Ceramic Crowns Will Bring Your Smile’s Sparkle Back
Our Porcelain Dental Crowns Look Like Natural Teeth
Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration that is used to cover a tooth and provide support and protection. A crown is the perfect solution for someone who has broken a tooth, one that has been damaged or badly decayed. A ceramic dental crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth. The crown helps secure the tooth, making it strong and durable, and gives it the shape and appearance of a natural tooth. Dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, and some crowns are used to attach bridges or dentures. Dental crowns can be made from different materials, including ceramic, metal, and porcelain. Your dentist will be able to provide you with advice on the best type of crown for your situation.
What Are Dental Crowns Used For?
Sometimes referred to as a ‘dental cap’, a crown can be the ideal restoration for when a traditional filling won’t be enough. Crowns can be made from porcelain, gold, or a combination of these materials. Due to the advances in modern dentistry, ceramic crowns are one of the most popular and reliable dental treatments around. With an average lifetime between 10 and 15 years, crowns can also offer a natural looking solution to a wealth of dental problems.
Caring for your dental crowns is similar to how you would care for your natural teeth. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding hard and sticky foods. Regular check-ups and cleanings are also important to ensure that your dental crowns are still in good condition.
Ceramic crowns can have a dramatic impact on a client’s life. Not only will it boost their confidence, it will also encourage them to smile and make them look and feel more attractive. So, if you are looking for a ceramic crown in Stoke-on-Trent book a visit with us today.
When Is A Dental Crown The Best Option?
A dental crown could be used for a number of different reasons. You may have fillings that have discoloured over the years, and you would like to improve their appearance. Or a root filling and require a crown to protect it. A crown can also be the best option when trying to reshape an unsightly tooth, blending it in with the neighbouring teeth. It may also hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
The crown-fitting process is usually carried out over several appointments. Firstly, we’ll prepare the tooth to accommodate the crown. Then, we’ll take some impressions of your teeth and make a record of their colour to ensure your new crown is a perfect match. Between appointments, your tooth will be protected with a temporary crown while your new one is being created.
Of course their life expectancy depends on a number of factors (location in the mouth, general health of your teeth, etc) but they can give you much more of a natural look. For more details call 01782 848708 today or if you’re ready to book an appointment today click below.
