Dental Crown Services
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your teeth? Are your teeth weak, cracked or maybe misshapen? Crowns may be the solution for your problem. If you’re seeking dental crowns, Gentle Dental Care can help.
We provide dental crown services for people who need cosmetic dentistry. Crowns are also a part of the root canal procedure. Crowns are used to reinforce the tooth to ensure it’s strong enough to withstand the everyday wear and tear.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap that your dentist will place over your tooth after it’s been damaged. Crowns serve as a cover to protect your tooth and restore its appearance to its natural state. Crowns are made to look just like your natural teeth, so no one can tell when you have a crown.
What’s the Difference Between a Crown and Veneer?
A dental crown is a cap that is placed over the entire tooth, while a dental veneer is a cover that is put on the front of the tooth.
Are Dental Crowns Permanent?
Yes, dental crowns are permanent. They are permanently affixed to your teeth with a special dental cement.
Dental Crown Procedure
Before the crown can be installed, the surface layer is prepared by the dentist. Next, the dentist will make an impression of your tooth, to be sent to a lab. The crown will be made at the lab and customized to your bite to ensure that it fits perfectly in your mouth.
Your dentist will put a temporary crown on your tooth to keep it protected until the crown arrives at the dentist office. The dentist will also match the color of your teeth to the color of the crown, so your crown will look just like your natural teeth.
Once the final crown arrives, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent crown on your teeth. The crown will be cemented into place, and will be adjusted to match your natural bite.
