Dental Crowns Manchester: What are they?
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a custom-made covering that fits over the entire structure of your tooth. It is securely cemented to the tooth and cannot be removed. The purpose of a dental crown is to enhance the strength of a tooth that has been weakened due to a large filling, crack, or break. Best Dental Crowns in Manchester!
Why Do I Need a Crown?
There can be various reasons why a tooth requires a crown. Some of these include:
Broken Tooth – If a significant portion of the tooth structure has been damaged, it can leave limited support for a filling to adhere to. Additionally, the remaining tooth may be weakened and more susceptible to further breakage due to the lack of support. A crown can provide increased support and protection to the remaining tooth and filling.
A tooth with Root Canal or Large Filling – A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment or has a large filling is vulnerable to further breakage due to the weakened structure. A crown can offer increased support and protection to the remaining tooth and filling, and in the case of a root canal-treated tooth, it can also enhance the seal around the root canal and significantly reduce the likelihood of failure.
Dental Implants – Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant, the abutment, and the crown. The crown sits on top of the abutment, as depicted in the illustration.
Cosmetic Crowns – Crowns can also serve a cosmetic purpose, especially when one or several front teeth are broken due to trauma, heavily filled, misshapen, damaged, or discoloured. A crown can replace the damaged tooth structure, reshape the tooth, and improve its colour.
