Why is a Dental Crown Needed?

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  1. To protect a weak tooth from breaking due to poor emamel or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth or a heavily restored tooth.
  2. To restore an already broken tooth
  3. To cover a misshapened or severely discolored teeth for cosmetic reasons
  4. To restore a missing tooth alongside a Dental Implant
  5. To make a cosmetic modification due to wear

Our Dentists here at Dove Dental Care are  happy to discuss treatment options for crowns with you, from Full Gold Crowns to the latest all Ceramic porcelain cosmetic crowns.

There’s no need to be afraid of coming to the Dentist, Dove Dental Care in Derby offers Sedation Dentistry in a relaxing environment

Many patients feel self-conscious about dental treatment and nervous about visiting the dentist. At Dove Dental Care we offer special care to our anxious patients through two forms of sedation to make their appointments more comfortable and relaxing.

The first type is called intravenous or IV sedation. The sedative drug is injected in a controlled manner, so that you feel relaxed during the dental treatment. The second type is inhalation sedation, which is good if you don’t like needles. A small mask is placed over your nose and mouth, and you breathe in a mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This gas mixture will make you feel calm during your dental appointment. You remain awake and aware while receiving the sedation, but you will experience a deep sensation of peace and relaxation, while the team work on your teeth.

Our friendly team of dentists and nurses are specially trained to deliver these types of sedation and will make sure you are safe and comfortable at all times during your visit.

Don’t let your fear of the dentist stop you from looking after your teeth.

Prices start from £129
