Dental Crowns in Glasgow

Are damaged or discoloured teeth causing you concern? Explore how our custom crowns can restore your smile and oral health.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers and encases a damaged or weakened tooth. Crafted from materials like porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination, crowns restore the tooth’s strength, shape, and functionality. Commonly used for teeth with large cavities, fractures, or after root canal treatment, dental crowns improve durability and aesthetics.

Who could benefit from dental crowns?

Dental crowns are recommended for individuals who:

  1. Have Extensive Tooth Decay: When a tooth has significant decay that cannot be effectively treated with a filling, a dental crown may be necessary to restore its structure and function.
  2. Undergo Root Canal Treatment: After a root canal procedure, a tooth may become brittle. A crown is often placed to protect and strengthen the treated tooth.
  3. Experience Fractured or Cracked Teeth: Teeth with fractures or cracks, especially those affecting a significant portion of the tooth, may require dental crowns to prevent further damage and maintain structural integrity.
  4. Suffer from Broken or Damaged Fillings: If a large filling becomes damaged or fails, a dental crown may be recommended to provide a more secure and long-lasting restoration.
  5. Need Cosmetic Restoration: Dental crowns are used for cosmetic purposes, such as covering severely discoloured or misshapen teeth, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the smile.
  6. Have Worn Down Teeth: Teeth that are excessively worn down due to factors like teeth grinding (bruxism) may benefit from dental crowns to restore their height and function.
  7. Require Anchors for Dental Bridges: Dental crowns serve as anchors to support dental bridges, filling the gap left by missing teeth.
  8. Seek Restoration for Dental Implants: Dental crowns are commonly used to restore dental implants, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement for missing teeth.
  9. Prefer a Long-Term Solution: For individuals seeking durable and long-lasting solutions to various dental issues, dental crowns offer a reliable option.

The Procedure of Getting Dental Crowns

Embarking on the journey to restore and strengthen your smile with dental crowns involves several key steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Begin with a consultation at Devonshire Dental Care. Our dental team assesses your oral health, discusses treatment options, and determines if dental crowns are the best solution for your needs.
  2. Treatment Planning: A personalised treatment plan is crafted based on the evaluation. This plan outlines the number of crowns needed, the type of materials to be used, and the overall approach to achieve optimal results.
  3. Tooth Preparation: During the next visit, the affected tooth is prepared to accommodate the crown. This involves removing a small amount of enamel to create space for the crown. If the tooth is severely damaged, additional build-up may be necessary.
  4. Impressions: Precise impressions of the prepared tooth and the surrounding oral structures are taken. These impressions serve as the basis for crafting a custom-fitted crown that matches the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  5. Temporary Crown Placement: While the permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown may be placed to protect the exposed tooth and maintain functionality.
  6. Crown Fabrication: Skilled dental technicians use the impressions to craft the dental crown in a dental laboratory. The crown is designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring both aesthetics and functionality.
  7. Final Fitting: Once the permanent crown is ready, you return for its final fitting. Our dentists ensure the crown fits accurately, the bite is comfortable, and the aesthetics meet your expectations.
  8. Cementation: With your approval, the dental crown is securely cemented onto the prepared tooth, completing the restoration. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a perfect fit.
  9. Post-Care Instructions: Our dental team provides comprehensive post-care instructions to ensure proper maintenance and longevity of your dental crown. Regular dental check-ups are recommended to monitor the crown’s condition.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
