What is a Dental Crown?
Also known as a “cap,” dental crowns are custom-made prosthetics that mimic the look of your natural tooth while protecting the weakening structure beneath it. Most often, patients with severely decayed or damaged teeth can expect to be recommended for a dental crown, as they are ideal solutions to help strengthen the natural structure while protecting it from future reinfection or damage.
It is also possible that Dr. Twohig might recommend a dental crown if you:
- Have a chipped or broken tooth
- Have an enlarged filling that has spread and caused damage to the tooth
- Experience discoloration of a particular tooth
- Recently underwent a root canal or dental implant placement
The Dental Crown Process
The process of receiving a dental crown typically takes two visits to our dental office. During the first visit, your dentist in Weyauwega will administer local anesthesia to numb the tooth and the area surrounding it before clearing away any of the decayed areas of your tooth. Once your tooth is reshaped and any remaining debris is removed, Dr. Twohig will take an impression of your tooth and send it off to a lab where technicians will begin to fabricate your customized dental crown. You will then receive a temporary crown, which you will wear while until your finalized prosthetic is ready for placement.
Your final appointment will consist of removing your temporary crown and replacing it with the final restoration. A special bonding agent will be used to secure it in place, ensuring it remains strong and sturdy for a healthier, fully functional smile.
