Do You Need a Dental Crown?

Damaged teeth can be a big pain. They can also make you lose your confidence in your smile. Change all that by restoring your teeth’s shape, size, strength, and look with Battery Hill Dental’s custom-fitted dental crowns.


What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are caps that are placed over a damaged tooth. The cap, or crown, is tooth-shaped and is used to enhance a tooth’s appearance, as well as to strengthen it or prevent further damage.

Permanent dental crowns can last for many years with proper care. They come in different materials to suit your need and budget. The most long-lasting are the stainless steel dental crowns because they don’t chip or break. They are usually used for molars and are the preferred choice in paediatric dentistry.

Meanwhile, there are tooth-coloured crowns made of ceramic or porcelain. While they make the restoration look seamless because they can be colour-matched to the rest of your teeth, they tend to chip and break. They can also more easily wear out compared to metal crowns. This is why there are some porcelain crowns that are fused with stainless steel for added strength.

Lastly, you can also get resin crowns, made of a variety of composite materials. The most affordable option, these resin crowns can also be designed to look, feel, and function like real teeth. However, they tend to wear out and fracture more than any other material.

If you have a weakened tooth due to breaks, cracks, or a recently filled cavity, a dental crown can help strengthen and preserve it. There are also instances wherein a dental crown may be needed to hold a dental bridge securely in place or cover a dental implant. Your trusted dentists may also recommend a dental crown to cover misshapen and discoloured teeth or prevent tooth decay. From tooth damage and decay to improving your tooth’s appearance, dental crowns help protect your teeth and ensure that you have a healthy, beautiful smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental crowns last?

With proper care, dental crowns can last for a very long time, from 10 to 15 years or even longer. Still, it’s best to visit your dentist from time to time for checkups or for any necessary adjustment.

Are dental crowns painful?

We will use local anaesthesia to prepare the tooth before we fit it with a crown. At Battery Hill Dental, we want to make sure you have the best, most comfortable experience, and having a crown will feel like you’re only having a filling done.

Will a crown feel different or uncomfortable?

Having a new crown on your tooth can feel different at first. However, dental crowns are custom-designed to mimic the look, feel, strength, and sometimes colour, of your teeth. After a few days, you’ll see that it feels normal and soon, you won’t even notice that it’s there.

How do you care for my dental crown?

Your dental crown will be like the rest of your teeth, so proper and regular dental hygiene is necessary to clean and maintain your crown as well as the rest of your teeth.
