More About Dental Crowns in Morrisville, NC 

Dental crowns repair damaged or broken teeth and restore the appearance of the teeth. While crowns are used for cosmetic dentistry, these fittings are also an essential part of dental restoration procedures. When a Smile Forever Family Dentistry practitioner completes a root canal, the final step is fitting a crown over the repaired tooth to protect it during the healing process. 

Crowns are part of dental bridges that restore a missing tooth or teeth and balance the mouth and bite. Dental crowns are also an essential element of dental implant restoration. A metal tooth-root is implanted into the jawbone, and the dentist screws a tooth crown onto it to strengthen and restore the tooth. 

Types Of Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns are porcelain and ceramic or porcelain fused to metal (a PFM crown). PFM crowns have a metal core with porcelain baked onto the outside of it. Dental labs make crowns, and it may require several visits to the dentist’s office to complete the tooth restoration. 

Patients with metal allergies should consider a porcelain crown because porcelain-only crowns are metal-free, stain-resistant, and look like natural teeth. If you don’t have any metal allergies, PFM crowns are stronger and long-lasting. They are an excellent choice for the front teeth that need biting strength and aesthetic appeal. 

Dental Implant Restorations 

Dental implant restoration permanently replaces missing natural teeth. Our dentist implants a titanium post into the jawbone. It fuses over time and becomes the artificial “root” of any new tooth implant. The practitioner then places a dental crown over it to finish the job. 

Dental implants have three parts: 

  • The implant is the titanium screw (root) implanted in the jawbone 

  • The abutment inserts into the screw and holds the implant and the dental crown together 

  • The dental crown is the only visible portion on top 

 

Dental implants may replace a single tooth or multiple teeth throughout the mouth. When replacing multiple teeth, individual implants don’t work. Instead, dental implants occupy certain spots to hold fixed bridges in place—the method reduces the costs and extensive surgery required for individual implants for multiple teeth.
