We create a crown that looks natural and fits comfortably in your mouth
A crown is a full coverage of your tooth.
It is made if a tooth or teeth have cavities that are too large for a filling, are too badly decayed, worn down or otherwise weakened or fractured to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
Advantages of crowns:
The crown restores the tooth to and function. The crown will protect the restored tooth.
The purpose of a crown is to bring back the health and function to make the tooth stronger and/or improve the way it looks by changing the color, the size or the shape
To decide on the material for your crown,
We consider the tooth location, the position of the gum tissue, your preference, the amount of tooth that shows when you smile, the color or shade of your tooth, and the function of your tooth.
Several steps are involved, and two dental visits are generally needed to complete the treatment.
First, we prepare the tooth by removing its outer portion so the crown will fit. Any decay is also removed. If an additional tooth structure is needed to support the crown, we may build up the core of the tooth.
Then an impression is made to provide an exact model for the crown.
And lastly you will get a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent crown to be ready—While you have the temporary crown, this tooth may be sensitive to hot and cold. Also, you should avoid chewing gum or sticky foods during this time.
At the second visit when the permanent crown is ready, we insert it, after you are satisfied with the fit and the aesthetic, we will cement it to your tooth.
