My sister actually referred me to this Ventura location. I haven't had the best treatment at other dental offices in the past so I was looking for a new place with excellent care. I am so glad I found Channel Islands Family Dental Office Ventura they have met my expectations above & beyond. The staff is wonderful they are all so respectful & nice they make you feel comfortable & relaxed. Perla has been great with keeping up with getting all of my paperwork submitted to insurance. Approval has been fast and they are very quick with getting your next appointment scheduled & @ times that work best with your schedule thats a huge plus for me. It's been an amazing experience working with Dr. Nicholas Young he is the best dentist I've seen in a very long time. I plan to continue coming here as long as I can receive treatment from him. I trust him and know he's doing the best he can to do for the job that needs to be done and he cares about his work & patients. I absolutely recommend this office for emergency dental work and all general dental care. I've actually had my daughter's records transfered here as she will start getting her dental work done at this office location too and I'm going to look into the orthodontist they work with for my son. I'm putting my trust into this practice to care for my family's dental needs. Thank you Channel Island Family Dental Office Ventura for all of your dedicated work and making my dental experience great again.

Dental Crowns

Today, with advances in science and technology, dental crowns are more sophisticated in terms of their properties such as resistance, toughness, texture, shine, opacity, adaptability, durability and mimicry with the remaining biological structures; making the prognosis of dental rehabilitation treatment more encouraging in many cases. However, it should be noted that all prosthetic treatment always goes hand in hand with the operator’s expertise, to make a precise diagnosis and to indicate this or that rehabilitative treatment. The different dental crowns that are offered in clinics vary according to the place, culture, education, but especially the purchasing power of the patients.

Materials that crowns are made of

What is Dental Crowns?

dental prosthesis

 Dental Crowns are a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth covering it to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crown fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dental Crowns are custom made to fit over each tooth. They can be made of a variety of different materials, including ceramics, porcelain-and-metal, gold, or resin.

Which Dental Crowns Materials Should I Choose?

In order to recommend you which materials for Dental Crowns are the best, your dentist will first consider factors such as:

• Tooth’s location

• How much of the tooth will show when you smile

• Position of your gum tissue

• Function of the tooth that needs the crown

• How much natural tooth is remaining

• Color of the surrounding teeth

How Do I Know if I Need Dental Crowns?

dental crowns

If you have a large cavity that’s too big for a filling, it may be time for a crown. You may also need Dental Crowns if your tooth is: severely worn down, cracked, or weakened. Crowns are also recommended following a root canal on a tooth because the tooth is more fragile and needs protection.

You may be a candidate for a crown if you’re missing a tooth, and the dentist needs to put in a dental bridge or a tooth implant.

1. Ceramics:

dental crowns

Among them are the first ceramics enriched with feldspar and Lucite with a natural dental appearance, very high aesthetics, and low mechanical resistance and brittleness. The filling using this type of dental crowns are disorganized because of poor techniques of coccion and loss of uniformity.

2. Metal- Porcelain:

dental crowns

These dental crowns have the greatest supply and demand within the dental landscape. These are characterized in terms of their aesthetic, mechanical, and optical properties and also because of their low cost compared to zirconia. The full porcelain ceramics known as EMAX and are in greater demand, widely distributed in European and American countries.

3. Zirconia:

dental crowns

Zirconium is a material with white coloration. Thanks to which its aesthetic, natural results can be obtained with adequate luminosity. This material is very biocompatible. Thus, the prosthesis will be easier tolerated by the surrounding tissues. Also, Zirconium has the highest properties of hardness and resistance to attrition and flexion.

4. Lithium disilicate:

dental crowns

This ceramic, like porcelain, has little tolerance to permanent deformation, but it has excellent aesthetic results, which is why it is indicated for veneers of anterior teeth.

The dentist will find dental crowns convenient when:

dental crowns

In situations such as:

Replace large fillings, when not enough tooth remains

Prevent a weakened tooth from breaking

Cover a discolored or deformed tooth

Cover a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment

Improve the aesthetic appearance of an anatomically affected tooth.

Repair a fractured tooth

Cover a dental implant

Place a bridge

It is comforting to know that our oral health is in the hands of dental professionals with whom we trust our smile. Still, it is necessary to advise people that dental treatments are lasting as long as patients will adopt the measures required to ensure the longevity of your dental crown or bridge, such as:
It will be essential to keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day along with daily flossing.
Go to the hygienist or dentist regularly for regular check-ups and professional cleanings.
To avoid damaging the dental crowns or bridges, avoid chewing hard food, ice, or other hard objects.
