Dental Crowns Services London Ontario – Dental crowns are like a cap that entirely covers the visible part of a tooth, right down to the gum line. A dental crown is cemented on to existing teeth or a dental implant.
This makes it a great tool for cosmetic dentistry. A dental crown makes your teeth look nicer and it also makes them stronger.
• If you have a cavity that is too large to fill, a dental crown may be your solution.
• A cracked tooth can be strengthened with a dental crown.
• If your tooth has decayed or broken to the point where it is not strong enough to last on its own, a dental crown will give you a strong tooth you can rely on.
• If you have several cracked or partially broken teeth, a dental crown will give them strength so they don’t break down further.
• Discolored teeth that can no longer be whitened can be covered up with a dental crown.
• Severely misshapen teeth can be covered up to look nice and straight with a dental crown.
• Dental crowns are used to hold a dental bridge in place.
• After you get a dental implant, a dental crown is needed so you have a “tooth” to cover the implant.
• Dental crowns are often used as a cosmetic modification to give you a more beautiful smile.
Dental crowns can be temporary or permanent, depending on the need, as determined by your dentist.
Stainless Steel Dental Crown – These are prefabricated dental crowns that are “slipped” on to existing teeth as a temporary measure until your custom designed using another material.
The intent is to cover the decayed or broken tooth immediately so it doesn’t break down any further.
Stainless steel dental crowns are often used for children so they don’t have to keep coming back to the dentist. The dental crown automatically comes out when the permanent tooth comes up.
Other metals like gold alloy, palladium nickel or chromium can also be used for dental crowns. Metal dental crowns are a good choice because they rarely chip or break. The main problem with metal crowns is the colour. Metal crowns are often used in the back of the teeth to cover molars.
The colour of porcelain fused to metal dental crowns can match your existing teeth. However, the teeth opposite to the crown will wear down quicker because the material used is stronger than the enamel protected natural teeth.
All resin dental crowns are much less expensive than other materials but they can crack or break much more easily. Resin is often used in temporary dental crowns.
All resin or all porcelain dental crowns are a good choice for front teeth because they can a more natural colour match with your other teeth.
Zirconia or milled crowns can be produced digitally right in the dentist’s office without the need of a temporary dental crown. Not all dentists have the hardware and software needed for this purpose.
Generally, dental crowns last between five and fifteen years.
• Don’t grind your teeth
• Avoid clenching your teeth
• Never chew on ice or other hard materials
• Stop biting your fingernails
• Never use your teeth to open packaging
