Besides increasing the longevity of certain heavily restored teeth, dental crowns can also be utilized to perfectly imitate natural teeth. The reflective properties of the porcelains have improved with current technology.
Benefits of crowns for teeth
- Masking discoloured teeth/old restorations
- Large broken down fillings
- Extensive dental decay
- Protection of weakened teeth from large fillings
- Protection of weakened teeth from the effects of root canal treatment.
- Cracked teeth
- Teeth with poor size or shape
Your friendly dentist will determine whether a tooth will benefit from the strengthening effects of crowns. In some cases, teeth may not be suitable. The procedure typically involves a first appointment where the dentist will remove a very small portion of enamel to allow space for the crown. Impressions or imprints of your teeth are then taken and sent to a trusted Australian dental laboratory. They typically take 1-2 weeks to construct the perfect crown for you. Meanwhile our friendly dentists will place a temporary crown to protect your teeth whilst the permanent crown is being made.
