Dental Crown Auckland
Teeth can age too and over the years, fillings, infections, decay, and even certain chewing habits can damage them. When a tooth breaks down, a dental crown can be placed over a tooth to protect it from fracturing further. These tooth crowns can also be used to protect teeth after a root canal treatment or to replace badly shaped and discoloured teeth.
Dental crown procedure
Treatment is usually carried out over two appointments and involves preparing the tooth, so the crown can properly fit on it. Your dentist will also take impressions of your tooth and send those out to a laboratory to create a custom-made permanent tooth crown, which is then cemented into place during your second visit.
Tooth crown options
There are a variety of tooth crown materials you can use, including metal and ceramic crowns. The durability and longevity of the crown depends on the material you choose. You can also get crowns that consist of a porcelain exterior with a metal framework supporting it. Our Auckland dentists will gladly discuss all the available options and can help you find the right treatment for your teeth.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis used to replace one or several missing teeth. It works by joining artificial teeth permanently to the closest teeth or implants.
