Dental crowns are also known as tooth crowns, porcelain crowns or dental caps – and they work a little bit like caps. Dental crowns cover your tooth, providing multiple benefits, depending on your needs. Today, crowns are incredibly lifelike and almost impossible to detect from your natural teeth.
At our Wagga dentist clinic, dental crowns are created in various materials, depending on the patient’s needs and budget. We can use porcelain, metal, porcelain fused to metal or gold. The most lifelike dental crowns are porcelain crowns, so if you need a crown on a tooth that’s visible when you smile and talk, a porcelain crown may be the best solution for you.
Unlike some clinics, taking an impression for your new crown is easy. There’s no powder, no putty and no invasive (and time-consuming) impressions in your mouth.
At Marketplace Dental, we use one of the newest scanners from Dentsply Sirona, the global leaders in dental equipment. This tiny wand-like device is gently placed in your mouth for a few seconds, creating an incredibly accurate 3D image of your teeth and gums on a nearby computer screen.
It’s quick, easy and fuss-free!
All surgical procedures carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
A dental crown is a cap-like covering of the visible part of a tooth. Dental crowns are used when teeth are old and damaged, badly chipped, badly stained, or have too many fillings. Crowns are also used as replacement teeth for dental implants.
A crown can last anywhere between five and 15 years; however, some dental crowns are sturdier than others, for example, those made of zirconia, and so last longer. Most dental crowns last around 10 to 15 years, though, providing you adhere to good oral hygiene. However, researchers caution that when testing the lifespan of a crown, they use models in their experiments and other variations, such as how the crown is placed, and other factors, could affect the results in an actual patient.
Many people can use their health insurance rebates providing they have major dental cover with their health insurance fund. Please call the clinic for more details, or call your health insurance fund to check your entitlements.
The cost of a dental crown varies, depending on which material is used, and where the crown/cap is being placed. However if you have health insurance, you may receive money back.
You may be advised to get your existing dental crown (tooth crown) replaced as it is too old, cracked or damaged or if tooth decay complications are occurring, which could lead to periodontal disease or root canal problems.
