A dental crown is a tooth-like cap placed onto the surface of a tooth. They are meant to improve look and shape, and also strengthen damaged teeth. Various materials like porcelain and ceramic are used to create a cap that matches the color and appearance of your teeth. Dr. Tina pairs up with a local lab to create the best crowns in the greater Colonia area.
Why do I need a dental crown?
When you have weak or damaged teeth, your entire mouth can become compromised. Not only do crowns fix your teeth and prevent any additional damage or pain, they improve the overall the look and feel of your smile.
Dental Crowns are an alternative to implants or partial dentures. Crowns can be fastened to a strong and healthy tooth to provide a noninvasive way to support a dental bridge.
If you have one or more missing teeth your mouth might not be functioning properly and chewing may be difficult.
Missing teeth can allow other teeth to move into the vacant space. This may cause pain by placing more stress on your jaw joints and teeth and sometimes cause the teeth to fracture due to overuse. These teeth that have moved are now more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay since it is more difficult to properly clean them.
Whether some or all of your natural teeth are missing, Dr. Tina Panchal may be able to restore the functionality of your mouth and aesthetics of your smile with dentures.
Since her office is conveniently located in Colonia, NJ, you don’t have to go far to get great professional denture service.
A denture is synthetic teeth attached to a plastic base that has been made to match your natural teeth and gums.
Besides making your smile look better, dentures also fix the way your mouth functions overall. Dentures also support your cheeks and lips to reduce sagging of the muscles in your fac
Conventional complete dentures consist of an upper denture and a lower denture.
The upper denture is made to replace all of your teeth in your upper jaw. It covers the roof of your mouth and fits securely on your upper gums and palate.
The lower denture is made to take the place of all your teeth in your lower jaw. It sits on the lower gums and stays in place with the help of your tongue, saliva, and cheek muscles.
Your mouth must be clear of all natural teeth before conventional complete dentures are placed. If some of your teeth need to be removed, the dentures will be placed once your gums have healed.
Like your natural teeth, your dentures need to be cleaned well.
Remove them from your mouth and rinse with cool water to remove loose food particles. Use a denture brush or soft bristled toothbrush with denture cleanser to clean them. Once you have finished cleaning your dentures, rinse them thoroughly.
You should continue to clean all parts of the inside of your mouth daily as well. Brushing your palate, tongue, and gums every morning with a soft brush increases the circulation in your tissue and helps get rid of plaque.
When teeth are missing, there are many different ways to help your mouth function optimally and look great. Making an appointment with a dentist is the best way to determine what type of treatment is best for you.
