What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are essentially strong, custom made caps which are made to cover your damaged tooth. They are manufactured with porcelain or composite materials in order to look and feel like your real teeth! If you have a broken down, fractured, or decayed tooth, Dr. Day may recommend a crown to protect the tooth.
How will a dental crown benefit me?
The ultimate goal of placing a dental crown is to preserve the tooth and prevent further damage or decay. Dr . Day aims at providing preventative care and takes an approach to help you maintain your natural teeth first instead of simply extracting them.
Dr. Day also frequently utilizes a dental crown in cosmetic cases to achieve that enhanced smile.
Some of the benefits:
How is it done?
Prior to placing a crown, Dr. Day must first prepare your regular tooth by removing all decay and reducing its size in order to make space for the crown to correctly cap and protect it. She might numb the area to reduce discomfort if necessary.
Dr. Day will then take impressions of your teeth to create a mold in order to get the dental crown to look and feel natural. After deciding on a shade to color match the dental crown to your natural teeth, she will send it off to the lab to be made.
Since the placement typically takes place over at least two office visits, Dr. Day will place a temporary restoration to protect the problem tooth while the lab is making your custom permanent crown.
