Dental crowns are a crowning achievement in dentistry. Dentists use tooth caps to restore badly damaged or decayed teeth and replace a missing tooth as part of a dental bridge or implant. Dental crowns are incredible appliances in dentistry and not only restore the function of your smile but the appearance, too. Dental caps are exceptionally durable, well-fitting, and natural-looking in the skillful hands of the dental team at Hebron Smiles.
You may not realize how problematic a decayed or damaged tooth is until it happens to you. When you have a compromised tooth, simple activities like chewing become a source of discomfort. Enjoying your cold or hot drink is no longer enjoyable due to sensitivity. What about your appearance? A damaged tooth mars your appearance, which dips your confidence and self-esteem.
The good news is that you don’t have to put up with a damaged smile. Dentists like Dr. Adnan Saleem use dental crowns to repair damaged teeth. And the repair isn’t a band-aid solution! Your newfound smile can last for as many as 15 years!
Dental crowns are great for covering up, and do their work diligently to:
Typically, dental crowns require at least two dental appointments. After giving you the nod for dental crown treatment, your dentist sands down your tooth to create space for a crown. Next, we take impressions of your bite and create models to be used by a dental lab to custom-make your crown. Before your crown is ready, we will install a temporary crown to protect your smile.
After about two weeks, your crown will be ready for bonding. After ensuring it looks natural and fits well your dentist bonds it permanently to your tooth using dental cement. Your newly crowned tooth functions and looks like the teeth you were born with.
