Instead of metal, our fillings are made using composite resin, a material that can be perfectly shaded to blend in with the surrounding enamel. This results in a restoration that can’t be seen whenever a patient smiles or takes a bite of food. And, the resin is able to fill smaller spaces compared to traditional metal, so more healthy enamel can be preserved during placement, leading to a stronger, longer-lasting repair.
Crowns are protective custom-made caps that are placed directly over the natural tooth structure. In years past, crowns were only made up of metal, silver, or gold. As dentistry has advanced, more aesthetically pleasing crowns have been introduced. Crowns are now often made up of a combination of porcelain and metal, providing the look of a natural tooth and the strength and durability of a metal crown. At All Smiles Leesburg, our crowns are typically fabricated using Fulfill Z Zirconia. Benefits of zirconia crowns include:
- Close imitation of a natural tooth
- Strength and durability of a metal crown
- Stain resistance
- Hypoallergenic properties
- Optimal natural tooth preservation
- Resistant to extreme temperature fluctuations
All Smiles Leesburg is also proud to offer E-MAX crowns. E-MAX crowns are completely made of ceramic material to provide an exceptionally natural look and feel. Because E-MAX crowns are thinner and lighter, they require less preparation to be done to the natural tooth. The absence of metal in the crown ensures that there is no visible metal line near the gum line, and there is no chance of allergic reaction.
How Are Dental Crowns Placed?
Crowns are typically placed over teeth that have had extensive restorative work done, such as a large filling or a root canal. A crown may also be used as a restorative solution for a chipped or broken tooth. After the restorative work has been completed, the tooth is shaved down around on all sides to make room for the crown. Here at All Smiles Leesburg, a set of modern digital impressions is taken, and a temporary crown is inserted into the mouth while the permanent crown is fabricated using the impressions. The patient returns to the dental office in about a week or two to have the permanent crown cemented into place. The crown then looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
