A dental crown is a custom-made tooth cap—often used to cover the top and sides of a damaged tooth. Crowns protect and strengthen teeth, but we can also use them to replace a tooth or cosmetically improve a tooth.

Your tooth will look as good as new, and it will blend in naturally with your other teeth. Contact Valley Dental Solutions now if you have tooth pain, a damaged tooth, or missing teeth.

PORCELAIN CROWNS

We offer classic porcelain as an excellent material for tooth crowns. Porcelain is used by many dental practices because:

  • It is strong.
  • It can last for many years.
  • It reflects light just like natural tooth material.

Porcelain has been used for many years because it looks so natural, has great strength, and is easy to shape and color.

ZIRCONIA CROWNS

Zirconia crowns may be new to you, but they’re becoming more popular with dentists. That’s because zirconia offers these advantages:

  • Durability: Zirconia is a very strong material. It can stand up to the great forces of chewing.
  • Short Preparation: It requires less preparation of the tooth before a crown can be placed.
  • Long-Lasting: It can last a long time—as long as a crown based on metal, but without the health risks of a mercury metal amalgam crown.
  • Safety: It’s biocompatible, which means that human bodies usually don’t react badly to it, unlike the crowns of the past.
  • Fewer Appointments: Zirconia crowns are simple for our team to create in our office, so you can receive your crown right away.
  • Strength: Zirconia crowns are made from a single block of material, giving them added strength.

WHEN DO YOU NEED A DENTAL CROWN?

We often recommend a dental crown for patients with these needs:

  • Cracked or Chipped Teeth: The crown covers the damage and prevents further cracking or bacterial infection.
  • Tooth Decay: When a tooth is damaged by decay, the walls are weakened. A crown reinforces the tooth, which can give it many more years of use.
  • Cosmetic Problems: A crown can give a new shape and color to a tooth that looks out-of-place.
  • A Lost Tooth: A custom dental crown can replace a tooth. We can attach it to a dental implant or put it in a dental bridge.
  • Weak or Worn Tooth: For a tooth that is worn down and weakened, a crown creates a new chewing surface and protects it from further damage.
  • A Major Cavity: If a dental cavity is large enough, it can endanger the tooth. A crown reinforces the structure of a tooth after a cavity treatment.
  • A Failed Filling: If an old tooth filling wears out, a crown could replace the filling and protect the tooth.
  • Root Canals: After a root canal treatment to clean out an infection, a crown creates a secure barrier against bacteria getting inside the tooth again.

Dr. Diquattro, Dr. Allen, and Dr. Tam are experienced in placing dental crowns, both porcelain and zirconia. They engage in continued education often to ensure that you receive the highest level of care—and the latest techniques and technology.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING YOUR EXAM AND CLEANIN

1

Detailed Dental Imaging

Digital x-rays are the preferred method of taking x-rays in today’s world. The digital x-rays are:
  • Safer | Digital x-rays use 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. They are safe for everyone, even those who are pregnant.
  • Immediate | X-rays make for a quick diagnosis that can give you answers and present solutions faster than ever.
  • Precise | We can also zoom in on the image to get a clearer, more precise view of any problem areas.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Harmful bacteria tend to gather in hard-to-reach places on your teeth. A professional cleaning gets deep into all the spaces to help remove plaque. Your teeth will be carefully cleaned as we clear away mineral buildup along the edges of your gums.
We’ll finish off your professional cleaning by polishing your teeth. This leaves the surfaces of your teeth smooth and feeling the ultimate clean!
These cleanings are extremely important. If plaque and tartar are allowed to stay, they can cause serious problems including tooth decay and gum disease.

Examining Your Teeth and Gums

After the hygienist makes your teeth shine, one of our dentists will step in and give your mouth a comprehensive exam.
When we examine your mouth, we don’t just check for cavities. We also look for any early signs of oral cancer or symptoms of gum disease. This process is one of the most effective things we can do to protect your oral health from oral issues.
We can also use the information from your exam to predict future problems you’ll have. This way we can take steps to prevent those issues or prepare to meet them as necessary.

Recommendations

After your appointment, we’ll discuss your overall oral health and what next steps might be best for you.

Our general recommendations for good oral health include:
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day.
  • Flossing at least once a day.
  • Avoiding biting on hard objects like ice cubes or pencil ends.
  • Using a mouthwash with fluoride.
We want you to have a beautiful and healthy smile and that means giving you all the tools you need to be successful including tailored advice for your mouth and health.

WHAT IS THE BEST ROUTINE FOR GOOD ORAL HEALTH?

General dentistry is all about preventing oral issues that can be painful, debilitating, and expensive to treat. While Valley Dental Solutions can do a lot to help with that, so can you! Setting a daily routine for yourself can make a big difference.

Just like you need to wash your hair regularly, your mouth needs personal hygiene too. You’ll want to make sure you’re keeping it clear of bacteria as much as possible.

Brush

Brush twice a day, first thing in the morning and before bed. This gets rid of all the bacteria that develop while you sleep and the food remnants from your meals during the day. Make sure to get all of the surfaces of your teeth, and don’t forget to brush your tongue!

Floss

Floss at least once a day at bedtime. This helps you get all the food out of the cracks between your teeth so bacteria doesn’t have any leftovers to snack on while you’re sleeping. Flossing is one of the best things you can do to prevent gum disease.

Rinse

Rinse with mouthwash. After flossing, food and plaque debris can still be floating around your mouth. Rinsing with mouthwash can wash out those particles and leave your mouth clean and fresh. Many mouthwashes strengthen and protect your teeth against harmful bacteria.

Dental Exams And Professional Cleanings

Visit our office every six months. While brushing and flossing at home are both helpful and necessary for good oral health, only a deeper cleaning can continue to get rid of tartar and plaque. We also polish your teeth after a cleaning so they shine and feel smooth.

DO YOU HAVE OTHER DENTAL CONCERNS?

Visiting a dentist every six months is important for your oral health, but sometimes dental concerns arise between visits. Below are other concerns that should be examined and diagnosed by a dentist.

Red, Tender, Swollen, or Receding Gums

Many of these symptoms point to gum disease, a common yet serious issue that needs to be addressed quickly. There are regenerative gum disease treatments that can bring back your oral health.

Ongoing Toothache

Persistent achy teeth can signify a tooth infection. Regenerative root canal therapy can remove the infected tissue from inside a tooth with advanced technology and provide relief for toothaches.

Loose Permanent Teeth

Only baby teeth should fall out. If you start to notice that a permanent tooth has come loose, that is a dental concern. Dentists can diagnose and treat underlying issues and possibly save your tooth.

Unusual Tooth Sensitivity

It’s normal to feel some sensitivity to extremely hot or cold foods, but if this sensation becomes extremely painful or occurs frequently, there may be an underlying issue like a cavity or infection.

Jaw Pain

Some headaches and jaw aches are due to nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism) or issues with the TMJ. The temporomandibular joint is susceptible to injury, but many TMJ disorders are easily treated.

Persistent Mouth Sores

Mouth sores that keep returning or won’t go away could be a symptom of allergies, disease, or even cancer. Getting these sores looked at by a dentist can get you treatment and peace of mind.

Dry Mouth

Saliva is important to keeping your mouth clean and helping you break down food. You may experience dry mouth if you sleep with your mouth open or if you have issues with your saliva glands.

Persistent Bad Breath

Chronic bad breath can be caused by:

  • Improper dental hygiene.
  • Eating a diet poor in nutrients.
  • Dry mouth, often from sleep apnea.
  • Gingivitis or advanced gum disease.
  • Liver or kidney infections or diseases.

Pregnancy

Taking care of your teeth during pregnancy is an essential part of good oral health. Your hormone levels change drastically and can put you at risk for gum disease, halitosis, and other issues.
