Dental crowns are top-notch restorations that can help your teeth, smile and oral health in many ways. If you’re interested in this treatment, you probably have many questions. To help you find the answers you’re looking for, our dentist, Dr. Reeve Abraben, is happy to provide the answers to commonly asked questions, like:
Q: What are dental crowns?
A: They are tooth-shaped caps that are typically made of porcelain. They are crafted to fit perfectly over your teeth and they are made in our dental lab. They can restore the beauty, health and function of your teeth.
Q: What is the treatment process?
A: First, your dentist will numb the mouth and trim the tooth enamel of the treated tooth. Second, he will make impressions of the smile and will send those impressions to our lab technicians who will craft your new crown. Third, your dentist will place a temporary crown over the tooth while you wait. Fourth, he will remove the temporary crown and cement the new crown into place once the permanent crown is ready.
Q: What can a dental crown do for me?
A: It could restore a severely decayed, weak or broken tooth tooth. A crown can also cover a tooth that has a large filling, complete a root canal treatment, improve the appearance of an unattractive tooth, hold together a cracked tooth and more.
