Over time, our teeth can become damaged and brittle due to acidic erosion, dental decay, and microscopic fractures. To repair decay and missing patches of enamel, Naperville cosmetic dentist, Dr. Weyneth,uses tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, and even root canal therapy to protect the dental root. However, a tooth can only be repaired so many times, which is why dental crowns are used to be an optimal solution.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that sit over the top of your existing teeth and are then cemented in place. Once fixed in place with cement, the dental crown will cover all visible areas of your original tooth, which provides a natural look.
Dental crowns are a popular way to achieve a beautiful smile. The crown of your tooth is its most visible part. The crown is exposed to considerable strain and susceptible to wear and tear. Biting down and chewing on food puts stress on the crown of your teeth. The crown of your teeth can also become damaged by grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw.
Everyday wear and tear of the dental crown is usually unavoidable. Over time, your teeth are exposed to a number of factors that can cause them to become weak, such as, the acid which is present in food and drink. Decay, acid erosion, and damage such as fractures, can all weaken your teeth, and impact on their appearance.
Issues with your teeth can be repaired in a number of ways, such as through decay removal, and fillings. Although these treatments are a useful way to deal with these issues in the short term, in the long term, it is not always practical to repair teeth over and over again. Continuous repairs to your teeth, such as decay removal and fillings, means that the original structure of the tooth is weakened, and less of it remains. This is one of the reasons that dental crowns are often recommended to patients by Dr. Weyneth.
Dental crowns offer many benefits, which is one of the reasons that they are so popular. Here are some of the benefits that dental crowns can provide.
If you are concerned that your teeth are damaged and have chips, cracks, or fractures, you may decide to opt for dental crowns to protect your damaged teeth. As a dental crown covers your entire tooth, it can be a useful way to hold cracked teeth in the correct position and to prevent the damage from worsening.
If you have a broken tooth, you may find that it is uncomfortable and you may dislike the feel of its rough surface. A dental crown is a useful way of protecting a broken tooth while preventing it from becoming damaged further. When a dental crown is fitted over a broken or worn down tooth, it should feel more comfortable, as the crown will provide a smoother surface.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you may choose to have dental crowns fitted. Dental crowns can provide cosmetic improvements to teeth, as well as practical benefits. Opting for dental crowns can help you to achieve an even smile. As the dental crowns fit over your existing teeth, they can offer a natural appearance, while improving the look of your smile.
You will find that there are a large number of dental crown options to choose from, including metal, resin, and all-porcelain.
As dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, before you go ahead and get crowns fitted, it is useful to be aware of each of the options that are available.
A variety of metal dental crown options are available. Metal dental crowns can be constructed from stainless steel, gold, along with metal alloys, such as nickel-chromium. While metal dental crowns can be durable and resistant to damage, the metallic color can be off-putting if you are looking for a more natural look.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal is another material often used for dental crowns. The use of porcelain offers a more natural look, which is likely to be a closer match to your natural tooth color, than the other metal options. However, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can sometimes chip, which can make the metal underneath appear more prominent.
All-porcelain dental crowns are a popular choice with patients. All-porcelain dental crowns offer a more natural color and will resemble your natural teeth more closely than the other options available. If you have your all-porcelain dental crowns fitted here at Sherman Oaks Dental in Naperville, Dr. Weyneth will work to color-match your dental crowns as closely as possible to your natural tooth color. Color-matching will help your new crowns blend naturally with your smile.
While all dental crown materials will work on a functional basis, all-porcelain can offer the most aesthetically-pleasing option. As all-porcelain is such a strong material, Dr. Weyneth can construct a thinner crown, which will help achieve a more natural smile, and will lessen the amount of work needed to be carried out on your natural teeth.
Previously, receiving a dental crown meant multiple visits to our dental practice and having to wear a temporary crown for weeks until your permanent crown was ready. But today with 3D imaging technology and the invention of CEREC this is no longer the case.
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) is a sophisticated piece of technology used here at Sherman Oaks Dental. In the past, getting dental crowns was a time-consuming process, but with CEREC Technology, this is no longer the case. Using advanced CEREC technology, Dr. Weyneth will take 3d images of your tooth and create a beautiful, permanent crown for you while you wait.
