In restorative and cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns are one of the most common treatments. Crowns are protective covers for your natural teeth and can restore damaged, decayed, misshapen, or broken teeth. Crowns can also attach to dental implants or anchor dental bridges. Distinctive Dentistry in Eugene, Oregon, offers ceramic dental crowns to restore the look and function of our patients’ smiles.
Over time, teeth can become damaged. This may occur due to trauma, wearing down from use and age, or even from a significant cavity or root canal infection. As a result, the size and shape of your teeth may change. A ceramic dental crown may be placed to strengthen and protect the natural tooth from further damage. A crown is a tooth-shaped covering or cap that fits over the visible portion of the natural tooth to restore or improve its appearance, strength, and function.
Traditional dental crowns are created using impressions sent off to a laboratory where the custom permanent crown is fabricated. A temporary crown will be placed while waiting for the permanent crown to be completed. Once the permanent restoration is ready, the patient returns to the office to have the crown bonded in place.
Ceramic crowns are the clear choice, especially for front teeth when it comes to health and aesthetic benefits. Advantages of ceramic crowns include the following:
