What are ceramic dental crowns?
If you seek a quality dentist who offers natural-looking crowns, the team at Modern Dental Studio can assist you! Dental crowns are ceramic caps for teeth. They are custom-made for the patient to cover a natural tooth. This may be done for a number of reasons. Some patients have dental crowns placed over teeth that are cracked, chipped, or significantly damaged. The crown adds an extra layer of strength and protects the tooth from further breakage. This is also the case for teeth that have had root canal therapy. Endodontic therapy can cause a tooth to become weak and brittle so that a dental crown will protect it. Alternatively, dental crowns may also be used to create a dental bridge or to cover a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. This versatility makes dental crowns a standard restoration used in most dental facilities.
What can I expect during my upcoming dental crown appointment?
First, patients consult with Dr. Shetty to determine if they need a dental crown. Then, the tooth being covered with the crown is prepared by removing natural tooth enamel from around the tooth. Impressions are created and sent to a dental laboratory while a temporary crown is bonded. Within a week or two, the final restoration is completed, and patients return to have the temporary removed and the permanent crown bonded over the natural tooth structure.
