Are your teeth damaged?  People with chipped, misaligned, broken or damaged teeth are always worried about their looks, smile and the functionality of the teeth. Broken or damaged tooth reduce their confidence level and keep them depressed at all the times. If you are one among them, you need not have to worry. There are many dental restoration procedures that can be used to protect a cracked tooth.  One among them is the dental crowns. 

A dental crown, also known as a cap, helps in restoring the functionality of the damaged tooth. It is a restoration process that can be used to protect a cracked tooth or bring back the functionality of the tooth.  It covers the tooth with a custom-designed material.  If the damage or the decay is too much, your dentist will recommend you to go for a crown. The crowns are fabricated in the dental laboratories or in your dentist place, depending on the material.  During the consultation, your doctor will take the impression of your existing tooth to create the perfect shape and size. They will also describe the entire procedure as well as your options in regards to local anaesthesia or sedation dentistry.  In case you are choosing a temporary crown, your dentist will let you know how long to keep the temporary one in place and what hygiene steps you should follow in order to ensure effective functionality. 

theTo perform the dental crown procedure, your dentist will first prepare the tooth and make a molded impression of the tooth to send it to the laboratory. In the meanwhile, a temporary crown is fitted while the final one is getting prepared in the dental laboratory. Once this job is done, the crown can be cemented or bonded at your next visit to family dental clinic

Once the procedure is completed,   your dental expert will provide you with the information about caring for the new restoration. You will be advised to maintain correct oral hygiene habits by brushing twice and flossing daily. These practices will help to remove plaque from the area where crown meets the gums, and prevent dental decay and gum diseases. Your doctor will also advice you to avoid eating hard food as this could damage the crown. 

Selecting the right dentist for your dental crown procedure is utmost important. If the dentist is professional, the procedure will be completed successfully.
