When is a dental crown used?
Dental crowns are often used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. They are also used to support dental bridges and to cover implants. In some cases, crowns are used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of teeth.
Actual Patient Results
What are the steps to obtaining a porcelain dental crown?
- Initial Exam. First, patients need to find out if they are in need of and would benefit from a dental crown.
- Digital Impressions. The tooth is prepared, and digital impressions are made of the remaining tooth structure.
- Fabrication. The impressions are digitally sent to our in-office that prepares a custom fitted crown in less than 30 minutes.
- Bonding. Once the crown has finished cutting in the lab, it is polished, prepped and then placed in the patient’s mouth. A crown restoration visit at Gunnerson Dental is usually completed in one visit, in less than 90 minutes.
How long will my dental crown last?
Porcelain dental crowns can last for many years, but it is important to practice good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. Additionally, avoid chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools, as this can damage your crown. With proper care, your porcelain dental crown should last for many years!
