Dental Crowns… made your way
Types of Dental Crowns
Our dentists highly recommend the usage of metal crowns. This is because they are highly durable and relatively thin on the tooth structure. You can select from a variety of dental crowns such as gold alloys, nickel, chromium, and palladium.
Porcelain & Metal (PFM)
PFM or porcelain fused metal is a combination of dental crowns that are used to provide you with a virtually discreet look. The porcelain crown covers the surface area of the tooth, giving the crown a natural and tooth-like appearance, and metal is placed on the underside of the crown.
These crowns are a combination of resin and plastic, and they can be easily matched to fit the natural colours of your teeth. However, in comparison to other dental crowns, resin crowns can last only up to 3 years, due to weak material composition.
In cases of severely damaged, stained, or disfigured teeth, our orthodontists highly recommend the use of zirconia crowns or ceramic crowns. This is because, since zirconia crowns are composed of ceramic alone, they can provide dual function i.e., improve the appearance of your teeth, and have solid durability.
Stainless Steel Crowns
Stainless steel crowns are the most common type of dental crowns used by dentists. They are placed on the tooth as a mode of temporary preventive measures. These crowns help prevent the damaged tooth from affecting other areas of your teeth.
Dental Crowns Before and After
Procedure for Dental Crowns
The dentist will initially examine your teeth using either dental scanners or X-ray imaging. Along with analyzing the health of your teeth and gums, they will also assess the pulp and bone of your tooth.
Administering the Anaesthesia
Since this is a form of dental implant surgery, you may be provided with local anesthesia, to numb the area of the orthodontic treatment.
Obtaining Digital Impressions
Using digital impression systems, a 3D model of the dental crown is created. Also, the dentist will make sure that the crown matches the color and shape of your natural teeth.
Placement of the temporary crown
A temporary crown is placed over the damaged tooth for a few weeks until the permanent crown is made. (Here, you can select the materials you want to add to your custom crown like porcelain, ceramic, etc).
Placement & Polishing
Once the permanent dental crown has been prepared, the dentist positions it to fit perfectly over your tooth. Finally, the treatment is completed by polishing your teeth.
