A crown (or cap) is a restoration that encases the whole tooth surface, returning its shape and size to its original state.
Age, fillings, and tooth decay are some of the variables that can cause erosion, cracking, and breaking of your teeth. Crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry to address these issues. Dental crowns provide strength, endurance, and stability by covering the full surface of the damaged tooth.
There are three types of crowns: metal crowns, which are best for back teeth, porcelain crowns, which are best for front teeth, and porcelain fused with metal crowns, which are sturdy and seem natural.
Dental crowns can help you improve the look and condition of your teeth while also protecting them from future breaks or damage.
Dental Crowns: Purpose and Procedure
Two visits are normally required for a crown operation. During your initial appointment, we will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and creating a strong foundation for the crown to rest on. Following that, we’ll take impressions from which the crown will be created. Until the permanent crown is ready, a temporary crown is used.
You will return in two weeks to have your temporary crown removed and your new crown installed. The porcelain crown will safeguard your tooth, but as with any operation, good home maintenance and regular dental appointments will help your new crown last as long as possible.
