Dental crowns are permanently attached prosthetic prostheses that cover fractured, decaying, discolored, or slightly misaligned teeth. They are often constructed of hard materials such as porcelain or ceramic and can be customized to match the form and color of your natural teeth. Other materials, such as resin, stainless steel, and metals such as gold, can also be used to make dental crowns. Healthy Smiles Dental Care offers safe and effective treatment, including dental crowns that are as natural-looking and feeling as possible.
Dental Crown Uses
To guard against future harm to a tooth
To protect a tooth that has been weakened by decay or illness, or to replace a rotting, damaged, or old filling
To save a tooth that has already been shattered
To restore broken teeth
To make cosmetic changes, such as filling gaps between teeth or reshaping
To keep dental bridges in place
To reestablish the strength of any tooth that has had root canal therapy.
Procedure for Placing a Dental Crown
Any decay in the tooth is removed through the root canal, and the outer portion of the tooth is shaved down to fit the crown.
An impression of your tooth is taken to create a precise model for your crown.
The dentist will place a temporary crown before sending your impressions to a facility where a permanent crown will be created. During this time, your teeth may be more sensitive to hot and cold, so avoid biting hard on them or eating sticky foods.
You will return for your next dental appointment once the permanent crown has been completed. Your dentist will place the permanent crown in your mouth, make any required modifications, and cement it in place.
Appropriate Dental Crown Care
It is critical to properly care for dental crowns for them to endure as long as feasible. Although it depends on the type and size of the dental crown, when properly cared for, they can survive for many years.
Crowns should be cleaned in the same way as normal teeth are. Although the materials used to make crowns do not deteriorate, the tooth near the tooth's edge can. Individuals should be instructed to brush their teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to properly clean the gaps between their teeth using interdental brushes or floss.
