Porcelain dental crowns are one of the best ways to repair teeth that are severely decayed or damaged, resulting in a natural looking new tooth. A crown will help improve your overall “smile appearance” and can be beneficial to help strengthen your teeth as well.
What is the step-by-step process to a crown?
To start, we will schedule an initial consultation to discuss if a crown is the right solution for you and your smile. We will also examine your teeth at this visit. Our doctors and staff will explain everything in detail to ensure you are always comfortable and confident with our decision. If you decide to move forward, we will:
- take an impression of your current teeth.
- provide you with a temporary crown to wear leaving our office and until the permanent one is set.
- remove the temporary crown and clean all surrounding teeth thoroughly.
- place your permanent crown.
As always, your comfort and relaxation during our treatment is our priority, so if you are interested in learning more about our Sedation Dentistry offerings, we are happy to discuss those with you.
Your new crown should last for many years to come with proper care and maintenance. We recommend brushing twice daily and flossing and keeping up with your regularly scheduled cleaning at Mint Hill Dentistry.
