Aloha Dental Laboratory Explains How Crowns Can Improve Your Smile, Ewa, Hawaii

Crowns not only improve the appearance of your teeth, but they also strengthen fragile teeth as well. Aloha Dental Laboratory in Aiea, HI, uses digital dentistry to create dentures, crowns, bridges, and other types of dental work. Here they'd like to explain the different ways that you can benefit from a crown.

Crowns completely cover your teeth, providing stability and hiding imperfections. They’re made of durable materials, such as porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, resin, and gold. Your dentist may recommend a crown if you have any of these problems:

  • crowns-aiea-hiA Weakened Tooth: Cracks or chips weaken a tooth and make it prone to breaking if it isn’t stabilized with a crown.
  • A Broken Tooth: A dental crown will help ensure that further damage doesn’t happen to a broken tooth.
  • Large Fillings: Large fillings can also weaken teeth.
  • Discolored Or Oddly Shaped Teeth: Crowns may be used to hide any cosmetic problems you might have.

If your dentist suggests a crown, he or she will make an impression of your tooth. The Aloha Dental Laboratory technicians use the impression to create a crown that fits your mouth perfectly. During your visit, your dentist will file your teeth slightly to ensure that there’s enough room for your crown. You’ll be given a temporary crown to wear until your permanent one is ready in one or two weeks.

When the crown from Aloha Dental Laboratory is finished, you’ll return for your next appointment. Your dentist will check the fit and make adjustments if necessary before permanently attaching the crown with dental cement. Caring for a crown is simple: Just floss and brush as you normally do.

Call the expert team at Aloha Dental Laboratory if you’re ready to improve your oral health with a crown or other types of dental work, such as custom dentures or teeth whitening. They offer excellent service and payment plans that make it easy to afford their services. Call them at (808) 947-2877 for more information or visit them online.
