Having teeth with severe decay and discoloration can harm your oral health and affect your smile’s appearance. A dental crown can give you a healthy smile if you are dealing with a decaying tooth that needs repair.
At Dental Care 4 U, our team can provide dental crowns to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth to restore your oral health. Under the care of Dr. Raj Khurana, we can care for your dental health by providing your family with dental care that’s affordable, reliable, and always with a gentle touch.
Restoring Your Smile with Dental Crowns at Dental Care 4 U
Dental crowns are synthetic tooth caps that cover the entire tooth above the gum line. Crowns help replace teeth that have lost a significant amount of structure and can restore the tooth’s function and appearance. They strengthen damaged teeth by giving your teeth back their normal functions and original appearance.
These restorations can be made with various materials, including porcelain, porcelain-fused metal, and zirconia. Crowns are typically placed after a root canal procedure but can also be used for bridges, cover damaged implants, and prevent a cracked tooth from becoming loose. They’re also an aesthetic choice and can cover discolorations, giving back, in return, a natural appearance.
Crown Procedures and Treatment at Dental Care 4 U
Under the care of Dr. Raj Khurana, he can work with you to give you a smile you’ve always wanted. During your appointment, Dr. Khurana will perform a diagnostic exam to determine any health concerns impacting your oral health. After discussing your oral health, Dr. Khurana can plan out your crown treatment by discussing your goals for your new look, how crowns work, and scheduling an appointment for your treatment.
Dr. Khurana will perform your crown treatment across two appointments. He will perform the procedure under the following steps:
- Cleaning and Preparation: During your first visit with Dr. Khurana, he will clean, numb, and shape the tooth for the new crown. Some of the tooth’s enamel will be removed to shape it for the crown. In cases where the tooth has little structure, the filling material will be used to support the crown.
- Tooth Impressions: After the tooth is prepared, impressions will be taken of your teeth to help create a custom-design crown. The impressions will be sent to our dental laboratory to design the new crown.
- Temporary Crown: In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed onto the tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is prepared.
- Permanent Crown: Once the crown has arrived, your second appointment will involve our dentist attaching the crown to your tooth. Dr. Khurana will use a resin to bond and attach it to the tooth and use a curing light to harden the resin to the tooth.
