As part of the procedures our specialists perform every day, one of the most needed by our patients are dental crowns.
Here is a straight forward guide to dental crown Medellin.
What are dental crowns ?
A dental bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
One type of dental bridge consists of dental crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them.
Another type of dental bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages.
Dental bridges can also be supported by dental implants.
Dental crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics.
Some metal-free dental crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.
When is a dental crown required?
Dental crowns and dental bridges are part of a area of specialization within dentistry called oral rehabilitation. Dental crowns are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by trauma, dental decay, abrasion, oral diseases and others.
Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques.
Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold.
A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems.
Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Dental crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function.
Dental Crown Medellin
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to cracks in the chewing part of the tooth.
Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both 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. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
Is A Dental Crown Right For Me?
A dental crown has many advantages.
Dental crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth.
In cases where teeth have large broken down fillings, a dental crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth.
To enhance your smile, metal-free, tooth colored, porcelain crowns can also replace older metal or metal with dental porcelain crowns.
Porcelain crowns have translucent qualities that, with the help of an expert cosmetic dentist professionals like Dr. Aguirre, Dr. Claudia Campuzano or one of the dentists part of the team of specialists at LIV Dental Specialists Medellín, can look just like natural teeth.
Following root canal therapy, a dental crown is typically placed over the remaining tooth structure to preserve aesthetics and tooth function.
Dental crowns can also be placed on dental implants when the tooth has been extracted, replacing it completely, and looking very close the the natural one.
How long does it take to make a dental crown?
Dental Crown Medellin The complete dental porcelain crown procedure requires at least three visits to our office. In the first appointment we remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown.
Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Key Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or teeth suffering from fractures
- Looks completely natural
- Correct aesthetic and functional chewing problems
In some cases when a tooth is just slightly damaged, has suffered pigmentation or requires an aesthetic improvement, the solution might be a dental veneer instead of a dental crown.
In cases where a dental crown on an implant can’t be the elected choice, a dental bridge can also provide a solution to replace the missing teeth.
