Dental crown

Dental crowns in Oslo

Dental crowns are a type of dental treatment that involves placing an artificial tooth shell over an existing tooth to repair damage or strengthen the tooth. We offer a variety of materials, including porcelain and ceramic, to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. A dental crown can also be used to cover a tooth that has undergone a root canal.


What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a prosthesis that covers and protects the entire visible part of the tooth. Dental crowns can be used to repair damaged, worn or weakened teeth. They can also be used to give an aesthetic boost to your teeth. Dental crowns can be made of different materials, including porcelain, ceramic, gold and other metals. We will help you choose the right material for your situation.

Why do I need a dental crown?

There may be several reasons why you need a dental crown, including:

  • A tooth is severely damaged or destroyed due to trauma, caries or other disease.
  • A tooth is weakened due to extensive tooth decay or tooth wear.
  • You have a discolored or misshapen tooth that you want to improve aesthetically.
  • You have undergone root canal treatment and the tooth needs a crown to protect it.

How long will a dental crown last?

A dental crown can last for many years if it is well cared for. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental appointments to ensure that the dental crown stays strong and healthy. We will provide you with information and advice on how to care for your dental crown, and we also recommend avoiding biting into hard foods or using your teeth as tools, so that you can enjoy the lasting functionality and aesthetics of your dental crown.

Are dental crowns painful?

No, the process of inserting a dental crown is usually painless. Before the procedure, we will give you local anesthesia to ensure that you do not feel pain during the procedure. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or tooth sensitivity for a few days after the procedure, but this will subside over time.

Dental Health Tips:

  • Brush your teeth properly: Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Clean between the teeth: Use dental floss or interdental brushes daily to remove plaque and food debris that the brush cannot reach.
  • Visit the dentist regularly: Go to the dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks that can lead to tooth decay. Eat more fruits, vegetables and calcium-rich foods to maintain strong teeth.
  • Avoid tobacco products: Smoking and sniffing can cause dental problems and gum disease. Try to stop or reduce the use of these products for better dental health.
  • Protect your teeth during activities: Use a mouth guard during sports activities or when you perform activities with a risk of tooth damage.
  • Care for dentures: If you have dentures, be sure to clean them regularly and store them safely to avoid damage and infection.
