Why Choose White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for Dental Crowns?

Uses for Dental Crowns

Woman with healthy smile

As much as we would like it to, a cracked or severely worn tooth can’t heal itself naturally. With a customized dental crown from our Goode, VA dental office, patients strengthen and revitalize a hurting tooth, restoring it to its former glory. Dental crowns can also be used as finishing touches for root canal treatment and dental implants, as well as to correct purely cosmetic issues such as misshapen teeth.

Dental Crown Process

The creation and placement of a dental crown usually requires two appointments. Once we’ve determined that a crown is the right choice for your smile, Dr. White will carefully prepare the tooth and take impressions. A temporary crown will be custom created and worn so your confidence and complete smile isn’t disrupted while we wait for your permanent restoration from the lab. Once we’ve received your customized crown, we’ll call you back to place it snugly over the tooth and ensure that it’s comfortable and secure.

The material your crown will be crafted from depends on its location in the mouth and the amount of stress it endures on a daily basis. Drs. Julia and Brandon White are happy to offer all-ceramic, tooth-colored options so patients enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Dental Crown FAQs

Dentures lying on a table

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

It’s typically not recommended to sleep with your dentures in. Dentures adhere to the gums via suction, which requires a snug fit— so snug, in fact, that it can cut off circulation to the gums. While this isn’t necessarily a problem when wearing your prosthetic, it could irritate your gums over time if you never take them off.

It’s also possible for your denture to collect bacteria over time, and for them to grow under your dentures. Taking them out overnight to soak in an antibacterial solution can help to mitigate this issue.

What Can’t You Eat with Dentures?

While dentures can provide you with greater bite force than you may have without them, there are still some foods that you should probably steer clear from eating with your prosthetic, like:

  • Hard-to-crack foods like nuts, apples, and carrots. These could damage your prosthetic if you aren’t careful.
  • Tough meats, like steak, that could put a lot of stress on your prosthetic.
  • Food with bits that could get stuck under your dentures, like popcorn.
  • Sticky foods, like peanut butter and caramel, that can pull your denture out of place.

Why Do My Dentures Smell?

When dentures smell, it’s usually because of a bacterial contamination that has taken over your prosthetic. You should make sure that you’re cleaning your dentures thoroughly via both brushing and an antibacterial cleaner. You should also clean elsewhere in your mouth, thoroughly brushing your gums and tongue.

These kinds of infections can be exacerbated by ill-fitting dentures that irritate the gums and the other soft tissues in the mouth. You may also want to pursue a denture reline if you notice an uptick in gum sores along with the smell.

Will Dentures Change the Shape of My Face?

It’s natural for your face to sag if you’re missing teeth, which can affect your overall appearance and cause wrinkles prematurely. Thankfully, a set of well-fitting dentures can take the place of the teeth in this regard, giving you face some much-needed support. This is yet another reason to make sure that your prosthetic fits well, and to get a reline if you need one.
