What are dental crowns?

Related Categories

There are several different types of dental restorations used in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry provides Redlands area patients with a wide selection to allow them to choose the ones best for their specific needs. When patients are interested in protecting their natural tooth structure, their dentist may suggest the placement of dental crowns.

Dental crowns are a common restoration used by patients to repair teeth that have been broken or damaged. They can provide natural teeth with an extra layer of protection that can keep it from experiencing further problems. Dr. Terry Vines uses porcelain to fabricate dental crowns. This material is not only similar to natural tooth enamel but is also strong. Beauty and strength are two of the primary reasons dental crowns are used to avoid extraction of weakened teeth.

Dental crowns are common and patients should not worry if their dentist suggests having one placed within the smile. Crowns are a wonderful way to ensure the natural teeth are not damaged. By bonding a dental crown over the top of a tooth, patients can maintain their natural teeth and avoid needing tooth replacement solutions.

Dental crowns are easy to place. Patients come into the dental practice for the preparation of their natural tooth, which requires a portion of the enamel to be filed off. Then, impressions are done and sent out to a dental laboratory where a ceramist fabricates the new restoration. The crown is made to specifications for size and color and sent to the dental office within a few weeks for the final bonding.

Dr. Terry Vines and the team of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry work together with patients to determine the best solutions for their smile. Dental crowns and other cosmetic solutions are available through his state-of-the-art practice and new and existing patients are welcome to visit him for an examination and consultation appointment to learn more about the ways in which restorative dentistry can help patients maintain the health and wellness of their natural smiles.
