Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Teeth that have been chipped or cracked need to be repaired as soon as is possible. Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment need to be protected. Teeth that have sustained some sort of trauma need to be protected from further decay or damage. This is where a tooth crown comes in.

Dental crowns have become the standard for the protection of repaired teeth. They are durable, offer a wholly natural look, and will help to keep you smiling for many good years to come.


What are crowns?

Get results you love

A dental crown is a custom tooth cap. It simply fits over the top of a tooth that has suffered from severe decay or damage. Perhaps you have teeth that are misshapen? A tooth crown can give you that even and straight smile that you are looking for.
Crowns offer protection and strength for those damaged teeth. They allow for normal function to be restored.

Today’s high-tech crown solutions offer results that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

What are crowns best used for?

Crowns are the ideal choice for providing protection to teeth that have undergone significant restoration and repair. They are best used for any tooth that has been chipped, cracked, or repaired. Root canal treatments are a great way to preserve a natural tooth, but they may result in significant loss of the tooth structure. Placing a tooth cap over the repaired tooth will offer protection and restore functionality.
A front tooth crown will offer a wholly natural look. Whether it’s used to cover a crooked or misshapen tooth or to disguise a chipped tooth.

What are the types of crowns available?

There are several types of dental crowns available. When you are getting a crown on a tooth, the type of crown that you get will be based upon the location of the crown and the individual needs of each patient.

  • The most commonly used crown is the porcelain fused to metal crown. These are often fitted onto molars, as they are a strong crown that can withstand the chewing force that’s placed on molars.
  • The crown consists of a metal base which is then fused to porcelain. This gives it that natural look that patients are after, while still offering the strength that patients need.
  • There are metal free options available such as zirconia and Emax crowns.
  • They are mainly used to repair front teeth, but zirconia is also a strong alternative to porcelain fused to metal crowns to restore molar teeth.
What is the procedure for getting a crown?

tooth repair-dublin
It typically takes two appointments for a crown to be placed. It’s important to note that is there is damage to the tooth it should be repaired prior to the placement of the crown. Chipped tooth repair or cracked tooth repair do not typically take very long. Once the teeth have been repaired then an impression of the tooth will be made. These impressions will help to ensure that the crown keeps your bite as comfortable and as natural as is possible.Once the impressions are sent off to the laboratory, the crown will be made.
A temporary crown is often set in place to protect the tooth. They are not meant to be permanent and will not offer the durability of the permanent crown.Once the permanent crown has been made, you’ll return to the dentist chair to have it fitted. Small adjustments might be made in order to ensure a comfortable bite. Once both you and your dentist feel comfortable with the crown placement, it will be bonded in place.
There should be little to no pain during the procedure, but you can ask for a numbing agent if you feel uncomfortable.

Crowns are used as a means of protecting damaged or restored teeth. There are few disadvantages to getting crowns. They offer a way to restore your smile while also protecting your healthy teeth from further decay and damage.
Most patients find that there are only advantages to be had when they get a tooth crown. Not only will the crown ensure protection for the tooth, but it’ll restore a bite that may be been off due to a reluctance to chew on that side of the mouth.
Crowns can last a lifetime with proper care. They can sustain damage just like natural teeth can. If your crown is cracked or loosened, it’s important that you make an appointment with the clinic to get it repaired. This will help to avoid the potential for further damage to your natural tooth.

  • review rating 1  Erika is the worst dentist Ever ! I had an implant and root canal treatment with her and after that extensive bridge based on that. Over 3.5 years after that , i was kept in the dark coming back to her for check ups, no one ever told me how serious problem i have because of the treatment i have received from her, My gums were constantly swollen and i had pain around due to bridge. She kept sending me off with prescriptions which worked few months. Recently, i went to another dentist and he took a panoramic X- Ray which clearly shows that the implant was a huge failure and there was a huge bone inflammation around the implant and as a result of that the bone around has dissolved. There was no support for the implant as it was sitting on the lap of the bone. The root canal treatment was a also a huge failure as the x-ray showed a huge absence around the root and my new dentist could only remove both teeth as a result of this i lost the whole bridge I therefore do not want to recommend Erika to anyone PLease think twice

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.
