If You Need A Crown This Is 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 patients, getting a crown just takes one appointment!

The Old Two Visit Way

At the first appointment, impressions are taken of the tooth and the impression is sent to a laboratory so that your permanent crown can be made. Many people dislike the goopy impression products 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 put on top of it. Then you get a short-term crown cemented over the shaved tooth to hold you over till your long-term crown arrives from the laboratory. Then later, you have to go back to the dentist, have the temporary crown removed and the brand-new crown put on your tooth

Today's Conversation Has To Do With:

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 reinforces the tooth structure giving the tooth a longer life span than it would have if recovered 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 typically done after root canal treatments, or when a big filling breaks. 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 most likely to break. Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth are subjected to incredible pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, offering strength and protecting the tooth against damage. A busted or cracked tooth is a much more severe matter and far more hard to treat. Crowns prevent this, in addition to producing a good smile.

It takes two visits to bring back a tooth with a crown. In the first appointment 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 fabricating a crown. In between the two visits the crown is made, normally 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 and then cemented in place.

What Does Getting A Crown Involve?

A crown procedure generally requires 2 visits. Your first visit will include taking impressions that will be utilized to produce your custom-made crown. A mold will also be utilized to develop a short-term crown which will stay on your tooth for roughly two weeks until your new crown is made by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dental practitioner will prepare the tooth by eliminating any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are achieved, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be inspected to guarantee you are biting correctly.

At your 2nd visit your short-term 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 guidelines 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.
