Dental Crowns Are A Great Option To Repair And Beautify Teeth
When teeth are badly decayed or fractured a dental crown, which is commonly known, as a cap becomes a necessity. 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 slightly or even 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 that 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, give poorly developed teeth a better appearance and also hide discolorations of any kind. The advances made in porcelain technology provides 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 the best option available. These tooth-colored all ceramic crowns blend seamlessly around the tooth. These 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 really easy.
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 from all ceramic standout from the rest because of their:
- The natural appearance and the highly esthetic appeal they have.
- Their durability and their ability to last long.
- Their range of colors to match the adjacent teeth.
Crowns Can Also Be Placed Over Implants
Protecting and beautifying the natural teeth is not the only reason why crowns can be used because they can also be placed over dental implants. The implant is placed in the site of the lost tooth and given the time it needs to heal and fuse strongly to the bone. The porcelain crown is then placed on top 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 2 to three weeks later and even fine-tuned for the bite and the fit.
The results will be similar to a natural tooth and also give out a pleasing appearance.
