With dental crowns you can have the natural look of healthy teeth instead of damaged or stained teeth. Dental crowns have been used for years by dentists to improve their patients’ natural smiles and advances in the technology that developed this technique has further enhanced the look and feel of today’s procedures.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a tooth shaped cover made of ceramic material that fits over your natural tooth. The color of the ceramic crown can be matched to the shade of white of the teeth surrounding the crown, giving it a very natural look.
For many years dental crowns were made with metal and ceramic on top. But you could see the dark metal underneath the ceramic cover and the tooth didn’t look natural. With today’s technology, all-ceramic crowns are safer than and just as strong as those made with metal. At our studio, we only use all-ceramic materials.
There are a number of reasons why dental crowns may be a good solution for you:
1. Cracked Tooth
When a tooth is cracked but is still has a strong foundation at the root, a dental crown can be used to cover the cracked tooth, holding it together and providing a new tooth surface that is safe, secure and beautiful too.
2. Decayed Tooth
Fillings are usually the first line of defense when a tooth has sustained decay. But when the decay has created a cavity too large for a filling, but the tooth still has a good foundation, an all-ceramic crown may be another solution. We would clear the tooth of all decay and rebuild the tooth to create a solid foundation for the crown to be attached to. Your damaged and decayed tooth is then replaced by a healthy crown that looks natural.
Everyone understands the seemingly never-ending battle of keeping teeth white and stain free. But some stains and discoloration are due to illnesses, medications, or other factors, and cannot be cleaned away completely. An otherwise healthy tooth simply looks dull. All-ceramic crowns cover the stains that won’t go away, leaving you with a beautiful healthy tooth that compliments your natural smile.
When it is time for crowns to correct the look and health of your teeth, we use only ceramic for your dental crown procedure. And we use the latest in CEREC technology to create your ceramic crowns more quickly and with more precision than ever before!
