Coronado Dental Crowns
How Dental Crowns Work
Dental crowns are an inconspicuous, durable method of restoring damaged teeth. Their creation can be outsourced to a lab, or we can make them in-office with our CEREC milling unit.
During your first appointment, Dr. Strommer will inspect your tooth to ensure it’s able to support a crown. A scan is taken of your mouth to create a digital impression. This impression is transferred to the CEREC milling unit where the crown will be crafted specifically to your tooth. While to crown is being made, Dr. Strommer will prepare the tooth to receive the crown. Once the crown is finished, and the tooth is correctly shaped, Dr. Strommer will attach the permanent crown to your tooth using a special adhesive.
For special cases, the digital impression is sent to a dental lab where precise technology will match the ceramic cap to your tooth. As this process takes longer, Dr. Strommer will install a temporary crown, which will protect your tooth until the permanent crown is ready. A second procedure is necessary for our team to remove the temporary crown and permanently install the new crown.
And that’s it! With just an initial examination and one or two quick, minimally-invasive procedures, you can restore your damaged tooth.
The Benefits Of Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns are typically more expensive than fillings. So why should you choose a dental crown? Well, there are a variety of reasons.
Long-lasting restoration – While dental crowns regularly last between 5-15 years, with good oral care, they have been known to extend past that, even up to 25 years for some patients. With a disciplined dental hygiene regimen and regular visits to Isabella Avenue Dentistry, you can expect your dental crowns to last far longer than fillings.
Comfortable feel and natural appearance – Modern crowns are mostly made from ceramic or porcelain and will match the natural color of your teeth. They are also designed to feel like regular teeth and match your bite. This means there is no change to your dental occlusion. You can eat, smile and speak naturally.
Resistant to damage or stains – Porcelain and ceramic crowns will never yellow or stain. They are highly durable and able to withstand the same impact as a natural tooth.
