WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS



Updated On Thursday, December 13, 2018 06:39:44 PM

Same day crowns are a dental restoration innovation that permits a dental practitioner to produce an indirect ceramic dental restoration using computer-assisted technologies, consisting of 3-D photography and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing).

Same day crowns enables dentists the flexibility to restore teeth in a single sitting with a client, instead of the several visits needed with other techniques!

Same day crowns have been shown by numerous clinical research studies and is offered by countless dental practitioners to millions of patients around the world each year!

Same day crowns not only saves you time and money, it can also conserve your teeth!

Dental X-rays are unable to penetrate metal crowns, making any degeneration undetected up until it was too late.

Same day crowns use a strong porcelain that x-rays can penetrate. This means any decay below the restoration can be discovered and treated before it becomes a major problem.

Due to the fact that same day crown technology use a milling device to mill the ceramic into your customized restoration, the porcelain is stronger than those created by hand. And, the computer-assisted innovation can develop an nearly identical restoration of the previous tooth.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.

There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.

A Few Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:

  • Restore chewing and speaking capability.

  • Maintain facial shape.

  • Fill space of missing teeth.

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

  • Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

  • Restore your smile.


What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?

Getting a bridge typically requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks till your next visit.

At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfy bite.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.

Why Consider Dental Bridges?

This is an option for filling the space produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
