A crown restores the size, appearance, strength, and functionality of a heavily decayed, damaged, discoloured, or misshapen tooth. It is designed to mimic the appearance of a real tooth, blending in with your smile.
During your first visit, your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic, reshape your tooth, and take a 3D scan of the area, so your customised crown can be fabricated. You will wear a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready.
During your next visit, your dentist will place your permanent crown over the tooth, check it for a proper fit and cement it in place.
How do I take care of my crown?
Regular brushing and flossing, along with visiting your dental hygienist at least twice a year for professional cleaning, is all that is required to take care of your new crown.
Avoid chewing on very sticky or hard foods to ensure the longevity of your crown.
How long will my crown last?
A crown can last up to 15 years, as long as you practise good oral hygiene daily and visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
Excellent service, we were seen within 5 minutes of arrival, so glad we came back to you as following a recent move we decided to try a nearer vets who were part of a chain but they sadly offered a very poor & expensive service!Thanks again.
I've been using Appleton Park Dental for nearly 30 years and it's always been great. I was apprehensive when the changes happened a couple of years back but I'm so pleased that I stayed with them as all the staff are wonderful.
My recent experience has bee ongoing check-ups and dental hygiene + some minor treatments from that and also an implant and crown to replace a tooth lost some years ago.Everyone at Appleton Park Dental has been pleasant and cheerful, the check-ups/cleaning & treatments have been thorough. The options to fix the missing tooth were well explained and executed and I'm delighted with the outcome so far. The only reason for the lost star in my rating is the wait times are long. Firstly to get the replacement process underway and secondly most appointments seem to commence at least 30 minutes after the appointment time.Ultimately its probably been worth the waits, but there is room for improvement in that area.
What a great practice- My Daughter has had terrible trouble with her front teeth resulting in root canal treatment.Dr THANAA ABDULLAH was absolutely fantastic, thank you so much.Today I visited the dentist myself for a filling, I am a very nervous patient and Hugh Garvey and Laura made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend this practice.
I wont lie, I hate the Dentist, however the 2 ladies that looked after me yesterday couldnt have been more lovely and patient. it was not an easy job either, which took a good 45 minutes, but they were so lovely and I would highly recommend :)
It was my first time at Appleton Park Dental today. I have left feeling so happy. Everyone is so friendly & helpful. Straight away I was made to feel at ease. What a wonderful team. Thank you so much.Would highly recommend.
From the minute you ring the bell you are made to feel welcome and at ease. Reception staff are lovely. Dr Mirsar is great very kind, gentle and patient. The practice is always very clean and tidy. I am a very happy patient there. Thankyou
I took my toddler son for his very first check up yesterday. Hugh the dentist and dental nurse were amazing with my son making him feel at ease. Thank you. I also had my first visit at this practice today again with Hugh. Again i felt at ease and Hugh answered all my questions i had. Alrrady booked my next checkup and an an appointment with the hygienist. The receptionists are really helpful too.Thank you to you all :-)
