The Pirate’s of Dental Gold Crowns

Thinking about pirates can conjure up entertaining images of treasure chests, sword fights and mischief on the high seas. But have you had a good look at his teeth? Crooked and rotten teeth are ugly and unhealthy, but Dental Gold Crowns can bring strength and style.

Golden crowns for pirates and freshwater sailors

A crown (sometimes called a coping) is an excellent solution for restoring a damaged tooth. The crown completely covers and protects the part of the tooth that is visible at and above the gum line. This prevents plaque and bacteria from easily attacking the tooth. It also gives strength to the remaining tooth structure and can be shaped very naturally.

Dental Gold crowns have been available since at least the mid-18th century, a time that coincides with the “golden age” of piracy between the 1680s and 1730s. But you don’t have to be a pirate to need it. Your dentist may recommend a crown for:

(1) Replacing a filling, especially if there is not enough tooth structure left to support a new filling.

(2) It prevents a decayed tooth from breaking easily.

(3) Protect a cracked tooth.

(4) Restoring a tooth after root canal treatment.

(5) Covering a dental implant or holding a bridge in place.

(6) Provide an alternative to cover discolored teeth.

Dental Gold crowns can be easily cast into a precision crown. In addition, less tooth structure needs to be removed than with other types of crowns. Because the metal is so strong, gold crowns can withstand biting and chewing forces. At the same time, a gold crown on one tooth does not cause additional wear on the opposite tooth, making it a good choice for hard-working molars (back teeth).

Gold is very durable and does not flake, break or tarnish easily. With proper care, a gold crown can last longer than a crown made from other types of materials.

Other options for crowns

Depending on your particular situation, several options may be available in addition to gold crowns, including resin, porcelain fused to metal, or porcelain. Your dentist will work with you to determine the best solution.

Sometimes the dentist may replace a filling instead of restoring the tooth with a crown. However, if the tooth has too many cavities or is too weak, a filling may only be a temporary solution.

Hackers and others who neglect their teeth are only postponing the inevitable. If your dentist recommends a crown and delays treatment, the situation will only get worse. The untreated tooth becomes more susceptible to bacteria which can invade the pulp and cause cavities, infections and pain. If the tooth breaks or needs to be removed, it can lead to problems moving the teeth, loosening of the jaw, gingivitis, periodontal disease and even more serious problems.

Other options for pirate teeth

The best ways to minimize the risk of getting cracked teeth are to brush and floss daily, eat a healthy diet, and get regular dental checkups. However, having healthy teeth that look like a pirate’s can be fun for costume parties and dressing up.

For example, an actor may take advantage of temporary cosmetic procedures to bond veneers to their real teeth, making them look drastically different. If you don’t like movies but want to have fun, you might want to get involved in International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th.
