A true smile leaves no space for a cavity in your life


What is your true smile metre?

A healthy smile is not just one that looks great; it is one that is genuinely great. It’s not only about what is seen on the outside but also about reflecting inner well-being. A complete smile accurately mirrors a perfect score from the inside out. A smile is truly complete when there are no aches and pains. A smile reflecting your true well-being is the only smile worth having.

Damaged teeth enamel can ruin this beautiful smile and must not be left alone. Such issues are the beginning of a host of dental hygiene problems that can escalate into more severe cases. However, a crown can be a long-term dental restoration, ensuring the durability of your teeth and allowing you the comfort of a hassle-free lifestyle.

The most common reasons for a dental crown arise from various situations

  • To protect a weak tooth from decay/breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
  • To restore an already broken or severely worn-down tooth.
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t much tooth left.
  • To hold a dental bridge in place.
  • To cover severely discoloured teeth.
  • To cover a dental implant.
  • To make a cosmetic modification.

Crowns, the basis of restorative procedures worldwide

A crown, also known as a dental cap, tooth cap or a porcelain jacket, is a type of dental restoration that completely caps a tooth or dental implant. They are often used when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth and requires preparation and additional materials such as dental cement during the procedure. Crowns are fabricated to meet your unique specification based on your case history and the shape of the tooth in consideration. They improve the strength and appearance of your teeth.

With the advent of cutting-edge technology and rampant innovation, many experts around the globe have collectively voiced the success of crowns being the very basis of dental restoration.

Although no dental restoration lasts forever, the average lifespan of a crown is around 10 years. And with proper care, they can last the lifetime of the patient.  Considering the longevity and durability of the results, among other benefits, crowns protect the tooth from further health loss through restorative procedures.

Global leading experts advocate the use of crowns for dental restoration with only one thing in mind, longevity of the results over the cost of the procedure. Costs of crowns vary depending on what part of the country you live in and on the type of crown selected. Some crowns, like porcelain crowns, typically cost more than metal crowns or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Your first step should be to assess this cost by discussing your needs with your dental expert.

Types of Crowns

The vital aspect to consider in dental restoration procedures is the material used to fabricate the crown.Crowns can be fabricated from metal, metal-fused and porcelain.

  • Stainless steel crowns are prefabricated crowns used on permanent teeth, primarily as a temporary measure.
  • Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium), or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium).
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns can be colour matched to your adjacent teeth, unlike the metallic crowns.
  • All-resin dental crowns are less expensive but wear down over time and are more prone to fractures than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
  • All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide better natural colour match than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies.

The end-to-end solution for each case’s success.

Dental restorations are permanent procedures. The quality of the crowns, procedural technique, and technology are all important factors to consider before choosing the expert for restoring your confidence. This decision should be guided by a personalised, thorough assessment of your oral health to ensure the right solution for your case requirement.

At Maeoris Dental, we take pride in the quality of materials used for this procedure and the education we provide to our clients during the pre- and post-restoration phases. This is a significant value-addition to the dentist-patient relationship, building trust and confidence in the personal service we provide.

Dental restorations require precision and personal attention, and that is what we bring to our patrons. The very fabric of what we believe in steers our core value, ensuring that you and your well-being are at the helm of every decision and solution. This is a privilege we cherish with utmost respect and empathy.

While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember that simply because a tooth is crowned, it does not mean the underlying tooth is protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day.
