Dental Ceramic Crowns

Book Today.

Ceramic dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps made of porcelain or ceramic materials that are used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth. A crown is designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and function.

The process of getting a ceramic dental crown typically involves the following steps:

  • Evaluation: Your dentist will evaluate the tooth and determine if a crown is the appropriate treatment option. If a crown is needed, they will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping the tooth to accommodate the crown.
  • Impressions or dental scan: The dentist will then take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a custom-made crown that fits your tooth perfectly.
  • Temporary Crown: While the permanent crown is being made, the dentist will place a temporary crown over the prepared tooth to protect it.
  • Crown Placement: Once the permanent crown is ready, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the new crown over the prepared tooth. They will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the crown fits comfortably and looks natural.

Ceramic dental crowns offer several benefits compared to other materials, including:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Ceramic crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth.
  2. Durability: Ceramic crowns are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.
  3. Biocompatibility: Ceramic materials are biocompatible, meaning that they are unlikely to cause any allergic reactions or irritation in the mouth.
  4. Stain Resistance: Ceramic crowns are highly resistant to staining and discoloration, making them ideal for restoring front teeth.

Overall, ceramic dental crowns are an effective and aesthetically pleasing option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth, and they offer several benefits over other materials. However, it’s essential to discuss all available options with your dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
