Dental Crown Knightdale

Close up 3D rendering of a dental crown being placed on a shaved down tooth at Stansell Dentistry Associates in Knightdale, NCDental crowns have immense significance in the field of dentistry. They can provide long-term solutions to a host of dental issues, ranging from strengthening a tooth after a root canal to improving the overall appearance of your smile.

Dental crowns provide strength and fortification to a damaged or decaying tooth. They act as a protective cover over your tooth, preventing further damage or decay so that you don't need to have a tooth extraction. Crowns also significantly help improve the appearance of your smile by covering discolored or misshaped teeth.

How Does a Dental Crown Work?

Unlike dental fillings which mend a portion of the tooth, a dental crown encases the entire damaged tooth, enhancing its appearance, alignment, shape, and dental health in general.

Why might you need a dental crown?

There are various reasons you may need a dental crown. Dental crowns are highly touted for their versatility, giving them an edge in various dental care procedures.

•  Protect a weak tooth from fracturing - If your tooth is decayed or severely worn down, a dental crown can offer the required protection.

•  Restoration after a root canal - After a root canal procedure, a tooth often requires a crown to strengthen it and improve its appearance.

•  Disguise a discolored or misshaped tooth - A dental crown can cover and correct these aesthetic concerns.

•  Anchor a dental bridge - Dental crowns are often essential components of these devices, offering support to replacement teeth.

Dental crowns as Part of dental implants

Dental crowns are also used on top of dental implants. Dental implants are typically recommended when you've lost a tooth. The implant will be inserted into the space, acting as the new tooth root. The dental crown then acts as the finishing touch on top of your dental implant. It is the portion of the implant that is visible - your new "tooth."

The application of a dental crown on top of a dental implant serves two significant purposes: functionality and aesthetics. A dental crown restores the functionality of a lost tooth. With it, you can comfortably carry out routine tasks like chewing or speaking without any hindrance. A well-crafted dental crown replicates the look and feel of your natural teeth, restoring your self-confidence and your smile.

What is the procedure for getting a dental crown?

Our dentist will first need to prepare your tooth for the crown. This includes examining the affected tooth and taking an X-ray to assess the roots and surrounding bone. If issues such as tooth decay or risk of infection exist, a root canal treatment might be necessary first. The dentist will reshape the tooth along the chewing surface and sides to make room for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made to ensure the crown will fit perfectly.

We will then send your tooth impression to our lab where the crown is made. This can take several weeks. In the meantime, our dentist will provide a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth.

Once the crown is ready, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and check the fit and color of your permanent crown. If everything looks good, a local anesthetic will be applied to numb your tooth and the new crown will be permanently cemented into place.

After getting your crown, you need to maintain proper oral hygiene to ensure its longevity. Remember, while a dental crown functions like a normal tooth, it still needs your care and attention.
