Dental crowns cost more as compared to the fillings. This is because of the multiple things that are needed in the process and also that the crowns need to be custom made for your tooth in a dental laboratory. Hence crowns mostly need two different appointments. First one is to prepare the tooth and record its shape and size in an impression material which is sent to the lab to custom made a crown for your tooth. The crown is then fitted onto your tooth once received from the lab. Call us on 3269 2443 or book online to discuss the procedure and costs involved.
In majority of cases crowns can last decades. You need to take care of crowns by keeping them clean (brushing and flossing) and visiting your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean.
Your dentist will do a check up and may need an X ray to assess whether your tooth/teeth need any crown(s). If you have already been recommended to have a crown and have any questions, call 3269 2443 to book in with dentists at Sandgate Bayside Dental and raise any concerns. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Crowns are custom made for you which means you should feel minimal discomfort, if at all, after placement of the final crowns. Mostly this will be just a slightly different feeling of something new in your mouth and you will soon get used to it. Most people don’t even feel this and express that straight after having the final crown they were able to chew and function as normal.
As the age old saying goes, Prevention is better than cure, take care of your teeth early. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss between your teeth at least once a day. Visit your dentist every 6 months. Besides that, limit the intake of sugary and acidic foods. Watch this video on how to protect your teeth.
