Dental Crown Uses
Dental crowns are caps that are placed over individual teeth in order to mask structural imperfections or reinforce a damaged tooth. Dental crowns differ from veneers, inlays, and onlays because they encase the entire tooth, rather than just a portion of it. At our dentistry practice, we use crowns to address:
Large Fillings or Cavities
Patients at our practice with particularly large fillings may have crowns placed over their teeth to support the filling and tooth. This can restore chewing ability and overall dental function.
Chips, Cracks, and Wear
In addition, patients whose teeth have been cracked, chipped, or severely worn down can opt for dental crowns to restore strength and shape to the tooth.
Root Canal Infection
The nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissues in the central canals of the tooth can become infected due to cavities or injury. Crowns are commonly placed after root canal therapy to lend strength and support to the tooth.
Securing Dental Bridges
Crowns can also be used to hold a traditional dental bridge in place. A bridge can replace one to three teeth in a row, and they are secured in place with two crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.
Replace a Missing Tooth
Dental implants can be placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. With crowns, a single implant is placed in the jaw. After the dental implant has integrated with the surrounding tissues, a crown can be attached to the implant.
Dental Crown Materials
Dental crowns can be made of metal, porcelain, or a combination of the two. Dr. Malki will help patients decide which material is best suited to their specific needs.
How Are Dental Crowns Placed?
Our dentist employs the advanced technology of CEREC so he can fit, craft, and place crowns in one office visit, as opposed to two separate appointments.
Gold and Metal Crowns
If a patient is receiving a gold or metal crown, Dr. Malki can complete the procedure in two easy office visits. The procedure is relatively similar, except that the dental crowns are milled by an outside lab. In this case, Dr. Malki provides patients with a temporary crown while the custom crown is being created.
Why Choose Dental Crowns?
Oral Health Benefits
The main benefit of dental crowns is that they restore the strength, health, and chewing ability of damaged teeth. Patients whose teeth have been weakened may experience pain, discomfort, and sensitivity, which can be addressed with this treatment. In addition, broken teeth can have an adverse effect on alignment of the jaw, which can lead to bone deterioration or TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder.
Porcelain crowns also offer many cosmetic benefits. Porcelain crowns mimic the color of natural teeth and can be used to create a seamless look. This is especially useful for treatment of the front teeth. These crowns can also be used on the back teeth and are less conspicuous than their metal counterparts. In most cases, dentists recommend porcelain crowns because they resemble the natural teeth.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
When maintained with routine dental care, crowns can last up to 15 years. Be sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist at least twice a year.
