Restorative Dentistry Services at South Lakewood Dental In Lakewood COCrowns! Now there's a word that brings memories to most of us who have crowns would like to forget! For many years the choice was - get a crown or lose the tooth! Enter progress - “biomimetics”!
Biomimetics - Bio (nature) + Mimetic (mimicking) = Mimicking natureTeeth bend. Teeth flex. Teeth expand and contract. Teeth absorb stress and pressure - if they didn't, they would fracture to pieces. Crowns do not bend, or flex, or expand and contract like a tooth - they are rigid. So what happens when you put a rigid crown on a “flexible” tooth? Decay, infection and/or abscess, pain, root canals, extraction, possible implant to replace the tooth - sound familiar? To be fair, a percentage of crowns are successful, but there is a better way to restore significantly damaged teeth and get a more predictably successful long term result. If you’ve had a crown, you know that the tooth is ground down to a fraction of its original size to allow room for a crown to be made to cover it. There’s the problem - most of the protective structure of the tooth (in many cases healthy structure) is removed! This is big trauma for the tooth and what is left is expected to support the crown and last for years - good luck!
