How Dental Crowns Can Restore Damaged Teeth
If you need to restore damaged teeth, you may be curious about what options are available to you through restorative dentistry. At BLUSH Dental Studio in East Point, Georgia, you can educate yourself further on the benefits of placing a ceramic dental crown.
Understanding how dental crowns can restore the smile
A consultation appointment is the first step in choosing this popular treatment option. Dental crowns are placed over the natural tooth structure, providing it with support and stability. In cases where the tooth is severely decayed or has suffered significant damage, a dental crown may be recommended to restore it to its original function and appearance. These restorations are made with customized colors of ceramic to address teeth that are:
- Permanently stained
- Chipped or cracked
- Severely decayed
- Weakened from root canal therapy
- Missing (when placed over a dental implant)
What can I expect when obtaining a ceramic crown?
The first step in this process is to schedule a consultation appointment at BLUSH Dental Studio. At this appointment, our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth and teeth to determine if quality dental crowns are the best option for you.
Once patients are ready to proceed, our dentists will numb the area around the tooth (or teeth) to be treated to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Once the numbing agent has taken effect, we will prepare the tooth (or teeth) by removing any decay and shaping the remaining structure. A temporary crown will then be placed. Once the tooth is prepared, we will create a mold and send it to our laboratory to fabricate the final crown.
Patients return when the crown is completed and it is bonded in place. We will ensure that it fits correctly and that you are happy with the color and shape before permanently bonding it. You will then be given aftercare instructions and can schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that your new dental restorations last as long as possible!
