What Crowns Can Do
Crowns have been used to correct a wide range of problems for thousands of years. Now, our modern crowns are much better than the ones people were using hundreds of years or even decades ago.
To give you a taste of what crowns could do for you, consider this of things they can fix:
- Broken teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Infected teeth
- Missing teeth
- Undersized teeth
- Worn-down teeth
If you have any of these problems, then you should be contacting us as soon as you are able to restore or improve your tooth’s size, shape, and function.
The Benefit of Zirconia Crowns
Previous generations had to make a choice with they were fixing a problematic tooth. They could have a smile that looked natural, or they could restore their ability to bite and chew.
With our zirconia crowns, you don’t have to decide. You can have a beautiful smile again, and you can continue eating the foods that you love.
Zirconia is a translucent material that reflects light practically the same as your natural teeth. In fact, it’s more translucent than porcelain.
Our zirconia crowns also contain no metal, so you won’t have to worry about a tell-tale black line on your tooth. And since they are metal-free, this greatly reduces the odds that you or someone you love could have an allergic reaction of some kind.
And since it’s also durable, you could have your zirconia crown for decades with proper care before it needs to be replaced (if it ever does).
Getting a Zirconia Crown
To get any crown, the first step is often reshaping the tooth to remove the part that has been weakened by decay or trauma. This also is when a dentist will create an abutment to support your new crown with the healthy portion of your teeth.
With zirconia, we don’t have to remove as much of your healthy tooth, which makes this procedure simpler than it would be with other kinds of crowns. Once your crown is in place, your tooth will look as good as new and maybe even better.
Crowns also protect what’s left of your healthy tooth, but providing a cover to protect it from harmful bacteria. You just have to remember to brush, floss, and get regular dental checkups like you do already.
