At Horsley Dental we regularly use Dental Crowns to restore teeth that have become significantly weakened by decay, fracture or a large filling. These are tooth-shaped, porcelain ‘shells’ that cover the affected tooth to restore it to its original strength, size and shape. Thanks to the latest technological advances, Dental Crowns can now feel and look like natural teeth, making it a very effective and popular treatment.
Dental Crowns are a great way to restore damaged teeth and protect them from any further damage. They can be securely cemented into place and are very strong and stable. This high level of durability means that they should last for many years. They can also be coloured to match your natural teeth, allowing smiles to be restored to their original glory.
At the initial consultation appointment your dentist will assess if Dental Crowns are appropriate for you. The procedure will be fully explained and you will have the opportunity to discuss the results you would like to achieve and ask any questions you may have. After the tooth has been fully assessed and prepared, an impression can be taken to allow the new, bespoke crown to be created to the exact shape and colour required. While the crown is being made, a temporary one can be fitted to protect the exposed tooth. When the new crown is ready, a further appointment is arranged where it can be carefully fitted into place, cleaned and polished.
