Dental Crowns or caps are they are sometimes called are fitted over the top of a damaged or broken tooth to protect it from further damage or improve the aesthetics of a smile. A crown is typically made from porcelain by our master technicians and they look just like natural teeth. Crowns can also be made from metal, gold or even porcelain fused to metal. The choice of material for a crown is often based on budget, the strength required and position in the mouth.
Crowns can hold cracked teeth together and support bridges, and they are often fitted over teeth that have had a root canal or dental implant treatment. They can also cover discoloured, and worn teeth to improve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth.
Crowns typically last between 5-20 years depending on how you look after them. You should look after your crowns just like natural teeth by keeping them clean (brushing and flossing), seeing a hygienist and having regular checkups with your dentist.
“I just want to say that Komal Bhabra has been absolutely fantastic in their understanding of my anxiety condition, so much so, they have pretty much removed my anxiety and fear of visiting the dentist completely. Since seeing Komal and Uma I no longer have any pains or issues with my teeth (fingers crossed), but more remarkably, I am able to sit in the once-dreaded dentist chair without any anxiety.
They are both extremely wonderful members of staff and I think they should be commended for their understanding and support to people like myself who are sometimes severely disabled by our anxiety conditions”
