Dental Crowns


Rendering of jaw with dental crownWe aren’t sure how many people know this, but crowns have been around for thousands of years. Not the crowns that people wear on the tops of their heads, but the crowns that people wear in their mouths. Crowns are truly a wonder of humanity. They have been used in dental practice for over 4000 years. Crowns were first used in the Philippines, when natives used gold to make tooth covers. They wanted a way to enhance their looks to feel beautiful. Dentists began to use modern crowns by the late 19th century. A dentist decided to use porcelain to make a cap for one of his patients. The patient had a tooth with advanced tooth decay. After the dentist fitted the porcelain cap on his patient’s tooth, other patients came forward and wanted crowns for their teeth as well. Do you have a tooth that needs protecting? Let BayView Dental take a minute to talk to you about crowns.

Do I Need a Crown?


There are several reasons you might need a crown. You may need a crown if you break a tooth. Sometimes, adults who are in midlife break one of their teeth on food. It sounds silly, but if you were a child in the 1970s and 1980s, fillings were made larger then to fill cavities. Dentists believed back then that the more tooth you drilled out, the better for your tooth. Now we know better. We know that when you drill out a tooth, the larger the filling, the weaker the tooth. When a tooth is weak, it can break easily. Also, large fillings can become loose as they age. As fillings become loose, cavities can form around the filling, causing the tooth to weaken further.

You might need a crown if one of your teeth has a lot of tooth decay. Over time, little cavities can become big ones. If they are not treated, an infection in your tooth can reach your tooth pulp and the nerves- which is very painful. We can help you get rid of your tooth decay, but we may need to crown your tooth to protect it from further decay. This also helps your tooth stay strong.

You might also need a crown if you injure a tooth. You may have gotten hit in the mouth when you are playing a sport. It could injure one of your teeth, and that tooth could become weaker. Crowning the tooth protects it from further damage. You also might have a tooth that has been discolored from an illness or medication. If we crown that tooth, it would be the same color as the rest of your teeth.

How Can I Get A Crown?


It is easy for us to place a crown on your tooth. We first make an impression of your tooth so that we can match it. We may need to put a temporary crown to make sure your tooth is protected. When your crown is all set, we shave your tooth down a little, and then cement the crown onto your tooth. That’s all there is to it. Are you ready for a new tooth? Give BayView Dental a call at one of our 7 convenient locations now.
