When a tooth becomes damaged, repair is crucial for avoiding complications. In order to address minor and severe damage, we may opt for a strong and durable restoration. We also take steps to ensure our Olathe, KS, patients enjoy natural looking tooth repair. In today’s blog, let’s take a closer look at our lifelike dental crowns and when we prescribe them.
When Do You Need a Crown?
A dental crown covers the visible portion of your tooth, which enables our team to repair a number of cosmetic and restorative issues. We may suggest one to treat advanced cases of tooth decay, or as part of a root canal treatment for infected teeth. Placement often lengthens worn down teeth, repairs cracks or chips, and reshapes malformed teeth. We’ve placed them to help secure a dental bridge or restore a single tooth dental implant, aiding in the replacement of missing teeth. If you have problems that require more than a filling or dental bonding, then we may prescribe a dental crown.
Creating One to Blend with Your Smile
We use a number of different materials to create them. Porcelain looks like natural tooth enamel and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. For added strength and durability, we may also suggest a porcelain-fused-to-metal option, which remains lifelike and makes a perfect choice for the side and rear teeth. We also employ zirconia, a very strong material designed to mimic the look of a natural tooth. We create them by taking detailed impressions of your repaired teeth. We then work to ensure the restoration offers a durable restoration and a lifelike appearance. Each one will be custom-made for your particular smile.
First, they offer a natural looking solution to a number of serious oral health concerns. In addition, with routine care, they could last decades. You should brush and floss them as you would your natural teeth, as this protects them and your smile as a whole from tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and gum disease. They can also withstand powerful bite forces and pressure, offering a restoration that returns your ability to eat your favorite foods without discomfort. If you have any questions about our dental crowns, or if you have an aching or damaged tooth in need of repair, then please contact our team today. We will help restore your tooth to optimal health, function, and beauty using these lifelike and strong dental restorations.
