Crowns | Woodside Dental Practice Aberdeen
Your dentist may recommend having a crown or crowns in order to protect damaged, cracked or worn teeth.
A dental crown is a tooth shaped cap which is placed over a tooth to improve its appearance and restore its shape, size and strength. The dentist will shape the tooth and take an impression which will be sent to a dental laboratory. The lab will then construct a custom made crown which will be permanently cemented into place by the dentist at a subsequent appointment. In the interim phase a temporary crown will be constructed and fitted onto the tooth by your dentist. Crowns can be made from various types of material including an all porcelain, all metal or a porcelain and metal mix. Your dentist will discuss with you the most suitable option for your needs.
