Dental crowns are the most common of dental cosmetic restoration procedures. Dental crowns are used as a method of encapsulating a tooth that has been damaged. A dental crown is used when a tooth has lost its structure or aesthetics because of discolouring, a fracture, tooth decay or an old filling that has been damaged. Also, following a root canal procedure, dental crowns are used to cover and protect what is remaining of the tooth.
The dental professional will use a dental crown to improve the strength and appearance of the tooth. Made from a strong material such as Zirconia (a white metal) or porcelain, the dental crown is coordinated with the color of the natural teeth to look as natural as possible. If you take good care of your dental crowns they can last for many years following the cosmetic dentistry restoration procedure.
Dental Crowns are part of the restorative care that is done by the dental professionals at Quad Dental. They are used as a means of repairing a patient’s tooth that has been either partially damaged or has undergone a root canal. The crown is needed to cover the natural tooth and protect it from further damage or decay.
As mentioned above, a dental crown is used following a root canal (Endodontics) procedure. A root canal is a form of cosmetic dentistry which is intended to remedy an issue with the nerve tissue (soft pulp) within the tooth itself. When you are experiencing tooth pain and wish to keep the tooth, often the remedy is a root canal.
The dental professionals at Quad Dental are experts at root canal procedures. It is only a myth that root canals are painful and come with many complications. Infection is a possibility, which is most likely the reason for the pain you are experiencing before the root canal procedure. But the root canal procedure itself is going to get rid of the pain once the procedure is completed.
Another procedure that can be used instead of dental crowns are dental implants. Dental implants are used if the tooth is lost or extracted due to an accident or tooth decay. Dental Implants are a procedure that Quad Dental also does at the dental clinic. The dental implant is used to replace and fill in a permanent gap and blend in with the other natural teeth.
