Information to Be Aware of When Getting a Dental Crown in Kona

A Dental Crown in Kona is offered when a tooth has a large amount of decay or has been fractured. Once the tooth in question is determined to be severely dilapidated, the dentist restores it using reconstitution materials (like a resin) and then the tooth is prepared so the dentist can lay the crown. This is what happens in the majority of cases. In others, the tooth is too damaged for the crown to be placed on it.

An inlay-core reconstructs the visible part of the tooth. The inlay-core is fixed in the tooth’s root by means of a tenon. It serves as a support for the future crown. All dentists are able to install dental crowns. There are three main types of crowns:

•Metal crowns, which are composed of non-precious (nickel, chromium…), semi-precious or precious (palladium, gold…) metals.

•Metal-ceramic crowns are part metal (interior) and part ceramic (exterior). Metal can be non-precious, semi-precious or precious.

•Ceramic on ceramic crowns is those entirely made in ceramic.

Which one to choose? The first criterion to consider is aesthetics; then it depends on each clinical case. Sometimes a ceramic on ceramic crown cannot be used (for example, in the case of a large bridge). The price is also another issue to be taken into consideration knowing that metal crowns are the least expensive.

Generally, the installation of a Dental Crown in Kona happens without problems. Nevertheless, people can sometimes have some minor inconveniences. It is possible to feel small pains in the days following the procedure, for example when there was no provisional crown placed. The gum could be irritated with the new crown as well. One can have an abscess after the dentist places a crown. If this occurs, chances are pretty great that Carter S. Yokoyama D.D.S. starts the devitalization process to see if the problem disappears. Other than itching, patients are known to feel a small amount of pressure at the level of the crown.

There are no contraindications to laying a crown. One must simply be careful of the risk of allergic reaction to one of the constituent materials of the crown. For more details, visit the website.
