Dental Crowns-All You Need To Know

There are millions of people across the globe who have had a dental crown to replace a missing tooth or strengthen a weakened tooth. A dental crown is a dental material that is applied over the crown of the tooth to provide it with protection and support. If you would like to know more about dental crowns, then here is some useful information brought to you by Ridgetop Dental International Pvt Ltd, one of the leading dental clinic in Bangalore for general dentistry & cosmetic procedures.

What is a dental crown?

The anatomy of a tooth can be divided into two basic parts -- the root and the crown. The part of the tooth that is visible in the mouth, above the gum line on lower teeth and below the gum line on upper teeth, is called the clinical crown. A cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the clinical crown is referred to as a dental crown, or cap.

When is a dental crown needed?

Here are some conditions for which the leading cosmetic dentists in Bangalore would recommend dental crowns:

1To provide strength to a large filling
2.In Root Canal Treatment
3.Cracked tooth syndrome
4.Broken Cusps
5.Undesirable appearance of teeth
6.To hold a dental bridge in place
7.To cover a dental implant
8.To make cosmetic modification

Types of dental crowns available

Crowns can be made out of a gold alloy, some other metal alloy, stainless steel, all-porcelain/all-ceramic, composite resin, zirconia, or porcelain on the outside fused to metal or zirconia on the inside.

Will there be pain?

The tooth being restored is numbed so that it isn't painful during the crown preparation. After the procedure is over and the anaesthesia has worn off, the patient may feel some sensitivity with the temporary crown or some soreness in the gums around the tooth. The pain is very minimal though and shouldn't last long.

Tips To Keep Pearly Whites, White Forever!

No matter what the fashion trend this season, one fashion accessory that never goes out of vogue is-dazzling white smile.  But unfortunately, due to our poor eating and drinking habits and bad oral hygiene, our pearly whites lose their natural shine and whiteness. So, is there a way to whiten them? Yes, actually many! Ridgetop Dental International Pvt Ltd., a leading dental clinic in Bangalore, who have been helping patients get the perfect white, dazzling smile since many years explain what it takes to get a flashy white smile. Read on to find out.

Watch your diet

If you’re drinking a lot of red wine or black tea, or smoking cigarettes, expect the results to show up as not-so-pearly whites. Other culprits include colas, gravies and dark juices. Brush your teeth immediately after having foods that stain.

Go for whitening gel

While many products claim to have whitening results, only a gel will actually be able to whiten beyond surface stains.

Drink with a straw

Doing away with most of the beverages is easier said than done. Even if you can’t avoid drinking them you surely can avoid them contacting your teeth by sipping from a straw!

Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables

The abrasive quality of crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, pears, carrots, etc. can help clean stains from your teeth.

Most-important-Visit your dentist regularly

Whatever tips you choose to follow it is of utmost importance to visit your dentist regularly. Along with the routine check-up your dentist can remove stubborn tooth stains with scaling and other tooth whitening procedures.
