Suppose you have come for a dental checkup at Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, and Dr. Frank Vidjak or Dr. Fanny Yacaman says you need a crown. Now you are wondering: What is a crown, and what is the procedure like?
Here is what to expect during dental crown placement.
Teeth crowns are dental caps put over the teeth to improve the appearance and function of a tooth. Besides, crowns are used to protect fractured or damaged teeth from further injury. Crowns are created to resemble your natural teeth. So with your crowns, don’t shy off from showing your smile — most people will notice your dazzling smile but can’t tell you are wearing crowns.
Are you wondering why you would need a crown? Numerous reasons necessitate the placement of a crown. Some include:
You will also need a crown after the placement of a tooth implant to restore your tooth.
After a dental exam, the next step is to prepare your tooth, which involves removing part of your enamel to create space for the crowns — anesthesia is administered during this process to reduce discomfort. Then, Dr. Vidjak makes digital scan impressions, which are sent to the lab to create your crowns. In the meantime, you will have a temporary crown to protect your teeth.
Once your crowns are ready, they will be sent to Dr. Vidjak for placement. The temporary crown is removed, and then your teeth are cleaned before placing your new crowns. Next, your crowns are tried-in and any adjustments made prior to bonding.put on the tooth. After bonding, Dr. Vidjak will test your bite and remove any excess material that makes your bite uncomfortable.
Once this is done, you can now walk off with long-lasting crowns that enhance your smile and oral function.
