Absolute Dental Care partners with individuals from Nixa, Fremont Hills, Client Springfield, Ozark, Clever, and greater southwestern Missouri. We work closely with patients to protect their teeth from dental decay and other threats. We also offer an array of cosmetic and durable dental restorations to resolve the damage. Restorative treatments, such as porcelain crowns or “caps,” preserve teeth. Dental extractions are avoided.
The crown is the white-colored part of your tooth. It is visible above the gum line when you smile. Crowns can become damaged due to several different conditions. These conditions include:
Our dentist, Dr. Todd Anderson, can rebuild your damaged crown. New, strong crowns are made from a wide range of dental materials. The material is precisely designed and shaped to fit on top of the natural tooth. Damaged tissues are removed to “prepare” the tooth. The crown is cemented or secured to the natural, prepared tissue.
Crowns and other restorations may be made from metals, porcelain, and other ceramics, and a combination of metals and non-metals. Absolute Dental Care prefers porcelain.
Porcelain resists stains well. Its translucency and reflectivity are also comparable to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is strong and wears well as long as it is treated with consistent, good oral care. Additionally, we can perfectly match the shade and other features of the tooth to blend in with the rest of your smile.
During a consultation at our office in Nixa, Missouri, we will evaluate and discuss factors that could influence your unique treatment plan. These considerations include:
Crowns may also be used to replace teeth. They are used in cosmetic dentistry, too. Additional applications for crowns include:
