There is a simple and effective solution to restore cracked and decayed teeth – Dental Crowns. They are a great option for those wanting to preserve their natural teeth, improve alignment and create that winning smile. If you’ve broken or Chipped a tooth, have extensive cavities or even grind your teeth, a dental crown is a treatment to consider. It’s also a highly recommended treatment after a root canal to increase the longevity of the repaired tooth and hide discoloration. Our dentists at Rainbow Dental Clinic, are experts at all types of dental cap procedures. We’ll save your teeth in no time at all!
What is a Dental Crown?
In some cases a common filling is not enough to save a damaged tooth. Crowns, also known as teeth caps, are a covering that encapsulates the natural tooth. Made from materials such as porcelain, crowns blend in with your teeth for a natural looking and comfortable result. Teeth Caps seal the tooth from the rest of the mouth which helps protect it from additional damage.
Benefits of Dental Caps
- Protect a damaged tooth: Our aim is to save your natural teeth. Crowns cover and protect your original tooth, helping to prevent further decay.
- Structural Integrity: Caps strengthen teeth that have been weakened by trauma or decay. This will add years of life to your tooth.
- Alignment: Crowns can assist in subtle realignment of your teeth without the use of Braces.
- Aesthetics: We want your smile to shine, so ensure our tooth caps look natural and blend in with your teeth.
What can I expect from my Tooth Cap Treatment?
At your consultation with our experienced dentist, we’ll assess the tooth for dental crown suitability, take x-rays if needed and fit a temporary crown to stabilize the tooth in the short term. Next, we’ll give you a local anesthetic to ensure there’s no discomfort while filing back the tooth and taking an impression of it – with which we create your unique crown. Once the crown has been prepared, we’ll fit it using strong adhesives for a long-lasting finish. Although you may feel a little sensitive after a dental crown procedure, rest assured that you’ll be eating and drinking as normal shortly after – and with a pristine and strong tooth once more!
Teeth caps do not require special care, however, maintaining proper oral hygiene is very important to the overall health of your mouth. Dental crowns can last up to 20 years, so ensure you do your part to ensure their longevity.
