5.0

At Ringway Dental it is our aim to help repair damaged or decayed teeth wherever possible and place every crown we treat with great care and skill.

What is a crown?

Crowns can be used to help repair and protect a tooth that has been otherwise damaged due to decay, injury, or in some cases, a filling that has unfortunately deteriorated. They are also occasionally used in conjunction with another treatment such as a bridge or a root canal treatment in order to ensure the full function of the tooth is restored.

What are crowns made of?

Crowns are most commonly made of porcelain, Zirconia, or a precious metal such as gold. Porcelain is one of the most popular options when fitting crowns as it offers a highly durable surface that is also able to naturally mimic the tooth. Not only can it be colour matched to the rest of the teeth, but it also reflects light in the same way as the natural surface of the tooth.

How are crowns fitted?

The fitting for a crown usually happens over two appointments. At the first appointment we will remove any of the decayed, damaged or weakened parts of the tooth being treated, and prepare it for the crown. We will then take an impression of the tooth and fit you with a temporary crown.

There is usually then a wait of up to two weeks while the crown is made for you at our dental laboratory. Crowns are designed and made for each patient, and once yours is ready, we will fit it and shape it to your tooth exactly. It will then be cemented into place.

What is the recovery like?

The area around the tooth being treated is likely to feel extra sensitive for a few days after the treatment. You may experience some soreness and we will advise you to be gentle when brushing your teeth. Once any soreness or sensitivity has receded you can proceed to care for your crown as you would your natural tooth – with twice daily brushing for two minutes, regular flossing, and frequent dental check-ups.
