Many people have damaged teeth, crooked teeth, discoloration, and other dental issues. For some individuals, receiving cosmetic dental crowns is the perfect solution. Cosmetic dental crowns are a permanent solution to help give you a flawless smile. Be sure to consult your dentist to find out if cosmetic crowns for your teeth are ideal for your situation.
If you want to determine if you’re a good candidate for crowns, you’ll need to schedule an appointment for an exam and a consultation with your dentist. After their initial assessment, they can let you know if you could benefit from this procedure. If you decide to proceed with dental crowns, you will schedule a separate appointment to complete the treatment.
Once you arrive for your dental appointment, the dentist will do a quick examination and prep the area for the procedure. Once the tooth is clean, the dentist will begin shaping it to accommodate the crown. He will provide a numbing agent to ensure your comfort during the process. Once he is happy with the tooth’s shape, a digital scan of your mouth is taken and sent to the computer software to design your custom crown. Once this process is completed, this information is sent to the in-house milling machine to create your crown. When the crown is made, Dr. Dhir will bond the crown to your tooth to complete the process.
Once the procedure is finished, the dentist will provide you with aftercare instructions. He will also encourage you to maintain a good oral hygiene routine and continue with regular check-ups twice yearly. If you take care of your crown, it can last you a lifetime.
