Tooth Crown Appointments in Manchester
You may need a permanent dental crown, sometimes known as a tooth cap, if you have a weak or damaged tooth.
This ‘sleeve’ fits over the exposed part of the tooth, above the gum line, to hold together cracked teeth and prevent further damage. It can also protect a worn-down tooth from any further wear and tear. If you have substantial tooth decay or have had a large filling or a root canal treatment with not enough tooth left to support it, your dentist may also recommend a dental crown.
As crowns are shells, they are also used to fit over dental implants or to cover discoloured or misshapen teeth. You may also need a crown if you are having a bridge fitted, as they act as anchors to hold the bridge in place.
Our dentists at Smile Chic Dental Clinic use various types of dental crowns to suit each patient’s individual circumstances. You can now even have a set of all-ceramic crowns with a lovely natural translucent appearance to match your natural teeth.

Dental Crowns Treatment
Fitting your dental crown will usually involve two visits to Smile Chic Dental Clinic and some very straightforward dental crown procedures. The first will be to assess the tooth and its surrounding area, including the root and surrounding teeth, and usually requires an x-ray.
The tooth underneath a crown must be as clean and healthy as possible before the crown is fitted, so if there is any trace of infection or inflamed tissue, occasionally a root canal may be required before the crown is fitted. If your tooth is its original size, your dentist may need to file it down to allow the cap to fit snugly in line with the rest of your jaw so as not to affect your bite.
Once we are happy you have a prepared tooth, we take an accurate impression of the tooth to create a perfectly fitting dental crown that seamlessly sits alongside your surrounding teeth. A crown will usually take about two to three weeks to create in a dental laboratory, so before it can be fitted we will provide you with a temporary dental crown. This temporary crown is usually made out of acrylic and is held in place with temporary cement to keep your mouth looking and feeling healthy while your crown is custom-made. A local anaesthetic will be administered before your permanent crown is fully fitted. Your dentist will remove the replacement and then attach your unique crown using permanent dental cement.

Frequently asked questions
Why Consider Dental Crowns?
Why should missing teeth be replaced?
You should replace missing teeth to improve your appearance and to keep your mouth healthy and working properly. The gap left by a missing tooth can put more strain on the teeth on each side. This can affect your bite because the teeth on each side of the missing one can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth meet. If food gets into the gap, this could lead to decay and gum disease.
How long will a crown last?
You can expect a new crown to last between 5 and 15 years. However, with regular dental health check-ups and good hygiene, your crown may last 25-30 years.
How should I look after my dental crown?
Porcelain crowns, gold crowns, and even silver tooth caps are the most popular form of dental crown, but you can treat them like a natural tooth. While it does not require any particular care, remember that it acts as a sleeve over the top of your natural tooth, so decay and gum disease can still occur if you don’t stick to a good oral health routine. Keep up regular dental health check-ups and remember to continue to floss around the tooth. When flossing, try to pull the floss through your teeth rather than upwards – sometimes pulling up and out can catch on your dental crown and contribute to it wearing more quickly.
