A Guide To Dental Crowns

By |May 28th, 2014|Dentistry|0 Comments

Essentially “caps” for your teeth, dental crowns are one of the most common solutions to a range of dental issues including missing, damaged or weak teeth and unsightly teeth.  Modern dentistry makes the process of getting a dental crown simple, painless and relatively quick.  

What Are Dental Crowns?
As its name suggests, a crown is covering for teeth, and can act as either as a replacement tooth or a way to protect an existing tooth that is broken, weak or otherwise damaged.  Crowns these days can be made from a range of materials, including ceramic and porcelain, metals such as gold or nickel alloys or stainless steel (although this is generally only used as a temporary crown).  Deciding on the type of material for a crown you may require will depend upon the way the crown will be used as well as its location within the mouth:  solid porcelain crowns, for example, look most like real teeth, however they can be less robust than porcelain-fused crowns and as such are more suitable for front teeth replacements.  

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?
You may need a crown if you:

Have damaged, broken or worn down a tooth
Have a missing tooth or teeth
Have a weak tooth that needs to be protected
Have discoloured or misshapen teeth
Need a dental implant or a dental bridge

In some cases dental crowns can also be recommended for the baby teeth of young children with signs of severe tooth decay.

What Is Involved In Getting A Dental Crown?
If you are getting a crown, any work required on your tooth (or teeth) will be carried out first.  If the tooth is broken or worn down, the dentist will try to salvage as much of the tooth as possible.  […]

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?

Lost a tooth recently or need surgery and looking at dental implants?  While a more expensive option than removable dentures or an individual crown, dental implants are considered to be the closest thing you can get today to replicating your natural teeth.  This means that not only will a dental implant feel more natural to you, it will be stronger and last for a longer period of time.
Dentures vs. Implants
In the past replacing damaged or missing teeth was a matter of fixing dentures and bridges that attached to the adjacent teeth.  While fine in the short term, dentures can cause damage to the teeth over time or can become loose in the case of bone loss in the jaw.  Dentures can also be difficult to look after, requiring special care and frequent visits to the dentist.  Dental implants, on the other hand, provide a more permanent solution:  made out of biocompatible titanium, a dental implant becomes a solid foundation on which replacement teeth can sit.  Because titanium is accepted by the body, the existing bone into which the titanium is placed will actually “bond” with the implant, creating an unusually strong and stable tooth.  Once the surgery is completed your new teeth will feel and act just like your old teeth – you’ll be able to eat normal foods, and brush and floss your teeth as you did before the implants.
Process For Getting Dental Implants
The process for getting dental implants is designed to be as quick and pain-free as possible.  The first step is to attend an initial consultation at which your dentist or dental implant specialist will discuss a treatment plan with you.  The next steps will involve a number of appointments at […]
