Many people have heard of crowns, but if you haven’t had one fitted, before, you might not know what are they are. A dental crown simply sits on top of your tooth. The tooth itself is not removed, so the crown isn’t a replacement tooth as such. Just like a crown that sits on top of a head, a dental crown sits on top of the tooth. This is done to protect it from further problems if it’s already vulnerable for whatever reason. The protection it offers can be prevent pain. At Club Dental, we can fit crowns that are right for you, and we’ve done it for many patients like you in the past.
Crowns are made to help teeth that have been damaged or weakened. Our dentists might choose to remove a damaged or weakened part of your tooth if this is the safest cause of action. However, this won’t always be necessary. Sometimes, the crown can simply fit on top of your existing tooth without the need for a current part of your tooth to be removed. It all depends on your specific situation and what condition your tooth is currently in. This is something that our dentists will look at carefully and judge for themselves.
Cracked teeth can also be treated with crowns. When a tooth becomes cracked it immediately becomes vulnerable. The crack can deepen and widen if the right action is not taken by the dentist, and this can cause pain. Things can even get caught in the crack. But having a crown in place that can stop this from happening will keep you and your teeth safe at all times. That’s a real help, so make sure that you come to us rapidly if your tooth gets cracked. We’ll be able to recommend the right treatment, which might be a crown.
There are many benefits of having a crown fitted. As mentioned above, cracks can be restored and further damage result from cracks can be prevented. On top of that, your smile can be made healthier, and its appearance can certainly be improved. When the right crown is fitted in the right kind of way, it will be natural-looking and very hard to spot for anyone who doesn’t know it’s there. This is something that’s very important for many people. Another benefit is that pain and discomfort can be eliminated immediately. This will make the ability to chew much better and much more pleasant for you.
Having a crown fitted by one of our dentists is always the long-lasting solution. However, that doesn’t mean that the placement of the crown has to take a long time. We aim to get the job done properly and quickly. We understand that you want to get back to normal as quickly sa possible, and we share your desire. On your first appointment with us, we will look at the problem area, do any cleaning that’s required and put preparations in place. Then a custom crowd will be crafted for you, and on your next visit, we’ll put in place. There is nothing more to it than that.
There are a few different options to consider and choose between when it comes to the material that the crown will be made from. They are either made from metal, porcelain or a composite of the two materials. If the tooth is towards the front of your mouth, porcelain crowns will be used. This is because they can be matched to the color of your teeth easily, making them impossible to spot. Metal crowns can be better for teeth at the back of your mouth, though. They’re a little stronger and can last for a very long time.
Many people wonder how long their crowns will last once they’re in place. This depends on a number of different factors. For example, the condition of your original tooth will have an impact on how long the crows is capable of lasting. But we use good materials, and our dentists know what they’re doing. That means your crown will last for many years when you use our services. We make sure that your problem won’t return anytime soon.
