Dental Crown

Dental crowns are common dental treatments performed to restore the function of a severely damaged tooth. A crown is made to resemble the appearance of your natural tooth.

Dental crowns can be used to:

  • Protect Weak, Chipped, or fractured Teeth

  • Restore a Broken or Worn Down Tooth

  • Cover & Support a Large Filling (when original tooth structure is severely damaged) Cover Misshapen or Discolored Teeth

  • Restore Function to a Tooth After a Root Canal

  • Cover and Seal Dental Implant

  • Cosmetic Modification to Enhance Smile Beauty

How Dental Crown Works

A complete dental crown treatment often requires two dental visits since many steps are involved in placing a crown over a natural tooth.

Step 1: Tooth Preparation

The first step is removing the outer portion of your tooth to have space to accommodate the crown. Decaying parts will be removed as needed, and additional core or filling may also be added should the crown need more support to be attached.

Step 2: Impression

An impression of your teeth will be taken so the dentist will have a model to make the crown. The impression can be made either through a mold or a digital scan of the tooth.

Step 3: Temporary a Crown

While preparing the permanent crown for you, you will be given a temporary crown to be worn for roughly less than two weeks. Take note that your tooth can be susceptible to hot and cold during this period. It would be best to keep away from chewing gum, eating sticky foods, and excessive and harsh bite or jaw movements on the side crown is prepared .

Step 4: Adjustments

Once your new crown is ready, it can then be placed over your tooth then the dentist will make the proper adjustments until ideal fit is achieved. Once you are happy and satisfied with its appearance and its feel in your mouth, the dentist can finally cement it securely in place.
