Crowns

If a tooth has additional in depth decay,

a dental crown is also the perfect  restorative answer.

Choosing to have a crown put in will preserve the natural tooth. Preserving the tooth is our number one goal, natural teeth help your bone structure from decaying. If we can save those teeth, our dentists will explain to you the best possible route to take with keeping your teeth alive and healthy. That is why we express the positivity of crowns.

The first step in this process involves the patient having a check up to access their teeth and what type of crown needing to be applied. A model will be build of the teeth and your bite. This allows us to see what crown can be created and placed in the mouth to not alter your bite and smile. The tooth will be prepped, removing decayed areas of the tooth, and cleaning the tooth for the crown.

Sometime the crown is placed on the same day we do this whole process, however is depends on the crown that needs to be placed or created. Crowns usually last as long as the dentist explains, because timing may vary. To keep the overall life span, use correct oral care and hygiene expressed by the dentist.

There are four common types of crowns:

Ceramic

This type of crown is commonly used for teeth that are the main visible teeth seen when smiling.

 

Porcelain Fused to Metal

These crowns are common for their strength and sturdiness, while giving that natural look and restoration properties.

 

Gold Alloys

Gold alloys are used when additional strength is required. Specifically, for those larger teeth that tend to grind when asleep or do that heavy chewing when eating.

 

Base Metal Alloys

This type of crown is robust and corrosion resistant. Base Metal Alloys are usually used once there is less existing tooth due to decay. It offers structure and support for the crown restoration.
