Crowns are similar to veneers in that they are like new enamel for the teeth. Unlike veneers crowns cover the entire tooth not just the front and are therefore the option of choice when the entire tooth needs to be reshaped. Cosmetic crowns are made entirely of porcelain and mimic natural tooth structure in such a way as to be completely undetectable. Often the edges of the crown are placed slightly below the gum resulting in an invisible natural look.
Types of Dental Crowns
There are several types of dental crowns available, each with its own unique advantages. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are two of the most popular types of dental crowns we offer. They are highly durable and can be custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are also resistant to staining and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Gold crowns are another choice, as they are strong and durable and can be used to restore the shape and size of a tooth. No matter which type of dental crown you choose, it is important to consult with your dentist to determine the best option for your needs. We can help you decide which type of crown is best for your smile.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns can provide a variety of benefits to our patients. They can be used to strengthen and protect a weak or damaged tooth, restore a broken tooth, improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth, and provide additional support for a dental bridge.
Dental crowns are also a great way to cover a dental implant or to complete a root canal procedure. With a dental crown, our patients can enjoy improved dental health and a beautiful smile.
Preparation for Dental Crowns
Before a dental crown can be placed, the tooth must be prepared. This involves reshaping the tooth to make room for the crown and ensuring the crown will fit properly. We use the latest technology and techniques to prepare teeth for dental crowns. Dr. Whicker will assess the tooth and use specialized tools to reshape it.
After the tooth is prepared, we will take an impression of it and send it to a dental laboratory, where the crown will be created. Once the crown is ready, we will attach it to the tooth with high-strength dental cement or bonding material.
Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and ensuring our patients receive the best possible results. If you need a dental crown, our experienced staff can provide you with the care and attention you need.
