Dental Crowns Treatment
Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild a damaged tooth. as they use a fixed restoration fitted to the remaining part of a prepared tooth or, placed on a Dental Implant. Crowns can also be used to reshape and help realign uneven and slightly crooked teeth. Crowns can drastically improve the appearance of a tooth that has been badly damaged and discoloured by fillings adding to a healthy and vibrant smile.
We at Cheadle us a variety of Crowns for different solutions that our patients can enjoy, Some of them are:
Full Porcelain Crowns
These are particularly recommended for front teeth replacement and Cosmetic Dentistry as they are metal free and have the same texture and feel like natural teeth giving a completely natural look to the replacement tooth/teeth.
Full Porcelain Crowns also ensure there will be no problem with the appearance of a fine dark line of metal at the base of the crown which is known to sometimes occur if the patient suffers from gum recession of any kind. While utilising modern materials, we at Cheadle are able to use crowns that can also be placed anywhere in the mouth.
As part of their construction, a plaster model is made from the impression taken of the prepared tooth. The model is scanned and a frame is designed using the latest in computer dental technology. The computerised milling machine cuts the frame out from a zirconium disc. Porcelain layers are built upon the frame and detail colouring is added.
Porcelain on Metal Crowns
This restoration method is tried and tested and remains one of dentistry’s primary restorations. Often used in the molar regions as they can withstand considerable biting force; these are still the most popular crowns. Using the impression taken by the dentist, a metal thimble base is cast in noble alloy then veneered with layers of porcelain and fired in a kiln fusing the porcelain to the metal thimble.
Depending upon the number of Crowns that may be needed, 5 working days are usually required.
Porcelain on Gold Crowns
One of the oldest applicable crown materials, gold is there to stay as it provides great utility and is particularly used for back teeth restoration. Porcelain fused to gold Crowns are the strongest and longest lasting Crowns because of the inherent strength advantage of a gold base.
