Dental crowns strengthen and restore damaged teeth to improve the overall look of your teeth.
Dental Crown Consultation
During your consultation, your dentist will be able to tell you how many crowns are needed to correct the damage. If the level of damage is not too severe, your tooth can be saved using a dental crown.
Before you are fitted with your new crown your dentist will make an impression of your damaged tooth or teeth. The impression will then need to be sent off to a lab. Dental crowns are molded from the impression and typically come in porcelain or metal. This can take a couple of weeks so your dentist may fit you with a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent crown to come back from the lab.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown acts as a cap to cover a tooth that has been compromised by decay or can even fully replace a tooth down to the gum. It is then cemented into place. Metal crowns are more affordable than porcelain crowns. Many people choose metal crowns if the dental work is not visible because they are more economically priced.
If you choose a porcelain tooth an experienced cosmetic dentist can match the size and color of the rest of your teeth, so no one will know you have a crown.
