What To Expect From A Dental Crown

What To Expect From A Dental Crown

Are you self conscience over your yellow or totally stained tooth? Do you have a weak tooth that needs support? Maybe you are simply yearning for a new, fresher smile. Your dentist at Exceptional Dentistry may recommend a dental crown treatment for your teeth. What does a dental crown treatment involve and what can you except?

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials. Porcelain, ceramic, resin, and stainless steel can all be used. Typically, our dentists recommend using porcelain or ceramic since the outcome looks and feels more natural. Talk to your dentist about the benefits and disadvantages of each of these materials. We will help to choose what’s best for you!

What can you expect during a dental crown treatment?

Your dental crown treatment will take only two visits to our dental office. For your first appointment, your dentist will make sure your teeth and gums are strong and healthy enough for the treatment. Your dentist will then prepare your tooth for the crown by creating a mold of your teeth for a custom crown. They will then place a temporary dental crown to prepare your tooth. During the next visit to our office, your custom crown will be fitted and our dentist will make sure it fits comfortably. They will then bond it to the tooth.

It may take some time for your mouth to get used to the new, foreign object residing inside of it. Allow yourself a few days to get used to the new feeling. Let your dentist at Exceptional Dentistry know if you experience any discomfort from your new dental crown in the months after your treatment. We are confident you will be in love with your new and improved smile! Call us today to schedule an appointment!
