With Drs Michael and Emily Herndon Well, I am back with these articles after much thought and considera- tion. The title is changed although the intent to inform is still at the forefront of these writings In the last week, I have had three patients come in with toothaches in teeth with metal or metal/porcelain crowns. Diagnostic evaluation did not reveal any tooth decay yet it was obvious that these teeth needed attention in the form of root canal treatment to eliminate the pain the patients were having. Upon entering these three teeth, it was found that despite being no clinical or x-ray evidence that there was a cavity under the crowns, they indeed had large amounts of decay. The use of metal crowns prohibits the diagnostic value of x-rays unless the decay extends below the level of the crown. However, the use of porcelain or hybrid materials for crowns allows much better diagnostic consideration during examinations. This is one of the reasons that dentists are moving away from metal or metal substrate crowns Another reason is that with current bonding techniques and new materials that have been developed to create esthetic fracture resistant crowns, we can be so much more conservative with your natural tooth structure. This minimizes trauma to the teeth as well as preserving a much more natural look. In our office, Dr. Emily and I provide conservative partial and full crowns using what is considered the "Gold Standard" of bonding techniques and materials that are far more fracture resistant than standard materials. These crowns are actually provided for teeth in one appointment. A patient comes in for a crown and they leave with the final crown in place. We carefully follow the science behind these materials and techniques and provide our patients with these crowns designed and bonded to create natural looking comfortable restorations. DR.
