Have you ever had a tooth with a dash of color or a tiny chip? If yes, then you might want to know about how to fix it. There are many dental treatment options to recover teeth from discoloration and cracks but one of the perfect options is Dental Crowns. Let’s have a look at the details of Dental Crowns that are offered at Genesis Dentistry.

Do you know what is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is also known as a Cap.  It is a tooth-shaped cover that is fixed on a tooth. Our dental technicians are experts who craft dental crowns from a variety of materials, including resin, metal, and porcelain. These crowns fully wrap the complete visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Several reasons might lead you to Genesis Dentistry to get a dental crown that includes

  • Support a frail tooth.
  • Shield and support a cracked tooth.
  • Reestablish a worn-down tooth.

  • Protect a root canal-treated tooth.
  • Cover a dental implant.

There can be many other reasons for you to have a dental crown, but this is the best time to discuss your teeth-related concerns with our expert dentists.

Are you wondering about the Procedure Details of Dental crowns at Genesis Dentistry?

Our expert dentists offer dental crowns in two appointments, let’s read about the procedure of Dental crown placement.

First Visit

Stages for a dental crown procedure include:

  • Tooth preparation: To prepare your tooth for a dental crown, our dentist will remove some of your natural enamel. This will create enough space for the cementation of your new crown. If the tooth is grossly carious or broken the dentist may also buildup the tooth with a filling material. Our dentist will create a strong foundation at this stage for your new Dental crown.
  • In the next step the dentist will take impressions of your teeth. There are two ways of taking impressions one with a putty-like material and another with digital impressions with a scanner. After this step, the technician will use these impressions to create your custom dental crown.
  • The making of dental crowns takes up to two or more weeks. So, while you wait for your final crown, our dentist will place a temporary dental crown which is made of resin or acrylic.

Second visit

In this step, the Dental lab completes the making of your new crown and sends it to the dental office. The dentist will then remove your temporary crown and check the shape, color, and fit of your new crown. Finally, the dentist will Bond the new crown to your tooth using a strong dental cement.

Do you want to know How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

According to our expert dentists on average, dental crowns last between 5 and 15 years. The durability of the dental crown depends on the amount of “wear and tear”, oral hygiene practices, and your mouth-related habits such as grinding or clenching your teeth, biting fingernails, and many more. So be careful after restoring your smile with dental crowns.
