Are Dental Crowns For You?
Dental Crown in Miami
How healthy and vibrant you feel often gets reflected through your smile. Unfortunately, broken, misshapen, or discolored teeth may diminish this healthy reflection. Chipped or broken teeth may also make it difficult to eat and drink what you enjoy without accompanying worry or discomfort.
Miami’s Dr. Andres de Cardenas and his staff make it their mission to make every patient feel at home. An extension of this duty is the restoration of the function, as well as the appearance of teeth by utilizing crowns on teeth for a preeminent aesthetic.
Crowns For Teeth
Crowns for teeth, or simply dental crowns and bridges, are tooth-shaped coverings that Dr. de Cardenas places over the portion of a tooth that resides above the gum line. This procedure restores the tooth’s natural function, strength, and appearance.
With a variety of crowns for teeth available, Dr. Andres de Cardenas will work closely with you in order to determine the crown material that is best suited to your unique, individual situation, in addition to your aesthetic goals.
Different Types of Crowns:
- Porcelain – Fused – To – Metal
- All Ceramic
- All Metal
The procedure to administer crowns for teeth is typically a two-visit process. The first visit will often involve Dr. de Cardenas examining the damaged teeth before preparing a mold for a permanent crown.
During the second phase, Dr. Andres de Cardenas will remove this temporary crown fixture to implement the permanent crown. As a part of the preparation process, he will remove part of the tooth’s original structure.
Once you complete the crowning procedure, a new crown will fully encase the portion of the teeth that reside above the gum line. The good news is that crowns on teeth impart greater strength and function inside of the mouth. Furthermore, onlookers will only see a tooth with a beautiful appearance.
The Lifespan of Crowns on Teeth
Crowns for teeth possess longevity with a lifespan of about 10 years. This is largely because dentists often feel most confident with a crown fixture that lasts at least this long. Nonetheless, with proper care and optimal oral hygiene, crowns on teeth may last 50 years or more.
Some crown materials last longer than others. For example, porcelain crown material is far more fragile than gold or steel.
