A crown provides a number of benefits, from repairing teeth to addressing tooth loss. But what about the cosmetic benefits? In today’s blog, we’re looking at how our custom crowns can help improve the beauty of smiles in Olathe, KS. With our personalized approach to dentistry, we can offer repair and restoration that blends with your smile seamlessly.
CRAFTING A CUSTOM REPAIR OPTION
Each one is custom made for your smile, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all restoration that provides quality smile improvement. We begin by preparing the tooth that will receive a restoration. We need to remove a small amount of outer structure to make room for the crown. Next, we take measurements and impressions of the tooth, which will be used in the design process. When you return for your second visit, we will have completed your new restoration. In the interim period, we may suggest a temporary. We will check the fit of your completed crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure an accurate fit. We then place it with a powerful bonding agent, which ensures an accurate and comfortable fit.
When can use them to repair chips, cracks, and minor or serious breakage. We can lengthen worn down teeth and even close gaps between teeth. Placement also aids in tooth replacement, anchoring dental bridges in place or restoring a single tooth dental implant.
THE MATERIALS WE USE
For the front facing teeth, we may opt for an all-porcelain option. Porcelain mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, and can also be shaded to better match the rest of the smile. The material also contains stain-resistant properties. For the side and rear teeth, which must absorb more serious bite forces, we may opt for porcelain-fused-to-metal, which combines the strength of metal restorations with the lifelike appearance of porcelain.
CARING FOR YOUR NEWLY REPAIRED TOOTH
Since your restoration is attached to a natural tooth, that means they’re still vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. Which means routine care is crucial for ensuring long-lasting repair. We suggest brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes and flossing every night before going to sleep, which removes food particles and limits the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. We also urge regular visits for checkups and cleanings every six months, so we can monitor your smile and perform a cleaning, which removes all the plaque that brushing and flossing alone cannot.
