CROWNS

In cases where the damage to your teeth is extreme and irreparable, porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns can be used to create a look and feel that’s just like your natural teeth. This is a reliable technique for repairing severe dental problems, whether it be to fillings or existing crowns, as well as permanently replacing missing teeth. These treatments provide a long-term solution to major dental problems while leaving you with a complete smile and a functional bite.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?

Fitting a crown usually only requires one or two visits. This begins with removing decaying and shaping the tooth before taking a picture using a CEREC computer. This creates a 3D model from which a new crown can be designed using a state-of-the-art milling unit. The crown is then polished and put into place for a beautiful smile.

Aside from restoring your smile and creating a natural look, crowns can help to remedy chewing problems and offer support to misshapen or badly broken teeth. They can be used as a reliable and long-term solution to dental issues resulting from accidents, diseases or wear and tear, as well as to remedy issues associated with broken fillings and existing crowns. Either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold is used, with a higher strength in materials recommended for treating severe dental problems.

Crowns can also be used to relieve the pain that’s sometimes experienced by people with filled back teeth. This is the result of hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth and a crown can help to restore the tooth’s full functioning.

In front teeth, old fillings can sometimes stain or chip, as well as weaken the teeth over time. Porcelain crowns may be a suitable solution in cases where porcelain veneers aren’t, as well as utilized to prevent breakage in teeth with root canal fillings.
