Today's Conversation Has To Do With:

Dental Crowns

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

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is most 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 huge filling wears out. The bigger 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 most likely to break. Remember that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth are subjected to incredible pressures. Crowns sit over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protecting the tooth against breakage. A broken or split tooth is a much more severe matter and a lot more hard to treat. Crowns prevent this, along with making for a nice smile.

It takes two appointments to bring back a tooth with a crown. In the very first appointment 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 fabricating a crown. Between the two visits the crown is made, usually of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold. A short-term crown is used throughout this time. In the 2nd visit this short-term crown is removed. Then the {permanent crown is adjusted as needed and after that cemented in place.

What Does Getting A Crown Include?

A crown treatment generally requires 2 appointments. Your very first appointment will include taking impressions that will be utilized to develop your custom-made crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for roughly 2 weeks till your new crown is produced by a dental laboratory.

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

At your second visit your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your brand-new crown will be carefully positioned to ensure 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, proper oral hygiene will help extend the life of your new crown.
