DENTAL CROWN

What is a Crown?
It is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

A crown is sometimes known as a Cap. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, weakened, decayed, root treated teeth or teeth that have a very large filling.

A crown could be used to improve the appearance of a discoloured filling.

 

Types of Crowns

  1. Ceramic — These are used for restoring front teeth, and are popular in this area for their ability to blend with your natural tooth color. The crown is made of a porcelain-based material.
  2. Porcelain-fused to metal – This crown provides a stronger bond than regular porcelain because it is connected to a metal structure. It's also extremely durable.
  3. Gold alloys – This crown is a mix of gold, copper and other metals. In addition to providing a strong bond to the tooth, it doesn't fracture, nor does it wear away the tooth itself.
  4. Base metal alloys – This crown is made up of non-noble metals that are highly resistant to corrosion, and make for a very strong crown. It also requires the least amount of healthy tooth to be removed prior to fitting.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

I have been a patient here for 10 years and regretfully leaving due to relocation across the border to Suffolk. During this time I have received excellent treatment from the dentist, their assistant, reception staff and the hygenist and their assistant. I have had some major dental work undertaken and given that I was cautious of dentists given previous experience, I can't recommend Friends Dental practice enough. I have recommended the practice to others on many occasions. Whilst I am pleased to be relocating to Suffolk, I am sad to be losing such a good dentist! But hey, if I can't find another good dentist then I will be back every six months!

I had to have a lot of work done to my teeth, as 39 years since I last visited a dentist. Everyone were so kind and helpful. I now have a good smile again and eating is so much better . Brilliant service in every respect, thank you so much.

Very welcoming friendly & pleasant staff on arrival & check in at reception. The Dentist & assistant were very welcoming in the surgery and worked well together. Explained everything to me, & my options & prices of treatment. Didn't feel pressured at all, as I have previously been elsewhere. Treatment I received was faultless, both in the surgery & at reception & everything completed smoothly & confidently. Highly recommended & very pleased I changed practice.

Always had a phobia of the dentist since school. But have been going to Friends dental for 4 years and always see the same smiling dentist. Not like a previous dentists when there was a different dentist every 6 months.
Now I walk into the surgery with confidence and I even get a free sample of toothpaste for being a good boy!
