A crown is a tooth shaped restoration that is placed over the tooth. It's used to strengthen the and protect your tooth structure. Crowns are made from porcelain to help them look like your natural teeth.
Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or damaged a great deal. As a result, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshapen or badly discoloured teeth.
Crowns are usually completed within two appointments. On the first appointment, we prepare the tooth and take impressions, which are then sent to our ceramist we then place a temporary crown. You will then come back for a further appointment when we will remove the temporary crown and we will cement the final crown in place.
We hope that you continue to stay well and are coping with the current situation.

WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT DENTAL PRACTICES CAN NO LONGER SEE PATIENTS PERSONALLY. IF A PATIENT NEEDS TO BE SEEN FOR EMERGENCY TREATMENT THIS MUST BE DONE AT A GOVERNMENT DESIGNATED LOCAL URGENT CENTRE FOLLOWING REFERRAL FROM THEIR OWN DENTAL PRACTICE. (More guidance to follow) DENTATA CHARTA DENTAL CENTRE IS ONLY PERMITTED TO PROVIDE TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS FOR URGENT AND EMERGENCY PATIENTS. WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO PROVIDE ADVICE OR REMOTE PRESCRIPTIONS FOR PAINKILLERS AND ANTIBIOTICS WHEN NECESSARY. (We have teamed up with a local pharmacy to help us in this)
Please take care and stay safe at home!
We look forward to welcoming you back once we are advised to resume normal services.
