Crowns are fitted when a tooth is badly damaged or a root canal filling is in place or when you have dental implants. The crown is created in a laboratory after the dentist has prepared and taken an impression of the problem tooth. They are available in the following materials and we will advise you of all the options during your appointment:
Please give us a call or pop in ( We are based in West Malling, Kent) if you want any advice on porcelain crowns.
You will need to have at least two appointments if you are to have a crown fitted.
If a tooth is weakened or cracked through previous tooth decay.
Please refer to our price list page.
No, we remove as little as possible of you original tooth substance, with veneers we can sometimes do virtually no drilling at all and place an eggshell veneer or porcelain over the existing teeth.
No, we use high intensity short acting local anaesthetics when needed. Rarely a tooth with deep decay can need a root filling.
Any tooth can need root filling, even if crowned. This is only done if it is really necessary.
