What are Dental Crowns?
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
The process of getting a dental crown typically involves the following steps:
Evaluation and Preparation: Your dentist will evaluate the affected tooth, assess its condition, and determine if a crown is the appropriate treatment. If so, they will prepare the tooth by removing any decayed or damaged portions, and shaping the remaining tooth structure to accommodate the crown.
Impression or Digital Scan: An impression or digital scan of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth will be taken. This impression will be used as a model to create a custom-made crown that fits perfectly.
Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown may be placed over the prepared tooth to protect it and maintain aesthetics.
Crown Placement: Once your permanent crown is ready, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and carefully place the permanent crown onto the tooth. They will ensure a proper fit, check your bite, and make any necessary adjustments for optimal comfort and functionality.
Bonding: The final step involves bonding the crown to your tooth using dental cement. The crown is securely placed, providing long-lasting support and protection to the tooth.
