Dental Crowns in Horsham

When a tooth has become functionally weak and is likely to break down or fracture despite our best efforts with filling material, a crown may be the most suitable option. The benefit of a crown is that the whole tooth is protected and supported. Modern materials and skilled professionals allow us to create or recreate the desired aesthetics to a remarkable degree of accuracy in terms of shape and colour. Dental Crowns are laboratory-made “caps” that fit the remaining part of a prepared tooth.

Crowns can be made with a variety of different materials. Here are some of the most popular options:

Porcelain Bonded Crowns: These crowns are made with a metal base, including a porcelain cover on top to match the shade of your enamel with the neighbouring teeth.

All-Ceramic Crowns: Metal-free Ceramic materials. In some circumstances, these can be more beneficial over the traditional, porcelain bonded crowns. All-Ceramic crowns offer natural-looking dental restorations that are perfectly colour-matched to the surrounding teeth.

Gold alloy crowns: Gold is still commonly within dentistry. It’s a very biocompatible material; dentists today frequently combine gold with other metals, such as palladium, nickel, or chromium. This increases the strength and durability of the crown as well as reducing its cost.

Overall, for your comfort and appearance, a temporary crown is used in the period when the permanent crown is being made. Should you need a crown, your dentist will advise you on the type and shade you will need to meet your specific requirements. Preparing a tooth for a crown requires typically two visits to the dentist. The first step involves examining and preparing the tooth, and the second consists of the placement of the permanent crown.
