CROWNS TO CAD



Updated On Wednesday, September 19, 2018 06:52:15 AM

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

Crowns are generally used to bring back a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that big parts of the tooth must be eliminated, crowns are typically used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is at risk of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth has to be brought back to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth must usually be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special lab, which makes a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is applied till the long-term crown is ready. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are quite different. Veneers are generally applied just to fairly little locations.

Caring For Your Crowns

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

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




Same Day Crown Restorations

CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of locations needing restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed 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 need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to fabricate your crown.

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

Dental Bonding (Composite)

Bonding is a procedure in which we use a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden, and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has actually been broken or ended up being stained. These are typically minor repairs, ones that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more expensive dental procedure.

How It Works:
Bonding involves 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 modify the positioning of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface of the tooth is roughed up 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 used so the material sticks to the surface area. Then the material itself is put on the tooth and hardened with intense light. The composite resin material is formed and polished to get a glossy finish as a last step.
