A dental crown (or cap) encases the entire visible portion of the affected tooth, acting as an outer surface. A dental crown is used when a tooth is decayed or broken to such an extent that fillings are not enough to repair or cover the problem. Dental crowns functions as protective shell around the damaged or decayed tooth, improving or restoring its appearance and strengthen it.
Dental crowns come in different materials, the most common crowns typically have some mixture of porcelain in them for a natural-looking tooth. The first visit to your dentist at Smile Clinic involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and reshaping it for properly fit the crown. Then, an impressions will be taken, along with the color match for your teeth, and sent to the dental lab to create the crown. Depending on the case, the dentist may provide you with a temporary crown to cover your tooth in between visits. When you return, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced with the new permanent one. Before cementing the permanent crown in place, your dentist will ensure that the crown fits right and comfortably and matches the natural color of surrounding teeth.
