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

Crowns are usually 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 large parts of the tooth must be taken out, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a cracked tooth from becoming worse, 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 applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth should typically be reduced 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 unique lab, which makes a custom-made crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is applied till the long-term crown is ready. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are rather different. Veneers are typically applied only to relatively small areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last up to 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.

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or even break the crown.




Same Day Crown Restorations

CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital images of areas requiring restoration and produce the proper restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to make your crown.

CEREC can be used for a broad scope of indications: anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, partial crowns and posterior crowns.

Today Were Talking About:

Fillings

Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling due to the fact that new material fills the hole that the decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth discomfort and/or infection, and the tooth would require a root canal treatment or extraction.

There are two types of fillings; amalgam or silver fillings, and composite or white fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth. Most dentists supply both types of fillings, but find that a lot of their patients prefer the composite fillings.

The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.

Composite fillings supply excellent sturdiness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that have to endure moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is eliminated when the dental practitioner prepares the tooth, and this may lead to a smaller sized filling than with of an amalgam.

In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively attached, to the tooth, commonly allowing a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry during the whole filling procedure and they go through stain and staining with time. The life span of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.

Composite filling material is also commonly used to fix front teeth that have chipped or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is usually much less expensive than veneers or crowns. However, bonding normally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
