Dental crowns are protective caps that wrap around the whole tooth. They are only really used to replace old crowns or restore heavily decayed teeth. Our team are highly trained to ensure the final aesthetic appearance of the crown will seamlessly match to the adjacent natural teeth.
Due to advancements in technology, our dentists will almost always use all porcelain crowns. Our dentists have had extensive post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry, including restoring teeth with all porcelain restorations, so you know you will get a long lasting, natural looking crown.
I cannot praise Grange Street Dental Practice enough. I am a nervous patient and have found all the staff to be extremely professional and very reassuring. I have always been able to get appointments on the day of calling or the following day. My children have also attended the practice and the staff were brilliant with them.
Mr Rawal and his team are changing my serious fear of any dental intervention, including the hygienist, into confidence. Never before in over sixty-five years of dentistry have I experienced such painless treatment - and my pain threshold is high. All the staff are friendly, informative and reassuring and I can thoroughly recommend the practice on every level.
I visited this dentist recently as an emergency as I had extreme pain in my tooth. After being 2 weeks on antibiotics which weren't working I found this dentist and contacted him immediately. It was late on Saturday evening and it was no bother for him to see me. He was very nice and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed straight away. After taking X-rays he extracted the tooth pain free and so fast. I cannot thank him enough. Would definitely recommend.
The lifespan of a crown depends on how well it is looked after. While the crown itself cannot decay, the edge where the crown joins the tooth can. By keeping this area clean and practicing good oral hygiene you can prolong the lifespan of your dental crown.
Crowns are very strong and usually last over 10 years as long as they are placed with careful planning and maintained well by the patient. Generally after many years, crowns tend to lose their lustre and may need to be placed due to aesthetics reasons.
Black margins are a common aesthetic problem when crowns made of metal underneath ceramic are used. As Our dentists will almost always use all ceramic crowns, this problem will not occur, and the entire tooth will be hidden under your beautiful new crown.
After a careful clinical examination and once the gap has fully formed, our dentist will very conservatively prepare the adjacent tooth and take all the necessary photographs and possibly ask our expert ceramist to attend this appointment to ensure a perfect shade match. After this first appointment a temporary bridge will be fitted, then a week later the final bridge is fitted onto the adjacent tooth.
