Dental Crown

A crown replaces the lost portion of the tooth which is visible in the mouth. They are also used to restore a broken, weakened or heavily filled tooth. Crowns may be made of different materials such as pure metals or porcelain (which is tooth coloured) or a mixture of both.

Chances of Success

A crown should easily last 10+ years if you look after it. As it is a mechanical prostheses fitted in the mouth, it requires regular care & maintenance by both dentist & patient to ensure success.

Going dark at the margin?

This happens due to a number of potential factors:

  1. The gum can recede and shrink that exposes this dark margin of metal under the porcelain.
  2. The gum can recede and expose some of the root of the tooth which is often very dark.
  3. Some of the porcelain may have chipped away exposing the metal.

These are the most common reasons but to find out what has happened to your crowns book a free consultation.

The dentist will first need to check with a dental x-ray the state of the tooth underneath and check to make sure that changing the crown will be safe and that the root is in a good condition.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges can be used to fill a space or gap in your mouth as long as you have a healthy natural tooth of your own that can be used to hold the bridge in place.

There are two common types of bridges:

Conventional Bridge

The false tooth is attached to one or more of your natural teeth using a dental crown. The crown is placed over your natural tooth. This option is strong and tend to last for approximately 10 years.
