Dental crowns protect the structural integrity of a tooth. Bayswater Dental Clinic provides aesthetic dental crowns for a more beautiful smile in addition to functional dental crowns. our clinic is conveniently located in central London, W2.

Dental crowns, also known as caps or cuspal coverage, are devised to keep together and protect the damaged teeth for a better function or better appearance. Teeth with large fillings, root treated teeth or fractured teeth can be crowned to make teeth more durable against wear and tear.

WHY A DENTAL CROWN IS NEEDED?

A dental crown is needed when a tooth is structurally compromised and is weak. In other words, there is little tooth tissue left to support any other form of restoration, for example, a filling. By placing a dental crown on a tooth, which acts like a hat covering ahead, the integrity of the tooth is protected better. This reduces the risk of fracture and breakage of the tooth.

WHEN A DENTAL CROWN IS NEEDED?

There are many situations that would necessitate the need of placing a dental crown on a tooth. The most common reasons are

  1. When a tooth has a large filling. For example when the size of the filling is larger than what is left of the tooth.
  2. When a tooth is broken and a chunk of it is missing.
  3. When a tooth is fractured or cracked.
  4. When a tooth has had root canal treatment.
  5. When a tooth is discoloured and for better aesthetic (if the veneer is not advisable)

WHAT IS AN ALTERNATIVE OPTION TO A DENTAL CROWN?

The principle behind having a dental crown is to protect the structure of a tooth further as a dental crown fully covers a tooth. If it is possible to achieve this without fully covering the tooth, then we can consider alternative options such as only or 3/4 dental crowns. These alternative options are designed to reduce the amount of drilling that is needed for restoring a tooth.

rating star icon LondonAs always the best treatment; on this occasion a visit to hygienist followed by dental check up. I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!

rating star icon LondonHad my wisdom tooth out, was the quickest and least painful dental procedure ever. Melanie and the dental assistant were so patient. Constantly letting me know exactly what was going on and checking that I couldn’t feel anything. Would recommend everybody to use this dentist practice!

WHAT TYPE OF DENTAL CROWNS ARE AVAILABLE?

There are many different types of dental crowns that have been developed over many decades. They are mainly categorised by the type of materials used to make the dental crown. The most common types used can be categorised into:

  1. All metallic dental crowns which can be made from precious or non-precious metal.
  2. All ceramic dental crowns which are mostly used in the aesthetic zone of the mouth. They can be made from a variety of materials such as porcelain, zirconium, lava, etc..
  3. Combination of a metal core with a type of ceramic on top for better aesthetics.

The oldest material, and still the best material for dental crowns is gold. Because of its colour, they are not used in aesthetic zones in modern dentistry, unless a patient wishes to specifically have a gold dental crown. They are, however, the best choice of dental crown material for back teeth which are not visible. Its disadvantage is only the cost as gold is an expensive material.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A DENTAL CROWN?

It depends what type of crown is used and for what purposes. But as a guide, the cost of a dental crown can be based on these criteria;

  1. Type of material used
  2. Skill and experience of the dentist
  3. Quality of the lab used and the experience and skill of the technician making the crown.
  4. Whether an aesthetic crown is made for a nicer smile.
  5. What technique is used for making the dental crown?

rating star icon LondonGreat customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.

It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)

rating star icon LondonOwing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.
