Dental Crowns Procedure and Costs
When a tooth is fragile due to a large dental restoration, broken down or irreversibly discoloured, dental crowns may be fabricated to protect the tooth from fracture and to restore its function and aesthetics.
Crowns completely cover the entire tooth. A dental crown not only gives a tooth strength, but it also restores the damaged tooth to its natural appearance and full function. Dental crowns are a fantastic option for teeth that are cracked or weakened by extensive dental fillings or a fractured tooth.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Protecting vulnerable or unaesthetic teeth with crowns can give patients both peace of mind and restore a smile. They are stronger than the alternative inlays, onlays and veneers, and are a great treatment choice where appropriate. A dental crown that is placed over a tooth following a root canal treatment will help to protect the damaged tooth to restore it to full function. With beautiful porcelain, Zirconia and E-max materials, your crown will not only be functional but aesthetic naturally-looking as well.
Dental Crown Process and Crown Dental Surgery
Once it is determined that you need a crown dental procedure after discussing the pros, cons, risks and crown dental surgery price, our dentists will take a small X-ray to ensure the tooth to be crowned is sound and stable. If the X-ray is fine, then the treatment will proceed.
Before starting, you may require local anaesthetic. This helps to numb the tooth or area in question. Our clinic always applies a surface numbing gel before giving the local anaesthetic injection. If you have any concerns regarding analgesia, please do let us know so that we can make the experience as anxiety-free as possible.
Our dentist will take a small impression of your tooth. We will then trim the tooth just enough so that there is space for the material of the dental crown to be placed. An impression is taken of the tooth to be crowned and the opposing teeth. This will be sent to the dental laboratory along with the tooth shading instructions.
A temporary crown will be made and cemented, and the occlusion checked.
When the dental crown returns from the dental laboratory, your temporary crown will be removed and the new, more permanent crown placed. If you are happy with the fit and appearance, we will cement the crown in place. Your bite will be checked and adjusted, if necessary.
