Decayed or chipped teeth cause pain and awkwardness that can be decreased entirely with a simple dental crown. If you’re seeking to restore the form, function, and appearance of your teeth, Crown is a convenient and permanently secured solution. Dental Crowns can help you fortify the teeth by large filling when there are not enough teeth available for filling. A large metal filling in a tooth can break off significant portions of your tooth due to the forces of biting and chewing. It can produce sharp and consistent pain and can also affect the health of your surrounding teeth. Our incredibly advanced precise microscope-assisted lab technology will ensure that all the dental crowns fit perfectly at our San Diego office.
Crowns are tooth-shaped dental restorations that are either used as a covering for the teeth or implants. These tooth-shaped caps, when cemented, encase the visible portion of the teeth at/above the gums.
What are Crowns Made of?
The Crowns are made from various materials. Some of the options are porcelain bonded to precious metal, simple porcelain, ceramic, glass, and gold alloys. According to The American Dental Association (ADA), there are both pros and cons for each material used. But our dentist will address which material is best suited to your needs.
Dentists usually recommend Porcelain Crowns for:
• Dental implants,
• Attached bridges,
• Protection for teeth with root canal treatment,
• To cover fractured, discolored or misshapen teeth
• As a replacement for a large filling with only a small portion of the teeth remaining.
Your dentist will professionally decide whether you indeed require porcelain crowns or can other alternative procedures be used.
For the placement of a Crown, the doctor will fill the damaged teeth with enamel to create a setting for the tooth cap. Anesthetics will apply to the patient during this time to avoid any discomfort. Once filled, a mold is taken and sent to the laboratory for production. Meanwhile, a temporary crown is placed during the time, a permanent crown arrives. Once it comes, the dentist will provide the anesthetic to the patient. Then, fix the Crown Dental in place with the help of a special dental cement/adhesive. The Crown will make the look of your teeth original and natural. Usually, such a procedure will take at least two visits. It may take some getting used to, but eventually, the Crown will feel the same as your actual teeth.
Crowns can’t decay, but the surrounding area can. Thus, it’s essential to keep the Crown cleaned like the rest of your teeth. Brush your teeth twice, morning and night, and use ‘interdental’ teeth cleaning products.
Dental Crown is considered to be the best alternative to an implant. It offers extra protection and strength while preserving one’s natural tooth. If one is showing any of the signs mentioned, set up an appointment with Orange Family Dental San Diego to get Low-Cost Dental Crown.
