An artificial restoration of broken or damaged teeth that fits neatly over the existing teeth to strengthen it return it to its full function.
ARTIFICIAL TOOTH RESTORATION
When a tooth is damaged by a large cavity, chipped or it threatens the health of the entire tooth, your dentist might recommend a crown. Crowns, also known as dental caps, make use of the original base structure of the tooth, or screws, to anchor and secure an artificial cap that looks exactly like the original tooth. Once the crown is placed and bonded to the base structure with dental cement it will also act and feel like a natural tooth.
Many people require this procedure to protect what’s left of a tooth after a root filling and it is also useful to hold a bridge or denture in place for some patients. It is also a common procedure for those who want to replace old, ugly fillings with a proper functioning and aesthetically pleasing solution. At Eidelweiss Dentistry we make use of breakthrough materials and technology to create strong, lasting and durable crowns that will fit and function perfectly with the rest of your teeth.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A variety of materials are used in the market for the creation of crowns. Edelweiss Crowns are used during our crown procedures, and they are laser-sintered, pre-polymerized, highly filled enamel shells made of nano-hybrid composite. They look like ceramic without the brittleness of it and their optical properties and flexibility will make them look and function like normal teeth.
With the use of advanced technology, the crown is laser-cut out of CAD/CAM Blocks, which are made of the high-grade technologically advanced material. The technology allows the crown to look like porcelain while they are stronger and more flexible to behave and act like a real tooth.
To create a strong base for the cap to fit on, the dentist will remove most of the existing damaged tooth’s outer area. The stronger inner core of the tooth will be kept, and an impression will be made to ensure the new crown fits like a puzzle on top of the inner core. The impressions, colour shade and other information will be used by the technician to laser-cut the crown to perfection.
You’ll require two visits. The first one will prepare the broken tooth for impression and ensure the imprint allows the perfect fitting for the crown. The next session will be to cement the created crown onto the tooth base. While you wait for the crown to be created the dentist will place a temporary cap on.
