A smile plays an important role in one’s social presence, and for that having beautiful healthy teeth is something you’ll need. 4th and Morris Dentistry offers advanced dental crown placement to help you get perfectly aligned, stainless teeth.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental Crowns are tooth-shaped caps used to fit over the damaged tooth. It is custom-made and can be restored permanently. These crowns are also used during Dental Implants when the surgeon replaces the missing tooth.
The crown is fixed in the artificial root, known as implants, to provide you the same comfort as you feel with your natural teeth.
Why Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Dental Crowns provide your teeth strength, functionality, shape, and size and improve their overall appearance.
Apart from this reason, Crowns are necessary for situations like:
- Protect the weak, cracked, or decayed teeth to hold them together and prevent them from breaking.
- Restore already broken tooth
- Replaces broken, old, and falling dental fillings
- Modifies the teeth by filling up the gaps between them
- Holds Dental Bridges in place
- Covers a Dental Implants
Types of Dental Crown
Dental Crowns are made of materials like porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, metal, composite resin, and a combination of materials.
Materials for Dental Crowns are chosen by considering the following factors:
- Location of the tooth
- The amount of tooth seen while smiling
- Position of the gum tissue
- The amount of natural tooth remaining
- Color of the surrounding teeth
Moreover, there are other types of Dental Crowns that include:
● Temporary Crown
A temporary crown is fixed in your mouth for a short period. It is placed using an easily removable adhesive. It is always used when the creation of a permanent crown is in progress.
● One-Day Crown
You will be surprised to know that you can get your crown in just one day. It is done with the help of methods like computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
● Onlay or ¾ Crown
Onlay or ¾ crown covers only the portion of the tooth. People who are not fond of a full crown choose this type of crown.
Procedure Of Dental Crowns
The procedure for Dental Crown includes:
During the first visit to a dental clinic, the dentist examines your teeth, and by examine, we mean taking an X-Ray of the tooth that requires the crown.
- Then, an impression is taken of your teeth or mouth.
- Next, the teeth are filled, and your dentist removes a part of the outer layer.
- The dentist will put a temporary dental crown until your second visit to the clinic.
- During the second visit, your dentist appropriately fixes the crown using permanent adhesive.
The entire procedure is relatively effortless and effective in improving the overall appearance of your smile.
