Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are designed to cover the visible surface of a damaged tooth, adding strength and stability for the protection of future oral health. Many circumstances can lead to a tooth becoming damaged, including:

Crowns are permanent 'caps' that fit over an existing tooth. They look and work in exactly the same way as natural teeth do. They are usually recommended in cases where a tooth cannot hold a filling due to decay or if there is a danger of a cracked tooth breaking. Fitting closely and comfortably to the gum, dental crowns guard what is left of the original tooth. They can last for a number of years if they are maintained with good oral hygiene.

Technique to fit a crown

Before and after photographs always look good. They wouldn't be shown otherwise. Mine are no different. I'm really delighted with the outcome. But photographs can only depict results, and show nothing about how they were achieved. Like a maths exam at school, the correct result is of little use without knowing the workings. In my opinion, the workings don't come any better than they do at BDS. I visited a few places before deciding on my treatment. The decisive factor for me was the personnel, and I made an excellent decision on that basis. Dr Khaira is simply one of the most outstanding professionals I have ever had the pleasure to meet...
