Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restorative procedure that covers, or "caps", a tooth to restore its natural shape and size. The dental crown procedure strengthens and improves the appearance of the tooth. Dental crowns are necessary when a tooth is broken down and fillings won't solve the problem. A crown holds a cracked tooth together so the damage doesn't get worse.

There are many benefits of dental crowns; after the crowning process is completed, the teeth of the patient become much attractive and stronger. Crowns are designed and created to give a natural look. It can also improve the appearance of your tooth. The best part of crown is that it can last for a long time. It lasts for about eight years. Crowns can last for much longer time if patients have a good oral hygiene and keep away from damaging habits like fingernail biting, ice chewing and teeth grinding.

A dental crown is a cemented restoration that will rest on top of the tooth itself, and it can be, either a partial or a complete restoration implant. Whether or not it is a complete or partial restoration is dependent on the tooth or teeth issues themselves. Dental crown implants can be used to accommodate various situations with teeth. Some of these situations can be as follows. These situations can include to restore a tooth that is either broken or severely worn down, a tooth that is very weak from either decay or because it is cracked, to keep a dental bridge in place properly, cover an existing dental implant, to cover and be the support for a large filling that hardly has any existing tooth left, and to do a cosmetic modification.

Dental crowns that are made and prepared from reinforced resin or porcelain are regarded as aesthetically satisfying. This material actually comes with many shades, which can match easily to the surrounding teeth’s color. This procedure takes a minimum of 2 office visits, as a mold needs to be taken on the first visit for the crown to be fabricated by a dental laboratory. A temporary crown is placed on the tooth until the porcelain crown is made. After the crown is in place, the dentist will give you care instructions and you are encouraged to keep regular office visits to check on your new crown.
