What are the different types of dental crowns?

Types of Crowns

Crowns can be made from a number of different materials, but the porcelain model is normally one your dentist will opt for. With modern crown technology it is possible to achieve a look and feel that is exactly like natural teeth. At MyDental we offer three types of crowns:

PFM (Porcelain fused-to-metal)

A PFM crown is typically used on pre-molars and molars as they do not have the same aesthetic result as a full porcelain or zirconium crown, and they cost less also. They are hard wearing crowns and a great choise for back teeth.

E.max (full porcelain)

An E.max crown is the most popular crown at MyDental, the full porcelain crown gives an excellent aesthetic look for front teeth and canines. The dentist will work with the patient to achieve a shade and shape that matches the other teeth. Full porecelain crowns are an excellent choice becuase they do not stain and have a very long lifespan.

Zirconium Crowns

similarly, a zirconium crown is a strong material that will also give a great aesthetic look. Zirconium tends to be a bit stronger than porcelain and is sometimes are better choice for certain patients. Aain the dentist will talk the patient throught he various options and help chose the closest shade and shape to match other teeth.

What should I expect during my treatment?

The Procedure

You will normally have to visit us twice. On your first visit, you will have a free consultation which includes us taking an X-Ray – this lets us check out the roots of the tooth and the quality of the bone surrounding it.

Before we start manufacturing the crown, we will first numb the tooth and gum area, then file down the tooth along the sides and the chewing surface.

After filing and reshaping the tooth to accommodate the crown, we use a special form of paste to make an impression of the filed-down tooth. This impression is then sent to our dental laboratory, which manufactures the crown.

Once this is ready, you’ll be called back to the surgery and the crown will be fixed in place with a special form of dental cement that forms a strong and permanent seal.

How do I take care of my dental crown?

Taking Care of your Crown

A crowned tooth, per se, doesn’t demand any special care regime. It’s important to remember, however, that the pared down tooth underneath the crown is still subject to the normal decay or gum disease that can affect your other teeth.

So make sure you keep up your normal dental regime of brushing at least twice a day and flossing or using interdental brushes at the end of the day. Be especially diligent in cleaning the area where the gum meets the tooth/crown.

What is a dental Bridge?

Dental Bridge

A bridge is a dental restoration method used to replace a missing tooth by joining a fabricated tooth, permanently, to the adjacent teeth or dental implants. Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they are ‘anchored’ to the adjacent teeth. Bridges are made by a technican in a Laboratory and fitted to your teeth by your dentist.

A bridge is accommadeted in the mouth by ‘reducing’ the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth. The prepared bridge is then placed in the mouth and cemented to the now prepared adjacent teeth.
