Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a type of restoration made either of ceramic or gold. Dental crowns are made when a weakened tooth either due to extensive caries, multiple cracks, or root canal treatment that
needs protection and strength to last longer.

Dental crowns are also used to restore multiple missing teeth by using the adjacent teeth as abutments or connections to support multiple dental crowns which is also called a crown and bridge restoration.

What does getting a crown involve?

This takes significant skill by the dentist to remove the affected tooth structure and reshape the surface to accommodate a new dental crown. The procedure usually takes 2 dental appointments. The first appointment takes 90 minutes which involves tooth preparation followed by impression taking. The mold is sent to the laboratory for fabrication.

A temporary dental crown is cemented to protect the prepared tooth for a week or 2 till the permanent dental crown is finished.

On the second appointment takes 45 minutes, the crown will be carefully checked and cemented.
