While an accident can make you lose a tooth, other oral problems like tooth decay, cracks and large fillings can damage your teeth. Getting wisdom tooth extraction can also leave an unwanted gap in your mouth. These can not only disturb the aesthetics of your mouth but can weaken the roots as well. Dental crowns can save your damaged and chipped tooth from affecting other teeth. There are various types of dental crowns that Triton Dental offers, like same day crowns, implant crowns, gold crowns and ceramic crowns. We can discuss their pros and cons with you, allowing you to make an informed decision.
You can now get dental crowning done in a single sitting. With the help of an intraoral camera and computer-aided 3-D camera, the image of your damaged tooth is taken. Using a CEREC or GLIDEWELL IO machine, a dental crown is prepared which is then bonded with your damaged tooth. Everything can be done within a week.
Less time consuming
Great for emergency fixes
Fewer injections required
Might not suit everyone
Crowns are very common and are not only used to restore structural integrity, but they are also used to restore a tooth’s proper functionality and even aesthetic appeal. This is because a crown covers a very large portion of the tooth, blending in with the rest of your teeth. They are used when large portions of a tooth are missing due to untreated dental cavities, root canal or trauma that resulted in fractures or cracks. This form of restoration is custom and completed within two visits. Ceramic crowns look very natural, restoring your original smile.
Wide range of colour matrix
Sit perfectly on the damaged tooth
Can be fragile
Possible only if the original tooth is strong
Can increase tooth sensitivity
Gold crowns are not only used to restore and increase structural integrity, but they are also used to restore functionality. This is because crowns cover large areas of a tooth that are missing due to untreated dental cavities, root canal or trauma that resulted in fractures or cracks. This form of restoration is custom and completed within two visits. Gold is a biocompatible material and is a great option for posterior teeth in the non-aesthetic region of the mouth.
Offer strength and durability
Require minimal tooth removal
Can cause redness and swelling
Some people can be allergic to gold alloy
Can cause lip and mouth pain
Least natural looking
Implants are essentially titanium screws that are placed in the upper or lower jaw bone. These can be extremely beneficial in certain cases because they act as tooth roots. Because of this, they can even prevent bone loss that results from missing teeth. Implants can be placed for single crowns, bridges and/or dentures. They also provide a wide range of tooth replacement options such as single tooth replacement, multiple tooth replacement, partial/complete dentures or a full arch fixed replacement.
