Do you have a damaged tooth, meaning a broken, decayed, discolored, worn-down, or chipped tooth? If so, your dentist, Dr. Scott Chandler, might recommend restoring that tooth with a dental crown. A dental crown is a strong restoration that can replace your tooth’s enamel and improve its health and function.
Dental crown treatment
Your dentist will start by numbing the mouth with a local anesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience during the appointment. Then, he will cut a portion of the tooth enamel from the tooth to create room for the crown. Next, he will make a dental model or take a picture of your tooth and will send it to a dental lab. At the lab, technicians will custom make your restoration. As you wait for the crown to be custom made for your smile, your dentist will cover the remainder of your tooth with a temporary crown.
Dental crown care
Your dental crown can last a lifetime—but only if you keep it in top-notch condition. If you practice good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, rinsing, and visiting your dentist, you’ll be on the right track toward having a long-lasting dental restoration.
