A Dental Crown is a rigid cap, which restores a tooth to its ideal anatomic contours and function, whilst at the same time, protecting the underlying tooth
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
To hold a dental bridge in place
To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
To cover a dental implant
We offer two basic types of Materials for dental crowns
Porcelian Fused to Metal ( PFM ) dental crowns.
Zirconia Metal Free dental crowns.
The predominant material of choice for All-Ceramic Full Porcelain Crown & Bridges today is either Zirconia or Alluminous materials. These provide a Metal Free esthetic option with a number of benefits…………
By eliminating the need for the supportive metal core, an esthetic all-ceramic crown can be created with reduced thickness of material. This makes them more favorable treatment of choice where there is less of space. Additionally, the elimination of the metal core allows for light transition through the porcelain for better optical effects, life like propertied and a higher level of esthetics.
All ceramic materials continue to evolve in strength and durability, but caution should still be taken for areas of the mouth requiring heavy function.
Before putting the crown to its position, there are a lot of other steps that needs to be done to ensure that the crown sits perfectly in position. Firstly, you will be administered with a local anesthetic. To ensure that the crown fits perfectly and finds room for itself, the dentist files the original tooth that is being restored. Then to get a custom made fit, an impression is taken of the tooth to be restored and the surrounding teeth from which a temporary crown is made. Then using restorative material and with the help of the impression, the crown is made. The main aim of the temporary crown is to protect the damaged tooth until you get the permanent crown. Because of this temporary crown, the final crown will fit you exactly and will appear as a tailor-made fit only for you. However, the temporary and final crown are not alike in color and the final crown is way better than the former one. When you will visit the dentist for the next time, your temporary crown will be taken off and you will be given the permanent crown. After checking whether the crown is in place or not, the dentist will cement it into place.
How many year does Dental Crown Last ?
The life span of the dental crown is highly dependent on other factors that are not directly related to the crown itself. It can be expected that a crown should provide service for somewhere between five and fifteen years (general statistics). You must avoid using your teeth to open packaging, chewing ice, clenching or grinding teeth, and biting fingernails
