Alternative Solutions to Dental Crowns

There are several dental procedures around but one of the most widely available is the crown. Tooth crowns are used to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from further breakage, wear or decay.
  • Cover heavy discolouration
  • Cover a broken, cracked or chipped tooth
  • Make a cosmetic modification

How it works

If you’re thinking that a dental crown is going to be an easy procedure, you will be sorely mistaken. Often the dentist prepares the tooth over multiple dental procedures to ensure that the crown can be fitted smoothly and comfortably.

In order to fit a dental crown, the original tooth must be filed down to accommodate the crown. Once this has been done, an impression will be taken of your original tooth to make sure that the crown fits perfectly over the top of the tooth.

*It is important that the impression is taken accurately, otherwise the crown will not be fitted correctly and will ultimately create discomfort. *

Before sending off your impression to a dental laboratory, you will get a choice of material that your crown will be made from. Most people opt for porcelain crowns as they replicate the natural tooth.

But don’t get too excited as this won’t be your final trip to the dentist! A temporary crown will be placed over your tooth between your first and second appointment when your real crown will be fitted.

The cost of a dental crown

With the dental crown cost sitting in band 3 of the NHS payment guidelines, you’ll be paying £256.50 for the procedure itself. This cost can get even more costly when you are having multiple teeth treated.

But what if you're looking to go private?

For the more affordable crowns you can expect to pay between £250-£1,200. This is the guided price of single metal crowns such as gold crowns.

If you’re looking for a crown that will match your natural teeth, you’re going to need a porcelain crown which will blend in more with your surrounding teeth. However, this luxury can set you back to up to £2,000 per tooth!

Ask your dentist as to what crown would be best for you.

You may find that you will also be charged for multiple check ups prior and post procedure. It is quite common that you will need to see the dentist after you have your crown fitted to ensure it fits correctly and there are no issues.

Complications of dental crowns

Sensitivity Once your procedure is completed, it is not uncommon for the crown tooth to become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.

Breakage Some crowns (more frequently with porcelain crowns) can suffer from cracks and chips over time when eating harder foods. When the porcelain of the chipped crown breaks away, the metal underneath the crown will start to show. In most cases, the dentist will not repair this unless the metal structure is affected.

Loose Crowns Naturally over time, your crown may become loose and could potentially fall out. If you feel that your crown is loose, visit your dentist immediately to prevent further damage

Gum Disease As is the case with other dental procedures, if not properly looked after, the crown could cause gum disease and lead to further dental complications.
