Do you have damaged and discolored teeth? Dental crowns restore the appearance of teeth and protect them from wear and tear. They are made of a durable material and fit in with other natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
There are multiple benefits to dental crowns:
- Strengthens teeth
- Protects weak teeth
- Restores the size and shape of teeth
- Enhances the appearance of teeth
Dental crowns can also be used to hold a filling, attach a dental bridge, or cover a dental implant.
Dental Crowns: What to Expect
The tooth receiving the dental crown will be prepared by removing any damaged or decayed structure. This creates a foundation for the placement of your crown. Dr. Hyder will then provide you with a temporary dental crown while the custom permanent restoration is being made. When complete, the permanent dental crown will be secured and polished for a natural look. Dental crowns cover cracked, chipped, and damaged teeth to improve not only their appearance but their function. This option makes it easier for patients to bite and chew.
Dental Crowns FAQs
How long do dental crowns last?
With the right dental care, dental crowns can last up to 30 years.
How do I care for my temporary dental crown?
Before the permanent restoration is ready, a temporary crown will be put in place. Avoid sticky and chewy foods that can pull at the crown. Slide flossing material out rather than up between teeth when flossing and minimize using the side of your mouth with the temporary crown.
Do dental crowns hurt?
The tooth or teeth receiving the dental crowns is numbed during the procedure for your comfort. You may feel tooth sensitivity after the procedure, but pain is minimal and shouldn’t last long.
