Frequently Asked Questions

Seeking more insights into dental crowns? Browse through our comprehensive FAQ section, tailored to address all your queries.

When is a dental crown necessary?

A tooth cap in Shenton Park becomes essential when a tooth is compromised, cracked, or significantly weakened due to decay or large fillings. Dental crowns in Shenton Park can act as a protective cap for the damaged tooth, helping restore its appearance, strength, and function. If a broken tooth is not addressed, it may lead to further issues such as infection or tooth loss.

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns generally last between 10 and 15 years. This longevity depends on various factors, such as the individual’s oral hygiene practices, the material of the crown, the skill of the private dentist, and lifestyle habits such as teeth grinding or biting on hard objects. Regular dental check-ups at Shenton Park Village Dental can help maintain the crown so it remains in good condition.

Are dental crowns painful to get?

The procedure for a dental crown in Shenton Park is generally not painful. Local anaesthesia may be administered to numb the prepared tooth area, making the process comfortable. Some mild discomfort or sensitivity might be experienced after the procedure, but this is usually temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

What materials are used for dental crowns?

Materials for a dental crown in Shenton Park may vary, including metal, resin, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and ceramic. Porcelain crowns are popular for their aesthetic appeal, as they closely resemble natural teeth. Metal crowns are used for their longevity, while porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns provide a natural look while providing durability.

We may recommend different materials at Shenton Park Village Dental based on the individual’s preferences, the location of the tooth, and the tooth’s function.

How much do dental crowns cost?

The cost of a dental crown in Shenton Park may range from $1,700 to $5,000 per crown, depending on the materials used and the specific needs of the tooth. For accurate information on costs, please schedule a consultation with Shenton Park Village Dental.

Are there any potential risks or complications associated with getting dental crowns?

As with any dental procedure, there are some risks associated with dental crowns. These may include sensitivity, mild discomfort, or an allergic reaction to the materials used. However, these complications are rare, and the qualified and experienced dentists at our clinic will take the necessary precautions to minimise these risks.
What are the alternatives to dental crowns for restoring damaged or decayed teeth?

Alternative treatments for dental crowns include the following:

Fillings: serve as a straightforward method for restoring minor tooth decay or damage.
Inlays: custom-made restorations that fit into a tooth’s chewing surface, offering a discreet restoration.
Onlays: cover a larger area than inlays and are used when more extensive tooth structure is compromised.

The most appropriate option will depend on the extent of the damage and the location of the tooth.

How do I take care of my dental crown after the procedure?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial so your crown remains in good condition and serves you for a long time. This includes regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard foods that could damage the crown, and attending regular check-ups at Shenton Park Village Dental.

Can dental crowns be used to replace a missing tooth?

Dental crowns can’t replace a missing tooth, but they play a pivotal role in dental bridges and implants. In a bridge, an artificial tooth (pontic) is held in place by two dental crowns on the abutment teeth. For dental implants, a dental crown is used as the visible part of the tooth.

Are there any foods or habits I should avoid after getting a dental crown?

Following the placement of your dental crown, it’s advisable to avoid hard or sticky foods that could potentially dislodge or damage the crown. You should also avoid habits such as using your teeth as tools, like opening packages with them. These could put undue pressure on the crown and cause it to break.

Will my dental crown look natural and match the colour of my other teeth?

Absolutely! One of the main benefits of the high-grade porcelain crowns used at Shenton Park Village Dental is their ability to mimic the translucency and colour of natural teeth. Your crown will be colour-matched to your existing teeth, so it blends seamlessly and gives you a natural smile.

How long does the dental crown procedure take from start to finish?

In general, getting a dental crown requires two appointments. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared, impressions are taken, and a temporary crown is placed. The impressions are sent to a dental lab to create the custom crown.

On the second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and the custom crown is cemented. Each appointment usually lasts between 60-90 minutes. The whole procedure can be finished in 1 to 2 weeks.
