What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is customized cap-like structure that is intended to fit over the biting surface of your tooth above the gumline. It can be made from many different types of materials, including gold, ceramic, and porcelain. Typically, this type of restoration is recommended if you have any of the following:
- Severely decayed tooth with a large filling
- Broken tooth that needs extra support
- Tooth that has just received root canal therapy
- Dental implant
- Bridge that needs support for the adjacent teeth
- Tooth that is severely misshapen or discolored
The Dental Crown Process
Getting a dental crown placed usually happens over the course of several appointments in order to give you the best possible result. First, Dr. Condie will examine your smile to confirm that a dental crown in Gilbert would be a good option for you. In order to prepare your tooth for the crown, a thin layer of your protective enamel will be removed to make room. An impression will be taken of your tooth and the gumline and sent off to a dental laboratory where your restoration will be made. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary crown to keep your tooth safe.
You will receive a call back from the office as soon as your crown is ready. Your temporary crown will be removed and replaced with your permanent one. Lastly, the Desert Springs Dental team will show you the best way to care for your dental crown so it will last as long as possible.
