A dental crown or cap is advisable if-
- A tooth is root canal treated. A root canal treated tooth is like a dead tooth with no blood or nerve supply but would carry out normal function of chewing. Being a dead tooth it is brittle and is susceptible to fracture or breakage. In case it does, there are chances that the tooth may not be further restorable or may require additional treatment in terms of build up or crown lengthening before a crown can be given. To reduce the chances of fracture or breakage of a root canal treated tooth a cap or a crown is advisable.
- A tooth is susceptible to fracture or failure due to being heavily restored or fractured.
A ceramic dental crown is a full protective cover which permanently sits over the tooth and looks just like a real tooth – sometimes even better! A crown can make the tooth stronger, better looking and reduce the risk of breakage.
At Tooth Zone ceramic dental crowns are used as they stronger and more esthetic as and have compared to older style crowns such as gold or porcelain fused to metal crowns, which often over time show darker areas around the gum line. These beautiful ceramic crowns are made by our most trusted and skilled dental health ceramic technicians, who have a wealth of dental experience being years in service. The crown replicates the look of a healthy, natural tooth, in size, shape, colour, shine and transparency.
In cosmetic cases in the front teeth ceramic crowns can be used to restore a beautiful but natural smile like you wished you had! The goal is to make your teeth look wonderful without making them “stand out”. Careful planning is used with your feedback to provide a great result you will be happy with.
A dental bridge
It is sometimes used to replace a missing tooth. Teeth adjoining the missing teeth are prepared to receive crowns. Ceramic crowns are bonded to these adjacent prepared teeth and have a ceramic crown bonded to these ceramic crowns to replace the missing tooth. This would fill in the gap and improves the appearance and function.
Two appointments, about two weeks apart, are usually required to complete a crown or bridge.
Our experienced ceramic technicians ensure the highest technical service standards possible. At Tooth Zone we strive for a very natural looking result with beautiful appearance and improved chewing ability.
