Types of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are an excellent way to restore your missing or damaged tooth, protect the existing tooth, and maintain dental health. At Cleary Dental, we strive to provide our clients with the best dental services. Our dentists work closely with our patients to agree on the most suitable dental crown to install. The state-of-the-art technology helps ensure the right dental examination is performed and the treatment procedure is fast and successful with a quick recovery period. There are many types of dental crowns to choose from.
Dental crowns act as a covering for the damaged or decayed natural tooth. Some refer to them as caps since they have a cap around the tooth exterior. Most dental crowns are made from either porcelain, ceramic, or metallic materials. Professionals in a licensed clinic must install dental crowns to ensure the entire procedure is successful. Dental crowns help restore the damaged tooth, strengthen the weak tooth, and reshape the out-of-shape tooth.
Placing Dental Crowns
The process of placing dental crowns starts with our dentists taking a scan to figure out the size and shape of the teeth on the first visit. A digital replica is then created, and with the help of our modern and advanced technology, a crown will be crafted, resembling the digital replica both in design and size. Fitting the crown is the last procedure, with the entire procedure lasting a few hours. Our dentist will administer local anesthesia to help prevent any discomfort or pain during the dental crown placement procedure.
Benefits of Ceramic Crowns
Ceramic crowns are translucent and match the appearance of your teeth, blending well with the rest of the teeth. Ceramic crowns fit well in tight spaces and are not conspicuous like metal crowns. They are made from a biocompatible material, making them perfect for use in the jaw since there are no side effects.
You will not have to worry about allergic reactions as you would when using metal crowns. They are resistant to corrosion, durable, and strong, hence capable of protecting your tooth for several years.
Same Day Crowns
We have a well-trained team of dentists, who install dental crowns in just one appointment. We use state-of-the-art technology to quickly scan your mouth, make a digital copy of the tooth, and craft a crown resembling the tooth in size, color, and shape. Our same-day crowns offer a convenient and comfortable alternative to outdated porcelain crowns for decayed, chipped, or damaged teeth. In addition to our same day crowns being fitted within a few hours, they also help mold the tooth’s shape to ensure maximum aesthetic and comfort performance.
