Crowns are a dental restoration procedure that fully cover over the portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line, when cemented into place. This is in comparison to fillings, which fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Because dental crowns cover the entire visible surface area of a tooth, a dental crown basically becomes the tooth's new outer surface. Crowns can be formed out of porcelain (a sort of dental ceramic), Zirconia (see below), a type of metal (a gold or other metal), or a combination of both.
The key to success for great oral health is preventive maintenance. Early detection of any issues and prompt treatment lead to a positive dental experience. At a hygiene (cleaning) appointment, an assessment of the gums, teeth, soft tissues, head and neck are done. Radiographs (X-rays) may be taken and routine oral cancer screenings are done for our adult patients. Once the session is completed, we will schedule your next hygiene appointment.
If you want a smile that's your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
Gum Disease / Periodontics
Did you know that keeping your mouth healthy can help prevent heart disease, aid in the control of diabetes and promote healthy pregnancies? It’s true. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries, and stroke. Good oral care is imperative to overall wellness. There’s simply no question that a healthy mouth can lead to a long, healthy life.
Root Canal / Endodontics
A root canal may save that tooth. Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth could get infected, and you could lose it. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then a crown is placed over the tooth to help make it stronger.
Many factors, including dietary habits (drinking coffee, tea, soda, and red wine) and certain medications, affect the whiteness of your smile. Tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discoloration, while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance. Opalescence® provides brighter, whiter smiles in as little as one hour.
Wisdom teeth are a valuable asset to the mouth when they are healthy and properly positioned. Often, however, problems develop that require their removal. When the jaw isn't large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted (unable to come in or misaligned). Wisdom teeth may grow sideways, emerge only part way from the gum, or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
