Dental Crowns

Badly Broken or Decayed Teeth?

Crowns Are Your Most Effective Solution

Restoring teeth with crowns is one of the most common dental procedures performed today. Every day, thousands of people have crowns inserted to repair all types of oral issues. But regardless of how common the procedure is, dental crowns are sometimes misunderstood. In fact, some people are frightened by the idea of having a crown restoration.

In reality, dental crowns are not only vitally important, but they perform crucial functions for maintaining oral health.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are fixed tooth restorations that are designed to return a damaged tooth back to its original shape and size. They’re permanently secured, and they basically replace the crown part of a natural tooth.

When secured in place, the crown completely encloses the portion of the damaged tooth above the gum line. Crowns are custom made to fit and can be made of a variety of different materials.

In each case, the crown replaces or supports a structure that can no longer work on its own by reestablishing the shape, alignment, and appearance of a damaged tooth.

And because they’re designed to look like natural teeth, they don’ t stand out.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are four basic types of dental crowns.

  • Gold alloys: This crown is created using a mix of copper, gold, and other metals. It provides a strong bond to the tooth, doesn’t fracture, and doesn’t wear the tooth away.
  • Base metal alloys: This robust crown is made utilizing metals that resist corrosion.
  • Ceramic: The ceramic version is typically used for restoring front teeth because of its ability to blend in with your natural tooth color.
  • Porcelain-fused to metal: This type of crown delivers a stronger bond because it’s attached to a metal structure, making it extremely durable.

Advantages of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns provide a solution to a range of dental issues, including:

  • Supporting a tooth that has been considerably damaged by decay;
  • Protecting a tooth following a root canal procedure;
  • Preventing a severely broken or cracked tooth from further damage;
  • Protecting a tooth that has worn away;
  • Improves the appearance of a tooth by changing its color or shape;
  • Covers a dental implant.

Crowns are a great long-term option because they are robust and typically last for at least 5-15 years, which makes it appealing to dental patients. The treatment has a high success rate as compared to other dental restoration methods.

While crowns are not the solution to every kind of tooth issue, they might be the answer to yours. If you think you need a crown, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
