Even a broken tooth can be brought back to its best with a dental crown[caption id="attachment_6861" align="aligncenter" width="347"]

Spot the difference … the right central incisor is a crown[/caption]Dental crowns are by no means new, but it is surprising just how many people still don’t realise that an unsightly, and maybe painful broken tooth can be effectively and invisibly repaired using a custom-made dental crown.As a matter of fact dental crowns are not just effective for a broken tooth, they can also provide the perfect remedy to strengthen a weak tooth or teeth, to improve the appearance of discoloured or damaged teeth, to aid the stability of dentures and to assist a tooth on its road to recovery after root canal treatment.No two teeth are alike and no two dental problems can ever really be compared, so if you suffer from a broken tooth or if you have other dental problems where a dental crown may be the solution then the only way to find out for certain is to let a dentist examine the problem and then discuss whether a dental crown could be the answer.At Carisbrook dental crowns are very much part of our everyday dental service and that is why so many patients who may have a broken tooth or other dental problem now choose to discuss with us whether a dental crown could be the solution they’re looking for.There are basically four different materials that can be used to manufacture dental crowns. They are:

  • Gold Alloy
  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain
  • Porcelain bonded to precious metal

Generally speaking gold is the most enduring material, but of course, it could never be claimed that it is the most discreet of remedies. And that is why by far the most popular dental crown treatments that we provide are based around ceramic.It is because we exclusively use the very best laboratories to custom-make our ceramic crowns that we can promise your new crown will be an exact match and will blend in perfectly with the shade and shape of your surrounding teeth.If you have a broken tooth or other disfiguring dental problem you can be totally confident that we will be able to prepare and fit a bespoke dental crown that will match your adjacent teeth so perfectly so that no one (except yourself) will ever realise that it isn’t real.So remember, you don’t have to suffer the anguish or pain of an unsightly broken tooth, discoloured tooth, damaged tooth or weak tooth. It probably doesn’t have to be extracted either. Make an appointment at Carisbrook and one of our highly qualified, expert dentists will be only too happy to discuss how a custom-made crown can give you back that lovely attractive, unblemished smile you thought you’d lost forever.If you would like to discuss the beauty and benefits of dental crowns then please do not hesitate to contact us.
