What are crowns? Are they headwear for royalty? Not quite. A crown is a solid, fixed cap that is adhered permanently onto a tooth or teeth. A dental crown helps to cover and protect a damaged or decayed tooth, also strengthening the tooth and improving both the appearance of the tooth as well as the alignment inside the mouth.
At Shine Dental, our trained and skilled dentist and staff will speak to you and discuss all your options regarding dental care and the need for crowns. We have a modern office with state of the art digital x-ray services. We will perform a free consultation with x-rays to determine if a crown is the best treatment for your damaged or decayed tooth. We even have a trained specialist on-site that can assist with difficult cases!
Dental crowns come in a variety of materials including ceramic, porcelain, gold, and metal alloy. They can be molded to replicate the look of your natural teeth. Our skilled healthcare team at Shine Dental use porcelain crowns to cover and repair your damaged teeth. We use this type because it provides a strong bond and is extremely durable. We do not want you to be in the middle of an excellent meal and have your crown fall off ruining your dining experience. We use only the best crown materials for our patients.
We do have sedation available for family members that are anxious about their visit. We will work at your pace to keep you comfortable the entire time, and we will give you the smile you always wanted!
Teeth can become damaged from a variety of reasons including trauma, decay, or enamel erosion. Porcelain crowns are often chosen as the treatment of choice as they are known for their resilience and appearance. That is why we opt to fit our patients with porcelain crowns. These crowns replace the outside part of your tooth to allow it to resume its original function while looking and feeling great, which then causes you to flash those pearly whites!
Once your crown has been permanently placed by the professional team at Shine Dental, there isn’t any real maintenance you have to perform to keep the porcelain in functioning condition. Since the crown has replaced your natural tooth, you will want to treat it the same as your original tooth. It needs to be cleaned daily, just as your natural teeth, by regular brushing and flossing. You also need to schedule regular dental cleanings and exams!
While waiting to go home after your porcelain crown placement, you can lounge in comfort in our modern rooms that are equipped with flat-screen televisions. Wi-Fi is also available for your enjoyment.
