Dentistry is a form of art just as a science; dental crowns offer an ideal illustration of this. A dental crown or “cap” is a covering that fits over a harmed, rotted, or broken tooth. It can even replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is a fantastic method to supplant missing teeth. Crowns are synthetic caps, generally made of a material like porcelain, put on the highest point of a tooth. A crown totally covers a tooth over the gum line.
A crown procedure typically requires two appointments. Your first appointment will incorporate taking a few exact molds (or impressions) that will be utilized to make your custom crown. A shape will be utilized to make a temporary crown which will remain on your tooth for around fourteen days until your new crown is manufactured by the dental laboratory. Your temporary crown will be put with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to guarantee you are chewing appropriately. At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be taken out, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully positioned to guarantee the spacing and bite are exact. You will be given care instructions and would require dental visits to check up on your new crown.
