Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

At Weybridge Dental Practice we specialise in fitting dental crowns to those who need to improve the appearance or functionality of their teeth. Dental crowns are similar to veneers, but cover the entire surface of the tooth, whereas veneers do not. They create a natural looking cover, and this ensures the results look real. There’s no worry of teeth looking false or fake. Dental crowns can be made from a range of different materials, each of which has its own unique properties. If you are interested in having dental crowns fitted, the Weybridge Dental Practice team can offer their help and recommendations.

Why Are Dental Crowns Used?

There are a number of different reasons as to why you may need dental crowns, which has made them a very popular dental treatment. As a range of dental problems can be hidden with dental crowns, a lot of people are choosing them. Dental crowns can:

  • Protect a tooth from breaking, especially it if has had restorative work.
  • Protect a tooth that is broken, cracked or chipped.
  • Restore a tooth that has suffered damage to the surface.
  • Restore a tooth that has suffered damage to its function.
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth or group of teeth.
  • Provide support to dental bridges, gaps in teeth, fractured teeth and teeth that are not stable.

How Are Dental Crowns Fitted?

Though some people assume that having crowns fitted is a stressful and daunting experience, it doesn’t have to be. After a thorough assessment and consultation with the Weybridge Dental Practice experts, you will be able to ask any questions or queries. This assessment will include dental x rays, so we can really see where the dental crowns will be best placed.

To prepare the tooth that’s having the crown fitting, we will numb it under local anaesthetic. It is shaped and prepared to ensure there’s space for the dental crown to fit securely. Then, the crown is made to fit this space specifically. Whilst you are waiting for the crown to be created, we will fit a temporary crown to ensure you can still use your teeth properly.

Once the crown is created, you will come back in and we will fit the permanent crown. You may be asked back for a review a short while after the dental crown has been fitted. This is so we can examine the crown and check it is comfortable, functioning and secure.
