Teeth are an important part when it comes to making a great first impression. Who doesn’t like to have pearl-white, healthy teeth, right? But not all are lucky.  

Looking for a teeth makeover? Dental crowns may be the best solution for your needs.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made shell that looks and functions like natural teeth. It is made of porcelain, metal, resin, or other materials. Crowns can restore dental imperfections like decayed or discolored teeth. In simpler terms, a dental crown is like a cap that can protect teeth and clench them together. It can help:

  • Protect decayed, fractured, or chipped teeth. 
  • Conserve the tooth that has gone through a root canal treatment.
  • Reshape discolored or poorly shaped teeth.
  • Fix bite issues which may then improve chewing ability and speech.

Advantages of Dental Crown

So, why dental crowns? Let’s see in detail:

  • They improve the teeth’s appearance.
  • They can save severely damaged teeth.
  • Compared to other cosmetic treatments, crowns are a more durable and stronger option.
  • They need less recovery time.
  • They are relatively permanent so they don’t need to be removed for cleaning as dentures do.

Dental Crown Procedure

The dental crown procedure is the best way to prevent the total loss of teeth. You may need to take two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will inspect the teeth that the crowns are presumed to cover and make sure that the crowns fit and shave the teeth down in preparation for the crown then an impression is taken then sent to the laboratory. 

Also, the dentist will note the color that matches the exact shade of your natural teeth. Your dentist will provide a temporary crown until you come back for the final fitting of the new crown. 

On the next visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and put the permanent crown in that place. It is molded especially for your mouth so that you cannot experience any discomfort.

Dental Crown Aftercare

  • To make your crowns last longer, you should:
  • Avoid chewing and sticky food.
  • Brush and floss your teeth carefully.
  • Rinse your mouth with warm water mixed with salt during the week.
  • If you feel any discomfort after the procedure, take some pain relievers.
  • Avoid biting hard foods because crowns are not as strong as your permanent teeth.
