Dental crowns – also known as caps – are custom-fitted tooth “covers” fixed over the surfaces of natural tooth structures or dental implants. They are non-removable and must be cemented in place by a dentist. Patients who get crown to restore their smiles achieve both the function and appearance of natural, healthy teeth.
Zirconium crowns are metal-free crowns that are made of a semi-transparent ceramic with an opaque core. Their composition allows Zirconia-based restorations to take on an exceptionally natural appearance, making them virtually invisible to anyone who is not a dentist.
Zirconia ceramics provide the strongest and longest-lasting solution for dental crowns – all with the guarantee of no metal oxidation that would result in graying or darkening of the margins near the gum line. This makes them an ideal solution for restorations in both the anterior and posterior teeth.
If you have a tooth that is damaged or decayed, but still intact, a dental crown may be right for you.
How is my crown placed?
If you are a patient for a metal-free crown, your teeth will be reduced to ensure a proper fit.
An impression will then be taken of your bite and used to fabricate a mold for the crown.
If you are choosing porcelain prosthesis, its color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth.
If the crown is too complicated, you may be fitted with a temporary restoration until the permanent one is ready for placement.
Do I need to follow any post-treatment care ?
Your teeth will need time to heal following the crown placement process, so it is normal for you to experience some sensitivity – especially to hot and cold.
Additionally, you may experience soreness in the gums surrounding your restorations, though this is usually manageable with ibuprofen and should subside within a few days.
Crowns are the easiest , safest and best way to restore your smile , beat the signs of aging and look younger and smarter !
