Dental crowns dentist in Ajax has revealed how this special procedure can change someone’s life.
Singer Dental’s Ajax dental office say that they feel like they are performing magic on someone’s smile when they are fitting them with dental crowns.
A spokesman said: “A crown is what covers a broken, damaged or decayed tooth. It not only transforms someone smile, but it will help to keep the shape of the patient’s jaw, improve their bite and chewing.
“They are a great solution for fixing the appearance of a damaged tooth. People can choose the material they would like their crown to be. They are usually porcelain or ceramic, but they could also be gold. The crown will sit over the damaged tooth and it will give a greater coverage than a veneer that only covers part of the tooth.
“Some people might need a whole tooth replaced, so a cap or crown can fit over an implant too,” he added.
A crown is usually fitted in two visits to the dental clinic. The first visit is when the dentist will examine the tooth and ensure that it can support a crown. They will assess the size and shape of it. If it is too big, then they will file down the tooth to allow the crown to fit. If it is too small or too damaged, then they will fill out the tooth to allow the cap to fit correctly.
The dentist will then take a plaster mould of the tooth so it can be sent to a lab for the crown to be made to the fit the tooth. The dentist will often fit a temporary crown during the first visit so a patient can carry on with day to day life and eating until the crown is ready.
Two to three weeks later is when the patient will visit the clinic for a second time to have the crown fitted. It is secured in place with special dental grade adhesive.
The spokesman added: “Having a crown fitted should be relatively painless as the dentist will numb the mouth while the work is being carried out. Once fitted, a crown is expected to last between five and 15 years, it just depends on how well the person cleans it and also how they bite and chew. The more wear and tear the crown experiences then the less time it will last.”
The cost of a crown will depend upon the material used. A gold crown can cost between £600 and $2,500. A porcelain crown could cost between $800 and $3,000. Porcelain crowns that are fused to metal are probably one of the cheapest options – between $500 and $1,500.
