It can be hard to keep track of all the daily wear and tear our teeth experience. From consuming too much sugar to grinding teeth and not brushing teeth regularly, these habits can damage teeth and lead to dental problems such as decay or cracking. Fortunately, Dr. Kari Amick and Dr. Meredith Burns offer dental crowns that act as a protective shield against further destruction.
Dental crowns are a type of tooth restoration used to cover a damaged, weakened, or decayed tooth. It is a cap that is placed over the tooth, and it is designed to match the natural color, shape, and size of the patient’s tooth. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, or a combination of both materials. Dental crowns are a popular and effective restorative dentistry solution for many dental issues, and they can last for many years with proper care.
At Inspire Dental, our Firestone dentists firmly believe in the benefits of a holistic approach to dentistry. One way we implement this approach is by offering metal-free dental crowns. While traditional crowns are often made with metals such as nickel or silver, the materials we use are free of any metals that could potentially harm our patients, especially those with metal allergies or sensitivities.
Additionally, metal-free crowns are often more aesthetically pleasing as they blend seamlessly with the rest of your natural teeth. Overall, our holistic dental team strives to provide the highest level of care possible, and offering metal-free dental crowns is just one way we ensure that our patients’ health and well-being are our top priority.
Dental crowns are a popular restorative option for patients looking to improve their tooth structure and overall aesthetics. The size of the tooth is reduced and the tooth is shaped to make room for the crown. This step is crucial as it provides ample space for the crown to fit comfortably, ensuring proper function and an optimal appearance.
Then, our dentists use a high-resolution camera to take images and create a 3D model of the patient’s teeth—without the need for goopy impressions. The custom 3D model will be used to create a permanent crown that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Once processed, our dentists will carefully place the crown over the treated tooth, ensuring that it is secure and fits perfectly.
Once in place, patients can expect to enjoy restored function and an enhanced smile. Tooth-colored dental crowns are a safe and reliable option for patients looking to improve their oral health and cosmetic appeal.
