Dental Crowns at Praxis Dental

Illustration of dental crownLife happens, and sometimes you can’t stop damage from impacting your teeth. Whether your tooth has experienced trauma, root canal therapy, the ageing process or decay, a dental crown may be the ideal solution to restore your smile. Often, we may recommend these tooth coverings in conjunction with other services, such as veneers or whitening, to enhance your look.

A crown is a completely natural-looking cap that covers the tooth. It’s appropriate in cases where a filling isn’t large enough to take care of the damage, and you want an aesthetically pleasing solution. We utilise strong porcelain to create the cap so it’s durable and long-lasting.

What to Expect

Once you’ve had a consultation with Dentist Dr Ishita Puri and determined that you require a crown, we’ll do an extensive examination to understand the damage present.

While some dental practices use an imprint from a dental mould to make a crown, we’ll take high-quality impressions using the Mediscanner digital scanner. This scanner uses the latest technology for digital impressions. Next, the scans will be sent to our laboratory, which has a superior method of creating crowns. The lab has various machines to create these tooth coverings in the way that will best suit your needs.

Other dental offices may use 3D printers with subtractive printing, which essentially takes a block of material and etches away what is needed. Some practices use the other method CEREC. With this method, a crown can be made in 2-3 hours.

At the lab, your tooth covering is created, polished and glazed for a luminous look. Your cap is fabricated layer by layer for extreme accuracy and to match seamlessly with your smile. We will give you a temporary restoration, while the permanent crown is created in the lab.

Once your crown is ready, it will be sent back to our practice, and you’ll return to have it cemented on. We guarantee that our crowns will last for many years.
