EXCELLENT & AESTHETIC DENTAL CROWNS TREATMENT
Dental crowns are “caps” (tooth shaped) placed on the tooth or teeth for various reasons, which may be;
- To restore its strength
- Protect or cover the tooth from damage
- Correct the size and the shape
- Improve the appearance of the teeth
- Pediatric treatment
- Save the tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Protect a weak tooth
Aesthetic dental crowns are technically designed to match all suitable purposes of a patient. The crowns may be temporary or permanent that encase the whole portion of the tooth that lies above the gum.
TYPES OF CROWNS AVAILABLE
There are both temporary and permanent crowns and permanent crowns are usually made from stainless steel, all metal such as gold, or another alloy), all resin, porcelain-fused-to-metal and so on.
Stainless Steel Crowns
These are prefabricated crowns that are used as temporary measures on permanent teeth. The crown is used to cover and protect the filling or the tooth while a permanent tooth is made from another material
In most cases, stainless steel crowns are used for child suffering from tooth decay (with primary teeth) and when the permanent teeth are set to grow, the crown will fall out together with the tooth.
Also referred to as full-cast crowns, porcelain-fused to metal crowns are those with porcelain fused on most or all parts of the tooth. To avoid breakage, metal alloys with a high melting temperature are used to fuse the porcelain to the surface and as well prevent the metal from melting.
As we age, chew, and bite, we subject our teeth to a series of activities that may cause wear with time. In addition, damage to the teeth may at times fail to be treated and solved even with filling and crowns emerge as the possible solution.
Tooth-colored crowns are bonded to the tooth for both medical and cosmetic reasons.
These are crowns that include alloy with a high composition of gold or platinum, or base-metal alloys. These can withstand all pressure and perhaps last longer than other crowns.
These may be used for both front and back teeth and provide a suitable color match with your natural teeth.
These are less costly, but may not be suitable for Dental Crowns Treatment in India in case you desire quality treatment.
Procedure of Dental Crown Treatment
- Dental crowns are dental restorers and require an examination by an endodontist. During the first visit, the doctor will thoroughly evaluate your damaged teeth and decide the suitable crowns. The tooth will be prepared.
- The dentist will conduct an X-ray to check the bone and the roots of the teeth.
- A root canal treatment may be first conducted in the case of an infection, extreme tooth decay or damage
- On the second visit, the doctor will anaesthetize the surrounding region, gum, and the teeth.
- The intended tooth will be filed down along with the chewing surface and sides to create space for the crown. The dentist may then use a filling material to build up the damaged or injured tooth in order to support the crown.
- A digital scanner may be used to make impressions after which the impression or scan is sent to the laboratory to manufacture the crown.
- A temporary crown is usually used as the permanent dental crown is being manufactured and once you return for final treatment, the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown is fitted (cemented) under local anesthesia.
The Cost of Dental Crowns
The cost usually varies depending on the type of dental crown selected, and the clinic visited. The Dental Crown Treatment Cost in India is usually $750 to $1800. Our dental centre provides aesthetic dentistry treatment at the best rate ever.
