When you have a tooth that is chipped or cracked, or one suffering from a cavity or infection, then you likely need a restoration to avoid further discomfort or losing the tooth altogether. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist will look at how we treat smiles and restore teeth with lifelike and durable porcelain dental crowns.
The Reasons to Receive One
A crown addresses the visible portion of your tooth, everything above the gum line. We may use them to repair minor and more substantial chips and cracks, and to lengthen teeth worn-down as a result of teeth grinding. We also repair advanced cases of tooth decay, and complete a root canal to treat infected teeth. Placement also corrects misshapen teeth and even masks permanent teeth stains. If you have lost one or more teeth, we may assist with tooth replacement using restorations to secure a dental bridge or restore a single tooth dental implant. They offer a number of cosmetic and restorative repair options for people of all ages, returning smiles to optimal health, function, and beauty.
Creating Your Crown
Each one will be created specifically for your smile. We start by removing a small amount of structure from the tooth and then we take detailed impressions and measurements. We use the information to design and fabricate the crown. The porcelain we use absorbs daily bite forces and can be shaded to blend with your smile. The material is also translucent like tooth enamel, too! We want you to be able to continue enjoying your favorite foods. They also allow you to We want to make sure you not only enjoy durable restoration, but a lifelike appearance as well.
Placement and Maintenance
When the restoration is complete, you return to the office so we can place the completed crown with a powerful bonding agent. Afterward, routine care is necessary to keep it bright and protect the tooth from further issues. You should brush your teeth twice daily and floss every night before bed. We also recommend seeing us for checkups and cleanings every six months, so we can monitor your smile and remove plaque buildup that threatens your smile. With these steps, you safeguard your teeth against decay or infection, and limit the impact of gum disease or damage.
