Discover A New Smile And The 4 Benefits Of Dental Crowns
When teeth are badly decayed or fractured, a dental crown, also commonly known as a cap, becomes necessary. In fact, crowns are highly recommended as a preventive measure for weakened teeth. When a crown is placed upon a weakened tooth, it provides the strength the tooth needs to be able to chew effectively without causing any further damage. The tooth gets the support it needs because the crown fits completely around and on top of the tooth.
Conservative treatments like porcelain veneers or bonding can be used when a front tooth has chipped or cracked because it is just a cosmetic procedure. Tooth damage of the severe kind caused by tooth decay or injuries of any kind makes the tooth weak. It will have an unsightly appearance and could cause severe pain along with the inability to chew.
Cosmetic crowns can repair the teeth that are damaged and can also straighten the teeth cosmetically, giving poorly developed teeth a better appearance and hiding discolorations of any kind. The advances made in porcelain technology provide us with all-ceramic material that is not just aesthetic but also durable and strong. To restore the natural look and function of your smile, modern all ceramic material is state of the art and is perhaps one of the best options available. These tooth-colored all-ceramic crowns blend seamlessly around the tooth. The restorations can combine strength and beauty unlike dental restorative measures of other types. Presently, we can help patients achieve a natural-looking smile that will last.
Reasons Why All-Ceramic Material Should Be Used
The answer to this question is straightforward and very simple.
Restorations from all-ceramic crowns do not contain metal, and this factor allows light to shine through them just as it would do with natural teeth. Crowns made from all-ceramic stand out from the rest because of:
- The natural appearance and the highly esthetic appeal they have.
- Their durability and their ability to last long.
- Their range of colors that match the adjacent teeth.
Crowns Can Be Placed Over Dental Implants
Crowns are not only used to protect and beautify the natural teeth, they can also be placed over dental implants. The implant is placed in the site of the lost tooth and the mouth is given the time it needs to heal while the implant fuses to the bone. The porcelain crown is then placed on top of the implant to replace the missing tooth, beautifully restoring complete functionality.
Having dental crowns is a two-step procedure which involves:
- Reshaping the tooth and making an impression of it during the first visit.
- The crown is placed during the second appointment, about 3 to three weeks later and then custom fit to your bite.
The results will be similar to a natural tooth and restore your beautiful smile.
