A crown is a long-lasting dental restoration that replaces the top of a damaged or weakened tooth that has a healthy base. Dental crowns add strength and prevent further damage to teeth.
Crowns have a natural-looking tooth form that matches the colour and appearance of the surrounding teeth. Your dentist will advise you if a crown is right for you during your initial consultation.
A local anaesthetic will first be administered to numb the area around the tooth.
Damaged and weak parts of the tooth are then removed. Your dentist will then prepare and reshape the base of the tooth, ready to support the new crown.
At Westwood Dental, we use the latest digital dentistry techniques.
For a new crown, a 3D scan conveniently replaces traditional dental impressions. Using CEREC technology we can custom make your crown on-site and complete your treatment in one appointment.
Your new crown is permanently bonded into place, for a comfortable bite and a natural-looking smile.
Dental crowns are generally a long-lasting tooth repair. You can expect a crown to last between 10 and 15 years and sometimes longer, with good dental care.
Over time, crowns can sometimes become dislodged or become uncomfortable. In addition, some patients become unhappy with an existing crown for aesthetic reasons.
A new crown can improve the function and appearance of your teeth and smile. Get in touch with the practice to book a consultation.
