Overly filled or ageing teeth are prone to leakage or fracturing that can ultimately result in their loss.
Crowns placed on these teeth at the right time, can secure these teeth for decades. Sometimes the crowns may need minor repairs or re-cementing over time but it is rare that a crown will fracture and it is impossible for the material that the crown is made of to otherwise breakdown.
There are many types of crowns with different costs, strengths and cosmetics; so you will need to speak to your dentist to explore all of the options that might be available to you.
- How necessary is the crown?
- Which type best suits your requirements?
- What possible complications could there be?
- What is the cost likely to be?
These are all questions we will try to answer for you and as always, tailor a plan that is specific to your particular circumstances.
