Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” placed over teeth that have suffered significant damage or decay. They protect, cover, and restore the shape of teeth when fillings can’t solve the problem. Designed meticulously for each patient, they could simulate natural aesthetics, ensuring seamless integration with remaining teeth.  

The Role of Dental Crowns in Restorative Dentistry

Dental crowns are a cornerstone solution in restorative dentistry. They could rehabilitate weaker tooth structures and compromised appearance. Each custom-made crown we place works to provide sturdy support to damaged teeth while restoring their original form. Thus, patients can often enjoy life without any limitations from weakened biting or chewing capacity.  

The Process for Getting a Dental Crown 

When getting a dental crown, you’ll start with a comprehensive exam. A thorough look at your dental health can help your dentist provide the best treatment for your situation. If a dental crown is the best option, your dentist will prepare the tooth using a drill to remove a portion of the enamel. This ensures there’s room in your bite for your new crown.

Next, your dentist will take an impression of your bite. This is used to create models that will help fabricate your crown. It can take a few weeks for your permanent crown to be made. So, your dentist will fit you with a temporary crown to protect your tooth while you wait.

Exploring Other Restorative Dentistry Options 

While dental crowns can work wonders in turning back the clock on oral health, other solutions exist, such as fillings for rectifying smaller cavities. If you need an extraction, bridges and implants are excellent options to help restore your bite and smile.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry 

Restorative dentistry can revive weakened tooth function and significantly uplift aesthetics. Depending on the restorative treatment you need, you could experience greater freedom in your diet and daily activities while maintaining a complete smile.
