Affordable solutions to Dental-Tooth-Caps
The dental-tooth-cap, commonly known as a ‘crown’, is a vigorous dental treatment carried out by a dental professional. This common form of dental procedure is used for a variety of dental issues, including chipped or broken teeth, severe discolouration and to help support dental bridges or dentures. Having a tooth cap is permanent and irreversible.
How does the tooth cap work?
For the tooth cap to work, there has to be enough space on the existing tooth to accommodate for the cap itself. To do this, the dental professional will sand down the majority of the natural tooth so it is a small stump. Once the space has been made, an impression will be taken of your tooth so that the lab can create an identical replica of your original tooth.
It is vital for the dentist to get the most accurate replica as if there are any differences, the cap could fall off or break, cause pain or even cause a variety of other dental issues. At the end of this appointment, you will be given a temporary tooth cap that will protect the natural tooth until your permanent tooth cap is made. Once your tooth cap is made, you will then revisit the dental professional and have the cap cemented onto the tooth.
Caps for front teeth
It is possible to have a front tooth cap, however it is important that you are happy with the current colour of your other natural teeth. When the dentist sends your tooth cap off to be made, they will take the shade of your surrounding natural teeth so that the cap doesn’t look out of place in your smile.
This is great but be warned, once the shade is chosen, there is no way of changing as the tooth cap will be resistant to teeth whitening products. So for example, if your current set has a natural stain shade, then your new tooth cap will also have the same shade. If you get your teeth whitened, your crown will still have that stained shade whilst your natural teeth have a pearly white glow.
Tooth cap cost
The cost of a tooth cap can be quite staggering and is therefore a luxury that not everybody can afford.
The tooth cap procedure is one of the most expensive procedures via the NHS pay band brackets. It can be found in band 3 which equates to £256.50 per tooth! As you can imagine, this number can rack up even further if multiple teeth are in need of the treatment.
But what if there was a solution that could solve the same cosmetic issues as tooth caps, whilst also having multiple teeth covered in one price without seeing your dentist?
