Crowns in Dublin
If your tooth has broken off or you want to improve its appearance, you may need a crown. First of all, your dentist will trim down the tooth to get it ready to take the crown. Then over the course of one or sometimes two visits, a crown is fitted.
At Merrion Square Dental we use Nacera crowns.
Crowns are available in many materials such as gold and porcelain but we use Nacera.
Nacera is manufactured from yttrium-stabilised zirconium dioxide for specific use in dental fields. Nacera is used for partial crowns, onlays, inlays, veneers and bridges.
Crowns can be a great option if your tooth has broken down, is cracked, decayed or beyond repair. Your dentist will fit a crown over the top of the decayed tooth which will retain the remains of the tooth but will provide an outer barrier against bacteria. Think of it as structural
A tooth that has very little structure may be built back up again using filling. The procedure usually entails a small local anaesthetic. After the final shaping of the tooth, your dentist will talk to you about the Nacera material with you. Size and shape will be discussed also.
