Why Pick Single Visit Crowns?

It is extremely important for a person to have a strong and healthy set of teeth. However, there are some cases where dental cavity development is unavoidable. It is often triggered by the person's diet, habits and hygiene. Cavities that are not fixed early might cause extensive damage to the tooth's enamel which might need a dental crown to restore its natural appearance and function.

A dental crown is a cap shaped like a tooth which is used to cover the tooth that has gone through extensive damage brought on by dental cavities. Getting it generally needs 2 dental visits. Throughout the very first visit, your damaged tooth is cleaned and the decayed part is removed. The dentist will then get the impression of your tooth that required the crown and will send it to a dental laboratory where traditional dental crowns were made. It could be made from a metal, ceramic or porcelain material. Only throughout the 2nd visit, your custom-fitted dental crown is cemented to your broken tooth.

With the development in dental technology, the procedure of getting and wearing a dental crown has been made readily available. Dentists use the new technology in making inlays/onlays, crowns and veneers. After your damaged tooth is prepared, they will use an intraoral camera that will take the picture of your affected tooth and have it submitted to a computer. It will use a computer-aided design in taking the digital impression of your teeth and the impression is transferred to the computer-aided manufacturing machine which will mill a color-matched ceramic block to your same day crowns. Picking a same day crown over a traditional dental crown has its advantages and disadvantages.

Today We Will Be Talking About:

Fillings

Fillings are done to eliminate decay, and replace the afflicted tooth structure. It is called a filling since new material fills the hole that the decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would require a root canal treatment or extraction.

There are two kinds of fillings; amalgam or silver fillings, and composite or white fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth. Most dentists provide both kinds of fillings, but find that a lot of their patients choose the composite fillings.

The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.

Composite fillings provide excellent resilience and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to endure moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this might lead to a smaller filling than with of an amalgam.

In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively attached, to the tooth, frequently allowing a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry during the whole filling procedure and they go through stain and staining with time. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend significantly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.

Composite filling material is also frequently used to repair front teeth that have cracked or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is generally much less expensive than veneers or crowns. However, bonding normally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
