Structural advantages

Dental crowns (sometimes called a tooth crown) provide not only numerous aesthetic advantages but structural ones too! They can be used to fill in gaps and to cover up discolouration or to help build up a tooth that is worn down by grinding.

From a structural perspective, the advantages of them are numerous. Firstly, they can be used to protect a weak tooth from further stress (possible from decay), thus helping to hold it together. In this case, they are used to hold together the cracked tooth, or in certain instances, to support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t much natural dentition left.

Sometimes they are used to help build up a tooth that has been worn down from grinding, and often they provide additional support to new teeth inserted in place of a gap (thus holding a bridge in place).

Dental crowns are made from a range of materials; from all metal, porcelain-fused-to metal, all resin or all ceramic. Ceramic or porcelain provide the best natural colour match than any other type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies - typically we use them more than other type of crown.

Longevity you can feel confident with

Regarding longevity, dental teeth crowns will usually last between five and ten years, although on average about seven. As with all things, the life span of them depends on the amount of 'wear and tear', how well you follow oral hygiene habits and your personal mouth related habits (e.g. grinding or clenching or using your teeth to open packaging!!). Wearing a night guard will also increase longevity.
