If you have pain on biting then you may have a crack or fracture in your tooth. This will need to be treated as soon as possible before it worsens which may result in dental decay or a large part of the tooth breaking off requiring you to have a dental crown. There are different types of crowns that can be made depending on the extent of breakdown, the position of the tooth and the biting forces that the tooth is subjected to. Ask your dentist about each option and what is best for you and your tooth.
The process of making a dental crown
There are many steps involved in making a dental crown. The tooth needs to be prepared and an accurate mould taken. This is sent to the laboratory where the dental technician creates a customised crown for your tooth. This will need to be carefully fitted and assessed for appropriate function and aesthetics.
