Regain your smile's form and functionality

Over time, your teeth may weaken, and for a variety of reasons, your dentist may advise getting crowns. It can be used to cover a dental implant, cap a tooth with an imperfect shape, or restore and fortify a tooth with a huge filling. Crowns are frequently employed in smile makeovers that look completely natural.

The shape, appearance, and functionality of a smile can all be restored using dental crowns, which are a highly common procedure. An artificial tooth-shaped “cap” called a crown is permanently affixed over your natural tooth.

Dental Crowns: Restoring Strength and Beauty to Your Smile

Dental crowns offer a versatile solution for addressing a variety of dental concerns. Here’s how the team at Vilafortuny Dubai can help to benefit your smile:

Renewing Compromised Teeth:

  • Beyond Fillings: For large cavities that exceed the capacity of a filling, dental crowns provide a more durable restoration, protecting and strengthening the tooth structure.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Cracked, discolored, or misshapen teeth can detract from your smile’s beauty. Dental crowns can be customized to perfectly match the size, shape, and color of your surrounding teeth, creating a flawless appearance.
  • Improved Bite Function: Crowns can correct minor misalignment or tilting of teeth, ensuring a proper bite and preventing future problems.

Protecting Your Smile’s Foundation:

  • Strengthening Vulnerable Teeth: Weak or fractured teeth are susceptible to further damage. Crowns act as a protective cap, shielding the tooth from chipping, breaking, or decay.
  • Guarding Against Gum Disease: Crowns create a tight seal around the tooth, reducing the risk of bacteria entering the root canal and causing gum disease.

Dental Crown Procedure:
A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Your dentist will meticulously examine your teeth using advanced tools like digital scanners or X-rays to assess the tooth’s health, including the pulp and surrounding bone structure.
  2. Comfortable Treatment: Local anesthesia ensures you experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Creating Your Custom Crown: State-of-the-art digital impressions are used to create a precise 3D model of your dental crown. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss material options like ceramic or zirconia to achieve the desired aesthetics.
  4. Temporary Protection: A temporary crown will be placed on your tooth while your permanent crown is being crafted in the lab.
  5. Permanent Placement and Polishing: Once your permanent crown arrives, your dentist will carefully cement it into place for a secure fit. The treatment concludes with polishing your crown from excess of cement for a natural shine.

Dental crowns offer a valuable combination of functionality and aesthetics, restoring strength and beauty to your smile. Consult with your Vilafortuny Dubai dentist to explore if dental crowns are the right solution for your needs.

Restoring Damaged Teeth

A crown can be used to restore the shape, look, and functionality of a tooth that has been damaged but is not lost.

In general, crowns are advised for teeth with very large fillings, broken down teeth, teeth with insufficient tooth structure, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, or teeth that are cracked, worn, deformed, or discolored. Crowns can be entirely composed of ceramic, porcelain-fused to metal, gold, or metal.

A crown is put on a tooth to shield it from powerful mastication forces (bite). The current improvement in porcelain materials allow us to match the natural appearance of teeth and so deliver truly realistic results.

Same Day Crowns

A same-day dental crown, sometimes referred to as a single appointment crown, is made using CEREC technology, which enables us to create your ceramic crown to your specifications in a few hours.

    Dental Crowns: Your Questions Answered at Vilafortuny Dubai

    What are the Cost of Dental Crowns?

    The cost of your dental crown depends on the specific type and material chosen. During your consultation, our dentists will discuss these options with you in detail and provide a personalised cost estimate based on your needs.

    Dental Crown Lifespan- How many years?

    With proper care, dental crowns can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene and avoiding hard or sticky foods will contribute significantly to the longevity of your crown. At Vilafortuny Dubai, we look after your oral health with regular preventative care.

    What is the Impact of Oral Hygiene on Dental Crowns?

    Just like your natural teeth, dental crowns require good oral hygiene practices to prevent damage. Proper brushing and flossing minimize the risk of bacteria accumulating around the crown and causing decay. Regular dental checkups and cleanings at Vilafortuny Dubai are also crucial for maintaining your crown’s health.

    What about Teeth Whitening and Dental Crowns?

    The good news is that teeth whitening treatments won’t affect your dental crown! Since crowns are artificial teeth, they won’t change colour with whitening products. However, to ensure a uniform appearance, our dentists recommend whitening your natural teeth before placing your crown. This way, we can create a crown that perfectly matches your newly brightened smile.

    Should I go for Dental Crowns or Fillings?

    The choice between a crown and a filling depends on the severity of the damage to your tooth. For smaller cavities, a filling might be sufficient. However, for larger cavities or teeth with significant structural damage, a crown offers a more durable and long-lasting solution to restore the tooth’s strength and functionality.

    Will I have Pain during the Dental Crown Procedure

    Dental crown placement is typically a comfortable procedure. Our dentists use local anaesthesia to numb the area, minimizing any potential discomfort. The benefits of a restored and strengthened tooth far outweigh any temporary discomfort you might experience.

    Explain Temporary vs. Permanent Crowns?

    Temporary crowns are used as a placeholder while your permanent crown is being crafted in the lab. Temporary crowns are typically made from a less durable material and may not fit as precisely or be as strong as the permanent crown. This is why it’s important to avoid hard or sticky foods while wearing a temporary crown. Additionally, wearing a temporary crown for too long can increase the risk of tooth damage. At Vilafortuny Dubai, we prioritise timely delivery of your permanent crown to ensure your comfort and optimal oral health.
