What Does the Procedure Involve?
The procedure for getting dental crowns is generally completed in a few steps and only a couple of office visits. First, you’ll be numbed so you won’t feel anything during the procedure. Then, we’ll carefully remove a calculated portion of your tooth, shaving it down so that the crown will fit comfortably on top. We’ll also clear out any infected or damaged tissue in your tooth and remove any fillings that are loose or unstable.
Once the tooth has been trimmed and shaped, we’ll take a mold of the trimmed tooth to ensure the crown fits snugly and comfortably. A temporary crown will be put in place to protect your tooth and retain the aesthetic appearance of your smile while your permanent crown is being crafted. Once your crown is ready, you’ll come back in and we’ll permanently fix the crown to your tooth, restoring your smile. You can choose the shade and shape of your crown so that it matches your existing teeth and looks as natural as possible.
What Is a Crown For?
Dental crowns can be used for a myriad of reasons. Most often, porcelain crowns are used to strengthen and reinforce a tooth that’s been damaged structurally: chipped, cracked, or damaged. Crowns can also cover a tooth that has a large filling with little tooth remaining in order to provide more structural integrity.
Dental crowns are also often used as anchors for dental bridges, to restore the appearance of badly stained or broken teeth, and as attachments to posts for dental implants. They’re a dependable way to strengthen your teeth and restore their appearance if they’re stained or misshapen.
Benefits of Porcelain
All porcelain crowns provide you the benefit of giving you the most natural appearance available for crowns. With no visible metal and a color that’s naturally similar to the color of your existing teeth, porcelain crowns can be crafted to exactly match the shade and shape of your teeth, while allowing the natural color of your original tooth to show through. Since porcelain is mostly translucent and resembles the color of your natural teeth, there is no metal involved so your crown is virtually unnoticeable.
When you need porcelain crowns, you can depend upon the expert dentistry team at East Springs Dental in Louisville, KY, to do the job with a professional touch and a flawless finish. You’ll love the appearance of your corrected smile, and we’ll love how happy you’ll be about it.
