About Dental Crowns
Our teeth weaken and become more prone to issues including decay, cracking, discoloration, and others over time. Crowns can help you restore your smile if you feel it has lost some of its former luster. In order to prevent further issues with the tooth, a crown may be required if your dentist discovers that a tooth is decaying or appears weak or fractured. A filling or bonding won’t be adequate in this situation.
Porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a whole gold crown can all be used to create dental crowns. A porcelain finished crown is ideal for maintaining a natural look and feel since it may be matched to the color of your remaining teeth. As a result, it will be able to blend in and seem exactly like one of your natural teeth.
A Crown Installation Procedure Necessitates Two to Three Dental Visits
To prepare the tooth for the crown, the enamel will be filed down at the initial session. Before this stage of the surgery, a local anesthetic will be administered to you to ensure your comfort. A mold of the tooth and the neighboring teeth will be made after the tooth has been altered. A dental lab will use this mold to manufacture your new crown, ensuring that it fits in the space that has been produced for it and resembles the neighboring teeth. Your dentist will fit you with a temporary crown before you leave until your permanent crown is prepared.
