When do you need new crowns & dental veneers?
When do you need new crowns & dental veneers? When a tooth is so broken that it cannot be repaired with fillings,
the dentist can grind the tooth and make a new crown or dental veneer.
It is an artificial part of a tooth that covers most of the tooth. The crown replaces the entire chewing surface of the tooth and other visible parts of the tooth.
A crown consists of ceramic and sometimes the crown needs to be supported under the visible porcelain with a stronger material such as zirconium.
Dental crowns and dental veneers are stylish and well-functioning replacements for teeth that have been damaged or when you want to improve the appearance of a tooth.
Our skilled dental technicians recreate the teeth – just as they should look.
There are several different types of dental crowns, of course, we are careful to choose one that suits you and your tooth perfectly.
We make dental crowns in one day
Since we have our own technician, we can with a little planning make sure that you get your new dental crowns in one day.
Book a consultation and we will look at what the conditions look like for you and find a solution.
What are shell facades & crowns?
A dental crown is the visible part of the tooth, ie that which is above the gum line.
When you make a crown, you create space for an artificial tooth by shaping the part of the tooth that is to be crowned.
Crowns are usually made when the tooth is damaged and when you want a sustainable treatment.
A treatment with shell veneers (or porcelain veneers) means that a thin, natural shell of ceramic is attached to the surface of the teeth to make the tooth surface smooth and fine.
The facade changes the appearance of the teeth permanently as the porcelain shell gives the teeth a new surface layer.
Treatment begins with us taking photos and impressions of your teeth that give you a good picture of the result before the treatment begins and the shell veneers are in place.
Treatment with porcelain veneers is relatively extensive and should therefore be performed by an experienced dentist.
How long do shell & porcelain facades last?
Shell facades and porcelain facades are durable and in many cases last a lifetime.
Of course, there are no guarantees for how long a facade lasts,
but you can extend its life with the help of a brace and by being aware of what you eat, avoiding tobacco,
and thinking a little extra about what you eat and how you care for your porcelain facades.
At Södertandläkarna, you get a 3-year guarantee on your kronor.
Facade of one or more teeth?
After a consultation with one of our qualified dentists, you decide, according to your situation and your conditions,
how you want to proceed. It is of course possible to provide only one tooth with a shell veneer (porcelain veneer),
but usually two to six teeth, in the upper jaw, for example, are repaired at a time.
Dental crown even if there is nothing wrong with the teeth?
Of course, you know best how you experience the appearance of your teeth.
What you think is unacceptable can be completely normal for another person.
If you think that your teeth are so ugly that it affects your life situation, it may be time for a change with the help of one or more dental crowns or dental veneers.
So there does not have to be anything wrong with a tooth for you to want to change the look.
Sometimes a small operation is enough to get good results, in other cases a larger operation is required.
Such as replacing a tooth with implants.
We always have a discussion with our patients and are careful to give the right expectations for treatment and results.
And we never perform treatments that go against our beliefs about what is best for our health or that are contrary to experience and documented science about oral health. Again,
we would never expose you to something we could not expose ourselves to. Or even more clearly. Our loved ones.
Dental crowns, dental veneers & shell veneers
Getting a crown or dental veneer in place often requires several visits to the dentist.
The first thing we do is a scan or take a digital impression of the tooth to be able to make a model.
You and the dentist discuss the color of the surface layer together and then the impression is sent on to a dental technician who manufactures the crown or dental veneer.
The materials in our dental crowns, dental veneers, shell veneers, and porcelain veneers are of the absolute highest available quality.
The materials we use are completely ceramic and usually consist of Dilithium Silicate (DLS); a glass-ceramic with high strength and which is bonded to the tooth.
This makes the joint between the crown and the tooth almost invisible and difficult for bacteria to attach to.
The material is available in a number of shades and is also multicolored.
Another material we use is zirconium or actually zirconium dioxide which is an all-ceramic basic material that is tissue-friendly and durable.
The difference between DLS and zirconium is the fastening process and you can make constructions in DLS smaller, for example, facades and parts of teeth.
When we make constructions in zirconia, it is often whole kronor or several kronor that sit together.
What we call bridges or bridges. Your dental technician with us at Södertandläkarna ensures that the color, shape, and finish are as perfect and good a match for you (and just your teeth) as possible.
This is how you keep clean
An artificial tooth veneer or crown does not protect the teeth from cavities or tooth loss.
Bacterial deposits can form between the artificial surface and the tooth itself. If you have crowns in your mouth, it is good to go to a dental hygienist regularly.
The dentist and dental hygienist can tell you how to best take care of oral hygiene.
To strengthen the remaining parts of the tooth and reduce the risk of caries, use a good, soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
You may also need extra fluorides, such as tablets, chewing gum, or mouthwash.
Electric toothbrushes, extra small toothbrushes, and dental floss are good aids to access everywhere and keep your teeth clean.
