Crowns

Dental Crowns from Derby Dentist - Allenton Dental

Artificial dental crowns are used to improve the appearance of weak, misshapen or discoloured teeth. Crowns completely cover a weak tooth above the gum line and protect it. They are strong, looking and feeling exactly like a natural tooth as we make its colour and shape to match your own teeth.

A dental crown can last for many years, particularly if you look after your mouth and teeth and the crown does not get accidentally damaged. They are made either Eicomia or Emax, ceramic inside for strength. To fit a crown we will shape your tooth so that when the artificial crown is fitted it will be the same size as a normal tooth.

The preparation time will depend on how damaged your tooth is and if it needs to be built up with a filling first. Your tooth may have to be root-filled first and sometimes the crown may have to be held in place by a peg in the root canal if a lot of your tooth is missing.

Once the preparation is complete we will use a soft, mouldable material to make exact 'impressions' of the tooth that is to be crowned and the nearby teeth. These impressions are used to make the crown the exact height and size needed.

We then put a temporary crown over your tooth until the permanent crown is made. You can chew on this temporary crown but it will not be as strong as the finished one.

Once your crown is fitted we will make small adjustments to ensure you can bite comfortably. Once fully adjusted it is glued into place.

Our experienced dental team at Allenton Dental in Derby are fully trained and equipped to provide you with great looking dental crowns.
