Elevate your smile with our premium dental crown solutions at Dental Spa of Artesia.
Dental crowns, also known as dental caps or tooth crowns, are custom-made dental restorations that cover and encase a damaged or weakened tooth. They are designed to restore the tooth’s strength, shape, size, and appearance, while also improving its overall function. Dental crowns are often used to address a variety of dental issues, including extensive decay, fractured or broken teeth, root canal treatment, cosmetic enhancement, support for dental bridges.
The process of getting a dental crown typically involves:
Tooth Preparation: The dentist prepares the damaged tooth by removing any decayed or damaged portions and shaping it to accommodate the crown.
Impression: An impression of the prepared tooth is taken, which serves as a model for creating the custom crown.
Temporary Crown: While the permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental lab, a temporary crown is placed on the tooth to protect it.
Permanent Crown Placement: Once the permanent crown is ready, it is placed on the tooth using dental cement. The dentist ensures a proper fit, bite, and appearance.
Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of materials. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, the patient’s preferences, and the dentist’s recommendations. Overall, dental crowns play a crucial role in preserving and restoring the health and function of damaged teeth, while also enhancing the smile’s appearance.
