Dental Crowns Solve Dental Dilemmas

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in CharlotteA dental crown is a strong, natural-looking permanent tooth restoration that covers the top of the damaged tooth. They are available from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte.

We use dental crowns to solve a number of dental dilemmas. They can remedy the following issues:

  • A fractured tooth with decay
  • An ill-fitting existing crown
  • A decayed tooth that has lost a considerable amount of tooth structure
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that causes a bite problem

Before your dentist can attach the crown to your tooth, we must prepare it. Dentists often administer a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain during the prepping.

We will remove decay, if any, and shape the tooth to receive the crown. Then a mold is taken of the prepped tooth and surrounding teeth.

A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth to protect it until you return to receive the permanent restoration. The patient needs to be wary while wearing the temporary crown. Vigorous brushing or flossing can displace the crown or damage the exposed soft tissue. The patient should also refrain from eating extremely hard foods like nuts or sticky candy.

The mold of your teeth is sent to a dental lab where your crown is fabricated. Dental crowns are offered in three varieties: tooth-colored crowns made of resin or porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and solid metal crowns.

Each type has its pros and cons. Your dentist will choose the best suited crown material for your particular tooth.

What if you need a permanent dental restoration for both the top and root of your tooth? A dental implant is your answer.
