What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are meant to treat individual teeth that are badly decayed, injured, weakened, or cosmetically imperfect. The restoration (also known as a “cap”) covers the natural crown and protects it from further harm, all while providing a suitable and attractive replacement on top that functions just like the original. Crowns are also used to treat teeth that have been cared for with root canal therapy and restore single dental implants.
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
Getting a dental crown is an easy process that typically only takes about two appointments. First, we’ll clean the tooth and make room for the crown by removing a small amount of enamel. Impressions of the area will be taken and sent to a local dental laboratory, where they will be used as blueprints for your final restoration. In the meantime, we’ll send you home with a temporary dental crown to keep your tooth safe and comfortable until your next appointment. In about two weeks, you’ll return to our office to have the temporary restoration removed and your beautiful, custom-made dental crown cemented into place.
