Dentists Place Dental Crowns on Patients
Dentists work on teeth in a variety of ways and for many different reasons. If your teeth need to be restored, you will likely go to see a dentist for a cleaning and checkup to see if your teeth need restoration or repair. A dental restoration involves surgically installing a crown over a damaged or decayed tooth. Dentists can perform various types of dental procedures including cosmetic and restorative procedures.
In dentistry, the term crown refers to a temporary crown
typically a type of temporary dental crown, that covers a tooth implant. Sometimes a crown is needed while a patient is waiting for a permanent or reliable tooth replacement. Sometimes a crown is simply needed when a large, deep cavity threatening the oral health of the tooth is found. Dental cement is sometimes used to bond a temporary crown to a patient’s tooth. After the cement dries, the patient can easily remove the temporary crown.
There are many different materials available to dentists
in the placement of crowns. Crowns can be made from porcelain, metal, ceramic, and silver. Some of the more popular materials used to make crowns are gold, titanium, rhinestone, porcelain, ceramic, porcelain, and silver. Each material has its own particular appearance and characteristics that can help to enhance a patient’s smile.
Dentists commonly use crowns to restore broken teeth
When a tooth has multiple missing teeth or a significant amount of decay on one or more teeth, often a simple crown can help to restore a beautiful smile. The process of restoring broken teeth with crowns is called tooth crowns. Dentists have various methods for placing crowns over teeth that have been damaged or missing.
In addition to restoring a beautiful smile
with crowns on just one or two teeth, they are used to cover gaps in between teeth. Crowns are often placed on front teeth where chewing has occurred. Chewing can cause damage to the gum tissue and gums around the back teeth. Crowns can also be used on back teeth where chewing has occurred but the damage has not occurred yet to those teeth. This helps to protect those teeth until the damage has healed or until the chewing behavior can be changed.
Dentists commonly work with metal dental crowns.
These crowns are typically made of durable white metal. The white metal is used because it is highly durable and resists denture damage and can be worn while performing dental procedures. Some metals are prone to corrosion, which can lead to discoloration over time. However, white metallic crowns are designed to resist corrosion and are easy to maintain.
