Crowns at Abbey House Dental
Crowns have many different benefits for your teeth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’.
It is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns are used to repair teeth damaged by decay or trauma. Porcelain crowns restore 98% of usage of a damaged tooth and 100% of its appearance. They are also best practice for a tooth which has had a root canal treatment done as it protects the tooth.
Porcelain crowns are popular, they are aesthetically pleasing, strong and durable. Porcelain crowns are often used to replace metal crowns.
To prepare your tooth for a crown, we will carefully reshape your existing tooth. The crown will have a natural appearance and close fit. We will discuss at length the shade to get the perfect to match. Your new crown will look, feel and function exactly like your natural tooth.
To make a crown will normally take 2 visits, the first will be to shape the tooth and take impressions, we will place a temporary crown whilst the new crown is being made. After 10-14 days your new bespoke crown will be ready to fit restoring your smile, function and strength.
