What are Crowns and Bridges used for?
There’s nothing like a broken or noticeably-decayed tooth to turn an otherwise perfect smile into a source of awkwardness or embarrassment. Whether it’s the result of an accident or eventual decay, a chipped or damaged tooth can not only mar your appearance, but cause actual health problems down the road. Fortunately, a solution to this problem does exist in the form of dental crowns. Dental crowns are tooth coverings that work to essentially take the place of the tooth’s outer surface. Widely regarded by dentists as one of the most solid solutions for dental problems caused by injury, disease, or general wear and tear, crowns are typically made of porcelain or porcelain pasted on gold.
Trendy clothes, stylish shoes and the latest celebrity-inspired haircut all make powerful statements when it comes to taking pride in your appearance. So does showcasing a pearly white smile. Cosmetic Crowns used by Dr. Nadji can spruce up a not-so-healthy tooth and restore your confidence.
Same Day Crowns
Dr. Nadii performs complete dental restorations, and is a leader in handling large or complex cases. Using E-4D technology, Dr. Nadji can create permanent crowns for many different types of teeth in only one visit, requiring no temporaries.
Two Visit Crowns
For some patient's teeth, the process of fitting a crown entails two office visits. During the first appointment, your dentist will clean the affected tooth in order to remove decay. She will then reshape the tooth, which might include filing it down or building it up, depending on the circumstances. An impression will be made in order to create your permanent crown, and you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown while your gums heal. During your follow-up appointment, your dentist will remove your temporary crown and replace it with the permanent one after checking it to ensure that it fits properly.
Crowns provide support for damaged teeth
From a functional standpoint, dental crowns are highly effective in strengthening and supporting misshapen or badly broken teeth. Dental crowns can truly work to preserve the functionality of the teeth so that you don’t encounter any problems with your bite or chewing down the road.
Crowns prevent infection
Extreme tooth decay can not only pose a problem for the effected tooth, but for the rest of your mouth if not properly treated. Dental crowns that are placed over highly-decayed teeth can work to prevent infection that might otherwise result from bacteria seeping into cracked or damaged teeth.
Crowns are a long-term solution
Dental crowns are considered by dentists to be one of the most effective treatments for patients on a long-term basis. Most dental crowns are able to last long time with proper oral hygiene.
Crowns look completely natural
Thanks to the materials involved in their fabrication, dental crowns offer a natural look that mimic regular, healthy teeth. In other words, nobody will be able to tell the difference between your crowns and your original teeth.
Crowns result in more confident smiles
Although crowns are often recommended simply for their ability to effectively strengthen damaged teeth and prevent further decay, there is certainly a cosmetic value to dental crowns as well. By covering up broken or chipped teeth, dental crowns can restore not only your smile, but your self confidence as well.
Top Oral Care Tips for BRIDGES & CROWNS
While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown is to practice good oral hygiene.
Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily.
See your dentist or hygienist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.
To prevent damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid chewing hard foods, ice or other hard objects.
Keep your gums healthy. Gums are important for the success of bridges and crowns.
