Worcester Park dentist explains Dental Crown procedure

A dental crown  is a simple enough procedure that most dentists can easily perform, says a Worcester Park dentist. One of the most common reasons for a crown is after a root canal has been done, the root canal treatment removes the top of the tooth, or the front part, in order to allow the dental surgeon to get right into the inner chamber. The crown is usually made from Porcelain, and can be colour matched by the labratory to make sure that it looks as natural as possible.  A cracked or chipped tooth can be rectified by grinding down the enamel to show the damage, then the crown will replace the missing part. It is generally fixed in position using dental cement, and will cover the whole of the ground down tooth. They are extremely hard wearing and will outlive the natural enamel on the other teeth. These days the cap or crown is used for a number of dental problems, worn teeth caused by grinding of the molars is a common one. Even teeth that are discoloured are being fitted with crowns. It isn`t always the first choice for many of these problems though, as veneers do to some extent also cover these problems. They last as long as a veneer which is between 5 and 15 years depending how you care for them, but like a veneer they can easily be replaced at any time.
