Build Stronger Teeth

Everyone knows the basics of good dental care. Brush your teeth after every meal, floss every day, see your dentist at least twice a year. It sounds simple. But what if you still don’t have strong, healthy teeth? Weak enamel can be a genetic weakness, or it can be caused by other conditions, like Celiac disease. I’ve always had weak enamel, so I started looking into ways that I could increase the strength of my teeth, and found that dietary changes could make a big difference. I started this blog to share my experience, and to talk about other ways you can make your teeth stronger and healthier. There are lots of things that you can do to improve your dental health. You just have to find them.

Benefit From The Use Of Dental Crowns That Fit And Enhance Your Dental Needs

Are you wondering what dental crowns are and what can they do to benefit you? There's plenty that dental crowns can do to structurally restore your teeth and improve your smile in the final analysis. Crowns are synthetic caps that are generally made of porcelain material and placed on top of damaged teeth.

Restoring Advanced Decayed Tooth 

When you have an advanced decayed tooth, and your dentist anticipates that large portions of the tooth must be removed, this calls for using a crown to restore the tooth. There are a variety of other dental conditions that are best served with the placement of crowns on your teeth. Dental surgeons often use crowns to attach bridges and prevent a cracked tooth from further deterioration.

Crowns For Loose Filling And Stained Teeth

If you have an existing filling that shows signs of being dislocated or becoming loose, crowns can be fitted in order to correct this situation. You might have a stained tooth that needs to be restored to its original natural color. The use of crowns can do that for you. Even implants benefit from crown placements. Discuss the various procedures with your dental surgeon who will let you know what option is best for your dental needs.

Requirements For Having Dental Crowns Installed

Your damaged tooth must have been reduced in size to accommodate a crown fitting. A cast and impression of the tooth are made, and the impression is forwarded to a special lab, where a custom-designed crown is manufactured. Your dental surgeon may suggest that you wear a temporary crown while you await the return of your permanent crown. The permanent crown will be cemented into place at the surgical site on its return from the lab. Ask your dentist about how dental crowns can benefit your dental needs.

One-Day Crown Fitting

Note that some dental practices are equipped to perform crown fittings and all that the procedure entails in one day. They offer you sedation if you experience anxiety, which minimizes your discomfort and lessens your stress reaction. Digital and 3D images will be taken as a blueprint for your dental crown. No off-site laboratory work requires the return of the completed crown. All lab work is done onsite where CEREC, a milling device, is used to create your crown from a block of durable porcelain. Your crown design and restoration plus fitting are completed within an hour.
