When the long-term health of a tooth becomes threatened by decay or a cavity, a dental crown will be used to encase the tooth. Dental crowns will completely cover the damaged tooth and protect it from further deterioration.
A dental crown is a prosthetic device that’s perfectly molded and often color-matched to your teeth. It’s affixed to an existing natural tooth or implant with dental-grade cement.
The procedure is completely safe and routine—our experts at Pleasure Dental in Royse City place dental crowns on a daily basis.
Permanent dental crowns require at least two visits to our office. During the initial consultation, restoration needs will be assessed. Your dentist will ensure that your tooth can withstand a crown, and they will start preparing it. A severely damaged, cracked, or completely broken tooth may require a filling in order to support a dental crown.
Preparation will involve either a filling or some filing down, and then your dentist will take a mold of the shape—this is called an impression. The impression is used to design your permanent crown.
Before a permanent crown is made and put in place, a temporary crown will be set. The temporary crown will protect the tooth in question until your permanent dental crown is ready. The permanent crown will be constructed by specialists in an off-site laboratory and usually takes about a week.
When you return to have your temporary dental crown removed, your dentist will carefully adhere the permanent crown to the prepared tooth. The process is swift and easy.
With your new permanent crown in place, it’s not unusual for it to feel a bit strange at first. In time, it will settle and start to feel like a normal tooth.
In the days following your dental crown procedure, try to avoid chewing on tough foods.
Your permanent dental crown requires the same high level of oral hygiene you’ve always been taught. Brushing and flossing regularly is key, as well as routine visits to our office. Our team at Pleasure Dental provides the best oral care, check-ups, and professional cleanings in Royse City.
