A dental crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that is placed over a tooth.

When cemented into place, a crown fully encases the visible portion of the tooth that lies above the gum line. Dental crown treatment in Glasgow restores a tooth’s shape, size, appearance, and strength.

Why do I need a dental crown?

You may need a dental crown to:

  • Cover a tooth after a root canal
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Restore a fractured or broken tooth
  • Cover a misshaped or discoloured tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth
  • Replacement of a failed existing crown

What are the pros and cons of different types of crowns?

Porcelain-fused to metal crowns are affordable and strong, but the metal can begin to show through. Metal crowns are typically placed on the premolar and molars due to their durability.

Ceramic crowns are aesthetically appealing, but not as robust. They are typically fitted toward the front of the mouth.

Gold crowns are strong, but more expensive than other crowns.

What does a dental crown procedure entail?

Your Glasgow dentist prepares the tooth and sends a moulded impression to a dental lab to fabricate your restoration. A fitted, temporary crown is fitted to protect the tooth until your custom-made crown is ready.

At your second visit in, the permanent crown is cemented in place.

What about aftercare?

Your dentist will provide you with information about caring for your new crown. Brushing, flossing and using interdental cleaners (dental brushes) can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Avoid chewing ice and hard foods.

How long does a crown last?

Treatments for crowns in Glasgow should last for 5 to 8 eight years but can last longer with good oral hygiene and regular dental exams and professional cleanings.

Avoid damaging habits like fingernail biting and teeth grinding to prolong the life of your crown.

Had my tooth implant over 3 years ago here. Never had any issues with it. It’s not a visible tooth (far right at the very back) so not a big issue for cosmetic reasons but I eat more on that…
