Cosmetic Crowns, but Natural Looking, Just like you Wanted, Only Provided by our Signature Ceramics

It is not an unfamiliar term, most people have heard about a Crown or “Cap” at some point during their past dentist visit or had someone you know comment about their own treatment with a crown. Either our dental specialist has performed a Dévitalisation (root canal) and advises a premier signature crown as the long-term restorative option for your tooth or during a more thorough examination of large broken down fillings, chipped or cracked teeth has suggested protecting your remaining teeth structure with crowns. But what in fact is a crown and why would you opt to have one placed by our cosmetic specialists at Artiste Studios?


Crowns are required when the strength of the tooth supporting the filling is compromised; the crown will cup over and encase the tooth on which they are placed. This means that a crown can act as a splint that binds a tooth together. This is a very important feature of dental crowns and one that makes them a very valuable type of restoration for Artiste Studios to have available to our patients. We employ the latest techniques and feature Procera, Cerec, Empress, Inceram, Procad along with our Signature Ceramics for crowns.


If your tooth has undergone significant decay and there is not enough tooth structure remaining to support a filling or a ceramic inlay whilst maintain functionality, a crown could be the solution. A fractured tooth, either due to an accident or a large cavity where a large portion of the tooth is missing and cannot be built up using traditional composite bonding techniques may also lead to having a crown placed. Another less obvious reason to be recommended a crown is if you grind your teeth and have a poor diet since acid erosion may reduce your teeth to such a state that in order to reinforce their structure the option of a precious metal with ceramic crown would work best to save the remaining tooth and restore its original shape. Of course if you have discoloured, misshapen or misaligned teeth, crowns can also be an option to improve the aesthetics of your smile.


Possibly you have heard that certain movie stars have had their teeth "capped." This simply means that the person has obtained their "Hollywood smile" by way of having crowns placed. You may opt for superior aesthetics with our signature metal-free technology ceramic crowns which won’t leave you with a dark line near the gum as you may have already seen with other conventional crowns.


If you are wondering whether a crown is the right option for you, our specialists at Artiste Studios will be able to assess, diagnose and offer the appropriate type of crown for your situation. Bear in mind that crowns should not be the first choice if you are only looking to improve the aesthetics of your teeth; we have less invasive alternatives available which include veneers or dental bonding that won’t require as much trimming of your tooth in order to fit. Remember, crowns are required when the strength of the tooth supporting the restoration is compromised, since veneers and dental bonding restorations are only as strong as the supporting tooth.
