How Dental Crown Can Restore Your Teeth’s Look and Function
Is tooth decay, discolored teeth or cracked teeth keeping you from smiling bright like you once did? A dental crown might just be what you need to restore your oral health, prevent further damage and most importantly restore your smile.
So what exactly is a dental crown?
It’s a tooth shaped cap meant to be placed over your tooth and cover it. Dental crowns restore the shape, size, strength, and aesthetic beauty of your damaged or decaying teeth.
The aptly named dental crown can restore function to your decaying or damaged teeth. The good people of Charlotte are getting dental crowns installed for various other benefits as well. Let’s go through some of them.
- Prevents decay weakened teeth from breaking by holding together parts vulnerable to breakage.
- Restores the look and function to an already broken tooth or a worn down tooth.
- When there aren’t many tooth left to support a large filling, dental crowns cover and protect the tooth with filling.
- Dental crowns can hold a dental bridge in place correctly.
- Can cover dental implants
- Can improve your teeth’s cosmetic situation greatly.
How Dental Crown Installation is carried out
When you visit your local dentist in Charlotte for consultation and happen to require a dental crown, the dentist will take some X-rays to inspect the roots of the tooth which are to receive the dental crowns. This will reveal any extensive tooth decay or risk of infection or injury to the tooth’s pulp, in which case a root canal may first be performed.
Our highly skilled and qualified doctors in the Charlotte clinic will begin by numbing the targeted area with anesthesia and begin to file down the tooth so the crown can fit perfectly. If there is loss of tooth, build up material might be used to support the crown. After shaping the tooth, dental putty will be used to get an impression of the affected area along with both upper and lower teeth to make sure that the crown won’t affect your bite. This impression is then sent to the dental lab where the crown is created. After the crown comes back to your dentist’s office, it will be colored to match the shade of the adjacent teeth. The dentist will also make you a temporary crown to protect your teeth until the second appointment.
At the second appointment the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown will be placed to see if it fits perfectly. If its shape is specific to the target area, the crown will be permanently cemented.
