Dental caps

Smile again. Dental caps will make you forget all of your dental problems

What are dental caps?

Dental caps are used to entirely cover a tooth as a part of a dental treatment. Their utilization is a recurrent solution to dental spacing ( diastemas). Also when dental pieces are too small, discolored, or have suffered serious damage, like a major fracture.

In order to fit a dental cap the original tooth needs to be prepared beforehand. That means grinding or shaving, and finally polishing each tooth for maximal adherence. Eventually, severe cases may require root canals.

This procedure may also need a few sessions, according to the number of teeth to cover. It is necessary to make the original tooth small enough for the dental cap to fit perfectly and leave no gaps, in order to guarantee a high degree of comfort and durability and, above all, avoiding further complications.

Benefits of using dental caps

  • They solve the original tooth’s problem
  • They cover the original tooth with a tailored cap
  • Easy maintenance
  • High resistance and long durability

Some dental problems require deep interventions, like the ones caused by accidents or stemming from insufficient oral hygiene. In such cases, dental veneers may not be enough to give the affected teeth their original look back. Dental veneers are applied on the front side of each tooth, while dental caps cover the entire stump and allow keeping the original tooth.
Let that aside, it’s not all about the looks. Logically, the convenience of getting a dental cap depends on the condition of the affected teeth, their position and how bad the original problem is.

Again, the affected teeth must be healed and prepared before the intervention,, so no mid or long-term complications arise once the problem is solved.
Last, but not least, the tooth’s stump must be polished, since dental caps are confected in a laboratory. It is therefore necessary to ensure a perfect fit and make sure no bacteria or food debris stays there.

Our zirconia dental caps are a practical and effective solution for serious dental issues requiring an invasive intervention. However, the outcome is a comfortable and highly aesthetic result.

    Dental caps

    Dental caps are a quick solution for many dental cosmetic problems. Moreover, placing dental caps is one of the most frequent procedures in dentistry. Their cosmetic results are very satisfactory in complex cases where a tooth’s size or rotation must be corrected. The most convenient option is always agreed with an experimented cosmetic dentistry specialist. Dental caps can be replaced, yet it remains an irreversible treatment due to the need to prepare the tooth.

    There are many advantages in using dental caps. On the one hand, they solve two problems at once: the medical one and the cosmetic one. On the other, they’re much more affordable than other treatments like dental implants, which require a more invasive intervention to extract the tooth and its nerve, and place the sleeve that will keep the crown in its place.
    Dental problems often generate complexes and a lack of self-confidence. But dental treatments do consider the cosmetic factor. Your smile and dentition are important. We know, and that’s why the Arte Sano Clinic is committed to making you take pride in your smile.

    Experience and expertise are crucial to place dental caps. Such procedure requires cleanliness, asepsis and a clinical eye for pinpoint accuracy. One small miscalculated gap can lead to long-term complications such as cavities or abscesses, which require more invasive future interventions. In Arte Sano we are aware of how delicate this treatment is, and do it with the utmost seriousness and professionalism. Your oral health is our top priority to guarantee your well-being, and your total satisfaction.
