With our finest Grand Rapids dental services, we will put an end to that misery. Cosmetic dentistry treatment offers solution for teeth loss, teeth decay, teeth discoloration and teeth fracture – dental crowns.
Dental crowns work to restore fractured or fallen teeth by filling the gaps they left. They are used with dental implants to secure the crowns in their space. In the case of broken teeth, a crown is placed over the tooth, capping it to hide the fracture. Dental crowns are made of nontoxic materials thus they do not harm your body or health. They are also designed to last for a very long time.
It enhance the appearance of teeth affected by injury, decay or discoloration. They look very much like the rest of your teeth and function just like them as well. They are also used to protect and support weak teeth that are vulnerable to fractures.
Some are may be made from all metal, porcelain fused to metal, all resin or all ceramic. These different types of dental crowns have different properties that give different results to the client. Hence, it is important that the client discusses with the dentist what type of dental crown he or she prefers.
Generally, it last from 5 to 15 years. The durability of the crown largely depends on the amount of “wear and tear” the dental crown is subjected to. For maximum durability, it is recommended that clients follow good dental hygiene and refrain from grinding or clenching their teeth or exposing them to any sort of friction. Additionally, it is important to note that dental crowns capping decayed teeth do not protect the teeth from the furthering of the decay. Dental crowns are simply means to cover up the evident effects of decay. Therefore, always check on your teeth and gums for any signs of decay or diseases.
