People often decide to just live with dental problems because they don't realize that there are simple solutions to many tooth-related dental crownsissues. In fact, dental crowns, one of the most versatile types of dentistry treatments available, not only strengthen weak teeth but also conceal imperfections. Dr. Mark Boukzam, your Deerfield Beach, FL, dentist explains how you can benefit from dental crowns.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are hollow, tooth-shaped restorations that fit over teeth. They're made of materials that look like tooth enamel, but that are tough enough to stand up to years of wear and tear; the materials may consist of porcelain, resin and porcelain-fused-to-metal.

When are crowns recommended by your Deerfield Beach, FL, dentist?

Crowns are used to:

  • Strengthen Weak Teeth: Teeth can become weak due to cracks, large fillings or root canal treatment. Once a tooth is weakened, it's more likely to break. Crowns protect fragile teeth and bring much-needed stability.
  • Cover Defects: Crowns cover chips and discolorations and are a good choice if a tooth is a little crooked or just doesn't look like your other teeth. Do you grind your teeth at night? Grinding can eventually wear down teeth and affect your bite. Crowns restore the full height of your teeth.
  • Replace Missing Teeth: Crowns are used to create dental bridges, which replace missing teeth. Bridges consist of an artificial tooth connected to a crown on either side.

What happens when I receive a crown?

Before you receive your crown, your dentist prepares the tooth to allow the crown to fit correctly. After your tooth is prepared, your dentist makes an impression of your mouth. A dental laboratory uses the impression as a guide to ensure that the crown they make fits well. Before you leave the office, you'll be fitted with a temporary crown. Although temporary crowns are surprisingly tough, it's a good idea to avoid eating hard or sticky foods with them.

Your new crown should be ready in about two weeks. When you return for your appointment, your dentist will check your bite and make any necessary adjustments to the crown and attach it with dental cement.

Crowns improve and protect your smile! Call Dr. Mark Boukzam, your Deerfield Beach, FL, dentist, at (954) 429-8506 to schedule an appointment.
