Facts About Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a prosthetic cap that is placed on top of a tooth to restore its function. They protect the functions, look, and overall health of your teeth. A dental crowns treatment is useful in repairing and saving teeth that have been chipped, decayed, or discoloured. Depending on periodontal diseases and the severity of tooth destruction, a dentist can recommend you crown from the many types available nowadays. Metal, ceramic, composite resin, and porcelain crowns infused with metals are the types available.

In this article, we discuss some facts about them that you may be surprised to know about:

  • One of the benefits of tooth crowns is that they are designed to resemble natural teeth in appearance and function. Crowns, however, do not discolour like real teeth. This is why crowns on front teeth are also an option. While this may be a relief for some who want to eat and drink without worrying about stains, there is one little drawback. If you are thinking about getting your teeth professionally bleached when you already have dental crowns, keep in mind that crowns will not be affected. Even if you whiten your teeth, the color of the crowns will not alter but your natural teeth will look different after the treatment. Therefore, it is better to get a whitening treatment before receiving this treatment
  • By establishing a protective barrier on the tooth, the treatment can help to reverse tooth deterioration. Crowns are used by dentists to strengthen a tooth or prevent loose fillings from dislodging in patients who have dental decay. If a patient has a chipped or rotted tooth, he may experience serious dental difficulties; therefore, a dental cap can prevent the tooth from further cracking and keep it functioning for a long time
  • Your crown is customised to match the natural shape of your existing tooth or fit in nicely with the rest of the teeth so the bite and appeal of your teeth are not disturbed. The dentist takes an impression of your teeth and then the crown is manufactured in a dental lab. This is why it can take multiple visits before the crown is placed. Modern dental technologies, however, have allowed reducing this time
  • Considering the many benefits of tooth crowns, they can survive for several years. However, you cannot make them last forever, even if they can remain functional for a decade. You must adhere to proper dental care to preserve a crown’s strength and longevity. Because of poor oral health and/or physical trauma, a crown might be damaged. You may also consider getting a mouth guard if you play sports. Even with proper dental hygiene and care, there will come a point when you will have to replace it
