COSMETIC DENTAL VENEERS



Updated On Sunday, February 17, 2019 12:09:09 AM

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

Crowns are typically used to bring back a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has actually ended up being so advanced that big parts of the tooth needs to be taken out, crowns are frequently used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent 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 an aesthetic use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be brought back to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth should usually be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent to a unique lab, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is used till the permanent crown is prepared. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases confused with veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are typically applied just to fairly little locations.

Caring For Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown might last as much as eight years or longer. It is essential to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

Particular habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming hard foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps break the crown.

UltraSonic Tooth Cleaning

We use ultrasonic scalers for most adult dental cleanings. These devices utilize ultrasonic vibrations to help breakdown the plaque and calculus on the teeth that trigger gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ultrasonic cleaners create microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, eliminating microorganisms and removing plaque and tartar at the same time. Our instruments use a thin tip to better navigate in the gum pockets to help keep optimal gingival health.


  • The treatment only uses water, no chemicals are used.

  • It can get rid of tartar buildup in hard-to-reach locations, without any damage to the tooth enamel.

  • Manual scaling frequently uses pressure for cleaning, while the vibration produced by the scaling tip of an ultrasonic scaler is barely perceptible. This makes ultrasonic cleaning suitable to those with sensitive teeth.

  • The cleaning process is much faster than manual scaling making your visit more comfortable.


After your teeth have been cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner, your teeth will be hand scaled to look for any residual deposits and then polished.
