If you are dissatisfied with an imperfect smile, there are plenty of ways by which you can improve the appearance of your teeth. Dental crowns can be used to correct damage to the tooth’s enamel and hide its impairment. These artificial restorations offer a long-lasting solution for major dental problems and usually last for twenty to thirty years. At Louie Family Dentistry, we provide patients with superior-quality crowns that can restore the smile aesthetics and function of the tooth.
Not every damaged tooth requires a full dental crown to restore it; some can be reinstated with cosmetic contouring or dental bonding. However, there are many instances when capping your tooth with a dental crown is the best solution, such as:
The dental crown procedure can be accomplished in two appointments. During the first visit, X-rays of your mouth will be taken to get a clear image of both the tooth and the surrounding bone. In case there is tooth decay or infection, a root canal may have to be performed.
Next, we will reshape the affected tooth. Once that has been done, an impression will be taken to create a precise mold of your mouth. A porcelain or ceramic dental crown is made to match the exact dimensions of your natural teeth. If necessary, a temporary crown can be worn while the permanent one is being made. Once the crown is ready, it will be attached to the affected tooth and secured in place.
