Classic Smiles Team
Classic Smiles is now offering dental crowns to patients. A dental crown is a form of dental restoration procedure designed to completely cover or encircle a tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore the health, strength, and the appearance of teeth. They are often appropriate in situations where a large cavity may threaten the ongoing health of a single tooth or the rest of your teeth. A dental crown may also be referred to as a dental cap. Once it is placed on the teeth, only a professional dentist will be able to remove it.
Prosthetics For Teeth
Crowns are simply prosthetics for teeth. Severely decayed or damaged teeth may pose several challenges. For instance, they will generally affect how your overall smile looks. Decayed teeth may also limit tooth function. A crown solves this. It simply restores the tooth ensuring it can realign itself with the rest of the teeth and resume normal function as before. There are four major types of crowns these days. Ceramic based crowns are, however, some of the more popular ones. Ceramic based crowns are mostly used to restore front teeth. They are easily able to blend with your natural teeth color too.
We also have porcelain fused with metal. These types of crowns tend to provide a much stronger bond than regular porcelain crowns due to the metal structure connected to them. You may also explore gold alloys. These are not that common but are far stronger. The gold crowns also do not fracture or wear away. Finally, base metal alloy crowns may also be used. There are also not that popular but are significantly stronger too. Teeth crowns can be temporary or permanent. Temporary crowns can be placed on teeth as the permanent crown is. They can also be used to strengthen teeth after a dental procedure that weakens them, including a root canal. Permanent crowns, on the other hand, will last for many years.
Why People Get Crowns
Crowns can be used for several reasons. However, they are normally used to restore crooked teeth. For example, a severely discolored or decayed tooth can be covered by a crown to give it a new more beautiful look. Crowns can also be used to cover stained teeth in cases where whitening is not an option or not preferred by the patient. Crowns can restore the total function of teeth. Loss of teeth function can be caused by many things, including aging, poor dental hygiene, and injury. If your teeth have grown too weak, they may not be able to perform their roles as effectively as required. A crown may be used to cover that tooth restoring its normal function in the process.
