Crowns are artificial caps, typically made of 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 treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has actually become so advanced that big portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are frequently used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a split tooth from becoming worse, 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 used when a discolored or stained tooth needs 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 laboratory, which produces a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is applied up until the permanent crown is ready. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are in some cases mistaken as veneers, but they are fairly different. Veneers are usually applied just to relatively little areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown could last as much as eight years or longer. It is essential to floss in the location of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Furthermore, consuming hard foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, and even harm the crown.

Dental Bonding (Composite)

Bonding is a procedure in which we apply a tooth-colored composite product to a tooth, shape it, allow it to solidify, and polish it. It can be utilized in certain circumstances where a tooth has actually been broken or become stained. These are usually minor repairs, ones that can be resolved through this fairly inexpensive means instead of through a more expensive dental treatment.

How It Works:
Bonding includes adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth, to the front of the tooth. This is done to repair damage done to the tooth by decay, to change the alignment of the tooth, close gaps in between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface area of the tooth is roughened 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 applied so the material adheres to the surface. Then the material itself is put on the tooth and solidified with intense light. The composite resin material is formed and polished to get a glossy finish as a last step.
