Dental CrownsWhat your dentist in Lancaster wants you to know about dental crowns

If your smile is breaking down due to damaged teeth or large, old, crumbly fillings, it’s time to think about restoring your smile. The answer is dental crowns! So, what are dental crowns? Dr. Roland Markarian at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA, wants to share what you should know about dental crowns and how they can help your smile.

Dental crowns work differently than other dental restorations. That’s because dental crowns cover the entire visible part of your tooth above the gumline. This overall treatment provides protection against tooth breakage. When you bite down or chew, your teeth are subjected to considerable stress and pressure, which can cause them to break. Dental crowns spread the stress and pressure evenly across the entire surfaces of your teeth, reducing the possibility of breakage.

Dental fillings are a commonly used restorative treatment, but they don’t provide the same protection against breakage. That’s because a filling will actually divide your tooth into sections, sometimes weakening the tooth structure. There is a possibility of breakage when you bite or chew.

Dental crowns can strengthen your smile, and they can also improve the appearance of your smile. That’s because dental crowns are made of materials like porcelain, which mimic the look of tooth enamel. Porcelain is translucent, meaning it reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel. Porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, so they blend into your smile.

At Golden Dental, Dr. Markarian uses state-of-the-art Computer-assisted-design/Computer-assisted-measurement technology known as CAD/CAM. This technology allows you to have a dental crown created and placed all in the same day. Using precise measurements and dimensions, your new crown can be created right in the office, while you wait! Imagine having your tooth prepared, the crown created, and the crown placed all in the same appointment!

Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, you no longer have to wait for your crown to come back from the dental laboratory, while you wear an unsightly, uncomfortable temporary crown. Your crown will look great and fit perfectly, the first time, every time.

If you need to restore the function and appearance of your smile, it’s time to consider dental crowns. For more information about dental crowns and other restorative, cosmetic, or preventive dental services call Dr. Markarian at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA. Call today!
