Where can I get dental crown treatment for teeth in Georgetown, TX?
Dental crowns are a common restoration used in dentistry to protect, strengthen, and improve the natural teeth and smile. There are many situations in which a patient might need a dental crown, so working with a dentist that provides this and other restorative procedures is vital to a healthy smile. Dr. Andrew Edmonds of Georgetown, TX, is a dentist who can provide crowns as a treatment for broken and damaged natural teeth.
What is a dental crown?
Dr. Andrew Edmonds describes the dental crown as a cap for a natural tooth. If a natural tooth has been damaged, it may be significantly broken. In situations such as this, we encourage patients to have a dental crown placed over the natural tooth. This protects it from further damage by strengthening it. The crown is commonly made with porcelain, which can be fabricated to match the existing teeth and avoid standing out as a dental restoration when patients smile and talk with others.
Why do teeth need dental crowns?
There are many situations that may arise in which a patient might have a dental crown made. Dental crowns are sometimes fabricated for patients who have large fillings that impact the integrity of the tooth structure and make it weak. Patients who have had root canal therapy may also benefit from the placement of a dental crown, as a tooth can become weak and brittle after this type of procedure. Patients with dental implants placed for replacing missing teeth might have a full crown made to place over the abutment of the implant to act as a false tooth. All of these situations can be handled by our dental team at 4405 Dental Studio in Georgetown, TX, without a referral to another dental specialist.
How long does it take to make a dental crown?
The fabrication of the dental crown is done at a dental laboratory with a qualified, skilled ceramist, so it can take a week or two before it is complete and can be bonded into place. Patients will need an appointment for preparation and the placement of a temporary crown, as well as an appointment to remove the temporary crown and place the permanent one.
