Dental Tooth Crown From Your Auckland Dentist

Show More

A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth.

 

Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment.

A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Zirconia and ceramic crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain/ceramic and may be recommended for back teeth. Ceramic bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.


Your dentist may recommend a crown to:
 
  • Cover and protect a tooth that has had root canal treatment

  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining

  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing

  • Restore a fractured tooth

  • Attach a bridge

  • Cover a dental implant

  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth

     

What is the process for getting a Crown?

Preparing a tooth for a crown usually requires a couple of visits to the dentist - the first step involves examining and preparing the tooth, the second visit involves placement of the permanent crown.


How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

On average, dental crowns last up to 15 years. The life span of a crown depends on the amount of "wear and tear" the crown is exposed to, how well you follow good oral hygiene practices, and your personal mouth-related habits (you should avoid such habits as grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing ice, biting fingernails, and using your teeth to open packaging).


Does a Crowned Tooth Require Special Care?

While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember that simply because a tooth is crowned does not mean the tooth is protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily - especially around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth - and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once a day.


How Much Do Crowns Cost?

Costs of crowns vary depending on the type of crown selected (for example, ceramic crowns are typically more expensive than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns). Generally, crowns start from $1200 per crown.
