At Tooth & Co., we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest advancements in dental care to ensure not only optimal oral health but also a radiant and confident smile. One such innovation that we proudly offer is ceramic crowns – a sophisticated and health-centric solution for restoring damaged or compromised teeth. Discover the myriad benefits of ceramic crowns and how they contribute to the overall well-being of our patients.
Ceramic crowns, also known as porcelain crowns, represent a significant advancement in dental restoration technology. These crowns are crafted from high-quality ceramic materials that closely mimic the appearance and characteristics of natural teeth. At Tooth & Co., we recommend ceramic crowns for various reasons, emphasizing the following benefits:
One of the primary advantages of ceramic crowns is their remarkable aesthetic appeal. Unlike traditional metal crowns, ceramic crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. The color, translucency, and texture of ceramic closely resemble the surrounding dentition, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile.
Ceramic crowns are crafted from materials that are biocompatible and hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice for individuals with sensitivities or allergies. This ensures that the restoration integrates harmoniously with the oral environment, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.
Despite their lifelike appearance, ceramic crowns are exceptionally durable and strong. They can withstand the forces of biting and chewing, providing long-lasting functionality. This durability makes ceramic crowns an ideal solution for restoring both front and back teeth.
Ceramic crowns often require less tooth reduction compared to traditional crowns, preserving more of the natural tooth structure. This minimally invasive approach contributes to better long-term oral health and reduces the risk of complications.
Our dental team at Tooth & Co. takes pride in delivering precision-crafted ceramic crowns. Each crown is custom-designed and fabricated to ensure a perfect fit, enhancing comfort and functionality. The precise fit also minimizes the risk of bacteria infiltration, supporting optimal oral hygiene.
Ceramic crowns offer a natural feel when compared to metal alternatives. The absence of metal in the restoration eliminates the potential for temperature sensitivity, providing a comfortable and seamless experience for the patient.
The journey to a beautifully restored smile begins with a comprehensive consultation at Tooth & Co. Our experienced dental team evaluates the patient's oral health, discusses their concerns, and determines the suitability of ceramic crowns for their specific needs.
Once ceramic crowns are deemed appropriate, our skilled dentists work closely with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan. This includes choosing the right shade and shape for the crowns to ensure a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.
Tooth preparation for ceramic crowns is a minimally invasive process. Our dentists carefully remove the damaged or compromised portions of the tooth, preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible. This ensures a strong foundation for the ceramic crown.
An impression of the prepared tooth is taken using advanced digital technology. This precise impression serves as the blueprint for the fabrication of the custom ceramic crown, ensuring an accurate fit and optimal aesthetics.
While the permanent ceramic crown is being crafted in our state-of-the-art dental laboratory, a temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth. This temporary crown allows the patient to maintain normal oral function while awaiting the final restoration.
Our dental laboratory employs advanced techniques and materials to craft a custom ceramic crown that seamlessly matches the surrounding dentition. The color, shape, and translucency are meticulously designed to create a restoration that is both beautiful and functional.
Once the ceramic crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is securely bonded to the prepared tooth. Our dentists ensure a precise fit and make any necessary adjustments to optimize the patient's bite and comfort.
