If You Require A Crown This Is Most Likely The Best Option

Getting a crown has long been known to be a two-visit dental experience. Many individuals have no idea that this is not the case with same day crowns. For our lucky clients, getting a crown only takes one visit!

The Old Fashioned Two-Visit Way

At the first visit, impressions are taken of the tooth and the impression is sent out to a laboratory so that your permanent crown can be made. Lots of people do not like the goopy impression products that can make them gag and that takes up to five minutes in their mouth to set.

Then your tooth is shaved down so that your crown can be put on top of it. Then you receive a short-term crown cemented over the shaved tooth to hold you over till your long-term crown shows up from the laboratory. Then later, you have to go back to the dentist, have the temporary crown taken out and the new crown placed on your tooth

Today's Conversation Will Be About:

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that covers the entire tooth surface area restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens 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 used to cover a tooth that is likely to break, or is too broken down to be recovered with a filling. They are most frequently done after root canal treatments, or when a big filling wears out. The larger the hole made by a cavity that has to be treated, the more likely a crown will be required. Even after a filling is put in a big cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Remember that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the human body. Teeth go through remarkable pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, providing strength and securing the tooth against damage. A damaged or cracked tooth is a much more serious matter and a lot more difficult to treat. Crowns prevent this, along with making for a good smile.

It takes 2 appointments to recover a tooth with a crown. In the first appointment any decay is eliminated from the tooth and it is formed to accept the crown. Then an impression is made of the tooth for use in making a crown. In between the two visits the crown is made, generally of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold. A temporary crown is used during this time. In the 2nd visit this temporary crown is removed. Then the {permanent crown is adjusted as needed then cemented in place.

What Does Getting A Crown Include?

A crown procedure normally needs 2 appointments. Your very first visit will consist of taking impressions that will be used to produce your customized crown. A mold will also be utilized to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for roughly two weeks till your brand-new crown is produced 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 correctly fit the crown. As soon as these details are achieved, your short-term crown will be put with short-term cement and your bite will be inspected to ensure you are biting correctly.

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

You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have routine dental visits to examine your crown. As always, proper oral hygiene will help extend the life of your brand-new crown.
