Dental Crowns

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is an artificial cap that’s fitted on a damaged tooth to give a natural appearance and protect the remaining tooth structure. Commonly used on broken or weakened teeth, the finished cap comes in a variety of materials and can be used in any part of the mouth.

Description

Porcelain and mental bonded crowns are the most common type due to their strength and reliability. Often used in the molar region, these bonded caps are created with a metal alloy thimble, which is veneered with porcelain to create an accurate finish.

Porcelain and gold crowns are the strongest option, created from a gold thimble with a porcelain veneer. The inherent strength of the gold base ensures the finished product is long lasting and ideal for use at the back of the mouth.

The Treatment Process

Once you have selected your material, your dentist will prepare the outer surface of the remaining tooth and take an impression. This will then be sent to the lab where a Synergy expert will create a bespoke unit to your specifications. A fitting will take place at any one of our clinics, at which point a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area and prevent pain.
If well maintained, a crown should last between 20 and 30 years. However, this is dependent on the material used, the location of the treatment and the aftercare administered by the patient.

Crown Material Options

There are a number of different materials available, all of which provide their own benefits.
Full porcelain crowns (Zirconia) are metal free and often used for the replacement or restoration of front teeth. Constructed from a full porcelain block, the caps are veneered with layers of porcelain to create an accurate colour match and a strong finish.
Porcelain and metal bonded crowns are the most common type due to their strength and reliability. Often used in the molar region, these bonded caps are created with a metal alloy thimble, which is veneered with porcelain to create an accurate finish.
Porcelain and gold crowns are the strongest option, created from a gold thimble with porcelain veneer. The inherent strength of the gold base ensures the finished product is long lasting and ideal for use at the back of the mouth.
