What is a dental crown

A dental crown is what some people may call a dental cap, and it covers the entire tooth. It is designed to protect the tooth and restore it to its original shape, size and appearance. A crown, or cap, when cemented into place completely hides the original natural crown and looks and feels exactly like a real tooth. It provides extra stability to teeth that have very large fillings and can also be used to improve the colour of a tooth.

At Healthy Smile Centre, we understand how important it is to keep your smile in top condition. We also understand the importance of minimal work to maintain that smile. If a crown in Erskineville is all that is needed to complete a smile, then that is all that shall be done.

How is a crown applied?

A crown in Erskineville is typically completed in two visits. During the first visit, we will need to remove some material from the existing tooth in order to make room for the crown and also so the surrounding teeth remain comfortable. If you are receiving a crown in Erskineville because your tooth has become weakened due to decay, we may have to remove extra tooth material that has become infected. Next, we will take an impression of the damaged tooth in order to have the dental crown carefully crafted. As a final step to this visit, the dentist will fit the affected tooth with a temporary crown until the next visit where the crown will be cemented into place and shaped into a comfortable fit.

After that, the crown should be treated in the same way you would care for your natural teeth. A regular oral hygiene routine is coupled with dental check-ups should see your crown last for at least a decade, if not longer. They are made from very durable material so the more you care for them, the longer your crowns will last.

Crowns are not just used for aesthetic purposes, although that is a major bonus. We can also use a crown in Erskineville to anchor a bridge or denture.
