Dental Crown and BridgeHEALTH SERVICES BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
Dental Boutique has been offering beautiful porcelain dental crowns for many years. Many people historically know of dental crowns constructed with gold alloy, and even from other metal alloys; however this is no longer the case.
At Dental Boutique, our cosmetic dentists offer porcelain tooth crowns as they are cosmetically and functionally the best solution for severely decayed or damaged teeth.
What happens during a dental crown procedure?
Once the decision is made between you and your dentist that a dental crown is the best option, you will need to come for two visits.
After settling you comfortably and numbing the area, the dentist will first remove a layer of the outer surface of the tooth. The dentists at Dental Boutique will remove all decayed and damaged tissue, along with all bacteria and debris. The tooth will be reshaped and resized to best support the crown to be placed over it.
Then an impression or mould of it will be sent to the laboratory which will craft your porcelain tooth crown from this model. The thickness of the dental crown will be the same as the removed layer.
The shade of porcelain to be used will be chosen by using a shade guide against your natural teeth, to most closely match their colour.
Afterwards, a temporary tooth crown will be added to protect your tooth. This will be made of a plastic material and held in place with temporary glue. The team at Dental Boutique will tell you how best to care for it.
After you’re again comfortably settled and the treatment area is satisfactorily numb, the temporary tooth crown will be removed. Your new crown will then be examined carefully to fit in best for you. It must work well for your bite, not rubbing against other teeth or causing any discomfort when your upper and lower teeth come together. We will slightly adjust its shape or size if necessary. When you and the dentist both agreed that it fits well, the crown will be cemented permanently in place.
You now have a new tooth, with a new lifespan ahead of it. Give it good daily brushing and flossing, to make sure that bacteria can’t get underneath it. An all porcelain crown these days is as strong as any other kind, and far more attractive. Your new tooth crown should last you at least ten years, even twenty or thirty, if you care for it well.
