Gregory Abrams Davidson LLP – Specialist Dental Negligence Solicitors: Crowns

Here at Gregory Abrams Davidson LLP, we have a specialist Dental Negligence Department dealing with a variety of dental negligence claims. Your case will be handled by a fully qualified Solicitor who specialises in claims of this type.

 We can assist in cases concerning failed dental crowns.

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.  Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.   They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.

 Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.  The most common method of crowning a tooth is by taking a dental impression of the prepared tooth and then having the crown made at a dental laboratory. The crown can then be inserted at a subsequent dental appointment.

WHY CAN PROBLEMS DEVELOP?

 For the successful placement of any crown, it is essential that they are of such accuracy that the gap between the crown and the tooth cannot be seen with the naked eye or allow entry of the tip of a probe.  In addition, overhangs or deficiencies should not exceed 0.5mm and the embrasures should be large enough to allow access for oral hygiene measures.

 Failure to achieve these long recognised standards can result in decay developing in the underlying tooth and the crown will inevitably fail.

 If you believe you have suffered an injury as a result of poor dental treatment, we would recommend that you contact us to arrange a free consultation with a specialist dental negligence Solicitor.
