The Highest Standard of Dental Crown Care
Crowns cover or "cap" a tooth to restore the normal function and appearance of a tooth. Crowns may be made from metal, porcelain, or both. Crowns are indicated for teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have had a root canal, fractured teeth, worn teeth and misshapen and/or discolored teeth. Crowns are cemented onto the existing tooth and becomes the outer surface of the tooth.
Our clinic is located in Newcastlewest, a 40 minute drive from Limerick City. We have plentiful on-site parking and our premises is fully wheelchair accessible.
Dr. Shane Mullane is our in-house specialist Prosthodontist. A prosthodontist is a dentist who has completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program. They specialize in treating and handling dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing tooth and jaw structures. A prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD), and sleep apnoea.
Typically crowns involves two appointments. At the first appointment, an impression is made of the tooth or teeth, and a temporary bridge is made which will protect the tooth until the next appointment. At the second appointment, the final bridge is fitted to the tooth and cemented. For teeth in the smile line, sometimes a lab technician will be present in order to match the color of the adjacent teeth for a perfect match.
