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

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large parts of the tooth needs to be eliminated, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a cracked 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 applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Treatments

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 special lab, which makes a custom-designed crown. Sometimes, a short-term crown is applied up until the permanent crown is ready. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are in some cases confused with veneers, but they are rather different. Veneers are typically applied only to fairly little areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown could last as much as 8 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) considerably reduce the life of a crown. Furthermore, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, and even harm the crown.

Today's Topic Is:

Fillings

Fillings are done to eliminate decay, and replace the afflicted tooth structure. It is called a filling because brand-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 pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need 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 offer both kinds of fillings, however find that a number of their patients prefer the composite fillings.

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

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

In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively connected, to the tooth, typically 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 undergo stain and discoloration in time. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend significantly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.

Composite filling material is also typically used to fix front teeth that have broken or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is usually much more economical than veneers or crowns. However, bonding typically does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
