Why Choose Dental Crowns?

Missing or broken teeth can cause many different problems such as eating difficulties and dental hygiene issues, as well as impaired speech and migrating teeth.

Occasionally, they can also progress to future dental complications which can cause pain and become expensive to fix.

Broken teeth can also lead to problems with confidence, self-esteem, and can be responsible for a reduced quality of life.

Dental Crowns are an effective and affordable treatment that help to fix, strengthen and improve the appearance of damaged or missing teeth preventing any future dental issues from occurring.

What Are Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a common treatment used to strengthen damaged or broken teeth without looking out of place.

They consist of a small “cap” that is added to the top of the damaged tooth and are usually made from porcelain, however, a variety of different materials are available depending on your individual requirements.

All our dental crowns are made from casts of your original teeth to ensure that they don’t look out of place and are fixed with dental cement to ensure they are permanent.

Commonly Asked Questions

Why do I need a crown after my tooth had a root canal treatment?

After a root canal treatment, the tooth becomes weaker due to the nerve being removed. A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth and reinforces the structure of a weakened tooth.

Should I have crowns or veneers placed on my front teeth for cosmetic appearance?

This is dependent on the position and health of your teeth. A veneer is a thin shell placed on the front surface and a crown is a cap that is placed over the entire tooth. Your dentist can discuss which you will require at your free consultation.

What materials are the crowns made from?

At 3 Dental, our crowns are made in our own high-tech dental laboratory. Your dentist will choose the material best suited to you for aesthetics and function. We provide EMAX and Zirconia crowns. EMAX crowns are layered with porcelain and have an excellent strength. Zirconia crowns are made of pure zirconia which is an extremely strong material.

Can I whiten my crowns?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to whiten dental crowns. Before placing dental crowns, you can whiten the rest of your teeth and the shade of your crowns can be matched to your whitened teeth.

Your crowns, like your teeth, can stain from smoking, red wine and coffee – a visit to one of our hygienists for a polish will help remove any stains.
