Dental crowns are usually recommended when a tooth breaks or requires a large filling that puts it in danger of breaking. The process of receiving a dental crown involves two appointments.
In the first appointment, an impression of the prepared tooth will be taken and a temporary crown will be placed. The impression will be sent to a dental lab so that the crown can be created to fit your tooth perfectly. In the second appointment, a dentist will fit and permanently cement your unique dental crown.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are a beneficial treatment because they are:
· Long-lasting: Dental crowns are comprised of strong, attractive materials. If you take care of them by brushing and flossing regularly and visiting the dentist every six months or so, your dental crowns may last between 15 and 30 years.
· Natural-looking: Nobody will ever know you are wearing dental crowns because they resemble the look of natural teeth. In addition to looking like natural teeth, they feel like them.
· Comfortable: Compared to full or partial dentures, crowns offer extreme comfort. They are stable and do not cause any gum irritation.
· Do not affect speech: You don’t have to worry about speaking strangely with crowns. They are designed in a way that will allow you to speak in confidence.
