The purpose of a dental crown is to provide cover for a tooth so that no fractures are likely to occur. Fractures and cracks frequently happens to teeth with large existing restorations, as well as teeth that are subjected to excessive loading such as seen in sleep grinders/clincher’s.
Crowns can be made from different materials. We provide all metal crowns (Steel finish or gold finish), Porcelain fused to metal (tooth coloured with a metal alloy coping inside) and all ceramic crown (tooth coloured). All the above materials are well tolerated by cheek and gum.
We design our ceramic crowns in-house using modern CAD/CAM technology where 3D images of the teeth are loaded on to the SIRONA-CEREC software and crowns are milled by computer operated machines in less than 10 mins. This technology has been used on more than 8 million patients worldwide and more than 25 million ceramic restorations have been created and placed.
Our metal crowns are done in two visits. Dentists prepare the tooth, take impressions and send the impressions to highly experienced dental technicians in Sydney and Melbourne where crowns are made. They are cemented in the second visit.
What kind of Dental Crown material should I choose?
Dental crown is a restorative treatment for a broken down, weakened tooth. It involves preparing the tooth and covering it with high strength restorative material. There are many different types of dental crown materials to choose from:
- Full-metallic crown: Gold alloys are one of the most commonly used materials at Civic gentle dental care. Known for its high malleability, ductility and biocompatible nature, gold alloys are very friendly to tooth. There is minimal amount of natural tooth structure taken off during preparations for gold crowns. Other metal alloy crowns using non precious metals are also available.
- Porcelain-fused-metal (PFM) crown: to improve the aesthetic of a metallic crown especially in anterior/front teeth, dental technicians can place ceramics to cover the metal to give it a tooth-like aesthetic. It has been in use in dentistry for a very long time.
- Ceramic crowns: are typically made of high-strength medical grade ceramic (modified glass +lithium disilicate). These are one of the favourite crowns done at our practice. At Civic Gentle Dental Care, we utilise the latest chair-side CADCAM technology to provide precision fit dental crowns. The accuracy of such restoration is within microns of discrepancy, making them some of the most precision fitting restorations available to dentists. We offer Vita and E-max crowns at our surgery.
- Zirconia crowns: made out of Yttrium stabilised zirconia polycrystals; these crown are one the strongest available crowns of modern times. These are laboratory made crowns and need two visits for completion.
How long will my Dental Crown Last?
In our clinics, we are confident with our dental crowns that as long as the patient routinely visits a dentist to ensure good dental hygiene, we are happy to replace any dental crown that fractures within 5 years after its placement. Most labs are not prepared to do that.
Most dental practices require patients to make two to three visits because the moulds need to be sent off to a dental laboratory to construct the crown. At Civic Gentle Dental Care we make our crowns at our practice.
This enables us to reduce the extra cost associated with laboratory fees and also ensure that the quality meets our high standards. It also benefits our patients by allowing the entire dental procedure to be completed in one visit.
Our experienced and friendly Dentists will explain the process with you and you can watch your dental crown be made with our advanced Dental Crown technology equipment at Civic Gentle Dental Care.
What other dental options are available?
