How Can I Benefit From A Dental Crown?

Anyone who has broken or decayed dentition will tell you how embarrassing it is to smile or talk. These people usually try to compensate by covering their mouths when talking. This can destroy their self-esteem and social life. Aesthetics aside, open dentinal tubules and active caries can cause serious health problems if left untreated.

Dental crowns are popular in Barrie because they can treat common oral problems caused by accidents, disease and caries. They are composed purely of porcelain or porcelain fused to gold. Fitting dental crowns takes approximately two visits to your dentist. During your first appointment, the dentist will debride the tooth in an effort to remove decayed matter. It will then be shaped to increase its potential to anchor the crown enabling it to withstand chewing forces.

The tooth may need to undergo rebuilding procedures if the dentist deems it too small. An impression will be taken to ensure the fit of the dental crown. You will be given a temporary acrylic crown while the final one is being fabricated.

The dental crown is a long-term solution to the aesthetic problem that decayed or broken teeth poses to the patient. It also protects the area from bacteria that may enter by way of the cracks and cause infections or abscesses.

Getting dental crowns can help boost a person’s confidence. Since they are opaque, they look natural under any lighting source. They are fabricated to mimic the patient’s dentition and adapt to the bite, if done correctly. Porcelain can withstand almost the same chewing force as your dentition. This means that they will last for quite a long time.

Those with amelogenesis imperfecta will have weak enamel. This condition can be congenital or acquired. These individuals can benefit from having dental crowns. Aside from the aesthetic factor, they will also be able to enjoy food that once triggered discomfort due to exposed dentinal tubules.
