Dental crowns are used to protect teeth that are badly broken down or may have been root treated in the past. They help reinforce the tooth structure and improve the appearance of missing and damaged teeth.
They are usually made from porcelain, though there are many other materials available. A decision is made by the dentist on which is the most suitable for each individual patient.
The process from start to finish only takes between two and three weeks. You will have a temporary crown in place while the laboratory make up the permanent crown. On the fitting date, the temporary crown is removed and you will be fitted with your new crown with a permanent cement.
It is important to attend Galway Dental Clinic for regular check-ups and to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home.
