If you've ever wondered about those beautiful, natural-looking teeth that seem too perfect to be real, chances are they might have been enhanced with dental crowns. These versatile little wonders have revolutionized the world of dentistry, allowing individuals to regain confidence in their smiles and restore damaged or unsightly teeth.
It's important to note that getting dental crowns usually requires two separate appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the affected tooth by removing any decay or damage. They will then shape the tooth so that it can accommodate the crown. Next comes the exciting part - choosing a temporary crown while your permanent one is being crafted in a dental lab. This temporary crown will protect your prepared tooth until your next visit.
Once your permanent crown is ready, which typically takes about two weeks, you'll return for another appointment. Your dentist will remove the temporary crown and carefully place and adjust the new one. They'll ensure that it fits comfortably and looks natural alongside your other teeth.
Getting dental crowns is a relatively straightforward process. The duration of each appointment may vary depending on individual cases but generally lasts around an hour or two.
Dental crowns offer a wide range of benefits and are commonly used to address various dental issues.
