Dental crowns fit over the top of natural teeth that are weak, decaying, cracked, chipped, or misshapen. Crowns are like caps that strengthen teeth and protect them from future damage. They are long-lasting. The process of getting a crown is a simple, fast, painless procedure.
Some of the many benefits associated with dental crowns at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics include:
Since tooth-colored crowns perfectly match your surrounding natural teeth, people won’t realize you’re wearing them. Crowns restore teeth after decay, tooth damage, or a root canal. They can also attach to bridges or dental implants to replace missing permanent teeth.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental crowns, your Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics provider reviews your dental history, examines your teeth and gums, and reviews results from your dental X-rays. In the case of minor tooth decay or damage, fluoride treatment or fillings might be all that’s needed to restore a tooth.
Right before getting a crown, your provider might numb the treatment area to ensure your procedure feels comfortable. They remove any infection or decay if it’s present, and they might reshape your tooth to make room for the crown.
Your dentist digitally scans the tooth to develop a custom-fit crown that fits perfectly over your natural tooth. When the crown is ready, they permanently bond it over the top of your tooth and ensure it fits comfortably. There’s no downtime afterward, so you can resume normal daily activities right away.
Take good care of your crown, teeth, and gums by brushing your teeth at least two times a day using fluoride toothpaste. Floss your teeth every day and don’t chew on popcorn kernels, ice, or hard candy. See the expert team at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics every six months for an exam and cleaning, and call the office if your crown becomes loose or falls off.
