cons; for instance:

Porcelain is natural-looking but is prone to chipping;

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) is stronger but sometimes the grey tinge of metal can show through the porcelain;

Metal is strong but generally considered ugly; and

Zirconia is a hard-wearing, natural-looking material but is the most expensive option of the lot. (However, with the prices so low in Cairo, you may well be able to upgrade to zirconia without it denting your bank balance too much.)
