A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your tooth and completely covers it. Dental crowns on your teeth solve a range of problems, from lost fillings and root canals to cracked or fractured teeth.
Here at Paramount Dental Sydney we specialise in fitting porcelain crowns because (unlike your traditional crowns) they do not contain any metal and are free of substances that may be harmful to your body. Porcelain crowns are similar to porcelain veneers as they create a more aligned and symmetrical appearance to your teeth. Porcelain crowns have the added medical bonus of being full tooth crowns giving your teeth added strength, durability and stability.
Being fitted for a porcelain crown involves our dental practitioners making an impression of your teeth to ensure the crown fits perfectly according to the exact dimensions of the damaged teeth.
Once a tooth is crowned it is protected from decay, except for the gum line. We may prescribe a high-fluoride gel for you to use every night if we think you have a high risk of developing cavities. Please note that a porcelain crown does not protect against gum disease so you should continue a normal dental hygiene program brushing twice a day as well as flossing daily.
