What are Dental Crowns Made of?

One of the most versatile and effective dental appliances that we are able to offer our patients is dental crowns. These can be made from a number of durable materials and used to restore a smile or protect teeth after damage has taken place. Here is a look at how exactly our North Hollywood dental crowns dentist creates these unique appliances and some of the common oral health conditions that they are used to treat.

Most dental crowns are made of porcelain, a composite resin, or a mixture of these two substances. These materials are used for two primary reasons, the first being the appearance of porcelain and composite resins. Our dentist can utilize composites or porcelain that will closely resemble the appearance of the patient’s natural teeth, once again allowing them to smile with confidence. These substances are also extremely durable and resistant to the countless bacteria that reside within a patient’s mouth.

Dental crowns are often used to encapsulate a tooth that has been severely damaged. When dental fractures take place or there is severe staining, the tooth will first be gently molded to make room for the dental crowns before a precise impression is made. The dental crown will then be custom made and bonded directly to the tooth with a powerful cement and a curing light.

Dental crowns can also be used to restore a smile after a single permanent tooth has been lost. First, dental implants are anchored into the mouth in the area that has been left exposed by the missing tooth. Once the mouth has fully healed and formed a strong bond with the implant, custom dental crowns can be attached directly to the implant. This will not only restore the appearance of the patient’s smile, it will also prevent the natural teeth from sagging inwards towards the open space.

These amazing dental appliances are only the beginning when it comes to the advanced treatment options that we are able to offer our patients. Feel free to contact our dental office today to schedule your next comprehensive dental exam for a vibrant and healthy smile.
