Tooth crowns are an important, regularly performed dental procedure at Bethlehem Dental Centre, Tauranga, helping address a wide range of oral health problems, while restoring and improving the appearance of decayed, heavily damaged or cracked teeth.
The dentists at Bethlehem Dental Centre consider tooth crowns as a valuable alternative orthodontic dental treatment for adults, and as an indispensable tool to ensure the ongoing oral and dental health of patients.
Tooth crowns are custom built caps, or covers, which may be affixed to a patient’s existing tooth, covering the entire surface of the tooth, giving it a new color, appearance and shape, all while creating a new protective barrier and support structure for the natural tooth.
The dentists at Bethlehem Dental Centre have honed their skills to minimize the impact that fitting tooth crowns will have on patients’ lives, and, in many cases, the entire crowns fitting procedure will require only two appointments.
At the initial appointment, the dentists at Bethlehem Dental Centre will remove a portion of the current tooth to prepare it to be fitted with a custom-made tooth crown. An impression will be made of the prepared teeth, and our dentists will plan and design the shape and color of the new tooth crown. After the new tooth crown is built, patients can return to Bethlehem Dental Centre for fitting. Between the appointments patients may be fitted with a temporary tooth crown.
The skilled dentists of Bethlehem Dental Centre are experts in the latest and most innovative tooth crown procedures, and will ensure that the new impression is as accurate as possible, ensuring that the new tooth crown is as secure and effective, allowing patients to carry on with their daily lives with minimal interruption or inconvenience.
Bethlehem Dental Centre, Tauranga, specializes not only at fitting new tooth crowns, but also at replacing old, discolored and unsightly tooth crowns fitted by other dentists using inferior older technology. In almost all cases, fitting new crowns will completely transform the look of a patient’s teeth, granting our patients a new lease on life and a renewed confidence in their appearance.
