Traditional dental crowns are tooth-colored caps that fit over the surface of a tooth, while implant-supported crowns attach to artificial tooth roots and replace missing permanent teeth.
Both types of crowns can improve the function and appearance of your teeth and smile while reducing the risk of future oral health problems.
The many benefits you can expect from receiving dental crowns include teeth that are:
The process of getting traditional crowns is simple and painless, but it can give you dramatic cosmetic results.
Implant-supported crowns require a period of healing after placement of the dental implant before you can receive custom-fitted artificial teeth.
To find out if you’re a candidate for traditional or implant-supported dental crowns, Dr. Zeines examines your teeth and gums, reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays if needed, and uses kinesiological testing and tongue assessments as a natural means of evaluation.
Dr. Zeines personalizes restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to give you the best outcome.
During crown placement, Dr. Zeines removes any tooth decay and cleans your tooth. He might place a filling on the tooth or complete a root canal prior to digitally scanning it and sending the information to a dental lab.
During dental implant placement, Dr. Zeines numbs the treatment area and inserts a titanium post into your jawbone. After a period of healing, he places a connector post (abutment) on the implant and digitally scans your mouth.
When your new crown is ready, Dr. Zeines bonds it over the top of your natural tooth or, with a dental implant, attaches it to the abutment. He ensures it fits comfortably and securely before sending you home.
Take good care of your new dental crown by not chewing on ice or other hard objects, brushing your teeth after meals, and flossing daily. See Dr. Zeines every six months for dental exams and cleanings and call his office if your crown gets damaged, becomes loose, or falls off.
