Dental Crowns

You can often tell when someone has crowns / caps on their teeth. False looking and bulky crowns can distract from any smile.

At 360 Dental Care we try to make “teeth” rather than “crowns”. A beautifully made porcelain crown can blend in perfectly with your natural teeth or be used in a smile makeover.

Having our onsite dental laboratory allows us to customise the crowns in the mouth so we can get results that wouldn’t be possible otherwise!

Free virtual consultations & smile assessments!

Please email smile@360dentalcare.co.uk

We will send you a photographic guide and arrange a Zoom link to be sent at a time that suits you!

Ask any dentist or technician, matching a single front tooth is one the most difficult things we can do in cosmetic dentistry. Having our onsite laboratory certainly helps! Tooth whitening and a single porcelain crown to replace an old crown.

Masking a dark tooth and matching a single front tooth is extremely tricky. A great job by our in house dental laboratory!

Jan hated her existing crowns but was concerned that the new crowns would look un-natural. Jan was delighted with the natural look we achieved with the porcelain crowns.

What are crowns?
Many people know crowns as caps,they are like a thimble that covers a tooth.
Crowns are used to rebuild a badly broken down tooth or change the shape and size of teeth.
They are similar to veneers but cover the inside as well as the outside of the tooth.
Crowns can be made of many different materials including zirconia, porcelain, metal and composite.

What is involved?
The tooth is adjusted, a mould or scan is taken and sent to a dental laboratory. Temporary crowns are used to test the shapes and colour.
A dental technician makes the crowns to the new smile design or to fit in with the existing smile.
The dentist will then cement the crowns in place.
Do they damage teeth?
We usually only use crowns when the tooth is already damaged. When done properly they will strengthen a tooth and make it last longer.
Occasionally they are placed onto very minimally adjusted teeth to change the shape of the teeth or change the bite.
How long do Crowns last ?
Its a little bit like asking how long a car lasts.
This would depend on how well made the car is, how well it is maintained, its mileage and what types of roads it was driven on!
Factors effecting how long crowns last:
  • How good the tooth is supporting the crown.
  • Has the work been carried out to a very high standard.
  • Are they well maintained – lower sugar diet, good oral hygiene , are you in a hygiene programme?
  • Tooth grinding can wear down and break natural teeth, if not managed it can do the same to crowns.
At 360 Dental care we make sure crowns are only used when they are appropriate for you and our work is akin to high quality cars!
We also offer maintenance programmes and help manage tooth grinding to keep your smile looking great and healthy!
If well cared for crowns can last 20 years and more.
Why choose 360 dental care for your crowns?
Crowns are a fantastic solution with the right cases selection. How long they last depends on how well they fit and how well they are made.
They require skill, knowledge, attention to detail and patience.
At 360 Dental our team have had extensive training and experience. All our clinicians use magnification to ensure crowns fit as well as possible.
We also have an onsite dental laboratory – theWhitelab allowing us to get get results that would difficult to achieve via the post!
