Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative procedures there is, and we do a lot of them at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas.
Placing a typical crown consists of several steps:
- Tooth Preparation. Any decay is removed and the tooth is shaped. Sometimes the tooth is too small; in that case, we build up its core with filling material to construct a tough base for the crown.
- Creating a Good Impression. A putty-like substance is used to mold an impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth. An impression is also made of the teeth opposite the crown. This ensures a good bite.
- The Temporary Crown. As the permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown protects the tooth. Patients need to be careful with temporaries. They aren’t as strong as the permanent crown. Avoid things like gum and sticky foods.
- Your Crown Is Put In Place. When the new crown is ready, it is placed and fitted in your mouth.
At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we place a lot of dental crowns. Patients throughout Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood come to us for these and other restorative dentistry procedures. Call to schedule an appointment today!
