Good roots? Get crowns

As dentists in the 21st Century, our main aim is to help you to hang onto your teeth for as long as you can. Whereas in the past, dentists couldn’t wait to pull your teeth out and give you the latest in dentures, nowadays we know that your tooth roots are invaluable for two reasons. They stop your teeth wobbling around when you eat and speak, and they also keep your jawbone cells in a state of constant renewal, so that your jawbone is big and strong.

Dental Crowns in HammersmithWe have a good range of techniques for helping you keep your teeth here at Kings Dental and one of them is dental crowns. In Hammersmith, these little treasures in our toolkit have a long and illustrious history. Crowns have been used in dentistry since the Etruscans (the people who lived in Tuscany in ancient times) had to find ways to repair their teeth, no doubt after chomping down on olive stones.

What is a dental crown?

The dental crown is a porcelain cover that goes over the entire surface of the any tooth that has suffered a trauma of some kind, or have had a large filling, or have had root canal treatment. The crown is fitted over the remains of the tooth, which may have to be shaped first, and this strengthens and protects it from further damage.

Getting a crown fitted

This usually needs 2 appointments. At the first appointment, we examine and prepare the tooth. We check the tooth roots and bone around it are healthy, which may mean taking x-rays. If they are, we can go onto the next stage.

Next, we give you a local anaesthetic, before filing down the tooth to make room for the crown. If, on the other hand, you have hardly any tooth left to start with, we can we will rebuild it up so that it can support the crown. Next, we take an impression of your tooth. This is used to make the crown out of porcelain that is colour-matched to your teeth. We fit it at the next appointment, cementing it in place.

Strengthen and restore your teeth with dental crowns in Hammersmith

One’s smile is one of the first things we notice about a person’s appearance. People with a big, bright smile are naturally magnetic and personable. Unfortunately, if you have broken, cracked, or missing teeth, you might be unwilling to smile. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry can help you restore and transform your smile with dental crowns.

Dental Crowns in HammersmithAt Kings Dental Clinic, we use dental crowns to preserve and protect your teeth while restoring the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns are strong and durable and, in most cases, they look just like natural teeth. There are a number of materials that may be used for the creation of dental crowns: porcelain, ceramic, stainless steel, and resin. Your dentist will be the one to determine which type is best for your specific issue, though porcelain crowns are the most common since they combine maximum function and aesthetics.

What to expect

A dental crown installation will usually require two separate visits to the dentist. On your first visit, your dentist will examine the affected tooth and determine whether or not it can support a crown. If your tooth can support a crown, they will start filing it down to prepare it. If your tooth is significantly damaged, your dentist may need to add a filling as well. Crowns function like caps over the teeth, therefore it is really important that the tooth is prepared in the right shape. Once the preparation is completed, your dentist will take an impression and send it to the dental lab, where your permanent crown will be made. You will also be fitted in with a temporary crown until you receive your final crown.

When your permanent crown is ready, you will visit the dentist for the last part of the process. They will remove the temporary crown and position and secure the new one on your tooth with a special kind of adhesive. It will take some time for you to adjust to this new fixture, but eventually, you will get used to the permanent crown. Over time, your dental crown should look, function, and feel just like the rest of your teeth.
