Dental crowns are ceramic restorations used for various restorative and cosmetic purposes. They resemble a natural tooth in external appearance but are hollow on the inside. This gives a provision to place them on natural teeth that are damaged, weak, or worn out to cover them entirely.
Crowns can be used to restore teeth in the following conditions:
The dentist would thoroughly diagnose your tooth and determine the best means to treat the condition. Once your candidacy for crowns is confirmed, we will prepare the tooth. It will be cleaned thoroughly, and a thin layer of enamel will be removed to make space for the restoration. We will then take x-rays and scans of the tooth, and the data obtained from the images will be used as a reference for fabricating it. While the crown gets fabricated in the dental laboratory, we will bond a temporary crown to your tooth.
Once the crown is fabricated, we will schedule a follow-up session. We will remove the temporary crown and clean the teeth thoroughly. The tooth receiving the crown will be roughened using an etching liquid. We will then bond the crown to it using photosensitive dental adhesives and harden it using a curing light. Finally, it will be polished to give it the right luster, and a bite test will be conducted.
