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 look following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that big portions of the tooth has to be eliminated, crowns are typically 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 in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be brought back to its natural appearance.

Procedures

A tooth must 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 special lab, which makes a custom-made crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is applied up until the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases mistaken as veneers, but they are rather different. Veneers are usually applied only to fairly small locations.

Taking care of Your Crowns

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

Specific behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or 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 harden, and polish it. It can be used in certain scenarios where a tooth has been broken or become stained. These are normally minor repairs, ones that can be resolved through this reasonably inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.

Here Is 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 fix damage done to the tooth by decay, to change the alignment of the tooth, close spaces in between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface 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 area. Then the material itself is positioned on the tooth and hardened with intense light. The composite resin material is shaped and polished to obtain a lustrous finish as a last step.
