An Overview of Dental Crowns
You can tell the difference between a prosthetic and a natural tooth with most dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings in Denver with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new.” This is a highly reliable technique for repairing the most severe dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. We use these treatments for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How Long Does it Take to Fit a Dental Crown?
Fitting a dental crown in Denver requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
We will remove the temporary crown on the next visit and then fit and adjust the final crown. When the final crown is ready, you can come into the office again to try it out. If something doesn’t feel right about it, don’t worry. We can still tweak the crown design at this stage to ensure the most comfortable fit and a functional bite.
Once we’ve made all the final crown adjustments, we will cement the crown into place. You will have a new beautiful-looking tooth.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are sometimes more expensive than other options, such as dentures. However, it may be a case of you getting what you pay for as they last longer than dentures, and they function more like your natural teeth. Dental crowns include the following additional benefits:
- Replace missing teeth
- Offer support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Look completely natural
- Fix “smile” and functional chewing problems
What are the Capabilities of Crowns?
Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, we can use crowns or bridges as a long-term solution. Crowns and bridgework is also a reliable solution for major dental problems caused by diseases.
The material used in these repairs is durable and long-lasting. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious dental problems.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows full dental function for these teeth.
In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage. In front teeth, older fillings can weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.
