Exploring the Essentials of Dental Crowns

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap, which is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, and enhance its appearance. Serving as a protective covering, it encases a tooth, reducing the risks of cracking or damage.

Why opt for the Health Hub?

The Health Hub offers state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology, and experienced professionals dedicated to providing personalised care. Crowns are designed and materials are chosen to best suit your needs and the longevity of the tooth, whether they may be gold or ceramic crowns, the Health Hub has your needs covered.

Types and Lifespan of Dental Crowns

Ceramic crowns (porcelain fused to metal) and gold crowns are prevalent choices, with gold being more durable and ceramic offering a more natural appearance, often preferred for front teeth. “How long do crowns last?” is a common query, with the lifespan of a crown depending on multiple factors, including oral hygiene and personal habits. However, with meticulous care, crowns can last well over 10 years, and possibly even longer.

Advantages of Choosing a Dental Crown at the Health Hub

  • Restoration and Enhancement: Dental crowns restore the functionality and ceramic crowns enhance the appearance of damaged or discoloured teeth.
  • Durability and Protection: They are long-lasting and protect weak teeth from further breakage.
  • Personalised and Precise: Each crown procedure at the Health Hub is customised, ensuring a precise fit and ideal function.
  • Comprehensive Consultation and Care: The Health Hub team provides in-depth consultations, guiding patients through the entire process and addressing any concerns related to crown cost, durability, and maintenance.

Dental Crown Journey at the Health Hub

A dental crown journey with the Health Hub involves three visits. The first is a consultation to ensure which crown is best for you, followed by a second longer appointment, where the tooth is cut back and prepared for the crown. A digital scan or impressions are taken to ensure a perfect fit, and a temporary crown is placed. The third visit involves placing the permanent crown, with attention to colour and fit before cementation.
