CROWN IN A DAY



Updated On Wednesday, November 21, 2018 05:19:09 AM

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

Crowns are generally used to bring back a tooth's function and look following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has actually ended up being so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be taken out, crowns are frequently used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a split tooth from worsening, 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 applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Treatments

A tooth must typically be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special lab, which makes a custom-made crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is used till the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often mistaken as veneers, but they are quite different. Veneers are generally applied only to fairly small locations.

Caring For Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown could last approximately 8 years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) substantially reduce the life of a crown. Moreover, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps break the crown.

Teeth Whitening

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many patients, there are multiple ways to bleach teeth. The most popular technique is utilizing a home tooth whitening system that will lighten teeth dramatically. Because tooth lightening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is very important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Most dentists utilize multiple approaches: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.

The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab produces into custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is put in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The whole procedure takes about a week of everyday use. Three various strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the higher the strength, the higher the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is advised for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take a number of months of use to see substantial color improvement.

Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and practical whitening process. The visit is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients love this treatment since it is so easy and quick!

Tooth lightening is not permanent. A touch-up might be needed once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays must be used every couple of months.

Reasons For Tooth Whitening:

  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.

  • Florousis (excessive fluoridation throughout tooth development).

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