Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that big portions of the tooth has to be eliminated, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a cracked tooth from becoming worse, attach bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should generally be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special lab, which manufactures a custom-made crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is applied until the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are sometimes mistaken as veneers, but they are quite different. Veneers are usually applied just to fairly small areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

With appropriate care, a good quality crown could last up to eight years or longer. It is crucial to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly reduce the life of a crown. Furthermore, eating hard foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, and even harm the crown.




Same Day Teeth Restorations

CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of areas requiring restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will create and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to produce your crown.

CEREC can be used for a broad range of indications: inlays, onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns and veneers.

Dental Bonding (Composite)

Bonding is a procedure where we use a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to solidify, and polish it. It can be used in certain scenarios where a tooth has actually been damaged or become stained. These are normally minor repairs, ones that can be resolved through this relatively affordable means instead of through a more pricey dental treatment.

Here Is How It Works:
Bonding includes adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth, to the front of the tooth. This is done to fix damage done to the tooth by decay, to alter the positioning of the tooth, close spaces in between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface of the tooth is roughened in order to accept the bonding and hold it. A gel is applied to micro etch the tooth surface area, and a primer/bond agent is applied so the material sticks to the surface. Then the material itself is positioned on the tooth and hardened with intense light. The composite resin material is shaped and polished to obtain a glossy finish as a last step.
