Dental Crowns In Marshfield – South Shore, MA

In time, teeth can become damaged, decayed, chipped, or broken. They can also be worn down by everyday use, which can lead to dental cavities. Once these set in, it is only a matter of time before there is more extensive, serious damage to both the tooth itself and the health of an individual. There are ways to address these problems, but few are more durable and comfortable than a professionally fitted dental crown.

A dental crown is a protective cap that is placed over the tooth itself. It’s often used after a root canal has been performed, but it can also be a good solution if you’ve got damage to the structure of the tooth that a bonding won’t fix. The covering itself is handmade by a certified lab technician and customized to fit the shape and appearance of the tooth. There are many different options to choose from when picking the right dental crown for your tooth. Dr. Burghardt will cover these options during your initial consultation.

A Closer Look At Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be made from many materials, but they tend to fall into one of three different categories, all of which are chosen based on their comfort in the mouth and their appearance. The three most common types of dental crowns are:

  • Porcelain dental crowns
  • Metal alloy dental crowns
  • Porcelain and metal dental crowns

Each material has its own advantages that are worth considering. For example, porcelain is used because it has a natural appearance when compared to your own teeth. While it may not be as strong as metal, it is still quite durable and able to be used in eating and biting. It also offers the most natural looking appearance of any of your other options, which means that it can be the most discrete type of dental crown without compromising your need for a strong, durable cap.

Metal dental crowns are not as popular as they used to be for dental crown selection, but they do still have several advantages that make them a choice for some patients. Metal alloy dental crowns can last for a longer period when compared to porcelain dental crowns, and they can provide a much stronger resistance to damage. In addition, metal doesn’t chip. The type of metal alloy used in crown construction won’t add an “unnatural” taste to your mouth either, which is good for the patient’s own daily experience.

Finally, combining metal and porcelain can often yield the best of both worlds. A porcelain shell is used for the exterior of the crown, while the interior structure is made from metal alloy, which provides the strength that keeps your crown standing during everyday use. By having the porcelain portion fused to the metal beneath, you’ll never have to worry about separation or breakage of your dental crown, and you may even get longer lasting results than you would with a crown that’s only made from porcelain.

Putting Your Crown In Place

If you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Burghardt and decided that a dental crown is right for you, then you’ll go through the following process:

  • The site where the dental crown will be placed will be reshaped after you’ve received anesthesia. This could involve some shaving or removal of dental tissue, so the crown can be comfortably inserted without crowding other teeth. If necessary, South Shore dentist Dr. Burghardt will also build the strength of your tooth’s structure so that it can support the dental crown without any possibility of breakage.
  • An impression will be taken of the tooth, which will then be sent to a certified dental laboratory. This, along with 3D imaging information, will be the basis of your dental crown’s final shape. Photos will also help the lab create the most accurate coloration for the cap in order to match your natural teeth. Until your permanent crown has been completed, Dr. Burghardt will supply you with a temporary dental crown.
  • When your permanent dental crown has been finished and sent to our Marshfield dental office, we’ll remove the temporary crown and then test fit the permanent cap. If everything is comfortable and looks right, then we will bond the crown into place; otherwise, we make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the crown is a perfect fit.
