Dental Crowns: Restoring Your Smile and Oral Health
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are prosthetic devices that cover the entire surface of a damaged tooth to restore its function and appearance. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.
When Are Dental Crowns Needed?
Dental crowns are typically recommended for teeth that are significantly damaged or weakened due to decay, trauma, or previous dental work. They may also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth or to protect teeth following a root canal procedure.
The Dental Crown Procedure
The dental crown procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Step 1: Diagnosis and Treatment Planning: Your dentist will assess the condition of your tooth and determine whether a dental crown is the best option for you.
- Step 2: Tooth Preparation: The affected tooth will be prepared by removing any decay or damage and reshaping it to accommodate the dental crown.
- Step 3: Impression: An impression of your teeth will be taken to create a custom-fit dental crown.
- Step 4: Temporary Crown: A temporary crown may be placed over the affected tooth while your permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental laboratory.
- Step 5: Crown Placement: Once your permanent crown is ready, it will be cemented onto your tooth to restore its function and appearance.
