Porcelain Crown and Bridges

 

The best way to make a good first impression or to be approachable is to smile pleasantly. It instantly makes you more sociable, which is a great feature to have both for social and professional reasons. However, fractured, diseased, or decaying teeth can prevent you from smiling pleasantly or lead to extremely self-consciousness. Dental crowns are necessary to both strengthen your teeth and to restore their aesthetic value. At URBN Dental, we carefully examine your teeth and create the perfect dental crowns and bridges that look and feel just like all your other teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence!

How Do I Take Care of My Dental Crown?

You can take care of your dental crown by following these tips:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  • Floss after every meal or twice a day.
  • Be careful about what you’re eating. Avoid extremely sweet food as they attract bacteria.
  • Eating hard food like ice or hard candies can also potentially break them.

FAQs about Tooth Crown

Dentists offer a wide range of solutions on how to restore your smile. You can try treatments and procedures like dental veneers, oral surgery, teeth whitening, or a number of other cosmetic procedures. All of them are suitable for different reasons. However, dental crown treatment is one of the most popular and effective cosmetic dentistry treatments available. There are a number of different methods with which you can restore your smile and fix misshapen or broken teeth. Some of the most popular cosmetic treatments include dental veneers, teeth whitening, oral surgery, and many others. All of them serve different purposes. However, the best method to strengthen your teeth while also improving its aesthetics is to use dental crowns and bridges. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps for a misaligned, broken, or fractured tooth. It fits over your actual tooth in order to alter its appearance or simply to protect it from damage. They’re firmly cemented in place so they essentially cover up your existing teeth and replace them altogether. Dental crowns can also last a lifetime, whereas other options like veneers and fillings are short-lived. Dental bridges, in comparison, are attached to bridge the gap between two teeth. These are essentially a row of dental crowns inserted between the anchoring teeth. This is used if several of your teeth have broken or fractured. Porcelain crowns and bridges are essentially just dental crowns and dental bridges made of porcelain material rather than other materials like ceramics, metals, alloys, etc. Porcelain crowns and bridges are often fused to metal to strengthen them.

The typical cost for a dental crown — a porcelain-fused-to-metal-crown — is $500 to $1500 per tooth. It can even be more.

If your temporary crown breaks, you should immediately make an appointment with your dentist for a new temporary crown. Without a temporary crown in place, your oral cavity will be extremely sensitive and exposed so set up an appointment fast. Furthermore, the exposed teeth can also erupt or get damaged, in which case the doctor will have to do further work in order to fit them for the permanent crown.

A dental crown is recommended after a root canal treatment if it’s a premolar or one of the grinding teeth from the back. These teeth are consistently used for eating and chewing so they need to be strong. Root canal treatment essentially renders the teeth weaker because the pulp has been removed from them, which is why a dental crown is necessary to strengthen them.

The following steps will show you exactly how your teeth are prepared to receive the porcelain crown or bridges.

  • Initial x-ray examination to analyze your jaws and teeth in order to determine the correct treatment plan.
  • The dental bridge specialist will measure your teeth and take an impression of your teeth’s shape and size in order to prepare an identical crown. The dental specialist will also select the exact color shade of your teeth.
  • The dental bridge specialist will prepare a temporary crown and place it over your tooth in the next session so your tooth is protected while the crown is being prepared. The permanent crown should take 2 to 3 weeks to be ready.
  • The dental bridge specialist will use anesthesia and place the dental crown over your current tooth. You’ll bite to ensure proper alignment and adjustment.
  • The dental bridge specialist will cement the dental crown and bridges in position.

Porcelain crowns and bridges serve a number of different purposes. The following are some of the primary reasons you may need tooth crown and bridges:

  • To protect your weak or decaying teeth from damages, injuries, or fractures.
  • Enhance your oral cosmetic appearance if you have misshaped or broken teeth.
  • Restore your smile and the original aesthetic value of decaying teeth.
  • Cover up a tooth so that it resembles all of the adjacent teeth.
  • Cover up teeth that are stained or crooked.
  • Dental crowns are often used in children’s teeth to protect them from advanced decay, especially if the child doesn’t follow strict oral hygiene.
  • Dental crowns and bridges are also used on certain teeth after a root canal treatment because the root canal removes the pulp, rendering the teeth weak. As such, dental crowns and bridges help protect them from damage caused by chewing, eating, etc.
  • A complete set of well-aligned teeth also improves your diction and you can eat better.
  • Dental crowns and bridges may also help with a lisp.
  • Porcelain crowns and bridges are extremely strong and can also last a lifetime if you take care of them.
  • Correctly distributing bite force.
  • Dental crowns and bridges also prevent your surrounding teeth from drifting away, which can happen if there’s a gap between your teeth.
