Dental Crowns Solve Dental Dilemmas

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in PhoenixA dental crown is a strong, natural-looking permanent tooth restoration that covers the top of the damaged tooth. Dentists use dental crowns to solve a number of dental dilemmas.

Crowns can remedy the following issues:

  • A fractured tooth with decay
  • A poorly-fitting existing crown
  • A decayed tooth that has lost a considerable amount of tooth structure
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that causes a bite problem

Before your dentist can attach the crown to your tooth, we must prepare the tooth. Dentists often administer a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain during the prepping.

Your dentist will remove decay, if any, and shape the tooth to receive the crown. Then a mold is taken of the prepped tooth and surrounding teeth.

A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth to protect it until you return to receive the permanent restoration. The patient needs to be wary while wearing the temporary crown. Vigorous brushing or flossing can displace the crown or damage the exposed soft tissue. The patient should also refrain from eating extremely hard foods like nuts or sticky candy.

The mold of your teeth is sent to a dental lab where your crown is created. Dental crowns are offered in three varieties: tooth-colored crowns made of resin or porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and solid metal crowns.

Each type has its benefits and drawbacks. Your dentist will choose the right crown material for your particular tooth.

What if you need a permanent dental restoration for both the top and root of your tooth? A permanent dental implant is your solution.
