IC Dental provide bespoke porcelain crowns that blend in perfectly with your teeth, made and fitted on the same day with no unnecessary waiting times.
A crown is a single replacement tooth, as opposed to a bridge which replaces more than one tooth. Porcelain crowns give the patient a perfect, natural smile, without the black line around the gums associated with standard crowns.
Fixing a Porcelain Crown
A crown may be fixed as follows:
- Over an existing tooth. this is where the tooth is damaged or broken but the root is strong enough to secure a crown
- Fixed to a dental implant. this is where the tooth is missing, or else is in such poor condition that it cannot secure a crown. In this case the old tooth is removed and a dental implant is fitted into the jawbone. The crown is fixed to the implant stump.
Crowns are manufactured in our award-winning Gloucestershire dental laboratory. For patients on site, crowns can be made bespoke and are approved directly by patients sitting with the technician. We use porcelain supported by zirconia, alumina (Procera™), (Emax™), milled ceramics (Cerec™ in-lab) and metal as well as enamel shells. Crowns can also be used to support a large filling when there isn't enough of the tooth remaining, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore fractured teeth, or cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
Crowns in an Hour
Our expert dental surgeons and technicians work together to create custom-made crowns within the hour, fitted on the same day with the minimum of fuss, providing long-lasting results and restoring your perfect smile.
Award Winning Aftercare
As part of our commitment to providing the very best service in cosmetic dentistry, we offer patients an aftercare service that lasts for five years after the crown has been fitted, with all work guaranteed to last for this length of time.
