No one wants to be told that they need restorative dentistry, but it’s a little easier to move forward with treatment if you know you’re getting state-of-the-art treatment. Royal Oaks Michigan has the tools and technology to restore your smile nearly back to its original state.
Dental crowns are one of the most versatile dental restorations available. They are used to repair teeth damaged by cavities, broken teeth, or teeth that have had root canal therapy. We’re also using crowns to restore dental implants. This year, alone, dentists across the country will place millions of crowns. Our office, North Oaks Dental, will place a huge number of crowns. But our crowns are a little different from other offices. We’re using digital imaging and strong ceramic materials to give you a great crowns.
We’re so confident in our crowns that we’re offering a 5-year guarantee on our restorations.
Today we want to share a few things you should expect in a dental crown. There are three things we should consider in a dental crown: function, fit, and appearance.
Why Our Crowns Have Great Fit and Function
We use digital technology to design our crowns. This cuts down on your time in the office, but the digital imaging allows us to find the best fit for the crown. We start by preparing the tooth and then taking an impression of the tooth with a digital wand.
Most dental offices use a goopy impression and then send the impression off to a dental lab to be fabricated. There are many great ceramists out there, but the quality of the restoration often depends on the quality of the impression. A bad impression oftens means a bad crown. The digital impression provides the perfect impression, and that allows use to provide the perfect crown. A great crown should fit perfectly on the tooth and not be too big or too small. It should also preserve your health bite. A bad restoration can fail quickly, expose the root of the tooth, or even disrupt your bite, which can lead to pain tooth or jaw issues.
Porcelain and Zirconia Look and Feel Great
One of the great things about crowns today is that they are more lifelike than ever before. The crowns will blend in perfectly with your natural smile in terms of shape, color, and translucency. Our porcelain and zirconia crowns are milled from a single chunk of ceramic material. This is an important point because some dentists are still using metal in their crowns. That’s a problem because almost every patient with metal-based crowns develop a distracting gray line near the gum line.
You won’t find any metal in our crowns, and the ceramic material looks just like any of your natural teeth.
