A dental crown is a special cap designed to mimic the appearance and function of a natural tooth. We can place a crown over a severely damaged, misshapen, or discoloured tooth to restore it, both cosmetically and functionally.
You may need a dental crown if you have a tooth that has broken down due to decay, an infection, or an accidental injury. For example, a dentist will commonly fit a crown following a root canal treatment.
Crowns are also a cosmetic option for patients with heavy or internal discolouration, enamel wear, or a misshapen tooth. Banning Dental Group has an in-house dental laboratory which allows for quicker treatment and in many cases, crowns are made and fitted on the same day as your treatment. This means that a follow- up appointment for fitting is no longer necessary and saves you having uncomfortable temporaries for about a week which is normally required to make a crown elsewhere.
Caring for your crown is simple. Continue to care for your teeth and gums as you would normally.
Using our on-site milling technology, we produce crowns made of high-grade ceramic material. These crowns can last between 10 and 25 years with proper care.
