Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns are used to restore, repair and strengthen extensively damaged teeth. We only use full ceramic crowns, enabling us to copy your natural tooth’s best features. All our crowns are made by master dental technicians, with the result that your restored tooth will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Why Wimpole Street Dental Clinic?

Damaged teeth shouldn’t mean you have to hold back and hide your smile from the world. At Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, our highly skilled dental crown dentists can provide services for dental crowns in London so you can confidently smile again.

We design our dental crowns to mimic the makeup of your natural teeth — colour, texture, shape and form. We use modern high-performance ceramics to ensure the longevity of the crowns; our dental laboratories in Germany and in the United Kingdom produce only the highest quality crowns in terms of functionality and aesthetics.

How do dental crowns work?

Don’t let the idea of cracked and damaged teeth keep you from smiling with your teeth and enjoying life naturally. Dental caps or crowns can replace a missing tooth or cover an existing, flawed one so you can get back to smiling without a second thought.

When teeth are severely damaged, covering them with crowns provides stability and reduces the chances of cracking. Crowns are designed to cover the visible part of your tooth to re-establish strength and assist the remaining healthy tooth substance, while also improving the appearance of the tooth with better shape and form.

What types of dental crowns are there?

There are various types of dental crowns available. From the material used to make the unique sizes to the ways they are cemented in place, dental crown types are chosen based on meeting patient needs. Varieties include:

  • Temporary crowns
  • Metal-ceramic crowns
  • Solid crowns made of metal
  • Post crowns, which are anchored to the tooth with a pin
  • Partial crowns, which cover a small portion of the tooth
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Implant crowns
  • Ceramic crowns
  • Telescopic crowns

If you’re looking for dental crowns in London that provide the most aesthetically pleasing result, we recommend all-ceramic crowns. This type mimics the tooth most accurately, coming as close to your natural tooth as possible in terms of looks.

How are dental crowns made?

As soon as you’ve decided dental crowns are right for you, you can expect the following treatment when you visit Wimpole Street Dental Clinic:

  • First, we prepare the natural tooth to be able to fit an accurate dental crown.
  • Then, we make an impression of your tooth to send off to the dental technician in the dental laboratory where the crown is made. The crown is produced in the desired material while gauging the colour of the existing teeth for the perfect match and end result.
  • While the crown is in production, a temporary crown will be placed on your affected tooth.
  • When the crown is finished, the original tooth is cleaned and then the crown is connected to the tooth with adhesive cement.

We recommend all patients schedule routine check-ups to assess the stability of their dental crowns.

When are dental crowns recommended?

Restoring your teeth is made simple with dental crowns, specifically when you find yourself in the following situations:

  • Your tooth is weak from decay and is on the verge of cracking.
  • Your tooth is already broken or worn down.
  • Your tooth is almost entirely made up of filling and needs more support.
  • You’re not happy with the way your teeth look, based on colour and shape.
  • You want to cover a dental implant.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of dental crowns?

Dental crowns can be your ticket to smiling without hesitation. The advantages include:

  • Durability: Dental crowns are expected to last on average around 20 years.
  • Satisfaction: Patients can improve the appearance of a tooth by restoring the shape and colour.
  • Total protection: : From cracked and decaying teeth to worn out teeth, dental crowns are designed to support and protect teeth from further damage.

While the advantages of dental crowns are significant, there are disadvantages as well. Some of the most common problems associated with dental crowns include:

  • The need for dental work prior to dental crown placement, such as filing teeth.
  • Discomfort after the procedure.
  • The possibility of chipped dental crowns over time.
  • The effects of wear on the adhesive cement that keeps the dental crown attached to your teeth.

Weighing the risks and benefits of dental crowns for teeth can give you a better idea whether this decision works in your personal favour. At Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, you can have peace of mind that you’re in good hands; we can provide support and assistance to navigate potential disadvantages.

How do I take care of my dental crowns?

Taking care of your dental crowns is just as important as prioritising your regular dental health. Proper oral hygiene habits ensure that your dental crowns remain in top shape since they are cemented to your natural teeth. To ensure the longevity of your dental crowns, make sure to:

  • Brush with fluoride toothpaste twice a day.
  • Floss or use interdental brushes at least once a day.
  • Visit the dental clinic regularly for routine check-ups and cleanings.

If your dental crown falls off, call the dental clinic as soon as possible to book an appointment. A dental crown specialist can put your dental crowns back in place, or replace them with a new set if necessary
