A dental crown is a tooth cap that encases the visible portion of the tooth. It acts as a cover that protects a weak tooth, covers a dental bridge or implant, or enhances the appearance of a discolored tooth. Dental crowns may be temporary or permanent and may be made from metals, resin, ceramic, or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Carlyle Dental offers dental crowns to residents of Goldsboro, NC.
Dental Crowns Procedure
The placement of a dental crown has two stages. During the first visit, the tooth will be filed to make room for the crown. The impression of this reshaped tooth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory to create the dental crown. A temporary crown will be fitted to protect the tooth in the meantime.
During the second visit, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown will be fitted. Its size and color will be checked against those of the other teeth. Once everything is set, the permanent crown is cemented into place.
Dental Crowns Results
A dental crown effectively protects and supports a tooth weakened by decay. It also enhances the appearance of a tooth and holds a dental bridge in place. Dental crowns do not need any special care, but to protect the covered tooth from decay and infections, good oral hygiene must always be practiced.
