Dental crowns or caps are dental prosthetics intended to replace a damaged or lost tooth. Most dentists recommend crowns as they are efficient, durable, and aesthetically pleasing since they imitate your natural tooth colour and shape. Aside from restoring or replacing a damaged tooth, dental crowns are also necessary to:
- Prevent a weak tooth from breaking
- Support a tooth that is already covered by a large filling
- Cover discoloured, malformed or other imperfect teeth
- Support dental bridges
- Cover a crown on the top of a dental implant
- Cosmetically enhance your smile
Dental crown treatment
Having dental crowns in London Centre usually requires two visits to the office. The first appointment entails the dental exam and preparation of the tooth. Your dentist might request for your dental X-ray that includes the surrounding structure of the affected bite. This will let him detect irregularities and check for decay or infection. If such disease is present, he may recommend you undergo a root canal treatment first before having the dental crowns.
On your next visit, your dentist begins the procedure by putting you under sedation to help you calm down. Once you’re relaxed, your dentist will start to prepare your tooth and file it down to fit in the tooth cap. On the other hand, if the tooth has lost most of its structure, he will bond the tooth with filling materials. After that, he will scan the tooth to get its impression. This will be sent to the dental lab where your crown will be fabricated.
After a few weeks, your dental crowns in London Centre will be done and will be sent to your dentist. By that time, you’ll return to the office and have them applied to your prepared tooth. If you’re interested in this procedure for your smile enhancement, book an appointment with us now!
