Custom-made, tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to improve its strength, shape, and appearance.
At Spring Dental Surgery in Hull, we understand the importance of maintaining the health and function of your natural teeth, and sometimes a dental crown may be the best solution for restoring a damaged or decayed tooth. A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to improve its strength, shape, and appearance.
Dental crowns are typically recommended for teeth that have been damaged or decayed to the point where a filling is not enough to restore the tooth’s function and shape. They can also be used to support a dental bridge, cover a dental implant, or improve the appearance of a discolored or misshaped tooth.
Your dental crown will be fitted over two appointments. This is because an impression of your tooth is required to create the dental crown.
On your first visit, your dentist will take an impression of your tooth which is then sent to a lab. When you return, your dentist will fix the dental crown in place. Your crown is held in place by a type of dental cement. It covers the entire visible part of your tooth above your gum line. This cement may wear down over time, so it’s important to attend regular checkup appointments to make sure this doesn’t come loose.
Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential to maintaining the longevity of your dental crowns. Our team will provide you with instructions on how to care for your crowns and will schedule regular check-ups to ensure that your crowns are functioning properly.
Don’t let a damaged or decayed tooth affect your smile and your ability to chew properly. A dental crown from Spring Dental Surgery in Hull can restore the function and appearance of your tooth.
