Teeth restoration with dental crowns in London
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 from zirconium or porcelain that is fused to metal (PFM). Each crown is custom-made to fit the bite and the aesthetics of the smile properly.
The procedure is relatively quick and will take just a couple of appointments to have your tooth fully restored.
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.
The 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.
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 a dental crown will be custom made to match your requirements. A temporary crown can be provided to protect the filed tooth and to cover the visible gaps, while our experts craft your dental crown.
