A jacket crown is a full porcelain ceramic covered crown which is used to protect the entire surface of a tooth. Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken or weakened by decay or large fillings. Crowns are fitted over the remaining part of the tooth to make it strong and give it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns may also be used to help whiten, reshape and realign existing teeth. Jacket crowns have the translucency of a natural tooth and are often recommended for anterior teeth.
Jacket crown is a tooth shaped protective cap which is used as a covering over a tooth that is chipped, broken or otherwise damaged to create a permanently restored, functional and aesthetic natural look to teeth.
These crowns and bridgework will not corrode, and the normal black gum line that you might see around a porcelain fused metal crown will not occur, because of the strong ceramic material which is used. Also the hot and cold sensations you might feel with other crowns normally do not occur because of the lack of electrical conductivity.
What To Expect After You Have Your Jacket Crown?
Right after your new crown is cemented, you may experience some sensitivity to cold. This is normal because the tooth and the surrounding area might be slightly irritated during the procedure. You might also feel that your bite is off in the first couple of days. If the “off” feeling still persists after that, it might require a slight adjustment.
It is very important that you maintain excellent oral hygiene with your new crown or bridge. A crowned tooth might give the wrong impressions that it won’t decay like your natural teeth but it is still susceptible to decay near the gumline. You should continue to brush and floss as normal.
Jacket crowns are durable but they still have potential to fracture the same as a natural tooth. Avoid doing anything with a crown or bridge that could damage a natural tooth. Do not chew ice as extreme temperature change increases the fracture of crowns and natural teeth
I am so happy with my new smile
Ive just finished the 2nd step of my treatment with Tourmedical, I was here in 2015 and started my treatment. This year I came back and did some more. I had neglected my teeth really from an early age so over time, am sorting all my problems. I have total confidence in the dentist and her team and am so happy with my new smile.
I am over the moon with my new smile
I had problems with my front teeth from an early age, had immediate work done after an accident but was never happy with my smile. Dreamt of the day when I could afford to have the smile of my dreams. I found Tourmedical on the internet and was impressed with how professional the website was, checked out all the video reviews and felt confident that their Cosmetic Dentist could solve my problem for me.
I made contact with them and was contacted immediately, I sent photos of my smile and they came back to me with a treatment plan that was within my budget. We booked our family holiday for 2 weeks and in the first few days of our holiday, my treatment was carried out, thought id have to wait until after my treatment to start to enjoy my holiday but it didn’t effect it in any way. I had pain free treatment, in a 5 star clinic and I am over the moon with my new smile.
I am so happy ...
I was so afraid before this to go to the dentist, The dentist and staff put me at ease straightaway and I am so happy with my new teeth. The dentist is so professional and a perfectionist.
I have my beautiful smile
I found Tourmedical on line and am absolutely delighted I did. Im amazed about the whole process how easy and quick everything was from step 1. We made our enquiry, Majella was back to us immediately and asked me for photos to show her Cosmetic Dentist and to get advice on what was the best way forward for me, as had no idea. The whole procedure was so relaxed. Their driver picked us up from the hotel & he was so nice and made us feel totally at ease and took us to the clinic and thee we were met by a smiling team, who looked after us. My husband and daughter were given refreshments while I had my treatment carried out and the place is amazing, staff and Cosmetic dentist are so so nice, and now I have my beautiful smile.
Thank you so much.
