So, you have a cracked tooth? Now that you have lost a significant structure, will you lose your tooth? Not so fast! There is a small yet excellent restoration offered at Cooper Dental Group in Ormond Beach, Florida, called a dental crown or cap. This restoration covers your entire tooth to restore and protect it from further damage.
Suspect your tooth could use a dental crown? Drs. Adam Tow, Ankit Parikh, and Nicky Masoodi evaluate decayed or damaged teeth for ceramic dental crowns. Could yours qualify?
A dental crown has been around for decades. In fact, studies show that crowns were used as early as the 1880s. Since then, technology has tremendously improved the materials and techniques used to place crowns. Modern crowns are more natural-looking than ever and only need two appointments to place.
Has your dentist recommended a dental crown? Dental crowns are a marvel in dentistry, with many uses in restorative and cosmetic dental care. Your dentist may have suggested a dental crown to offer the functions below.
Before getting a dental crown, the dentist inspects your tooth to determine how much healthy structure is left above the gum line. We’ll also use digital x-rays to examine the state of the roots and the surrounding structures. If your tooth is salvageable with a dental crown, we’ll proceed with tooth preparation.
After numbing your tooth with a local anesthetic, we’ll remove the decayed/damaged portion of the tooth and reshape the remaining structure to accommodate a crown. Then, we’ll take impressions of the prepped tooth to be used by our partner lab to fabricate your customized crown. Before your crown is ready, we’ll temporarily restore your tooth to protect it from injury and infections.
When you return to our office for the second appointment, you can be sure to go home with a permanent restoration. We’ll remove the provisional crown, clean your tooth, and try your new restoration. Most crowns fit perfectly right away, but our dentists will take the time to confirm the fit and look of your crown to ensure your smile looks and feels natural.
If you want a dental crown that won’t attract negative attention, consider all ceramic crowns from our office. Non-metal crowns are a remarkable breakthrough in dentistry, offering durable and natural-looking results.
Ceramic dental crowns offer numerous benefits, including:
Dental crowns also last many years, but you must care for them diligently. Brushing, flossing, and oral rinsing keep the crown site healthy, preventing gum disease and keeping the tooth underneath decay-free. Furthermore, don’t skip semi-annual dental appointments. They help the dentist examine the state of your restoration to keep them in perfect condition.
