Dental Crowns Monmouth

A crown is a fixed unit that that replaces the lost portion of the tooth which is visible in the mouth. They are used to restore a broken, weakened or heavily filled tooth.
Dental Bridges can be used to fill a space or gap in your mouth as long as you have a healthy natural tooth of your own that can be used to hold the bridge in place.

Improving your smile doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Dental crowns are a great way to strengthen and improve the appearance of your teeth without dentures, which can be uncomfortable and costly to keep replacing over time. Plus, dental crowns are long-lasting and don’t need to be replaced or fixed as often as dental veneers. The Face Space in Monmouth offers dental crowns to help you repair and replace damaged teeth, as well as protect your healthy teeth from further damage. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our dentist, or learn more about dental crowns below!

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is an artificial tooth that’s fitted over the existing tooth to strengthen or restore it after damage from trauma or decay. Although dental crowns can serve a cosmetic purpose, they also play an important role in protecting the natural tooth from fracturing. 

 

What Are Dental Crowns Usually Made Of?

Dental crowns are typically made of porcelain, gold, or sometimes a combination of the two. Porcelain is attractive and resists stains well. Gold retains its shine longer than most materials, so it’s a great choice for those who are concerned about discolouration over time. Crowns can be placed over your tooth as a protective layer to prevent further damage, as well as restore the shape and size of the tooth.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

Here are a couple of circumstances that can occur that will cause you to seek dental crown treatment:

  • Badly decayed tooth
  • A large filling
  • A broken or chipped tooth
  • Discolouration or alignment issues

If a crown has been poorly fitted by another dentist, The Face Space will be happy to rectify the issue. 

What to Expect When Getting A Dental Crown

Crowns can be placed over your tooth as a protective layer to prevent further damage, as well as restore the shape and size of the tooth. Here’s what you can expect when getting a dental crown in Monmouth. To get the best results from the procedure, it’s important to have healthy gums and a strong foundation for the new crown. Your dentist will start by numbing the area around your tooth with a local anaesthetic before taking an impression of your teeth. This will help them create a custom-fitted mould for the new crown. They will then remove any decayed or damaged parts of your existing tooth using small tools and precision instruments until they have created enough space for the new crown.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Dental crowns last for many years, sometimes even a lifetime. The longevity of your dental crowns depends on the quality of materials used and your oral hygiene practices. At The Face Space, we use the best materials to craft dental crowns with longevity in mind; additionally, our dentist also provides education on how to take care of your mouth and teeth as well as what causes tooth decay. Mouth related habits that will hinder dental crowns longevity and should be avoided are:

  • Grinding your teeth
  • Biting your fingernails
  • Chewing ice
  • Opening packaging with your teeth

FAQ Dental Crown?

Some patients may be worried about how much it will hurt to get a dental crown. However, the process is painless but you might experience a little discomfort. Luckily, there are many different types of anaesthesia available, to make sure your procedure is as painless as possible. It’s important to remember that if you experience any kind of discomfort during your procedure, tell your dentist right away so they can adjust their technique accordingly.

It’s your choice whether you want to be numbed or not. The dentist or hygienist may recommend that you have a local anaesthetic applied if they notice you have sensitive teeth, or if you’re nervous about having a permanent crown fitted.
