I would like to improve/replace my front crowns
Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.
Crowns are made of a variety of materials and new materials are being introduced all the time. Here are some of the options available at present:
Porcelain bonded to precious metal: this is what most crowns are made from. A precious metal base is made and layers of porcelain are then applied over it.
Porcelain bonded to gold: these are very strong and cosmetically warm and aesthetic.
All porcelain crowns (metal-free) and bridges are the most aesthetically pleasing. No dark lines around the edges.
- a tooth weakened by having a very large filling
- discoloured fillings where you would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
- where you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
- where you may have had an accident and damaged the tooth
- helping hold a bridge or denture firmly in place
The life of a crown will depend on how well it is looked after. The crown itself cannot decay, but decay can start where the edge of the crown joins the tooth. It is very important to keep this area as clean as your other teeth, or decay could endanger the crown. Properly cared for crowns will last for many years.
Remember, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us either by phone or online.
