What are Crowns?

Cosmetic single crowns are one of the most efficient and quite commonly done procedures to restore tooth damage. A single crown not only repairs the lost or damaged tooth but also helps prevent decaying of other teeth around the lost tooth. Crowns can be needed for any of the following reasons:

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking for instance tooth decay or when there isn't a lot of tooth remaining or tooth has a large filling
  • To restore a severely worn down tooth
  • To cover discoloured teeth
  • To cover a root canal treated tooth

They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. A crown is able to restore the shape, size and strength of the bonded tooth. Getting effective treatment for tooth loss is quite important, and a single crown is one of the best options available.

Procedure of Crowns

The crown fitting procedure is usually a two-step process. On your first visit the tooth will be reduced or shaped for the final crown, impression or 3 D scan is taken and a  temporary crown is placed. On your second visit, the temporary crown is removed and replaced with a permanent crown which is cemented with permanent cement. Depending on the requirements, you can either choose a porcelain-based crown or a metal-based one.
