Tired of having damaged and decayed teeth that don’t seem to be getting any better on their own? If you have broken or decayed teeth, All-Ceramic Restorations could be an excellent solution.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are restorations, which are used to bolster decayed and damaged teeth. Crowns are commonly referred to as caps, as they are placed over the top of the existing natural tooth structure. Dental crowns can be made using a variety of materials, but Dr. Rinaldi often recommends all-porcelain crowns. Porcelain provides a natural-looking aesthetic and it also has a beautiful luminescence, which is comparable to healthy, natural teeth.
Why would I need a dental crown?
Dental crowns are an effective restorative solution for individuals who have damaged or weak teeth as a result of decay, oral infections, trauma, and dental injuries. Crowns strengthen the tooth and the treatment process also helps to reduce the risk of further decay and additional infection. If you have a broken or discolored tooth, crowning the tooth can also enhance the look of your smile.
As well as being employed to strengthen the natural teeth, dental crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth. If you are considering implant treatment to fill a gap, crowns are frequently used to replace the visible part of the tooth once the implant, which takes on the role of the root, has been fitted. Did you know that by age 50, Americans have lost an average of 12 teeth (including wisdom teeth)? Dental implants (and crowns) are often used to replace those teeth.
