If you aren’t familiar with what dental crowns are, they’re simply a corrective form of dental treatment. Dental crowns are individual tooth-like structures that are positioned on top and around your damaged tooth, making it look healthier while protecting it from worsening even further. This means that they can be used for both cosmetic and regenerative purposes.
Porcelain and ceramic crowns look very similar to natural teeth, making them perfect for a cosmetic-oriented solution. Putting in a dental crown usually requires two visits to the dentist. The first visit is focused around preparation, which involves getting rid of decay and forming a mold for your permanent dental crown to be created. In the mean time, a temporary crown will be placed around the affected tooth, marking the completion of your first visit. The second visit is to replace the temporary dental crown with the finished permanent crown by sealing it it into place with dental cement.
If making two visits to the dentist is far too troublesome for your busy schedule, that’s perfectly fine because technology has made it possible for the entire process to be completed in just one single visit. Digital scanning technology aids the dentist in making a highly accurate impression of your tooth. The impression is then used by a separate machine to develop your permanent dental crown almost instantly. Dental crowns made with this type of technology are better in terms of comfort, strength, durability, and aesthetics.
After your crown’s been firmly set in place, you need to be sure that it’s properly maintained. If you’re thinking that you need some kind of special dental appliance to keep it clean, you’ll be surprised to know you don’t. Maintaining your dental crown is in fact, no different from cleaning your teeth. Brushing your teeth and flossing are all it takes to preserve the quality of your new dental crown for years to come. It’s also recommended for you to schedule regular dental appointments to monitor its condition, and perform regular cleanings.
