What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental Crowns are fixtures (or caps) that are used to restore the damaged visible parts of the tooth. It is one of the methods used for restoring damaged or missing teeth. Dental crowns are usually made out of zirconium or porcelain that is fused to metal (PFM).

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

Dental Crowns are used when teeth cannot be restored by using traditional fillings and filling materials. They help:

  • Restore the form

  • Functioning capabilities

  • Aesthetics of the tooth

  • Improve the strength of a tooth

  • Protect the underlying tooth

  • Keep a dental bridge in place

  • Cover the top part of a dental implant

  • Provide a more natural tooth like functionality

What Is The Dental Crown Procedure?

  • 1. During your first visit at our clinics, our dental experts will take an X-ray of the tooth that requires Dental Crown treatment. In some cases, Root Canal Treatment could be required before dental crown treatment can be performed.

  • 2. Dental Crown procedure begins by anaesthetising the gum tissues surrounding the tooth that requires treatment. The tooth is then filed along the sides and the surfaces to create a proper shape for the placement of the dental crown. 

  • 3. As soon as the tooth has been reshaped, our dentists will take an impression of the tooth. This impression will then be sent to our dental laboratory where within 2 weeks a dental crown will be created just for you. A temporary crown will be provided to protect the filed tooth and to cover the visible gaps, while our experts create your dental crown.

  • 4. At your next visit at our clinics you will receive a permanent crown. Our dentists will remove the temporary crown and fit the permanent one. If the crown fits well, matches the shape and colour of the other teeth, it will then be cemented.

What About Dental Crown After Care?

Teeth that have dental crowns usually do not require additional dental care, however, dental crowns do not completely provide protection to the underlying teeth. Bad oral hygiene can cause infections and gum diseases, therefore, brushing and flossing regularly is essential.

IT IS SAFE TO VISIT US!

Updated: 21st of January

Dear patients,

Everyone of us has had to give up something due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Even such little things such as getting a haircut, lifting weights at the gym and other beauty and self-care activities are currently unavailable understandably. However, this is not the case for medical appointments.

According to the latest government guidelines, medical appointments – including visits to dental practices - are one of the few reasons you can leave your house, so we are encouraging everyone in need of dental treatment to book an appointment with us and not let your dental health suffer.

HOW IT WORKS? 

• Upon booking an appointment with us, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from our team.
• You can then use this e-mail confirmation of your appointment as proof of why you are outside, if needed.

HOW IS IT SAFE? 

• Our staff are equipped with additional PPE gear, to ensure as safe treatment procedures as possible.
• We have longer gaps between appointments to thoroughly clean and disinfect surgeries.
• We do a Covid-19 screening of each visiting patient before their appointment.
• Our waiting area is closed to ensure social distancing measures.
• Patients are asked to come only a few minutes prior to their appointment.
• We only let patients in the clinic as the appointment is about to begin.

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinics,
Stay safe and healthy.
