Dental Crowns in Harrogate

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over the damaged tooth. This is a permanent solution once it’s in place; a crown will look, feel and function just like any other of your other teeth.

When would I need a crown?

There are several reasons why your dentist may recommend a crown:

  • To protect a damaged or weakened tooth
  • To cover a tooth that’s mostly filling or is discoloured or misshapen
  • To secure a dental bridge
  • To protect a dental implant
  • To cover a tooth that’s undergone a root canal

What’s involved in having a crown fitted?

You’ll usually need two appointments. At the first, your dentist will examine the tooth and prepare it for the crown, take X-rays of the tooth and the surrounding bone and file down the tooth.

An impression will then be taken of the tooth that’s receiving the crown and the teeth above the crown. This is so that the crown fits correctly with your bite. Should it be required, your dentist will give you a temporary crown to protect your teeth until the permanent crown is ready – usually 2-3 weeks.

During your second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and your new crown will be permanently fixed in place using a dental cement.
