What are Crowns?

When the tooth structure has become weakened with decay or an existing filling is very large and deteriorated, a dental crown may be necessary.

Furthermore, when teeth have had root canal treatment, it can inherently reduce the strength of it and a crown or onlay may become necessary to protect the tooth and provide it with strength from the forces of biting. Additionally, anterior teeth which have had extensive treatment and need aesthetic improvement can also be replaced with crowns to cosmetically improve them.

This dental restoration is applied to the full surface of the tooth and whilst it can be made in a number of different materials, at Ruh Dental we predominantly use porcelain based crowns which match the colour and shade of the teeth and give the tooth additional strength.

Dental crowns are much more invasive than veneers and require much more tooth adjustment, however tend to be longer lasting and more durable.

The Process

  1. Anaesthetic is placed to make the area numb and as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
  2. Quite often a matrix is taken at the chair-side to create a scaffold to make a temporary crown.
  3. The tooth in question is prepared accordingly.
  4. A putty mould is taken of the prepared tooth and sent to the lab to make.
  5. The lab based crown is then fitted accordingly.

Frequently Asked Questions

When a tooth is heavily filled, has lost a lot of tooth structure, or has become weakened for any reason, the tooth is likely to need a crown. The weakened tooth is shaped and prepared in order for the crown to be placed on top of it. 

This crown is usually made from casted metal and porcelain. Gold crowns are the strongest type, but are not as aesthetic as porcelain type ones. The crown will therefore act to protect the underlying tooth structure and prevent it from fracturing. 

Teeth which have had root canal treatment will have become inherently weaker and are at greater risk of fracture. It is always recommended to have crown placed on a tooth which has had root canal treatment. 

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials. If gold is chosen (for its strength properties), then unfortunately it will appear gold in the mouth. If porcelain is chosen, we will always endeavour to match it to your natural tooth shade.
