DENTAL CROWNS!

Dental crowns are artificial restorations which sit over existing teeth and cover the outer surface. They are used to restore weak, damaged, cracked or worn down teeth. They can also hold denture or bridge in place. Crowns restore the size, shape and strength of the teeth as well as improving them.
Dental crowns can be made of an alloy of different metals fused to a porcelain outer shell. They can also be full porcelain. Although they are slightly more expensive than metal fused to porcelain crowns, full porcelain or ceramic crowns are better for a natural look. Depending on how well you look after your teeth, crowns can last up to 10-15 years.
Crowns should not be the first choice just to improve the esthetics of teeth because a dentist needs to grind a significant portion of the original tooth away. Less invasive alternatives include veneers or dental bonding. Crowns are required when the tooth supporting the restoration loses its strength, since veneers and dental bonding restorations are only as strong as the supporting tooth.
Rely on us to look the way you feel.

Although a little apprehensive about the prospect of having surgery in a foreign country, I was 100% confident in Global Medical given the professionalism that was displayed by their staff prior to my departure. Any questions that I raised were answered within 24 hours.I would highly recommend Global Medical, as I believe that I received a better level of service then I would have received if I had had surgery in Switzerland.

DENTAL CROWN FAQ

Dental_Crown

Can I eat and drink normally after a crown has been fitted?

No special diet is required when permanent porcelain crowns are fitted. Since they are bounded strongly over the existing teeth, changes in your eating habits will not be required. But you should be careful on eating/drinking very hot and very cold food and beverages.

Do I need any special aftercare?

Even though there is no special aftercare, you will be given post-op instructions for your crowns. You may use a soft toothbrush as advised by your dentist. You should take care of your oral hygiene and have regular dentist appointments. You may be sensitive to hot or cold, so you should stay away from extreme temperatures shortly after the procedure.

How is the crown fitted?

When your dentist is satisfied with the shape and dimension of the material, he will put the crown in place with special dental cement or adhesive. The cement will hold the crown firmly and stick to your tooth. Crown placement may require a significant amount of tooth trimming.
