Realign Your Smile with Dental CrownsPosted by Fabio on Tuesday, Apr 24, 2018
Dental crowns are great for giving you a boost of confidence and restoring your natural smile. If you’ve been wondering about what crowns could do for you, let London Dental Smiles help.
We offer a range of both private and NHS treatments to help you get your smile back! Here is a guide to what dental crowns are, and how they can benefit you in your everyday life.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a great way to repair broken or weakened teeth. It is essentially a tooth-shaped cap that covers your original tooth; it will either cover the top of the tooth, or completely encircle it. This can increase the strength of damaged or broken teeth.
Dental crowns are usually made from a number of different materials, including porcelain, gold or metal alloy. At London Dental Smiles, we make all of these crowns so we can tailor the crown type to best suit your needs.
The crowns themselves are usually made by preparing the shape of the crown and then creating a mould; this will then be given to the dental technician to create.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
A dental crown can restore your tooth back to its original shape, size, and colour. The crown that surrounds the tooth helps to make it strong again, so if you suffer from decayed or badly broken teeth, then they can be re-strengthened with dental crowns.
A dental crown can also help to cover up an unusually shaped tooth, close spaces between teeth, cover up a stain, correct minor positions or retractions of the teeth, and more! They help improve the general appearance of your teeth which will give you the confidence to smile again.
Dental crowns are created to match your other teeth as closely as possible, this may be different tooth coloured shades blended together to best match your own natural teeth. However, your crown may feel different at first, and for some people it can take some time to get used to. If you feel any adjustments are required, you simply just need to ask us!
