Dental Crowns Overview
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made restorations designed to strengthen and repair damaged teeth or to cover dental implants. They can be made of many different materials, but are most commonly made of porcelain to match the color of your teeth, leaving you with a natural-looking smile. Dental crowns are very durable and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Possible Uses of Dental Crowns
Dr. Gandhi may recommend a crown if you have a tooth with decay that is too large or too close to the nerve to repair using traditional fillings. You may also need a dental crown to restore the form and function of a tooth that has been chipped, cracked, fractured, or worn down. Crowns are commonly used to protect teeth after root canal therapy to prevent any fracturing, to cover dental implants, and to support dental bridges and dentures.
Dental crowns offer cosmetic dentistry solutions to correct the appearance of misshaped, misaligned, or stained and discolored teeth. Your restorations mimic the properties of your natural teeth in their appearance and function, leaving you an incredibly natural smile.
What Are the Steps of Placing a Dental Crown?
Placing your dental crown will typically require two visits to our office. We will start by numbing the area for your comfort. We will prepare your tooth by removing a layer of enamel to make room for your crown and will take an impression of your teeth to send to our laboratory which will fabricate your dental crown. Your restoration will be carefully matched to the shade of your natural teeth to deliver the best aesthetic results. We will place a temporary dental crown to cover and protect your prepared tooth.
During a follow-up appointment, we will fit you with your dental crown. We will check for proper fit and will make any needed adjustments before cementing it into place. You will be amazed at how natural your new restored teeth look and feel!
Caring for Your Crowns
You will need to make sure to brush and floss regularly to keep your mouth clean and healthy. It is also advisable to avoid clenching or grinding your teeth, or biting down on hard foods to prevent damaging your restoration. You will need to keep up with your routine dental exams and cleanings to maintain your oral health and to allow us to monitor your restorations. With proper care, your crowns have the potential of lasting a lifetime.
