Crowns can be made from metal and metal free materials with more modern materials such as metal free white Zirconia giving strength to the more cosmetic tooth like porcelain on top.
Crowns are made from the following materials:
Porcelain Bonded to metal :
The crowns metal framework gives the natural looking porcelain its strength. We used an award-winning cosmetic technician to handcraft these, like a bespoke piece of jewellery.
Porcelain Bonded to Zirconia:
More modern highly cosmetic crowns are metal free and are given their strength by zirconia framework. Handcrafted by an award-winning cosmetic technician.
Gold Shell Crowns:
Not just for the bling factor, these thin but extremely hard wearing crowns are best suited to the back of the mouth where the chewing forces are greatest and there are no cosmetic concerns.
Composite and Acrylic Crowns
Relatively low cost and quick to produce but with limited strength than the former alternatives. These may be used as temporary solutions in visible areas at the front of the mouth.
I love my dentist now!
I am a very nervous patient and I haven’t had much luck with dentists in the past. so I was apprehensive joining this new surgery. However from my first conversations with the lovely receptionists to my most recent treatment, I have had great service. Every time I leave with a smile, I can honestly say that I am no longer scared of visiting the dentist.
I saw Dr Rob Hanna for my checkup this afternoon and was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
Very professional and thorough throughout my appointment. Everything was explained and I was made to feel at ease from start to finish.
As soon as I finished my dental checkup I was seen by Charlotte my hygienist. Once again my appointment was professional and thorough and I came away very impressed with my treatment and the way I was looked after.
Would recommend Hampshire Dentists to anybody that was looking for a dentist.
This dentist is wonderful. Everyone is so happy and helpful, they have really helped me over the years. Special shout out to Cadge who is so lovely and caring, always asking if I’m okay and checking in throughout the appointment. Thank you all! 😊
