Dental crowns are valuable restorations used to strengthen or augment decayed or damaged teeth, like those that are chipped, cracked, or fractured. They’re also ideal for improving the appearance of an aesthetically displeasing tooth, such as when one is discolored, misshapen, or crooked. And they even serve essential roles as components of dental bridges and implants. Here at Riverdale Dental Associates, you can depend on dental crowns for all your needs.
The materials used to make a crown are either porcelain, porcelain baked to metal, or ceramic. The type that is appropriate for your situation will be based largely on the location of the tooth, as well as your preferences. Porcelain or ceramic are perfect for any tooth that shows when you smile, speak, or laugh. They blend in seamlessly with the color of your teeth, so it doesn’t even look like you have a crown at all. Porcelain baked to metal is typically suitable for back teeth, which take the majority of the force when you chew food. Metal provides additional strength to rely on. Our Verandah best dentist will have a complete crown placed in just two visits. The first session is when you come in to have impressions of the tooth taken, which are then given to the dental lab. They make the crown and return it to our office. You’ll then return to have our Verandah best dentist fit the crown and cement it to the tooth for long term use. Exactly how much time you can expect to get from your crown depends on several factors, but what is indisputable is the way they keep your tooth fully functional and looking good.
