Crowns are synthetic caps, normally made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that large portions of the tooth has to be removed, crowns are frequently used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a broken tooth from worsening, connect 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 brought back to its natural appearance.

Treatments

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 to a special laboratory, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is used until the permanent crown is ready. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are sometimes confused with veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are generally applied just to relatively small areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

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

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) substantially 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.

Teeth Whitening

Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of a lot of clients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth lightening system that will bleach teeth considerably. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is necessary to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, and so on. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Most dentists utilize a number of methods: customizeded tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.

The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates into custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The entire procedure takes about a week of daily use. 3 different strengths of gel may be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the greater the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take multiple months of use to see considerable color improvement.

Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and practical lightening process. The appointment is approximately one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment since it is so simple and quick!

Tooth lightening is not permanent. A touch-up may be required once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For upkeep of whitened teeth the trays must be utilized every few months.

Reasons For Tooth Whitening:

  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

  • Normal wear of external tooth layer.

  • Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).

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