A dental crown is the best way to restore teeth that have been weakened by significant decay, a very large filling or root canal treatment. The crown sits over your tooth like a ‘cap’. Crowns can improve the strength and prolong the lifespan of your teeth.
At Alan Wilson Dentistry we use an in-house milling machine to produce your crowns. This state-of-the-art equipment enables us to take a 3D image of your teeth and design an instant crown on a computer screen, which can then be milled and fitted all within the same appointment. You won’t have to worry about your temporary crown falling out as you won’t have one! Crowns are colour matched to blend with your existing teeth.
Once in place you shouldn’t feel any difference in your mouth. You’ll be able to eat, drink and speak as normal from day 1.
