When you have a tooth that is cracked or broken, or one with major tooth decay, we could repair it and return function, health, and beauty with a crown. In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists talk about how we offer custom repairs with crowns, and could even help replace missing teeth.
When a Crown Helps Your Smile
A dental crown is a substantial dental restoration that we use to address a variety of minor and extensive cosmetic and restorative concerns. The finished product will cover everything above the gum line. We could use them to repair chips, cracks, and breakage, and to lengthen the teeth worn down by teeth grinding. Treatment for advanced decay or even an infected tooth is possible, and we could reshape malformed portions of the smile too. As we will discuss in detail further on, we can also aid in the replacement of missing teeth too! Since we craft each one from materials like porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia, we can shade them to blend with your smile seamlessly!
Crafting a Custom Restoration
Each one we craft will be custom-made for your smile, ensuring a balanced bite and also a lifelike appearance. To begin, we will need to numb the areas around the tooth to keep you comfortable. Next, we will remove structure from the tooth in question, and then take detailed digital images and measurements, which help us design and craft the finished product in a lab setting. When the restoration is ready, you will return for a second visit. We check the fit and if necessary, make some final adjustments. Finally, we attach the crown with a powerful bonding agent, and with proper care and attention this could remain in place for many years to come, safeguarding your smile!
Supporting Dental Bridges
We could use them to help with missing teeth. For minor tooth loss, we could design a bridge with crowns on either side. We attach these restorations to the abutment teeth on each side of the gap to secure your ones firmly in place. We can also restore a single tooth dental implant too! This means we attach a custom restoration to the implant post with an abutment, so you can smile with confidence and enjoy lifelike tooth replacement.
If you have any questions about how we improve your smile with the placement of one or more restorations, or if you would like to schedule an appointment, then give us a call!
