A crown restoration is a covering that encapsulates the entire tooth and restores it to its original shape and size. The purpose of this is to regain function on a tooth that cannot be successfully restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Reasons for Crowns:
- Root canal treated teeth
- Decay on teeth with large fillings without much natural tooth structure
- Broken or fractured teeth (above the gum line)
- Cosmetic enhancement
Preparation of Crown:
This procedure usually requires two appointments due to the laboratory made crown restoration. The first visit involves “preparing” the tooth for a mold to be taken and used to create a custom crown. Then a
custom temporary crown will be made to preserve the tooth.
The second appointment consists of removing the temporary crown and making sure that the permanent crown is a perfect fit, ensuring the bite and spacing is accurate, confirmed with an X-ray.
Home care instructions are regular dental visits are encouraged to check and monitor the condition of your new crown.
