Dental crowns

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

A crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials.  They can be made from plastic, ceramic or metal alloys.  A combination of metal and ceramic is also possible to maximise strength and simulate the appearance of natural teeth.

See cases below:-

Two Crowns

Case 1

Aherne
Before
The patient was unhappy with the colour of their front 2 central incisors, on which they had root canal treatment done many years ago. To strengthen the teeth white coloured silca fibre posts were placed and the teeth were prepared to fit crowns. Impressions were taken and temporary crowns were placed.
Aherne
After
After 3 weeks the crowns were returned from the lab. These were all porcelain crowns and were permanently cemented into place that day.

Case 2

Aherne
Before
The Patient had fractured both of his central incisors due to an accidental fall and they had been both repaired with composite many years ago. The patient was unhappy with the appearance and the length of these two teeth. Therefore we decided to prepare the teeth for crowns, impressions were taken, sent to the lab and temporaries were fitted.

After 3 weeks 2 all Ceramic (E-max) crowns were cemented permanently into place .

4 Crowns

Aherne
Before
The patient had old crowns in their front 4 teeth and due to the appearance of these was afraid to smile. These crowns were removed, new temporary crowns were made up to get the teeth into the right position that the patient wanted. Impressions were taken and sent to the lab.
Aherne
After
After 3 weeks 4 porcelain fused to metal crowns were cemented into place giving the patient confidence to smile again.

Full Arch Crowns

Aherne
Before
The patient had all his upper teeth crowned many years ago, these had worn and were decayed. They were all removed with temporary crowns being constructed, some of the teeth also required root canal treatment along with silica fibre posts. The teeth were then re prepared and impressions were taken for the lab.

After
After 3 weeks all porcelain crowns were fitted permanently creating a harmonious result for the patient.
