Do you have damage to your teeth or decay? Dental crowns can be a great solution to restoring the tooth! For full and normal use when the damage is too far along to warrant a filling, a dental crown could be the option, making you able to avoid having to have the tooth removed and still being able to use the tooth as normal.
Often the next stage after a dental crown is to have the tooth removed and replaced with a dental bridge, but if you choose to have a crown you can still make use of what is left of the tooth and the root. A dental crown simply caps your own natural tooth, encasing it with the crown acting as the tooth so you are able to continue using is as normal without sensitivity.
Crowns are a great way to keep your mouth healthy and working properly, if you think you could benefit from a dental crown that looks and feels natural, read on for more information-
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a tooth shaped ‘cap’ that is designed to fit perfectly over a weakened tooth or to top a dental implant. The crown restores the tooth shape, size, appearance and strength so the tooth can be used just like normal!
How is a Dental Crown Fitted?
Crowns are cemented into place to fully encase the part of the tooth that lies above the gum line. At Revitta we can provide custom made porcelain crowns for patients in a single visit, making having a crown fitted fuss free!
What are one day crowns?
At Revitta we offer crowns known as ‘one day’ or ‘one hour’ crowns. We use a technology called CEREC that means crowns can be created and fitted in just one appointment. Previously crowns would need to be made off site after impressions were taking, meaning it could take up to two weeks to have a crown fitted, with the patient in the meantime wearing a temporary crown and having to undergo more treatment.
We are able to craft and fit excellent quality crowns, that are durable and fit naturally in the mouth in just one visit.
