What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are used in a variety of situations. It fits over your tooth and is sometimes referred to as a “cap”. Uses include:

● To provide strength to teeth that are damaged with chips or cracks.

● To support weakened teeth that have had a large amount of decay removed, either through fillings or root canals.

● To replace a missing tooth, either as part of a dental bridge or as part of a dental implant.

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Materials for dental crowns all have their advantages and disadvantages, although for most people nowadays it is aesthetic quality rather than longevity that is the most important factor when choosing their dental crown. The type of material used is dependent upon the position of your tooth and how much force is exerted upon it during normal biting and chewing movements. However, your dentist will discuss the options with you, but a brief summary of the pros and cons of the main crown materials is below:

● Metal is the strongest, and cheapest, material for your crown, but is not aesthetically pleasing.

● Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) has a metal base, wrapped in porcelain. They look much better than metal crowns and match the colour of your other teeth. They are generally hard-wearing, although the porcelain may chip. Sometimes, the grey cast of the metal can be seen through the porcelain.

● Porcelain—A hard-wearing option but has a tendency to wear down over time.

● Zirconia—A natural-looking, tooth-coloured option which is hard-wearing—and the most expensive material.

What is the Procedure for Dental Crowns?

It usually takes two visits to the dentist to complete your dental crowns treatment.

During the first visit, the dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to ensure a crown is the most suitable option. If it is, your tooth will need to be prepared to receive a crown, by paring the tooth down so that the crown fits comfortably on top. Under local anaesthetic, the dentist will carry out this stage of the procedure, before taking impressions of your mouth to send to the laboratory where your new crown is made-to-measure. You will be fitted with a temporary crown until you return to have your permanent crown placed.

It will usually be a few days before your new crown is received by your dentist. Again, under local anaesthetic, the dentist will remove your temporary crown and fit the new crown over your tooth to check for fit and size. Any minor adjustments are made by the dentist before the crown is bonded to your tooth using a light-activated adhesive.

CAD/CAM Same-Day Dentistry

Computer-aided design/Computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) dentistry is one of dentistry’s newest innovations that is becoming a popular option in high-end dental clinics. The technology allows the dentist to design your new crown on a computer in the clinic and show you how it will look. Adjustments to size, shape and colour can be made on the screen until you and your dentist are happy. Then, the images are sent to an onsite milling machine that creates your crown while you wait.
