Dental Crowns Explained
What are dental crowns? They are tooth-shaped caps for your teeth. Each one is shaped to look like the tooth it will cover, and they’re color-matched to fit in with your smile. The dental crown procedure is simple as well.
Dental crowns are used for many problems with your smile:
- Chips and cracks caused by injuries or accidents.
- Cavities that grew too big for a regular dental filling.
- Worn edges and biting surfaces.
- Weak spots caused by teeth grinding.
- Brittle enamel caused by an infection.
- A tooth that had a root canal.
At our Pompano Beach, FL dental office, you can get three different kinds of dental crowns.
- e.max porcelain: This crown is very thin but very strong. It also reflects light the same way that enamel does, helping them look that much more natural.
- Zirconia: This material is the hardest, most durable available for dental crowns. It’s great for your molars.
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal: This dental crown combines the beauty of porcelain with the strength of metal underneath it.
By calling our Pompano Beach, FL dental office today, you can be one step closer to restoring, protecting, and beautifying your teeth. Here’s how dental crowns do all of that.
Restoring Teeth With Dental Crowns
Repair a cavity too big for a dental filling: Normally, a filling can be used to repair the damage and make your tooth healthy and strong once more. However, a big cavity doesn’t have enough healthy enamel for the filling to bond with. It would just fall out. Thankfully, you can use a dental crown to seal up the cavity.
Replace teeth as part of a dental bridge or dental implant: No matter how you lost that tooth, the empty gap in your smile from it looks bad and makes chewing harder. Dental bridges and dental implants both use dental crowns as tough but natural-looking replacement teeth.
Call us today at 954-590-0538 to schedule your next appointment for dental crowns. Our dentists are highly trained to use dental crowns to correct cavities, chops, cracks, and even missing teeth.
Protecting Teeth With Dental Crowns
Strengthen teeth weakened by bruxism: Bruxism is the technical name for grinding your teeth all the time. That grinding creates worn spots on your enamel, weakening your teeth. Since you cannot regrow enamel, dental crowns can be used to cover and protect those teeth.
Supporting enamel that grew brittle thanks to an infection: If the bacteria behind cavities gets into your tooth, it infects the dental pulp found there. Because this is where the blood vessels for the tooth are found, it starves your tooth and makes your enamel easy to crack. Dental crowns add a durable layer of protection to these brittle teeth.
By calling our Pompano Beach, FL dental office today, you can schedule an appointment to protect your teeth with dental crowns. Our dentists have been helping people protect weak teeth for many years, giving them the experience to match their training.
Beautifying Teeth With Dental Crowns
Hide stains: Your enamel gets stained by just about anything dark you eat or drink. That includes coffee, wine, tomato sauce, and much more. But you can also get intrinsic stains so deep that no teeth whitening system can help. That’s when you can use dental crowns to cover those teeth so they look great again.
Cover over worn edges or irregular shapes: Some people’s teeth are just naturally irregular. Others wear down their teeth with grinding or just chewing. Either way, you end up with a tooth that doesn’t look right. Since dental crowns cover the visible part of your teeth, they’ll hide those imperfects.
Call our Pompano Beach, FL dental office today at 954-590-0538 to schedule your next appointment for a dental crown. This restorative dentistry treatment can be used for many problems with your teeth. If you are looking to restore, protect, or beautify your teeth, then call Restorative & Implant Dentistry today.
