Dental Crowns at The Dental Clinic Radlett

Dental crowns, often referred to as ‘caps,’ are a versatile and effective dental restoration solution offered at The Dental Clinic Radlett. Crowns play a pivotal role in preserving and restoring the integrity of damaged or weakened teeth, ensuring both their function and aesthetics are fully restored.

When are Crowns Needed?

Crowns are the ideal choice for several dental situations:

  • Extensive Damage: In cases where a tooth is significantly broken down or weakened due to decay, injury, or a large filling, a crown can provide the necessary support and protection.
  • Restoration of Natural Form: Crowns are designed to fit snugly over the entire tooth, restoring its natural shape, contour, and colour. This ensures that the tooth not only looks but also functions just like a healthy, natural tooth.

Materials for Crowns

At The Dental Clinic Radlett, we offer crowns made from various materials, including metal and porcelain. However, when it comes to front teeth, we typically recommend porcelain crowns. Here’s why:

  • Natural Aesthetics: Porcelain crowns are known for their ability to closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They are carefully colour-matched to your surrounding teeth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.
  • No Dark Line: One distinct advantage of porcelain crowns for front teeth is that they eliminate the concern of a dark line that can sometimes appear above the crown where it meets the gum. This ensures that your smile maintains its natural and vibrant appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the process of getting a dental crown take?

The process typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the tooth, take impressions, and place a temporary crown. The impressions are sent to a dental lab, where the permanent crown is custom-made. The second appointment involves removing the temporary crown and cementing the permanent crown in place. The entire process usually takes a couple of weeks.

What materials are used for dental crowns?

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including metal (such as gold or silver), porcelain, or a combination of metal and porcelain. Porcelain crowns are popular for their natural appearance, especially for front teeth, as they closely resemble natural tooth enamel.

Do dental crowns require special care?

Dental crowns do not require any unique care. You should maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular dental check-ups. Avoid biting down on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages, as this can potentially damage the crown.

Are dental crowns a permanent solution?

Dental crowns are durable and long-lasting, but they may need replacement over time due to normal wear and tear. With proper care and maintenance, a well-fitted dental crown can last many years, providing a reliable and functional solution for your tooth restoration needs.
