If you have missing teeth or damaged ones, you might have noticed a quality of life difference. It can be more difficult to chew and to properly articulate words. You might also suffer from low self-confidence because everyone wants a smile they can be proud of.
The Dental Team in Brookfield, CT can help you with this problem because they can offer multiple different types of crowns. The dentist at the Dental Team will work with you to find the best crown to suit your smile. The type will be determined on your health, your budget, and of course your preference!
Crowns or caps are covers that your dentist at the Dental Team will place on top of your tooth. This will make your teeth go back to their normal function, shape, and size. This can help with restoring your smile to its normal strength as well as its previous physical appearance.
You might benefit from a dental crown if you have a large cavity that can’t be treated with a filling, if you are missing teeth and need a bridge, if you’re interested in covering a dental implant, if you have a teeth that are worn down, weakened, or cracked, if you were treated for a root canal recently, or you simply want to fix up a tooth that’s misshapen or discolored.
It takes two visits to the Dental Team to put your crown in place. First, the dentist that will begin prepping your tooth by removing the outer portion to give the crown room to fit. He will also remove any decay that’s found. At this point, he might decide to add to the core of your tooth to provide additional support. After this, he will create a mold of your tooth.
You’ll usually get a temporary crown for the interim time of waiting for your custom crown to be created by a dentist or lab tech. They’ll use the mold to custom-make your crown. Once the crown is finished, you’ll return to the dentist, and he’ll put it in place and then adjust as needed. Once he’s satisfied with the placement, he will bond it in place with cement.
