Dental crowns, also called tooth caps, are one of the many cosmetic dentistry treatments on offer.
Dental crowns are a type of filling that is used to stabilise existing but broken, damaged or decaying teeth.
As the name suggests, dental crowns are placed on top of and over the tooth. Whether it’s tipped, decayed or damaged, a crown can restore the structure, function and look of your teeth.
While dental crowns can be used for purely cosmetic purposes, the team here at IFD often recommend tooth caps if your tooth or teeth are damaged and weak, or in danger of being lost for some other reason.
Our experts are highly experienced when it comes to dental crowns and cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to a cumulative experience of 60+ years, we’re the number one choice for families across Ipswich and greater Brisbane for treating damaged and worn teeth in an effective, timely and affordable manner.
If your tooth is damaged, broken or chipped it’s important that you seek treatment as soon as possible. Dental crowns provide a relatively simple, affordable and easy treatment solution. By waiting longer, you’re risking needing more expensive and potentially more invasive treatments to prevent tooth loss.
Our high quality restorative dental solutions are available for parents and children of all ages. We’re a truly family-focused clinic with an emphasis on ensuring a comfortable, relaxing environment for everyone.
Why are more and more Australians turning to dental crowns for both restorative and cosmetic dentistry purposes?
Dental crowns are effective at providing strong support to not just the damaged, decayed or brown tooth but the surrounding teeth as well. Even broken teeth can be restored to their previous levels of strength.
If your tooth has lost some of its original size or natural shape, tooth caps can help restore it to its original form.
Sometimes dental crowns can be used to cover and protect a dental implant and provide it with additional support and strength
If you have a weak tooth that’s in need of protection, a dental crown can provide the cushion you need to ensure it won’t break.
If your teeth are permanently stained or yellowed, a tooth cap can help improve the colour and aesthetic of your teeth giving you a brighter, white and more evenly matched smile.
Dental crowns can also be used to hold a filling in place and keep it from coming loose or causing damage.
If you’re unhappy or unconscious with your smile, dental crowns may be an answer. This cosmetic treatment can enhance the overall appearance of your smile and give you the confidence you deserve.
Are you wondering what the difference is between dental crowns and veneers?
While both forms of treatment can be used to protect and offer additional strength for damaged teeth, crowns and veneers are quite different.
Veneers are thin membranes that are put over the front of the tooth to cover the outer surface. Crowns, on the other hand, go over and encase the entire tooth.
If you’re looking for a longer-term solution, dental crowns may well be the way to go. Veneers, however, tend to cost less as a result.
