What are dental crowns?

The history of dental crowns has come a long way from a couple thousands of years when tooth caps made of gold and with clasps were used to replace broken teeth. The technology has certainly improved since then and with the rise of the use of porcelain dentures in the 1700s made way for finding better ways to replace or fix missing teeth. By 1903, the first porcelain dental crown like we know of was used. Since then, dental crowns have become some of the most common dental treatments to restore the look and functionality to a tooth.

Bridges are used to repair any damaged or missing teeth. They are used to maintain a proper occlusion, and a great looking smile while you restore all basic biting functions. With porcelain crowns or porcelain bridges, we can create a complete smile makeover, a “Hollywood Smile” in less than 8 days and give you a complete new look, repairing any decay below while you will also look 10 years younger.

Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, becoming the tooth’s new outer surface and are an ideal way to rebuild broken teeth, or teeth weakened by decay or by large fillings. The crown will fit right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns are sometimes also known as “caps”. Crowns are made of porcelain and porcelain fused to metal.

Your crown isn’t noticeable. The crown will be made to match your other teeth exactly. The shade of the neighboring teeth will be recorded, to make sure that the color will match when the crown is prepared and thus looks like the original teeth. We can also do Veneers and Dental Bridges with crowns. Veneers are layers of porcelain (or other material) that are placed over the outer surface of a tooth to improve its looks. They are glued to the teeth with the help of strong cements that can last for a very long time. Veneers might need to be changed (every so often) for physical reasons like tooth grinding, discoloration, chipping or cracking. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.

What are dental crowns and how can they help your smile?

When should you get dental crowns?

Dental crowns are usually used when the outer layer of the tooth has been extensively damaged or after a root canal has been performed. The tooth has three main layers: enamel, dentine and pulp. Enamel is the hard and shiny semi-transparent cover that protects our teeth. It is slightly see-through which is the reason teeth can be stained or you can tell there’s an infection in the tooth if they turn into a different shade. When you get a dental crown, the enamel is filed down to the next layer to make room for the new cover that will replace the damaged surface. This is a permanent procedure.

What types of dental crowns exist?

Currently, some of the most common crowns are full zirconia crowns, full porcelain crowns and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. They can be done individually or as a bridge.

How long does it take to make dental crowns

The process of making dental crowns in our dental clinic in Cancun takes about 8 days. The first day you will have your teeth cleaned and impressions taken. Our specialist will then sculpt your new teeth to match the contiguous teeth to make sure your smile looks natural. If you are doing a full smile makeover with crowns you will be able to choose things like size, shape and color of your new teeth with the help of the dentist. Our dentists are experts in smile design so they can give you the best advice of what would match with your face, mouth and age.

What are the care instructions for dental crowns?

Taking care of your dental crowns is very important and the most deciding factor to make them last longer. You will need to clean them just as much or more than you did with natural teeth to make sure the borders of the crown have no food debris or plaque build up. If there’s plaque build up, your gums might retract and the root of your tooth will be exposed. Also, you should avoid biting on things that are too hard or sticky, like ice or candy. You should get a professional cleaning by a dentist at least once a year. Dental crowns can last over a decade with the proper care. Some people have their crowns for the rest of their lives this way.

Dental crowns in the USA usually cost around 1200-2000 USD each. This is without even including doctor fees and taxes. Here in Cancun you can save hundreds of dollars with our dental crown special deals. Get in touch with us to see what promotion it’s active at this time.

Dental crowns are a good idea for people who are looking for a complete smile makeover and still have good teeth roots and also for people who just want to fix a single tooth or who want a bridge to fill a gap.
