What is a crown?
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap'
It restores strength and increases comfort whilst eating which may have been lost due to a decayed or damaged tooth.
Why would I need a crown?
Crowns are an ideal way to restore teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for example
*you may have a discoloured filling and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth.
*you may have had a root filling which may need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth.
*it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
What is a crown made of?
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are being introduced all the time. Here are the most popular options:
Porcelain bonded to precious or non-precious metal: this is what most crowns are made from. A precious or non-precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it.
All-ceramic crowns: this modern material, known as ZIRCON, is metal free. It can give the strength of a bonded crown and the appearance of a porcelain crown. This makes it suitable for use in all areas of the mouth and aesthetically is the best.
How is a crown prepared?
The dentist will prepare the tooth so it is the ideal shape for the crown. This will involve removing most of the outer surface, and leaving a strong inner core. The amount of the tooth removed will be the same as the thickness of the crown. Once the tooth is shaped, the dentist will take an impression (mould) of the prepared tooth, one of the other jaw, and possibly another to mark the way you bite together.
The impressions will then be given to the dental technician, along with details of the shade to use and other information needed for the crown to be made.
What is a post crown?
If a tooth is root filled the dentist may have to insert a post before placing a crown. A post provides support and helps the crown stay in place. The weakened crown of the tooth may be shortened to gum level.
There are ready-made stainless steel posts which the dentist can fit directly into the root canal, or the dental technician can make a custom-made post to accurately fit the shape of the prepared root canal. The post is placed into the root canal and cemented in position, ready for the crown to be attached.
Are there any alternatives to post crowns for root-filled teeth?
If a root-filled tooth is not completely broken down, it may be possible to build it up again using filling material. This ‘core' is then prepared in the same way as a natural tooth and the impressions are taken.
What will happen between visits?
The dentist will fit a temporary crown so that you can use the tooth while you wait for the crown to be made. You may eat and drink as normal.
How is the crown fitted?
When you and your dentist are happy with the fit and appearance of the new crown it will be fixed in place with special dental cement or adhesive. The cement forms a seal to hold the crown in place
How long does the treatment take?
You crown can be ready in as little as 3 days! On day one you have the tooth prepared, the impressions taken, the shade matched and the temporary crown fitted. When your permanent crown is ready it is fitted and adjusted for perfect comfort and fit.
Does it hurt to have a tooth prepared for a crown?
No, you will have a local anaesthetic and the preparation should feel no different from a filling. If the tooth does not have a nerve, and you are having a post crown, you may not need a local anaesthetic.
Will the crown be noticeable?
The crown will be made to match your other teeth as closely as possible. The shade of the neighbouring teeth will be recorded, to make sure that the colour looks natural and matches the surrounding teeth.
How do I care for my crown?
How long your crown lasts depends on how well you look after it. The crown itself cannot decay, but decay can start where the edge of the crown joins the tooth. Therefore, to prevent decay affecting the crown, it is important to keep this area just as clean as you would your natural teeth. Brush for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and clean in between your teeth with ‘interdental' brushes or floss.
How long will the crown last?
Properly cared for crowns should last for many years and we guarantee a minimum of 5 years, part of our 'no quibble' policy.
