Dental crowns offer full-scale restoration for teeth that suffer from damage or decay. The exact results of a clean and proper restoration require hands-on experience and an artistic element for a fuller smile. Crowns and bridges work well to restore teeth aesthetics allowing them to regain full strength and function.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are designed to fully cover the shape of your teeth above the gum line offering maximum safety and comfort. Crowns are recommended when the damage has covered a full length of the tooth restoring to its proper function and giving patients the freedom to smile better.
Crowns are generally crafted by using porcelain material. Other materials include porcelain-fused-to-gold, all-porcelain, zirconia, or even ceramics.
Your restoration is designed by taking impressions of teeth. These impressions will represent model structures to prepare and plan your customized crowns.
The patient would have to wear temporary crowns until their original and custom-made crowns are ready. The process is easy, and we'd ensure that the patient experiences maximum comfort during any procedure with us.
What is the procedure involved?
Your existing teeth would be prepared to receive the new crown. Digital images would be sent to labs where the custom crown would be molded and designed. Until your permanent crowns are ready, your dentist would place a temporary one to ease and comfort the damaged tooth structures beneath it. Soon after, your temporaries would be removed, and the permanent crown would be placed.
