A beautiful and healthy smile is all that you need to have the confidence to achieve all you’ve been dreaming of. But if your smile isn’t quite up to scratch, perhaps your teeth are weak or unsightly, then dental crowns could be the answer to get you smiling once more.
What Are They?
A dental crown is used to restore a damaged tooth, usually one that has a cavity that is affecting the whole tooth. A prosthetic tooth is cemented over the gum, either to a synthetic implant or the remaining portion of the tooth, essentially replacing the tooth.
What are Dental Crowns Made Out Of?
Crowns can be made from a wide range of materials, either dental ceramic, metal, or a combination of both (porcelain-fused-to-metal).
How Long Do They Last?
Dental crowns last between 5 to 15 years. The better your oral hygiene, the longer they will last i.e. brushing twice a day and professional cleaning every 6 months.
Some Things to Consider
The necessary preparation to crown a tooth means that much of it may be removed. Therefore it must only be done when absolutely necessary as it could mean that healthy sections of tooth are removed. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can also be unsightly, as they have a metal substructure and require an opaque below the porcelain. This can mean that occasionally a darker line will be visible at the edge of the crown, near to the gum when it recedes with age.
