At our Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we provide dental crowns as a surgery to reinforce or enhance the appearance of damaged teeth.They serve as a cap on top of an existing tooth and are an artificial restoration that are placed over it after it has been carefully filed down. They have a wide range of applications. For instance, to protect a tooth after a root canal, to hold a dental bridge in place, to prevent a tooth that is weak or discoloured from breaking, to replace a huge dental filling when not enough tooth is left.
There are numerous materials that can be utilised to create dental crowns, but the most popular ones are ceramic, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Depending on the requirement for the crown and the tooth's location, a different material may be chosen for your crown. When you visit Smile Hub Dental Clinic for dental crown treatment, this might be decided.
We will take note of the colour of the teeth on each side of the one where the crown will be placed during the preparation stage and make sure the colour of the bespoke crown, we produce matches those, so the finished product looks natural.
The dental crown process typically takes two visits to our Clinic in bayside to be completed. We will prepare your tooth for the crown, take impressions for the crown, and fit a temporary crown during the initial appointment. The temporary crown will be taken off and the permanent one put in at the second appointment.
It won't be permanently put in place until you say you're satisfied with the colour, shape, and fit of the permanent crown. Using a specialised, long-lasting dental glue, it will be secured in place. It should last for many years with proper care, with a typical lifespan of 5 to 15 years.
