A damaged or decayed tooth can be repaired and restored to full function with a crown.

What is a crown?

Crowns are one way in which we can repair a tooth that has become damaged either due to advanced decay or injury. They act as a kind of ‘cap’ (or crown) to the tooth, covering the natural tooth and restoring it to full function once again.

Why do I need a crown?

There are a number of situations in which we may recommend the use of a crown. They can be used to strengthen and restore weakened teeth and teeth that have become worn through ageing and general use or via injury. They are also often used in conjunction with a bridge to help fill a gap in the mouth left by missing teeth, or after a root canal treatment to restore a previously infected tooth to full function.

If you think you might be in need of a crown or are interested in any of our treatments at The Corner House Dental Practice, please contact us or call us on 01403 251 015.


What are crowns made of?

Crowns can be made of a variety of materials, and traditionally have been made using metals such as gold. More recently, materials such as composite resins and, in particular, porcelain have become more popular. This is because they offer a more natural-looking finish and can fit in with the rest of the mouth almost seamlessly.

What is the treatment process like?

Once we have determined that a crown is the right way to go, receiving this treatment usually takes place over two appointments. At the first appointment, we use local anaesthetic, so you don’t feel anything at the area being treated before preparing and shaping the tooth in question. Once this has been done, we’ll then take an impression which will be used to make your personal crown.

Your personal crown is made off-site at a dental laboratory and while it’s being made we can provide you with a temporary crown to ensure your comfort and the function of the tooth. Once the personal crown is ready, you can come back into the practice where we’ll fit it for you, cementing it into place once we’re sure it sits properly in the mouth, and the shape and shade are all correct.
