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

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, 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 your 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.

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 your have your crown fitted to ensure it fits correctly and there are no issues.
