We Really enjoy replacing broken and discolored teeth with crowns. It is a game changer for so many people to regain their confidence to be able to smile again and it also helps with chewing function which can help with overall systemic health especially with gastrointestinal problems. Improper chewing of food or lack of chewing ability can cause many health problems and we have had many patients come back and mention how much better they feel once they can start chewing again. Many times this can alleviate TMJ problems that come from their jaws closing too far because the teeth have been worn down too far as seen in some of the photos below.
We can do single tooth crowns for a cracked tooth or a tooth that has too much decay or we can do all the teeth depending on what you need.
Some things to remember are that even though the teeth are covered with Zirconia the tooth structure at the base of the crown next to the gum line can get decay. It is very important to brush your teeth regularly Especially around the gum line. People who take medications can get dry mouth. Dry mouth speeds up tooth decay very quickly. The saliva dilutes bacteria and acids which cause tooth decay. So people who have crowns and dry mouth are very susceptible to decay at the gum line below the crown.
