Dental Crowns (Procera)

A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling.

How a dental crown works:

  1. An impression is taken of the tooth that needs restoring.
  2. A crown is made in the dental laboratory to fit the tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.
  3. The tooth is then prepared and the crown fitted securely on top.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.

Life benefits:

  • Strengthens remaining tooth structure
  • Natural-looking restoration
  • Functions like a real tooth, so you can bite and chew as usual

The dental crowns that are offered by Acorn Dental Care are dental restorations that very closely resemble the appearance of a natural tooth.

Also called a cap, a crown is used to cover the surface of the affected tooth, to improve its overall functionality and appearance; the dental crown can also be used to prevent further damage or decay from happening to a particular tooth, and can provide better strength to the tooth that has been previously decayed or damaged.
