Fast, effective dental crown repairs tooth at South East London dentist

10 / 12 / 2009

As a practical solution to an unattractive and sometimes painful dental problem, a dental crown is hard to beat. A well designed and fitted dental crown is an elegant and aesthetically pleasing protective barrier against further dental damage or simply a restorative cosmetic device used to improve the smile. Either way, dental crowns serve an extremely important function in modern cosmetic dentistry.

A dental crown itself is a porcelain tooth cap that sits over the top of the damaged tooth, covering all parts of the tooth exposed above the gum line. It is cemented into position using composite resin bonding and acts as an enamel-like protective barrier against further damage or decay. Crowns are commonly used to replace parts of cracked or broken teeth; teeth that suffer from dental decay and unstable fillings; and teeth that have recently been treated with a root canal. In all these cases, the crown is the last stage of the restorative treatment.

Modern crowns are usually made from porcelain, with some metal still being used in non-visible crowns. It is now possible to manufacture the crown from a single piece of porcelain in a matter of minutes. This not only increases the strength of the crown itself as there are no fragile joints, but it also reduces treatment and production time helping to keep costs down.

Make an appointment with a South East London dentist if you think you have a tooth that could benefit from a dental crown. It could mean an end to the pain of dental trauma and the restoration of your smile in one straightforward procedure.
