Creating Modern, Lifelike Dental Crowns

June 9, 2021

Right now, your Olathe, KS, dentists are accepting new patients! We strive to offer every patient access to a lifetime of quality dental care, treating issues at every stage of life. In today’s blog, we’re looking at how our modern and life like dental crowns can address issues that impact kids, teens, adults, and even senior patients!

When You Benefit From One

A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of each tooth. Which means we can use them to address both cosmetic and restorative issues, including problems too severe to be treated with fillings or dental bonding. We could prescribe them to address advanced cases of tooth decay, or to complete a root canal for infected or abscessed teeth. Placement could also repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. If you’ve worn down teeth due to teeth grinding, we could lengthen them again. For teeth misshapen and malformed, we could correct them in as little as two visits. If you have missing teeth, then we could secure a dental bridge or restore a single tooth dental implant.

Creating Your Custom Crowns

Each one is custom-made, as this ensures a proper fit and a balanced bite. We can also take steps to ensure they look natural and blend with the tooth. To begin, our team will administer a local numbing agent. Next, we remove structure from the tooth and take detailed digital images and impressions. The information and images we gather lets us design and craft the finished product in a dental lab setting. For many, we could use materials like porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia. These materials are strong and absorb daily bite forces, but also contain stain-resistant properties. We color-match them to blend with the smile, offering a lifelike appearance!

Keeping Your Restoration Bright

With proper care and attention, these restorations could last for many years to come. Daily care not only prevents teeth stains, but also protects the teeth from issues like infection or gum disease, which could threaten them or cause the tooth to become lost. You should brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and see is for a checkup and cleaning. If you have any questions about how we repair teeth, or if you have an issue in need of attention, then contact our team today. Our team wants to make sure patients of all ages enjoy optimal oral health.
