If You Require A Crown This Is Probably The Best Choice

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

The Traditional 2 Visit Way

At the very first appointment, impressions are taken of the tooth and the impression is sent to a lab so that your permanent crown can be made. Lots of people dislike the goopy impression materials that can make them gag which takes up to 5 minutes in their mouth to set.

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

The Conversation For Today Will Be:

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its initial sizes and shape. 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 likely to break, or is too broken down to be brought back with a filling. They are most frequently done after root canal treatments, or when a large filling breaks. The bigger the hole made by a cavity that has to be treated, the more likely a crown will be needed. Even after a filling is put in a large cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Bear in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth go through tremendous pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, providing strength and securing the tooth against breakage. A busted or split tooth is a much more serious matter and far more difficult to treat. Crowns prevent this, in addition to producing a nice smile.

It takes 2 appointments to bring back a tooth with a crown. In the first visit any decay is removed 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. In 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 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 treatment usually requires 2 appointments. Your very first appointment will consist of taking impressions that will be utilized to produce your custom-made crown. A mold will also be utilized to create a short-term crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks up until your new crown is produced by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dental practitioner will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface area to effectively fit the crown. As soon as these details are accomplished, your short-term crown will be placed with short-term cement and your bite will be checked to guarantee you are biting properly.

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 guarantee the spacing and bite are precise.

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