There are different reasons why a tooth can get damaged, making it lose shape or size. A damaged tooth can lead to various oral issues and loss of self-esteem. Most dentists have used different tooth restoration methods, such as dental crowns, to help fix tooth problems. Fairmount Dental Center has a reliable and dedicated team of dentists that strive to offer our clients high-quality dental services. Our qualified personnel will examine our clients' dental situation before recommending the most appropriate treatment.
A dental crown refers to a cap that covers the whole tooth surface. It helps strengthen structurally compromised or cracked teeth, restore the discolored tooth, and provide a poorly shaped filling with a cover. Dental crowns help improve the tooth's function and appearance by offering support and protection where necessary. Besides providing cover for decayed or damaged teeth, they also help fill the gaps left by the missing tooth.
Placing dental crowns requires up to two dental appointments. Our dentist will examine your dental situation on the first visit by doing an x-ray scan. After that, the tooth is prepared by contouring and reshaping depending on the dental crown to be installed.
The second visit takes place after two to three weeks. During this visit, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent crown. Our dentists will ensure the shade of the dental crown matches your real teeth and that it will fit well. Our dentists will use local anesthesia to help prevent pain or discomfort. Local anesthesia helps in numbing the tooth area to be treated.
Benefits of Ceramic Crowns
Ceramic crowns are known to be very strong and durable. They can withstand the pressure and rigors of daily chewing, drinking, and speaking. The ceramic crowns are made and designed to function and look just like the natural tooth. Their design and appearance make them blend seamlessly with your other teeth.
Ceramic crowns are well-designed to complement the patient's facial aesthetics and natural bite. Some patients are allergic to metal crowns. This is never an issue with ceramic crowns since it will be difficult for patients to notice their presence.
