What is a Crown?

A crown is a porcelain or gold cap that is used to rebuild and strengthen a weak or broken tooth. Crowns can also be used to improve your smile by changing the shape and colour of your existing teeth.

What are Crowns Made of?

If a crown is required for a tooth at the front of your mouth, your Lumino dentist will match the existing colour of your teeth with a porcelain tooth. Sometimes you may choose a lighter colour. Further back in your mouth, a crown can be made of porcelain, however your dentist may recommend a gold crown because of its strength and longevity. Every case is different and your Lumino dentist will discuss all of the options available to you.
 

What is the Procedure to Place a Crown?

All decay and weak areas of a damaged tooth are removed and your dentist takes an impression of the tooth. This impression is sent to the laboratory for the technician to form a model of your tooth. There are many stages to forming the crown and in a few short weeks it is returned to the dental practice. During this time a temporary crown will be cemented onto your tooth to protect it. On the next visit your new crown will be bonded into position and will be ready to use straightaway.

Having a crown fitted can significantly improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. With a Lumino The Dentists crown fitted, you will be able to smile with confidence, content in the knowledge that no-one will be able to tell that your teeth were ever anything less than perfect.
