Want to recover the force of your bite?
What is a Dental Crown?
Over time, your teeth can get damaged. This can happen for a variety of reasons, like tooth decay, injuries or just use over time. Your teeth can lose their shape or size.
Dental crowns are “caps” placed on top of damaged teeth. Think of it like a snug hat for your tooth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem.
When do I need Crowns?
Diseases such as bruxism control the teeth by wearing down the tooth enamel and even reaching the fracture, in this type of cases crowns are used for their repair.
In some cases the teeth suffer severe acid erosion due to gastroesophageal reflux, eating disorders or also bruxism that severely wears down the teeth.
Some endodontic teeth are in a state of great dental destruction, in these cases a crown is required to save them avoiding their fracture. This is a protection to avoid losing the tooth.
What to expect
We perform the procedure from start to finish digitally, from taking impressions with intraoral scanners to the design and milling of the piece, which can be in lithium disilicate or zirconium.
Lithium disilicate or also called E-Max crowns, are made from a single block of this material which makes it a high strength crown. Lithium disilicate is known for its superior strength and appealing aesthetics as a restorative crown material.
Sometimes a provisional crown is placed where we check the aesthetics of the smile and its functionality before proceeding to the definitive one. Once all the anatomical and functional aspects have been verified, you will be given an appointment where we will put the finals.
