What are dental crowns?
Unlike those in regal settings, dental crowns are used in dentistry to restore the function and aesthetics of a tooth that has lost a significant amount of structure. Damaged teeth can tarnish even the most beautiful smile, leaving patients feeling self-conscious.
There are several reasons Dr. VandenBrink may present a crown as the right restorative option for you:
- To protect a weak tooth or teeth.
- To restore a previously-broken or damaged tooth.
- To support/cover a tooth with a large filling, when most of the tooth is gone.
- To make cosmetic modifications.
What is involved in preparing for a crown?
Dental Crown Technology
Upon the completion of the oral hygiene portion of your treatment, you will then be scheduled for a prep appointment. At this visit, your tooth impression is taken, a shade is picked for the tooth and then this is sent to our trusted lab to create the crown. Our Doctors or their team members will create a temporary crown for you so that you can continue to smile and eat as before.
An appointment two weeks later is made, and once the best fit is ensured, Dr. VandenBrink will cement your new crown in place, and your tooth will be fully restored to fit and function. The doctors will then make any necessary adjustments to ensure it not only fits well, but that you’re happy with the aesthetics.
