Dental Crowns – What Are They?
A crown is a prosthetic tooth that is used to replace a natural tooth in your mouth if it is crooked, weak, broken, chipped, misshapen, or discolored. They protect teeth from damage as well as further trauma that can be caused by playing sports, grinding your teeth, or any other activity that affects your teeth. They may be made of several materials, such as composite resin, gold, porcelain and metal, or ceramic.
How Are Crowns Used?
A dental crown can be used both to restore the function of teeth as well as their beauty. If a tooth has been weakened, cracked, or broken due to an injury or any other issue, your dentist may recommend a crown. Crowns protect these teeth from trauma by creating a barrier between your other teeth and any plaque that may cause decay. Cosmetically, crowns are used to replace discolored, misshapen, or crooked teeth in the mouth. No matter what the reason for a crown is, your smile will be transformed and look more beautiful than ever before.
How Is A Crown Applied?
Your dentist will first need to prepare the tooth by cleaning it and getting rid of some enamel. Once the enamel has been removed, an impression of the tooth will be taken by your dentist in order to create a customized replacement crown. When the crown has been created, it will be fitted and adjusted so that it fits comfortably and securely onto the tooth. After everything has been properly fitted, the crown will be cemented onto the tooth and you will be able to enjoy your new smile.
