Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that covers the entire tooth surface restoring it to its initial sizes and shape. A crown protects and reinforces the tooth structure giving the tooth a longer life span than it would have if restored by fillings or other kinds of restorations.

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are utilized to cover a tooth that is likely to break, or is too broken down to be restored with a filling. They are most typically done after root canal treatments, or when a big filling wears out. The larger the hole made by a cavity that needs to be treated, the more likely a crown will be needed. Even after a filling is put in a huge cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth undergo tremendous pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, providing strength and securing the tooth against breakage. A busted or cracked tooth is a far more severe matter and a lot more hard to treat. Crowns prevent this, as well as producing a good smile.

It takes 2 appointments to restore a tooth with a crown. In the first visit any decay is eliminated from the tooth and it is shaped to accept the crown. Then an impression is made of the tooth for use in producing a crown. Between the two visits the crown is made, typically of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold. A short-term crown is worn throughout this time. In the second visit this short-term crown is removed. Then the {permanent crown is adjusted as needed and then cemented in place.

Exactly What Does Getting A Crown Include?

A crown treatment usually requires two visits. Your first visit will include taking impressions that will be used to create your custom-made crown. A mold will also be used to produce a temporary crown which will remain on your tooth for around 2 weeks until your brand-new crown is fabricated by a dental lab.

While the tooth is numb, the dental practitioner will prepare the tooth by eliminating any decay and forming the surface area to appropriately fit the crown. When these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be positioned with short-term cement and your bite will be examined to ensure you are biting correctly.

At your 2nd visit your short-term crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully positioned to make sure the spacing and bite are accurate.

You will be given care guidelines and encouraged to have routine dental check ups to check your crown. As always, appropriate oral hygiene will help extend the life of your brand-new crown.
