Tooth Crown Cost

When Are Dental Crowns, Dental Bridges Or Veneers Necessary?

Dental crowns are used to protect or restore damage to teeth. They go over the underlying tooth to keep it safe. Here are some uses for them:

  • Crowns restore the structural integrity of teeth that have decay covering more than half of their surface. 
  • Permanent crowns can reinforce a worn-down or cracked tooth.
  • A temporary dental crown can strengthen a weakened tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.
  • A crowned tooth can correct tooth misalignment or bite. 

Crowns are used in teeth restorations that don't involve complete extraction. If the entire tooth has to be removed, a Dental Implant is used instead.

Types of Dental Crowns

What is a Tooth Crown?

A crown is like a “helmet” that is placed on the tooth, which provides protection by reducing the risk of the tooth breaking. Crowns are typically ceramic crowns or porcelain crowns designed like natural teeth, but metal crowns such as golden teeth exist as well.

Crowns can be joined together to form a dental bridge, which can replace multiple missing teeth and restore function.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridge to restore natural tooth functions

A dental bridge is made of two or more artificial teeth that are used to fill the gap between the surrounding teeth. They are anchored down by the adjacent teeth.

A dental bridge may be necessary to:

  • Replace multiple missing teeth that are adjacent to each other.
  • Restore a patient’s ability to speak and chew.
  • Prevent the shifting of remaining teeth into the position of missing teeth.

What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are meant to improve the aesthetics of a patient's teeth. They are primarily used for cosmetic purposes to enhance the shape, size, and overall appearance of teeth. 

Veneers may be necessary to:

  • Restore discoloured, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth.

  • Close large gaps between teeth.

What Type Of Crowns Are Available?

Depending on the position of the tooth you are replacing, or your general preference, you may choose crowns that are porcelain fused to metal, or full porcelain. 

Dental Crown Procedure

Step 1: 

Diagnostic imaging (X-ray) is used to assess the health of your teeth and oral cavity.

Step 2: 

Your dentist will begin by administering local anaesthesia to the region of the affected tooth to make sure the tooth is numb so that the treatment will be pain-free. Any existing decay is removed, and the tooth’s natural crown is reduced, to make space for the artificial crown, bridge, or veneer.

Step 3: 

A digital scan is taken of your teeth in order to make an artificial crown, bridge, or veneer. Your dentist will also discuss the appropriate colour for your artificial crown, bridge, or veneer at this stage.

Step 4: 

While your permanent artificial crown, bridge, or veneer is being made, your dentist will place a temporary crown over your prepared tooth to protect it. 

Step 5: 

At your second appointment, your dentist will remove your temporary filling before cementing the permanent crown, bridge, or veneer over your prepared tooth, making adjustments for proper bite where necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

How long do crowns, bridges, and veneers last?

While this differs between patients, the average lifespan of a crown, bridge, or veneer is approximately 10 to 15 years.

Does installing a tooth crown hurt?

The procedure does not hurt. Tooth crown installation uses local anaesthesia to numb the area before shaping the tooth, and you won't feel anything in the process.
