Dental Crowns Help You Feel Confident With A Healthy And Complete Smile
If you have damaged or badly decayed teeth, you may wonder if you have to get them pulled. Are there other options available? No one likes having missing teeth, as it’s embarrassing and can impact your oral health.
Fortunately, there are treatment options for damaged teeth. Dental crowns are an excellent example. With these high-quality restorations, you can regain your confidence and repair teeth without removing them.
A crown can support a tooth significantly damaged by decay, giving it a new surface and a fresh look. Crowns also protect a tooth that has been worn from further damage, can hold a cracked tooth together, and helps restore a natural look after a root canal. Dentists also use dental crowns to improve the appearance of misshapen or broken teeth.
How does it work?
The process to get a crown is simple and straightforward. First, your dentist will evaluate your dental needs and make sure that a crown is the best option for your situation. During your crown appointment, your tooth will be shaped and prepared for the crown. The dentist will make an impression of the tooth for your permanent crown.
Next, a temporary crown will be placed on your tooth to protect it while your permanent crown is made. After a few weeks, you’ll come back to have your permanent crown put in.
You can choose from a variety of materials for your crown. Many people want a tooth that looks as natural as possible and will opt for porcelain or ceramic crowns. There are also resin, metal, and combination options. You and your dentist will make the final decision.
