CERAMIC CROWNS/ BRIDGES
Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, from whitening and shaping to closing spaces and replacing teeth. Dentists have a wide array of tools and techniques at their disposal for improving the look of your smile.

We all know the characteristics of a traditionally beautiful smile: straight, white, symmetrical teeth. Fortunately, EMCAS Aesthetic Dentistry can fix the foundation of your smile with a ceramic crown or ceramic bridge.
 
 
If a tooth is decayed or badly broken, a strong, durable crown can withstand the forces of biting,  chewing, and tooth clenching and grinding. Ceramic dental crowns are a common method of restoring teeth in a variety of circumstances. A dental crown (tooth cap) is a full shell that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
BENEFITS
 
A ceramic crown/bridge is good to:
 
 Protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
 Restore an already broken tooth, a tooth that has been severely worn down 
 Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left, or a tooth that's had a root canal procedure
 Hold a dental bridge in place
 Cover mis-shapened or severely discolored teeth
 Cover a dental implant
 Make a cosmetic modification
 
If you are considering a dental crown, it will need to be determined if you need a root canal treatment first prior to having the crown placed. Dental crowns can be completed in one trip only with 2-3 visits to the dentist.
 
DENTAL CROWNS OR VENEERS?
 
Veneers and crowns, typically made of porcelain are both dental restorative techniques. Both are effective in terms of improving the tooth’s aesthetic appearance. Veneers and ceramic crowns can be designed the way you want it. Bigger, better and whiter!
 

 
The main difference between the two methods is how much of your original tooth gets pulled out, the thickness of the material used in covering your tooth, and also how much of your tooth gets covered.
 
Crowns are designed to cup-over and also encase your entire tooth and are therefore a good way of rebuilding the tooth. Because of the nature of the special materials used in the fabrication, these type of restorations are often used to improve and strengthen the appearance of a patient’s teeth. Veneers, in contrast, are basically a sliver of dental restorative that is bonded onto the tooth’s front side solely for cosmetic enhancements. This may be color improvements or minor shape adjustments.

Almost anyone can be a candidate for dental crowns. Crowns will give back your ability to chew and bite the way you should, and they will also improve your appearance. Dental damage like broken teeth, severe decay requiring root canal treatment, or large cracks or fractures can generally only be treated with dental crowns or implants. So, if you have any of these things going on in your mouth, then you are definitely a candidate for dental crowns.
 
 

There are several factors which contribute to a person being a good candidate for a dental bridge, these include:
- Missing one or more permanent teeth
- Having teeth that support the bridge which are in good shape and have strong bone structure
- Being in overall in good health (no severe health conditions, infections or other health problems)
- Performing good oral hygiene (to maintain the condition of the dental bridge).
 
 
 
 
 
It typically takes a dentist 3 separate appointments to make and place a new dental crown for a patient.
 
The first appointment involves:
1) Preparing (shaping) the tooth, root canal (if required)
2) Taking its impression 
3) Placing a temporary crown: In those cases where your dental crown will be fabricated at a dental laboratory, you will have to wait while it is being made. During this time period, you'll wear a "temporary" crown
 
 
During the time period between the two appointments, a dental laboratory will fabricate the crown. The lab will then design and fabricate the patient's crown and ship it back to the dentist's office. 3 days or so are usually allotted for this process.
When you return for your second visit, the dentist will evaluate the fit of the crown and then cement it into place. This step can usually be completed in about 30-45 minutes or so.
Your dentist will then make any needed final adjustments on the third visit.
Care instructions for dental crowns vary slightly depending on whether you have a bridge, temporary or permanent one in your mouth.
 
 
Temporary crowns are only worn for a few days until the permanent crown is made and applied. At home, you need to be extra careful with temporary crowns, avoid chewing on anything hard, like ice or hard candy. Your gums and the tooth that holds the crown, as well as surrounding teeth may be a bit sore or tender, so stick to a diet of softer foods until you feel more comfortable.
 
Permanent dental crowns typically last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, and this lifespan largely weighs on how good your oral habits are. Once your numbness has worn off, and for the next day or so, gently test the "bite" of your crown so to make sure that it feels right with all types of closing movements. If it doesn't, let your dentist know so they can correct the problem. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day, while paying special attention to the area where gum meets tooth is recommended. Refrain from grinding teeth, biting nails, chewing ice and using your teeth to open packaging, as they can potentially lead to a loose crown. It’s advisable to eat soft foods until you become accustomed to the dental crowns/bridge. Later, eating a diet high in fruit, vegetables and fiber, instead of a diet rich in meat, provides good oral (and general) health.
 
Bridges should be cared for about the same as with a crown. Especially since you’ll have crowns on either side of the bridge, to support it. Once more, when it’s a temporary bridge, it can become loose very easily. Take extra care to softly brush and floss. In a week your permanent bridge will be cemented in. Then you still want to be reasonably gentle, but you won’t have to be so concerned that the bridge will be loosened.
