What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crown treatment, also known as dental crown placement or dental cap procedure, is a common restorative dental treatment used to restore, protect, and improve the appearance of a damaged or weakened tooth. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, encasing it like a protective helmet. The crown is designed to resemble the shape, size, and color of a natural tooth, making it blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are a common restorative dental treatment offered at Lowerbank Dental. They are used to address various dental issues and provide long-lasting solutions. Here are some of the common treatments for which dental crowns are used at Lowerbank Dental:

  1. Tooth Restoration: Dental crowns are used to restore severely decayed or damaged teeth that cannot be effectively treated with dental fillings. They cover the entire visible surface of the tooth, restoring its shape, size, and strength.
  2. Protection of Weak Teeth: Teeth that are weakened due to large fillings, root canal treatments, or fractures can be reinforced and protected with dental crowns, preventing further damage.
  3. Cosmetic Enhancement: Dental crowns are utilized for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of misshapen, discolored, or poorly aligned teeth, helping to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
  4. Root Canal Treatment: After a root canal procedure, a dental crown is often placed over the treated tooth to provide additional support and prevent the tooth from fracturing.
  5. Dental Implants: Dental crowns are attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth. They serve as the visible, functional part of the new tooth, providing a natural-looking and fully functional replacement.
  6. Dental Bridges: In cases of missing teeth, dental crowns are used as part of dental bridges to fill the gaps and restore proper dental function.

The process of getting a dental crown at Lowerbank Dental typically involves:

  • An initial consultation and examination to determine if a dental crown is the appropriate treatment for the specific dental issue.
  • Preparation of the tooth, which may involve reshaping or reducing its size to accommodate the crown.
  • Taking impressions of the prepared tooth, which will be used to create a custom-made crown that fits perfectly.
  • Placement of a temporary crown while the permanent one is being fabricated in a dental laboratory.
  • Finally, the permanent crown is cemented onto the tooth, providing a durable and long-lasting restoration.

It’s important to note that each patient’s situation is unique, and the specific treatment plan may vary. Lowerbank Dental’s experienced dentists will tailor the treatment to meet individual needs, ensuring the best possible outcome for their patients’ oral health and aesthetics.
