Cosmetic Dentistry - About Porcelain Crowns A crown is a special covering or cap that encases an entire tooth surface. It will help restore the original shape and size of a broken or chipped tooth. A crown is usually used to strengthen a tooth structure, which cannot be restored with any other type of restoration procedure such as a filling. Even though there are many types of dental crowns out there, the porcelain crown is the most popular. This is because they resemble the natural size and color of your teeth. They are quite durable, but like any other dental restoration, a crown may eventually need to be replaced. Untreated dental issues may lead to numerous other problems in the long run. Some of the problems include bite anomalies, jaw pain and headaches. Porcelain crowns are manufactured to the exact measurements of your natural teeth. This will definitely offer you a long-lasting beautiful smile. Why Do You Require A Dental Crown?

Need A Dental Crown Linwood NJ, 08221 How Does The Procedure Work? You will have to schedule at least two appointments for the procedure of a dental crown. During the first visit, your dentist will take several impressions of your teeth. This will be used to create a custom crown for you. Your dentist will create a temporary crown which will be fixed on your tooth for about two weeks until the permanent crown is manufactured in a dental laboratory. While your tooth is numb, the dentist will remove any decay and shape the tooth to fit the crown. Then, the temporary crown will be placed using temporary cement. The dentist will check your bite to ensure that you are biting properly. During the second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and the tooth will be cleaned. The new crown will be carefully fixed, and the dentist will ensure that the bite and spacing are accurate. You will receive instructions on how to care for the crown.
