When you have a cracked or chipped tooth, or one with advanced tooth decay and infection, then our team can help with a custom-made dental restoration. In today’s blog, your Conroe, TX, dentist talks about how we repair smiles and offer lifelike results. A dental crown could mean optimal oral health!
When Smiles Need Restoration
The crown will cover the entire visible part of each tooth, which enables them to address an array of both cosmetic and restorative issues. For example, our team can place them to address cracked and chipped teeth, or add lengthen the ones worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). Placement could also address misshapen teeth, and improve bite balance and chewing function too. We could even use them to address tooth loss, as one or two could support a dental bridge, or a single crown could restore a dental implant.
Creating and Placing a Dental Crown
To ensure a balanced bite and proper care, each one will be custom-made. For example, we will begin by numbing your tooth and then gently removing structure from outside of the tooth. We next take detailed digital images of these teeth and combine them for a 3D impression. Using the impressions, we can design and craft the finished product in a dental lab setting. When possible, we use materials like ceramic or zirconia to ensure the restoration can be color-matched to blend with your smile seamlessly. When your new crown is ready, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We then attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent, allowing it to stay in place for years to come, improving the beauty, function, and health of your smile.
Protecting Your Smile
You can take steps to not only keep your restorations strong, but protect the health of your natural teeth at the same time. For example, be sure you brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and floss every evening, which helps limit the risk of cavities and periodontal issues. You should cut back on sugary foods and drinks too, and avoid tobacco products. Make time to see our team every six months for a checkup, so we can monitor your smile and address concerns in the early stages. In the same visit we also clean your teeth, removing harmful layers of plaque and tartar buildup.
