What Can Crowns Do?
Serious problems can usually be corrected using crown and bridgework. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious oral health conditions. Where accidental trauma has occurred, teeth have broken away through excessive bruxing, or in the breakdown of old restorations. Crowns, dentures, and bridges can always be used as a long-term solution.
Many suffer irradiating nerve pain from posterior teeth that have fillings with hairline pits and fissures on the occlusal (masticating) surface. This instantly activates nerve receptors of the pulp tissue. Covering these teeth with a crown relieves the pain and allows the return of full dental function. For incisor teeth, older fillings can weaken and cause appearance problems due to deep stains or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not, although implants are preferable. In teeth with root canals, crowns can prevent breakage.
Sometimes teeth crack or break due to normal wear and tear. A serious disorder called bruxism can enhance this. No matter the case, there is always a solution!
