A dental crown, commonly referred to as a "dental cap," is a cap that is formed like a tooth and is affixed permanently over a tooth to recover its strength, form, and look. To hold fragile or chipped teeth together and stop them from breaking further, crowns are utilised. They can also be used to join a bridge, support massive fillings, or conceal natural teeth that are crooked or discoloured. In some circumstances, dental implants themselves might be covered with crowns.
Installing a crown typically takes two dentist visits. We prep the tooth or implants for the crown during your initial visit. In order to produce the crown, we then take an imprint of the tooth and the gums around it. This impression is transported to a dental laboratory. Until the final crown is prepared, a temporary crown is placed over the tooth. In the second appointment, the temporary crown is taken off and the permanent crown is affixed to the tooth.
With good oral hygiene, crowns could endure even longer than the average lifespan of five to eight years. A crown can improve the look of your smile while strengthening your teeth.
Patients might require a dental crown for a variety of reasons, including:
While dental crowns can be an effective way of dealing with damaged, discoloured, or heavily filled teeth, they are not an effective replacement for teeth that are completely missing. In order to replace a missing tooth, a dental implant or dental bridge may be required.
We are accepting new patients, and are proud to offer dental crowns, dental bridges, and other cosmetic procedures. Our aim is to ensure that all of our patients are happy with their new and improved smile!
