In dental dentistry, dental crown refers to the whole anatomical region of front teeth, typically covered completely by enamel on one side. The dental crown is normally visible in the mouth, even after growing behind the gums and then erupting in place. If a portion of the tooth is damaged or chipped, a dental crown can be applied.
Many patients prefer to use dental crowns because they look natural. A dental crown looks just like the other teeth around it. Hence, it provides a sense of uniformity for the patient. When you visit a clinic, your dentist will examine the tooth and the crown and then determine if you are eligible for an in-network or an out-of-network dentist.
To see whether you qualify for an in-network or an out-of-network dentist, your dental laboratory staff can test your bite for correctness. An x-ray examination shows whether there are any changes in the teeth structure as the patient smiles or sways. An oral examination by the dentist, using dental laboratory equipment, determines the quality of your bite. It also enables the dentist to determine the possibility of getting a new dental crown or if there are other dental problems that require immediate attention.
There are different types of dental crowns available in the dental lab. A gum lift, in which the gum is lifted back, is one type of dental crown. Losing a tooth can result in a shortened face. Dentists can provide dental crowns to lengthen the face by repairing the nerves that have been damaged due to the loss of the tooth.
If you lose a tooth through the negligence or fault of another person, your insurance company might not pay for the dental crown required to replace the lost tooth. For this reason, it is important to have a complete medical history from the patient before a treatment plan is approved by the dental insurance company. Having a complete medical history will also enable your dentist to judge the strength of your jaw muscles and help determine which dental crown will give the best long-lasting results.
A beautiful, healthy smile can be achieved with dental crowns. They can restore confidence and enhance self-esteem. Visit your dentist for a dental crown evaluation and consultation. Together with a good dental insurance provider, you can achieve a bright, healthy and confident smile.
As most people live with missing teeth, a dental crown is a permanent solution. Dental crowns are made to cover the remaining portion of the tooth structure that can be seen above the gum line. Crowns are designed to look like the remaining portion of the tooth and are bonded to the gum tissue to cover the remaining exposed tooth structure. A dental crown is durable and will stay on for several years without the need for extra dental visits.
A dental crown will require the replacement of the damaged tooth. Crowns do not cover the gap between the damaged tooth and the crown. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover this gap. Porcelain veneers are custom-made to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. If you choose porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, they will also need to be replaced after several years.
