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.
My wife Linda introduced me to Adams Dental and since that day I’ve never been afraid to visit the dentist. I was terrified of the dentist from childhood as I’m sure millions of people are but on my first visit they took all the fear away. Adams Dental treat you like you’re part of their family. My smile is a major part of my job and Alex made it easy for me to smile. I’ve recommended Adams Dental to many of my friends and now they’re recommending their friends too.
The fact that we have been patients of Alex Adams for 27 years should speak volumes for the respect we have for him. His easy ‘chair’ manner, the warmth of his personality and the patience he has in applying his dentistry skills all help to make our visits a more than pleasant one.
Alex and his team of dedicated professionals have looked after my family and myself for over 10 years. Their warm approach and advice instil confidence and their exemplary work helps you start any type of day with a winning smile!
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.
