Fix Your Smile By Restoring Your Tooth
Crowns have been part of restorative dentistry for centuries. Crowns have been made from a number of materials. Different material could fulfill different needs.
Metal crowns were an excellent option for restoring the function of your damaged teeth. Gold and amalgam crowns did a great job of allowing people to eat a wide variety of foods.
With advances in ceramics, people could get dental crowns that looked more like natural teeth. Early ceramics, however, were fragile compared to metal crowns. As a result, these weren’t as durable as their metal counterparts.
With more time, new ceramics were developed that offered a high level of durability in addition to looking like real teeth. These new ceramics offer the best of both worlds — an attractive smile with functional replacement teeth.
Getting crowns has become a fairly straightforward process. First, your tooth is reshaped to remove the parts that have been weakened by decay or damage, appear discolored, or are oddly shaped.
What’s left of your healthy tooth provides the support for your new crown, which is bonded in place with an adhesive. When all is said and done, your new crown will blend in with the rest of your smile.
Don’t Wait To Repair Your Tooth
Not long ago, getting a crown was a more extensive process. You used to need to visit a dentist, have your tooth reshaped, and wear a temporary crown for a few days or a few weeks. The delay was because your crown had to be made a dental lab. How quickly it was completed would depend on how many orders were placed ahead of yours and how far the lab was from your dentist’s office.
By coming to Newingham Dental Center, you can get your permanent crown on the same day your tooth is reshaped. This is because of our investment in CEREC technology at our office.
We have an in-house milling machine that can turn a piece of porcelain into a tooth-shaped crown in a matter of a few hours. You can leave with your real crown in one trip to our office.
