What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are caps that fit over teeth to restore their shape, size, and strength, or to improve their appearance. They’re most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay.
Memorial Park Dental Spa is proud to provide patients with the highest quality dental crowns. They look natural and last for years.
What are the benefits of dental crowns?
At Memorial Park Dental Spa, Dr. Thomas and Dr. Abdou can fit crowns made of either metal or porcelain to cover teeth that are discolored, malformed, or broken. Most people choose porcelain crowns because they closely match the color of their other teeth and look natural.
Dental crowns can make stained or discolored teeth appear whiter and more attractive and have been used for many years to help people restore their smiles. The dentists at Memorial Park Dental Spa can help you regain confidence in your smile.
How are dental crowns installed?
Dr. Thomas, Dr. Abdou, and Dr. Chaluparambil typically install dental crowns over two visits.
During your first appointment, they prepare your teeth for the crowns. They will carefully remove a thin layer of tooth enamel, which will allow the crown to fit over your tooth and rest flush against your other teeth for a natural-looking and comfortable-feeling fit.
Once your teeth are ready, your dentist will take a mold of your teeth, which they send to the dental lab, where your permanent crown will be custom-made. Dr. Thomas, Dr. Abdou, or Dr. Chaluparambil will fit a temporary crown onto your treated teeth to protect them in the meantime.
At your second appointment, Dr. Thomas, Dr. Abdou, or Dr. Chaluparambil will remove your temporary crown and fit your customized crown onto your prepared tooth. They’ll check the fit and your bite before permanently bonding the crown to your tooth.
Once the crown is attached, they’ll polish the porcelain until it shines like a natural tooth. Then you’ll go home with a beautifully restored smile.
