What is the process of receiving crowns for dental treatment?
Dental crowns are a restoration commonly used in dentistry to save, protect, or strengthen a tooth that might have experienced trauma, infection, cavities, or substantial damage. At Harvest Hill Dental Care in Newmarket, Ontario, we recommend using crowns for teeth with significant damage.
Who needs a dental crown?
Various situations can arise, which may result in a recommendation of a dental crown for many of our patients at Harvest Hills Dental Care. These include the following:
- A tooth with significant tooth decay that cannot be repaired with a filling alone
- A tooth with a large fracture or chip that compromises its structural integrity
- A broken tooth that may need to be restored
- A tooth that has undergone endodontic therapy
- Severe discolouration or staining of a tooth
- To protect a weakened or cracked tooth from further damage
What can I expect during the process of receiving a dental crown?
Our dentists talk to patients about the process of obtaining dental crowns to eliminate any surprises and put patients at ease about the steps needed to complete the restoration of their tooth. The first step is a consultation visit and evaluation, which might include dental x-rays to check the health of the tooth and surrounding areas. Then, once it has been decided that a dental crown is the best treatment solution, the tooth is prepared by removing a very thin portion of the enamel from around the tooth structure. Impressions are taken and used by a dental ceramist to fabricate a dental crown that matches the patient’s existing smile to ensure a more aesthetically pleasing finished look. Patients return to the office a week or two later to have the new crown bonded onto their teeth.
