Normal Crowns - Dental Crowns
Dental crowns do more than restore a tooth. If you have a tooth or teeth that make you hide your smile, dental crowns can help fix the issue. Dental crowns are a viable and stable option that correct your smile while providing your teeth with more stability. The dentists at Magnolia Modern Dentistry are experts at dental crowns for cosmetic reasons and are happy to help you with your cosmetic issues too.
Why Choose Dental Crowns
You have many options when correcting the appearance of your teeth. Among the options are dental veneers, dental bonding, and dental crowns. While veneers and bonding are non-invasive procedures, they do not work in all situations. Dental crowns can help even out posterior teeth, hide large cracks, or give a tooth a better appearance after excessive decay.
We suggest dental crowns for patients that have weak teeth that may not remain strong enough with dental veneers or bonding. Crowns offer a bit of restoration alongside cosmetic assistance, helping your teeth look and feel strong.
The Initial Appointment
Dental crowns take two appointments. At the initial appointment, we evaluate the condition of your mouth and the affected teeth. If we decide that dental crowns are the way to go, we will prepare the teeth. This involves removing some of the tooth’s enamel to make room for the crown so that you have a comfortable fit and can still eat and talk easily.
Once we prepare the area, our staff will take impressions of your mouth. We need the impression to send to the lab. The technicians make a custom crown made just for you. It will match the shape of the tooth that it is covering as well as the color of your surrounding teeth. Our goal is to provide you with a dental crown that blends in with your mouth seamlessly.
The Second Appointment
At your second appointment, we will place the crown on your tooth. Before we make it a permanent part of your mouth, we will test it out. We will ask you about the comfort level of the crown as well as what you think of its appearance. We use this time to make adjustments to ensure that you are completely comfortable with the new addition to your mouth.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
Our dentists often encourage dental crowns when we have patients that want cosmetic changes to their teeth because of the durability they provide. Even if you just need cosmetic dentistry, the dental crown can make your tooth stronger This allows you to keep your tooth’s natural roots for much longer. The roots are necessary to stimulate your jawbone to keep up the structure of your jaw as you age. Dental crowns also look like a natural addition to your mouth since our lab custom creates the crown to look just like your other teeth.
