A crown is shaped like a natural tooth and can be comprised of porcelain or gold. There are a variety of options available, depending on where your tooth is located and personal choice.
The type of crown or veneer placed depends on several factors such as tooth position, quality and quantity of remaining tooth structure and biting forces present being some of them. Your dentist will carefully consider all these factors and most importantly what is best for the long-term functional and biological health of the tooth.
Here at the Mews we focus heavily on preventing disease, including tooth decay. Should you have tooth decay, lose a filling, or fracture a tooth – a filling may be the solution. The dentist will carefully assess the tooth to determine viable treatment options, and may suggest a tooth coloured filling be placed. Composite (tooth coloured) fillings bond to the tooth, and can withstand the chewing and biting forces placed on teeth in the mouth. During the procedure, the tooth and surrounding area will most likely be numbed with local anaesthetic to provide a painless experience. The filling will be shaped and polished to be as natural as possible, and fit in harmony with your bite.
