Dental Crowns Sydney

Dental crowns are also described as a dental cap that is a cap covering for your teeth. The whole purpose for the crown is to protect the tooth structure as it may have gone through major dental work such as a large filling or a root canal therapy. The dental crown acts like a helmet for that tooth and shields the weakened tooth structure. It provides cover for a tooth so that no fractures are likely to occur. Considered to be a major indirect restorative treatment, the dental crown is fabricated outside the mouth and there are a few different materials to choose from for different purposes.

The material difference between our Zirconia Ceramic crown and our CEREC Emax Ceramic crown is Zirconia Ceramic is a much stronger material than Emax Ceramic. Zirconia Ceramic crown, otherwise known as Porcelain crown is a lot kinder to opposing teeth which also makes it an ideal crown material for teeth grinders. Being a stronger material it is generally used for teeth where it requires more strength such as molars and bridges. The characteristic for Zirconia Ceramic crown is acceptable, however not as aesthetic pleasing as the other material so it is less frequently used for the front teeth.

The other dental laboratory crown is Porcelain Fused Metal crown, which is made out of porcelain and metal. The porcelain material covers the metal backing, making this dental crown excellent in strength and a long term track record. The porcelain cover made in the dental laboratory makes a highly realistic aesthetic and it is great for replacing one tooth. Due to the metal backing of the crown, Porcelain Fused Metal crown helps prevent and protect further cracks on your natural teeth. Once again this Porcelain Fused Metal crown requires two visits and the dental crown cost $1,795.

To find out which crown is suitable for your case, it is best to come in for a thorough examination and consultation. The dentist will be able take some x-ray and examine the tooth structural and functional qualities. At the appointment the dentist will be able to discuss our options and provide you with a treatment plan with cost and item numbers for the dental crown.

Natural teeth are made up of pulp, dentine and enamel. Enamel being the outermost covering of the tooth is the strongest material in human body.

Although being hard and strong, enamel has a crystalline structure which can chip, break or get weakened due to various reasons like caries(decay of a tooth), large fillings (especially amalgam), injury or trauma to the tooth(like a fall /hit on the tooth), stress related grinding of teeth, age related wear and tear etc.

An artificial crown prepared and cemented over the natural existing tooth structure is usually the best solution to such conditions.

Though ceramic is the most widely used crown material, a variety of materials are available and may be more suitable for different people depending on their anatomy, lifestyle habits, diet and etc. Your dentist will be able to advise the most appropriate material type for you in your preliminary consultation.

We design our ceramic and Emax crowns in-house using modern CAD/CAM technology where 3D images of the teeth are loaded on to the SIRONA-CEREC software and crowns are milled by computer operated machines in less than 10 mins. This technology has been used on more than 8 million patients worldwide and more than 25 million ceramic restorations have been created and placed.

Not ideal. Temporary crowns may fall off and damage natural tooth structure. Also, patients may suffer sensitivity or gum recession. This is why we prefer no longer than 2 weeks from the first appointment.
