What Is a Dental Crown?

Sometimes known as a cap, because it fits over your tooth, the dental crown procedure is particularly versatile. It can be used to:

● Add strength to a damaged tooth (or teeth)

● Disguise a chipped, cracked or damaged tooth

● Replace a missing tooth as part of a dental implant, or as part of a dental bridge

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Nowadays, there are a number of materials used for dental crowns, each with their own pros and cons. Your dentist will discuss the best option for your circumstances, which may be dictated by where in the mouth you need the crown, as well as what sort of aesthetic appearance you’re looking for.

Materials used for crowns include:

● Metal—This is the hardest wearing material but is not considered cosmetically pleasing. It is one of the most inexpensive options.

● Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM)—These crowns are made from metal, but encased in porcelain, which matches the colour of your teeth. This is a hard-wearing material, but the porcelain is prone to chipping, exposing the metal underneath, and sometimes the grey cast of the metal can be seen through the porcelain.

● Porcelain—A popular option and hard-wearing but it does tend to wear down over time.

● Zirconia—The most expensive material for crowns. It is extremely hard-wearing and very natural-looking.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Crowns?

The dental crowns procedure usually requires two visits to the dentist:

  1. During the first visit, your dentist will assess your mouth to confirm that a crown is the best option for you. If you go ahead with the treatment, the next step involves your dentist preparing your tooth to receive the new crown. This involves filing the tooth down so that the crown can fit over it. Next, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which are sent to a laboratory where your new crown is created. The dentist will place a temporary crown over your tooth until your new crown is received and you can go back to have it fitted.
  1. When you go back to have your new crown fitted, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the new one over your tooth to check for size and fit. Any minor adjustments to the size are made by your dentist before the crown is fixed securely to your tooth using a light-activated adhesive.

CAD/CAM Same-Day Dentistry

Computer-aided design/Computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) dentistry is an increasingly popular service offered by modern dental clinics. It allows for same-day crowns that can be designed on a computer screen in front of you. The images are sent to an onsite milling machine that creates the crown while you wait. This is a great option for dental tourists as it speeds up the treatment time, as well as the number of required visits to the dentist (i.e. one rather than at least two).
