METAL-FREE DENTAL CROWNS
Fairlawn, Ohio, residents who experience damage to their teeth, may be proper candidates for restorations such as porcelain crowns. A porcelain crown is a metal-free restoration bonded over a prepared tooth to support the integrity of a weakened tooth. A tooth will need a crown for several different reasons, such as:
- A tooth with a root canal therapy
- A tooth with a fracture or a cracked tooth
- A tooth with a huge failing restoration
- A tooth with missing or broken cusps
If an extruded or supraerupted tooth is interfering with replacing the opposing tooth, a crown will support the weakened tooth structure by holding the integrity of the tooth and keeping it solid as a whole with a durable and wear-resistant metal-free full-coverage crown. This added durability and strength in the form of a full-coverage crown will protect the susceptible natural tooth from chewing and biting forces and keep it intact. All ceramic crowns are custom-designed for the patient to match the color, shape, and size of their existing teeth to ensure they blend in with the smile.
What is a Dental Crown?
Also known as a “cap,” a dental crown is one of the most common restorations used in dentistry today. Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides customized crowns made of ceramic instead of metal. Ceramic crowns are a better match for the smile. They blend in so well, making the dental work unnoticeable. These crowns are also more appropriate for patients who have metal allergies and adverse reactions to all types of metal-containing restorations.
What can I expect with the placement of a dental crown?
Dr. Sima F. Chegini of Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides dental crowns to patients who need to repair one or more teeth. The tooth that needs the crown is prepared by performing a very tedious and thorough tooth reduction to accommodate the thickness and natural size of the new restoration.
Dr. Chegini and her staff are wonderful: excellent, caring practitioners and people. I actually do not mind going to the dentist. For those that need one, the new crown making machine is a great time saver and makes a perfect fit. Renovations have begun on the office. Can’t wait to see the finished changes.
Actual Patient Before and After Results
Scans are taken and used by our CAD/CAM cutting-edge technology to create a dental crown in-house in only an hour. That eliminates the weeks of waiting often associated with other dental practices. Once the new crown is fabricated with our CEREC technology, it is bonded in place, and the patient’s process is complete. With appropriate care, patients can maintain their dental crowns for many years!
