Our teeth weaken and become more prone to issues including decay, cracking, discolouration, and others over time. Crowns can help you restore your smile if you feel it has lost some of its former luster. In order to prevent further issues with the tooth, a crown may be required if your dentist discovers that a tooth is decaying or appears weak or fractured. A filling or bonding won't be adequate in this situation.
Porcelain, porcelain bonded to metal, or a whole gold crown can all be used to create crowns. A porcelain finished crown is ideal for maintaining a natural look and feel since it may be matched to the color of your remaining teeth. As a result, it will be able to blend in and seem exactly like one of your natural teeth.
A crown installation procedure necessitates two to three dental visits. To prepare the tooth for the crown, the enamel will be filed down at the initial session. Before this stage of the surgery, a local anesthetic will be administered to you to ensure your comfort. A mold of the tooth and the neighboring teeth will be made after the tooth has been altered. A dental lab will use this mold to manufacture your new crown, ensuring that it fits in the space that has been produced for it and resembles the neighboring teeth. Before leaving, your dentist will fit you with a temporary crown until your permanent crown is ready.
Returning the crown to your dentist typically takes two to three weeks. You will then schedule a second appointment to install and fit the permanent crown. Once more, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area, and a cement will be used to secure the tooth in place. You'll recognize your previous smile when you look in the mirror. Crowns are strong and typically survive for 10 to 15 years. It needs to be taken care of with the same regular cleaning and flossing as you would any other tooth.
