Dental crowns also known as dental caps, are a lab made restoration that is placed over a cracked, broken, root filled or heavily filled tooth to protect the tooth against fracture.
At Pearl dental clinic, we provide a range of dental crowns. You are welcome to view our dental crown before & after gallery of completed cases.
All ceramic crowns have no grey metal inside. Therefore, they are often used for the visible front teeth. If over time, the gum recedes, there will be no grey metal margin on show. All ceramic crowns are the most aesthetically pleasing crowns.
Zirconia crowns are usually used for back molar teeth. These crowns have no porcelain, so the risk of crown fracture is far less. In terms of tooth reduction, these crowns need minimal tooth reduction similar to gold crowns and are almost as strong as gold crowns. Zirconia crowns are not quite as aesthetically pleasing as ceramic crowns but are still white in colour and look natural.
Porcelain bonded to metal crowns have a metal core on the inside and porcelain bonded to the outside. However, the thin porcelain layer can fracture more easily than other crowns. Theses crowns were extensively used in the past but have now been mostly replaced by Zirconium and Ceramic crowns.
Gold crowns are the strongest crowns available. They are usually used for back molar teeth. Gold crowns need minimal tooth reduction. Gold crowns are the most expensive and least aesthetic crowns and are mainly used in patients who are serious teeth clencher and grinders (Bruxist).
With good regular maintenance, crowns can last 10-15 years.
Dental crowns cost from £495-£750. At Pearl dental clinic, you can spread the cost of your dental crown treatment interest free with our 0% dental finance payment plans.
