Crowns are synthetic caps, normally made from a product 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 treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has actually ended up being so advanced that big parts of the tooth needs to be removed, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a broken tooth from worsening, attach 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 needs to be brought back to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should typically 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 to a unique laboratory, which makes a custom-made crown. Sometimes, a temporary crown is used up until the long-term crown is ready. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are generally applied only to fairly small areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last approximately 8 years or longer. It is essential to floss in the location of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

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

Tooth Whitening

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of a lot of patients, there are a number of methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth significantly. Since tooth lightening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, and so on. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Most dentists utilize numerous methods: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.

The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates into custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The entire procedure takes about a week of daily use. 3 various strengths of gel may be used, however, the greater the strength, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for terribly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take numerous months of use to see significant color improvement.

Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and hassle-free lightening procedure. The visit is approximately one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like this treatment due to the fact that it is so easy and quick!

Tooth lightening is not permanent. A touch-up may be required once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For upkeep of whitened teeth the trays should be utilized every few months.

Reasons For Tooth Whitening:

  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.

  • Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).

  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
