Crowns are basically tooth caps. Similar to how soldiers wear a body of armor, so too are crowns basically body armor for a tooth. Most crowns usually come from eating too much candy, sweets, junk food, etc. that creates a cavity. Those cavities are basically holes in the tooth that can create homes for bacteria and other microorganisms that would threaten the health of your teeth, nerves, gums, and then the rest of your body. Getting a crown will allow you to protect that gaping cavity in your mouth as well as improve the strength and appearance of your teeth.
How to Crown Your Tooth:
If you wish to have a crown on your tooth, you may do so by requesting a dentist to create a dental impression or use a prepared tooth to get an approximation of the type of crown you want. We will get the approximate dimensions so that the crown may fit snugly in your mouth without taking up too much space from your surrounding teeth, which would cause a serious condition in which the teeth start getting out of line, resulting in crooked teeth. After we get the crown formed to fit your mouth, we return and insert it. There are many different options that could be used for this procedure and we can even give you the crown in different colors, based upon your aesthetic preferences. For example, we could have it done in gold, silver, or porcelain, if you choose to have the crown match the appearance of your teeth.
To prepare the mouth for crown, there has to be removal of some parts of the tooth, which is completely irreplaceable when compared to the current materials available. However, when the condition of your teeth get to the point where it is highly unlikely that they will ever get to their original state and will actually get worse over time, then it is beneficial to request a crown operation, because over time, the benefits of the crown will outweigh the many negatives of leaving your teeth free to rot. There are advantages and disadvantages with getting crowns. The main disadvantage of getting a crown is the irreversible procedures that go into forming the crown, which usually requires chipping away some of your tooth/teeth in order to make room for the crown. However, the benefits of not letting the entire tooth rot away in the future far outweighs the disadvantage of having the crown.
