Can you replace my old crowns with a more aesthetic white one?
Yes of course. As long as the tooth is healthy, we can replace old dental crowns with a more aesthetic ones designed to either change or fit in with your smile.
What is the best material to have a crown in?
This depends on where is it is in the mouth. Teeth which will be visible in the smile will need a more aesthetic crown, whilst teeth at the back have to do more chewing and need to be able to withstand this better. Once we have examined your mouth, we will be able to discuss with you the best options!
What is the process?
After some local anaesthetic and some moulds of your mouth, the tooth is prepared for your crown. Once we have prepared the tooth ready for your crown, you will have a personalised temporary crown made to keep the tooth safe while the lab fabricates your crown. Around 2 weeks later, or that day if you are having a cerec crown, the crown will be cemented into place and checked in your mouth.
