Caring for Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns applied to your teeth give a more natural and aesthetic smile as well as a healthy tooth. However, after the application, it will be useful to pay attention to your oral and dental care in order to have a longer service life of porcelain crowns.
In particular, daily cleaning of teeth and gums can ensure that porcelain crowns can be used longer. A lot of attention should be paid to the cleanliness of the interface area between the teeth. The plaques accumulated in these places may cause structural damage to the porcelain crowns over time and the development of infection in the surrounding tissues.
In addition to brushing teeth as much as possible, you should also be careful to floss to clean the gums.
After the application of porcelain crowns, it is recommended not to break and chew as much hard substances as possible with the tooth. In addition, you can continue to use your porcelain crown teeth in a healthy way by not disrupting your regular dental checks.
Porcelain Crown Usage Time
Porcelain crowns are among the dental applications that can be used for a lifetime as long as attention is paid to care. However, the successful application of porcelain crowns is very important at this point.
You can use porcelain crowns for many years without any problems, paying attention to tooth and gum care and not pushing the teeth too hard. You should prefer fluoride toothpastes during the brushing of your teeth.
You can also have healthier teeth by making a habit of flossing. After the porcelain crown application, you should have your dental controls at least every 6 months. In this way, our physician has the chance to intervene in a possible problem.
What is the Difference between Zirconium Crown and Metal Supported Crown?
Two of the most preferred porcelain crown types are zirconium and metal supported ones. However, when the material to be used and the result are examined, it is possible to say that both are different applications.
There is metal in the substructure of porcelain crown coatings with metal support. Until recent years, there was a perception that metal-supported porcelain crowns were used longer than zirconium. In terms of durability, metal-supported zirconium coatings are in the lead, while aesthetically the performance of zirconium is higher.
Due to the fact that the gum structure is very thin, metal-supported crowns can be reflected from the gum. However, there is no such problem with zirconium-supported crown coatings. Healthy and natural tooth results can be obtained in both types of crown coatings.
Is it possible to venerate the rooted teeth?
In order for the porcelain crown to be applied, the tooth must support the crown even if it is small. For this, decayed teeth are examined. If there is no root canal treatment to be performed on the teeth, a sub-ground can also be created. However, porcelain crown applications can be easily made to all teeth with the root remaining and the appropriate size for crown support.
