Get Natural-Looking Dentistry Crowns
Too bad dentistry crowns aren’t like the kingly crown variety, but if your Dallas dentistry expert is Dr. Kolbensvik (Dr. K to patients and friends) this dentistry experience with crowns is pretty close.
Dentistry crowns, sometimes called “Caps,” are dental restorations that fit over teeth like crowns. You may need dentistry crowns if you have broken old fillings or fractured, chipped or sensitive teeth. Your dentistry caps or crowns also may be applied to improve the appearance of teeth that are malformed or discolored.
You may need dentistry caps or crowns if you have dentistry problems such as:
• Extensive decay damage
• A poor aesthetic appearance to your smile
• Fractures, root canal, or bridges
• A previously filled tooth that has more “filling” than “tooth”
Dentistry caps or crowns are made of natural-looking porcelain. The effect is an improved overall smile with dentistry crowns that blend in with your own teeth. If necessary, the dentistry caps or crowns may include an underlying metal shell to improve strength and durability.
Discuss with Dr. K whether your situation merits full porcelain dentistry caps or crowns or requires porcelain fused-to-metal or all-metal dentistry crowns.
Dentistry Crowns: The Perfect Marriage of Form and Function.Not only will your remaining tooth structure be protected, but the appearance of your teeth also may be greatly improved with dentistry caps or crowns.
Dentistry crown fittings may require two appointments. At the first dentistry caps or crowns appointment, your teeth may be prepared for the dentistry crowns, including the creation of impressions of the teeth as well as the placement of temporary dentistry caps or crowns over the prepared teeth.
Temporary dentistry caps or crowns are plastic or acrylic restorations that protect your teeth and gum tissue between dentistry visits. You may require a local anesthetic at this dentistry appointment for your new crowns.
When you return, your temporary dentistry caps or crowns will be removed and the permanent crowns fitted. Dr. K will remove any temporary cement and then fit the final dentistry caps or crowns. Final dentistry crown procedures may include a check for dentistry crown accuracy, adjustments for any bite discrepancies, and an evaluation of the dentistry crowns aesthetics.
You may feel some mild sensitivity to cold temperatures with your new dentistry crowns for a few weeks. If the sensitivity seems severe, does not go away, or the bite feels uncomfortable, contact Dr. KFor your “kingly” dentistry crowns experience or for questions regarding any other dental procedure, contact the friendly staff at Dr. K’s.
