What Is A Dental Crown?

A crown is a cap made to cover a tooth with the purpose of restoring it to its natural size and shape or to enhance its look. To prepare for the crown, dental practitioners drill to eliminate the decayed section and also form the tooth to get ready for the crown for that portion which lies around and above the gum line.

Dental Crowns

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

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break, or is too broken down to be restored with a filling. They are most commonly 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 big cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the human body. Teeth go through incredible pressures. Crowns sit over the weakened tooth, offering strength and protecting the tooth against damage. A damaged or split tooth is a much more serious matter and far more difficult to treat. Crowns prevent this, in addition to producing a good smile.

It takes two appointments to recover a tooth with a crown. In the first visit any decay is removed from the tooth and it is formed to accept the crown. Then an impression is made of the tooth for use in fabricating a crown. In between the two visits the crown is made, usually of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold. A temporary crown is worn during 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 generally needs 2 appointments. Your very first visit will include taking impressions that will be used to produce your customized crown. A mold will also be used to produce a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for roughly two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

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

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

You will be given care directions 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.
