Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over the teeth to provide strength, shape, and aesthetics. At our dental clinic in Lewisham, we use beautiful dental crowns to restore your smile.
Your skilled cosmetic dentist in Lewisham uses a range of materials to create high-quality dental crowns:
Step 1: Your dentist in Lewisham will file down your teeth in order to make room for the crowns.
Step 2: Impressions of your teeth will be taken at our dental surgery in Lewisham and sent to a dental technician. Your crowns will be skillfully custom-made to fit and match the shade of your teeth perfectly.
Step 3: You will be fitted with temporary crowns to wear before your permanent ones are ready.
Step 4: About one to two weeks later, you will have your permanent crowns fitted. Once you’re happy with how they look, they will be bonded to your teeth.
No. Your private dentist in Lewisham will perform the treatment under local anaesthetic. If, however, the tooth is without a nerve, anaesthetic may not even be needed.
Look after your crowns by brushing them after meals, and flossing them once a day. It’s also important to attend regular checkups at our dental practice in Lewisham. With good care, your crowns should last for decades.
