Dental crowns offer a cosmetic dental solution to repairing broken, cracked or worn teeth.

Dental crowns are essentially like a protective jacket that sits over your teeth. In the past most crowns were made from metal, with advancements in this area we now have ceramic crowns. They offer a more aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting dental solution.

You will need a crown when a tooth is extremely eroded, very discoloured or heavily filled. A crown will restore and protect the remaining tooth.

As well as this, a crown can be used to treat several other dental issues, such as:

  • To straighten teeth
  • To close existing gaps
  • Cover tooth discolouration
  • Repair broken teeth
  • Restore eroded teeth
  • Strengthen teeth

Like dental implants, dental crowns can be used to treat singular teeth or in conjunction with other treatments as part of a larger cosmetic makeover.

When constructing a crown, it is important that it matches your current shade of teeth, allowing it to blend in with your existing set seamlessly. Matching a crown to a current set of teeth isn’t easy work but with great attention to detail, using the latest in cutting-edge digital techniques Salman ensures that your crown is bespoke to match your existing shade.

Like all dental treatments, installing a crown will require careful planning and the procedure needs to be performed perfectly. Salman performs to the highest standard and ensures that all of his work is aimed at providing long term results so that you maintain a natural looking set of teeth for years to come.

Typically, a crown will retain its look and function at its best for 10 to 15 years. After this time, some of its surface shade may dull or its margins may become slightly visible. In these cases though, any replacement treatment is merely optional as opposed to a clinical requirement.
