Dental Crowns are a restorative procedure that are used to improve shape and strength of your cracked, damaged, or decayed tooth. A dental crown is often an alternative and better option to teeth extraction and used to save your natural tooth that is broken, worn, or has portion of it destroyed by tooth decay. A dental crown can also anchor a dental bridge, which is a replacement option for a lost tooth.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE REASONS TO CHOOSE DENTAL CROWNS?

If you have tooth that has been significantly damaged or decayed, and you are considering the extraction of your tooth, Dr. Maryam Horiyat can evaluate it to preserve your natural tooth by a dental crown or porcelain inlay or onlay.
Porcelain Crowns are often indicated in the following cases:  

WHAT IS A CROWN?

A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line to restore its shape, size, and strength as well as improving its appearance. In fact, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. A crown also can be placed over your dental implant to replace your missing teeth while maintaining the anatomy and original teeth functions.
Dental crowns are normally reconstructive restorations, but sometimes they are used cosmetically, such as when they are used in combination with porcelain veneers to reshape your smile or full-mouth reconstruction.

WHAT TYPE OF CROWN IS THE BEST?

Zirconia® Crown and Solid Porcelain Crowns such E-max® and Porcera® from Nobel Biocare are the most often preferred and offered as an option at Aria Dental by Dr. Horiyat because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong. In addition, when your dentist takes X-ray of your tooth for routine checkups, the structure of your tooth under solid porcelain crown can be seen, but not under porcelain fused to metal or metal crown. Solid porcelain crowns and Zirconia crowns are also more biocompatible with your oral tissues, which ultimately decreases gum irritation and gum recession compared to metal-based crowns. Zirconia is not as translucent as porcelain or lithium disilicate (IPS) and therefore doe does not look as much like natural teeth. Thus, Dr. Horiyat in general recommends using zirconia for posterior teeth (molars) and IPS or metal-free porcelain crown for anterior (front) teeth. 

BENEFITS OF SOLID PORCELAIN OR ZIRCONIA CROWNS

Zirconia or solid porcelain crown makes a good choice for dental material because:

WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS OR ONLAYS USED FOR?

Crowns or Onlays (partial crowns) are used to reshape your tooth or when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is fabricated away from your mouth.

Your crown is fabricated in a dental laboratory using CAD-CAM techniques or in your dental office using CEREC. Aria Dental creates your crown in one of the best local USA labs from your unique high precision digital tooth impression by iTero Element without using gooey impression. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed. Thus, a dental crown protects and strengthen your tooth as well as giving it a new attractive surface. 

CHOOSING A RIGHT DENTIST FOR YOUR DENTAL CROWNS

Dental crowns are powerful restorations because they are strong, however, if they are placed without appropriate care, they can be not only uncomfortable, but also contribute to imbalance bite and ultimately causes significant wear on your opposing tooth. When selecting a dentist for your dental crown, choose one that is experienced in placing the highest quality of dental crowns, has a record of comfortable results without any redo, offer digital impression by iTero rather than tradition gooey impression materials, and has knowledge about neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on how the teeth, muscles, and jaw work together, and can help dentists ensure the proper fit for dental crowns.
