Many people think that when they see their teeth begin to loosen or become discolored, their only option is to receive dentures. However, under the care of the Tory Hill Dental team, you may have more appealing alternatives.
Crowns, for example, are seen as a more permanent solution than dentures. Not only do crowns last longer than many other tooth-replacement options but they also do not need to be removed at night, they require less maintenance, look more natural and fit more comfortably. Also, with advances in medical science, your crown(s) can be finished within one day!
It is no wonder why crowns and dental bridges are some of the most in-demand dental procedures for our patients!
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a custom-fitted sleeve for a damaged or weakened tooth. Made from a variety of substances (porcelain, gold, etc.), this “sleeve” fits over the troubled area, reinforcing the tooth and completing your smile.
What is involved in receiving a Dental Crown?
At Tory Hill Dental, receiving a crown is quick and gentle. Often completed over the course of one visit, Dr. Miedema will begin by shaping your tooth so it is suitable to receive a crown. Once the original tooth is sufficiently prepared, that tooth, the adjacent teeth, and opposing teeth will be digitally scanned and a three-dimensional model will be created in a computer upon which your new crown will be designed and created. The crown will then be precisely milled out of a solid block of porcelain and then securely bonded to the prepared tooth in your mouth.
When should I get a Dental Crown?
It can be risky to “put off” medical treatment of any kind, and it is no different in dentistry. In the case of loose, discolored, or missing teeth, there are several more serious issues that could start from neglecting your oral care or ignoring obvious dental concerns. Poor oral health is a known signal of the possible development of conditions such as:
- Increased Stroke or Heart Attack risk factors
- Painful inflammation throughout the entire body
- Liver and Kidney Disorders
- Even Cancer!
That is why it is important to confront any medical issue as soon as the problem appears.
