At Premier Dental of New Albany, we understand the importance of maintaining good dental health, and sometimes that means needing dental crowns.
Dental crowns are a popular dental restoration option that can help improve the appearance, function, and overall health of your teeth. A dental crown is a cap that is placed over an existing tooth or dental implant to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance.
At Premier Dental of New Albany, our experienced dental professionals use dental crowns to treat a variety of dental problems, such as tooth decay, broken or cracked teeth, worn-down teeth, and misshapen teeth. Crowns are also used to strengthen and protect teeth after a root canal procedure or a dental implant placement.
Crowns can be made from different materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials. Each material has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, and the type of crown that is best for you will depend on your specific needs and preferences.
Porcelain and ceramic crowns are popular choices because they closely resemble natural teeth and are highly durable. They are also resistant to staining and can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth.
Metal crowns are another option that is highly durable and can withstand strong biting forces. They are typically used for back teeth that are not visible when you smile, as they may not blend in as well with your natural teeth.
During the dental crown procedure, your dentist will first prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping it to accommodate the crown. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken, and a temporary crown may be placed to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is being made.
Once the permanent crown is ready, it will be cemented onto the tooth or implant using dental cement. Your dentist will make sure that the crown fits properly and feels comfortable before finishing the procedure.
With proper care, crowns can last for many years, and they can help restore your smile and improve your oral health. If you are interested in dental crowns or would like to learn more about your dental restoration options, schedule a consultation with Premier Dental of New Albany today. Our experienced dental professionals are dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that you can be proud of.
