Priti Naik, DDS Has You Covered
At Priti Naik DDS, Dental Crowns are a customized new surface for your tooth, preserving the original structure of your tooth and giving you a happy and healthy smile. Having cracked, broken or worn teeth can be distressing, and many people feel like they are alone in having toothaches.
By the age of 35 in the U.S. 60% of people have lost a permanent tooth, surprising, right? Many people aren’t educated about the viable options and solutions to make them smile bigger, and enjoy the food or drink they want.
Causes for a Crown
Whether caused by time, or hygiene, or genetics you can be in need of a crown for a lot of reasons. Some of the most common causes the team see in the office are;
- have a cavity too large for a filling or basic restorative dentistry
- have a tooth cracked, or damaged significantly
- need to cover a dental implant or build a bridge
- need to cover a root canal procedure
- or just want a new cosmetic look to a discolored tooth
Crowns return structure to your teeth along with strengthening them, sealing cracks, and restoring your tooth to stronger than it has been for years.
A Natural Look and Feel
Our crowns are customized in Vienna based on molds and digital x-rays taken of your mouth. After shipping your molds and X-rays to a local dental laboratory, we combine our efforts to create a crown that matches the color, width, height, and shape of your tooth to create a perfect crown for you. Until the permanent crown is created, a temporary crown is placed and sealed over the old surface of your natural tooth. To make sure the surface is accommodating for both the temporary and permanent crown, Dr. Naik will shape your tooth with little to no pain. The entire process takes a few very short appointments.
Durability and Resilience of a Crown
The team at Priti Naik DDS takes pride in the effort, action, and final product of our crowns. They only use precious metals, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, or all-porcelain (ceramic) crowns. The team highly recommends investing in all-ceramic crowns. An average crown lasts around 5 to 8 years, yet in some cases with an all porcelain crown, proper care and placement a crown can last 10+ years. Care for crowns once they are placed is simple, brush around the gumline, and floss all your teeth as usual.
