Whether you need a new dental crown or want to replace an old crown, Buckle Advanced Dental Care in the Liverpool area will provide you with a stable, beautiful result. A dental crown is a common type of dental restoration. A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. Using aesthetic, tooth-like materials, a customized “tooth cap” is placed over the tooth to restore its strength and improve its appearance. They are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. A dental crown can be color matched to blend seamlessly with your smile for beautiful results.
Dr. Ian Buckle, a Liverpool dentist, may recommend a dental crown for any of the following dental problems or cosmetic concerns:
- Repair damaged or worn teeth
- Restore balance to the bite
- Support a dental implant or dental bridge
- Protect teeth that have undergone root canal therapy
- Improve the appearance of misshapen, misaligned or discoloured teeth
Replacing an Old Dental Crown & Metal Filling
Traditionally, a dental crown needed to have a metal foundation. These left patients with unsightly dark lines around their dental crowns. Dr. Buckle uses only pure porcelain, ceramic or aesthetic reinforced resins to create durable dental crowns. Dr. Buckle will replace your old dental crown or metal filling with a metal-free dental crown that will blend beautifully with the existing tooth and surrounding gum for a virtually undetectable restoration.
Same Day Dental Crown
Thanks to CEREC technology, Dr. Buckle can offer his patients a same day porcelain dental crown at his Liverpool dentist office. In just one visit, we can design, fabricate and then immediately place a porcelain dental crown. CEREC utilizes CAD/CAM technology to ensure that the porcelain dental crown will fit perfectly over a decayed or damaged tooth, eliminating the need for a temporary crown. This also eliminates the need for messy dental impressions. You will be able to eat and drink normally following your appointment with little to no pain or sensitivity.
