Cosmetic Dentistry: Do I need a Crown?

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

Sometimes a dental crown is the best choice for long-term protection and prognosis of teeth. Dr. Tripp recommends a crown anytime multiple fractures are present in a tooth that is important in chewing and function.

While we believe in adhesive (“bonding”) dentistry for many teeth, a crown must be placed in certain situations. We offer many crown options from all-porcelain being the most popular to traditional metal-based crowns.
