Restore Your Damaged Tooth with a Quality Dental Crown

dca-blog_article-38_crowns-ideal-functional-cosmetic

A dental crown, also called a cap, is a protective covering that helps restore functionality to a broken, severely decayed, or damaged tooth. In some cases, new dental crowns are made to replace old ones. A full crown treatment covers the entire visible surface of a weakened tooth to stabilize it, and provide a natural-looking appearance. An affordable dentist has many treatment options at his or her disposal, and more conservative treatments should be explored before placement of full dental crowns.

Types of Dental Crowns

The types of dental crowns most commonly used by cosmetic dentists are all ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, and gold. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns provide a durable and attractive tooth surface. One drawback is the tendency for the metal core material to show as a dark line at the base of gums as they recede over time. Crowns with an all-porcelain collar eliminate this problem. All-ceramic crowns offer a metal-free option with light transmission for lifelike characteristics. Because they don’t have a metal core, all-ceramic crowns are thinner, which makes them an ideal choice when space is limited. Gold crowns, while not the best aesthetic choice, provide a more durable solution for molars and for patients who have strong bites or grind their teeth. Gold crowns are less damaging to opposing teeth, and they last longer. Your dentist in Pembroke Pines will help you determine which type of crown is best for you.

Procedure for Placing Dental Crowns

Your dentist will take impressions of your tooth during your consultation so a dental lab can create a custom crown. He or she will explain every step of the crown process, and discuss details such as anesthesia and sedation options. During the crown placement procedure, your dentist will prepare the tooth before placing a temporary crown. If the dental clinic uses CAD/CAM chairside technology, a temporary crown or a separate visit for crown placement won’t be necessary because the permanent crown is created on site. Always follow your dentist’s instructions concerning aftercare and dental hygiene.
