Types of Dental Crowns in Leeds

Exploring the right dental crown for you is a key step towards achieving the perfect smile. There are four main types to choose from:

  • Ceramic Crowns: Ideal for front teeth, these crowns offer a natural look that closely matches your existing tooth colour, perfect for blending seamlessly.
  • Porcelain-Fused to Metal Crowns: A durable choice that combines strength with aesthetics, these crowns are built on a metal structure for enhanced longevity.
  • Gold Alloys Crowns: Comprising gold, copper, and other metals, this option provides a strong bond to the tooth, ensuring it won’t fracture or wear away.
  • Metal Base Alloy Crowns: Known for their corrosion resistance, these crowns require the least amount of healthy tooth removal and offer a very strong solution.

Let’s chat about which crown suits you best – we’re here to guide you through your options and help you make an informed decision.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made caps designed to cover a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They can be used to protect a tooth that’s been broken or is severely worn down, cover a dental implant, or improve the look of a discoloured or misshapen tooth.

At Aesthetique Dental, we ensure that your crown not only enhances your dental health but also boosts your confidence with a natural, radiant smile. Reach out today for a dental crown consultation.

What Is The Treatment For Dental Crowns?

The treatment process for dental crowns starts with a consultation with one of our dental experts. Here, we will assess your suitability for crowns through a thorough examination, including x-rays and photographs. Our dentists will discuss treatment details and material options, addressing any queries you might have.

On the second visit, we prepare your tooth under local anaesthesia, reshaping it for the crown and taking a mould for the lab, where your custom crown is made. A temporary crown is fitted to protect your tooth in the interim.

Finally, we securely fit your custom crown during your third appointment, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance, enhancing both your smile and dental health within a streamlined, patient-focused process.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Crowns?

The benefits of dental crowns will make a noticeable difference to your life. These include:

  • Confidence Booster: Dental crowns boost your confidence, giving you a reason to smile with pride.
  • Structural Support: Crowns strengthen teeth, improving their structure and function.
  • Protection for Damaged Teeth: They safeguard damaged teeth, preventing further issues.
  • Repair for Cracked or Broken Teeth: Crowns repair severely cracked or broken teeth, ensuring they work smoothly.
  • Customised Tooth Shape: Shape your teeth the way you want with customizable crowns.
  • Teeth Brightening: Enjoy a brighter smile as crowns can brighten tooth colour and eliminate stains.
  • Preventive Shield: Crowns act as a shield, halting tooth wear and tear.

Dental Crowns FAQs

  • Are crowns bad for your teeth?
    Crowns are a very effective way of covering decayed or damaged teeth. They do require some of the tooth enamel to be removed so the crown can be fitted correctly, but for many patients the advantages outweigh this.
  • Can crowns be whitened?
    No, whitening treatments do not work on restorations such as crowns. Your dentist may recommend whitening your teeth to your ideal shade before beginning your crown treatment, to ensure your crown is colour-matched correctly and won’t need to be replaced.
  • Do crowns need to be replaced?
    Crowns are not likely to last for the rest of your life. Most last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced or repaired due to natural wear and tear. Sometimes, crowns are replaced for cosmetic reasons, such as if you have chosen to have whitening treatment on your natural teeth and would like the crown to match your new shade.
  • Can crowns become stained?
    Crowns may become stained over time, particularly if you consume a lot of tea, coffee or red wine, or are a smoker. However, the level of staining is less than in natural teeth. Whitening treatments will not affect your crown, so it may appear darker if you have had treatment to whiten the natural teeth surrounding it.
  • How long will my dental crown last?
    Dental crowns are crafted from durable, inert materials that don't degrade over time. However, the underlying tooth still needs to be cared for - this will also make sure your crown lasts longer. To keep on top of this, make sure you:
    • Avoid excessive force, such as chewing on hard foods
    • Focus on the ‘margin’, which is where the crown meets your tooth, when brushing and flossing
    • Visit us for regular checkups so that we can monitor your crown’s condition and quickly sort any issues
