A Crown (also known as a 'cap') is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore function and appearance. At Castelnau Dentists we provide a range of Crowns (including Metal Porcelain Crowns, All-Ceramic Crowns and Gold Crowns) so that our patients can chose the right treatment option for them according to their requirements and budget.
A dental crown may be needed:
At Castelnau Dentists, we recommend all-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns which provide better natural colour match than any other crown type and since they do not contain any metal, All-Ceramic Crowns are bio-compatible. This also means there will be no black line at gum level with your new tooth.
With advances in modern dental technology, All-Ceramic Crowns are proven to be as strong and durable as metal porcelain crowns and so they are able to offer patients the best of both worlds - a long lasting and natural looking solution.
Because temporary dental crowns are just that a temporary fix until a permanent crown is ready, we suggest that a few precautions.
On average, dental crowns last between five and 15 years, but this is dependent on the wear the crown is exposed to and how well maintained a patient's oral health.
While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember to continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once a day.
