You should be able to smile with dazzling pearly whites. At A.R.C. Dental health, we are dedicated to getting you the best smile of your life. That’s why we specialize in crowns and veneers so you can be confident again!
A dental crown is a “cap” that is placed on top of a damaged or cracked tooth. The goal is to provide additional support for the tooth to maintain its longevity over time. They tend to be made of either ceramic or a dental resin, depending on the condition of the tooth.
The point of a dental crown is to restore the natural tooth and eliminate any potential damage. If damage or cracks are left untreated, larger issues are bound to present themselves. This is why it’s crucial to address any issues immediately.
Dental crowns and veneers require taking digital images and impressions of your teeth. This information is used to create custom crowns and veneers that match your natural teeth.
For dental crowns, the tooth decay will be removed and the crown is cemented on top of the tooth.
First, any old fillings or other dental work that could interfere with the crown procedure will be removed. Then, we'll analyze your teeth and mouth to see if a crown is a good fit for you.
If you are a suitable candidate for them, we will create a custom-fitted crown by taking an impression of your teeth. The dentist will then prepare your tooth by removing excess tooth structure in order to leave room for the crown and keep it from breaking or falling out.
They will then apply a short term crown until your made-to-order crown arrives. When your crown is complete, the dentist will take out your temporary crown and implement a special cement known as an adhesive.
Your new crown will be held in place by the adhesive until it is resilient enough to withstand the force of chewing.
Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front layer of teeth. This is a great solution for individuals experiencing cracked, chipped or discolored teeth. Both crowns and veneers are matched to the natural color of your teeth for a seamless smile!
Following a consultation and the submission of pictures of your grin, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. These then get sent to a lab, where a technician will make a model of each one of your teeth which will show how it will look.
Your dentist will then utilize the models to make your veneers. Veneers are usually bonded to your teeth using a special adhesive after the enamel has been shaved down.
Then, the tooth will be conditioned with a gritty liquid to secure the veneer on top. With a high-quality resin, the veneer will be firmly secured on each tooth.
While the process of creating veneers is relatively simple, finding an experienced, trustworthy dentist is critical.
This is due to the fact that veneers are fragile and therefore can break or chip if not properly cared for. Good oral hygiene is key! Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once.
