What are the Steps to getting a Crown?
Dr. Claudio Miro
The first steps involve preparing the tooth and the crown. To make the crown, the dentist needs impressions of the tooth and the tooth also needs to be reshaped so that the crown fits over the tooth. Impressions of the other teeth will also be made so that the crown is designed and shaped perfectly to fit in your mouth.
Once the crown is made and approved by the dentist the placement process begins. The temporary crown is remove and local anesthesia is administered to the area. Then the crown will be cemented permanently in place.
Why Do I Need a Crown?
Dr. Claudio Miro
Porcelain crowns or ceramic crowns could be great options for you, if you are looking to restore the external functionality and look of your tooth.
Protect a weak tooth in the case that it has been affected by decay. If a cavity spreads to a large portion of the inside of the tooth, the tooth structure can become weak and to prevent further damage a crown can be used to reinforce the tooth.
Restore a tooth that is severely worn down or even potentially broken. If you haven’t lost the tooth, but it has suffered damage, a crown can again be used to reinforce the structure of the tooth and prevent you from losing the tooth altogether.
Beautify your teeth. There are many cosmetic reasons, ranging from misshapen teeth to discolored teeth that crowns can fix because of its natural appearance. It is also used in the case that you have replaced your tooth with a dental implant and need a cover for the top portion.
