KINGSPORT, TN, March 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When tooth decay becomes so severe that it damages a patient's teeth to the point that veneers, bonding or any other conservative treatments are not possible restorative treatment options, the Kingsport area family dentists at Guest, Guest and Guest offer dental crowns to put strength back into teeth. Dr. Charles Guest, Dr. Cheston Guest and Dr. Meaghan Guest work together to provide their patients in Kingsport with dental crowns for an ideal solution to restore their teeth to their natural state and strength.
"Today, there are a variety of treatment options to restore your teeth. One commonly used dental option is crowns. The main purpose of dental crowns is to enclose a needy tooth with a custom-designed material. It is best to discuss your restorative options with our office, to find out if crowns are the best choice for reconstructing and protecting your damaged teeth," said Dr. Charles Guest in Kingsport about dental crowns.
Dental crowns are a type of restoration that can help to protect a patient's teeth that have become damaged, broken or cracked. In other words, a crown is used to preserve and strengthen an existing damaged tooth, rather than to replace it as a whole. Patients in Kingsport may require a dental crown if the structure is too weak to support a filling. Crowns can also be used to strengthen teeth after various dental treatments such as root canals or used in place of bonding to build the strength of the fractured tooth.
A tooth is usually reduced in size to accommodate the dental crown. To do this, a cast is made of the existing tooth in order to create an impression. The impression is sent to a special lab to manufacture a custom designed crown for a patient's individual needs. The dental crowns are sent to an outside laboratory for fabrication. Dr. Charles Guest, Cheston Guest and Dr. Meaghan Guest work together to create custom dental crowns for their patients in Kingsport so that the restoration matches their teeth.
Once the dental crown is prepared, one of the Kingsport area cosmetic dentists at Guest, Guest and Guest will prepare the patient's tooth with a special acid that improves the bonding process. After testing the crown to make sure it properly fits the patient's tooth, Dr. Guest will use dental cement to bond the crown into place.
For patients who are experiencing a problem with one or more of his or her teeth, dental crowns may be a viable option for restoring their smile when damage is present. With proper examination, Dr. Charles Guest, Dr. Cheston Guest and Dr. Meaghan Guest will determine if dental crowns are the best choice for returning a patient's teeth to their original strength.
