How can dental crowns improve your smile and what lasting benefits do they provide? Continue reading on to see how dental crowns are a royal repair for your smile.
Dental crowns are provided to patients as a ‘cap’ for their individual tooth. They help teeth in a variety of ways, including the following:
To begin, your pediatric dentist will remove any decay or debris from the affected area. They will then shape the tooth to prepare it for the new restoration. A form of anesthetic will be provided to best avoid any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The pediatric dentist will take an impression or mold of the teeth and send it in to a lab to be created into a custom crown. A temporary crown will be placed until the permanent one is finished.
Take care of your dental crown as you would your own teeth. Regular brushing and flossing will ensure it lasts a long time and doesn’t trap food debris or bacteria. Frequent dental exams allow our team to check up on the state of the crown.
