All-Ceramic Dental Crowns in Carrollton
The fact of the matter is that a dental crown made of gold or metal amalgam is really very strong. However, the problem is they are usually considered to be an eyesore and a distraction from what would otherwise be an attractive smile. With all-ceramic restorations, Dr. Caballeros and his team at On Point Dentistry can offer you the same strength and durability in a crown that looks no different from your other teeth.
Reasons for Getting an All-Ceramic Dental Crown
Dental crowns have long been used in dentistry for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. Some of these purposes are:
- Repairing a tooth that is severely damaged by decay
- Preventing a cracked tooth from splitting
- Protecting the remaining structure of a tooth that has had root canal therapy
- Reshaping a tooth that is ill-formed or broken as a result of injury
Placing an All-Ceramic Dental Restoration
Setting an all-ceramic restoration usually happens over the course of two appointments with Carrollton cosmetic dentist Dr. Caballeros. At the first visit, he will gently remove a thin layer of tooth enamel, as well as any decay if present. Your tooth must be slightly reshaped in order to make room for the restoration. Otherwise, your new tooth might not fit comfortably between adjacent teeth or against the opposing tooth. Once the tooth is prepared, we’ll take an impression of the tooth so our dental lab can create the perfect crown. In a couple of weeks, your all-ceramic crown will be ready for permanent placement.
In addition to restoring a damaged tooth, a dental crown can also be used as a part of a bridge to replace missing teeth. Called a crown and bridge, this prosthetic is fabricated as one unit – two crowns on both ends and false teeth in between to bridge the gap in your smile. The crowns can be cemented to healthy teeth or dental implants if adjacent teeth are too weak.
If your smile has a gap, or if you need to rebuild a damaged tooth, let Dr. Caballeros talk to you about restoring your smile with an all-ceramic restoration. Call our Carrollton dental office today to reserve your consultation visit.
