The procedure, purpose, and benefits of high-quality Dental Crowns
Tuesday January 25, 2022
Most people wish they could change something about their smile. It could be the discoloration that has accumulated over time due to indulging in stain-causing foods and beverages, such as coffee or red wine. Or it could be chips and cracks from a past injury. Whatever the case, cosmetic dentistry can change your smile for the better. At Fort Worth Dental Arts, we offer high-quality dental crowns that can correct numerous cosmetic concerns in just one visit!
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap installed on a tooth to improve its shape or size or to restore its strength. For traditional crowns, you would need two dental appointments. In the first appointment, your dentist examines your teeth, removes a part of your enamel, and takes bite impressions of your teeth with a putty-like material. Then, your dentist sends the impression to an off-site dental lab to create your crowns. After a few weeks, you would need to schedule another appointment to install your permanent crowns.
At Fort Worth Dental Arts, Dr. Spencer Hoyt has invested in world-class, state-of-the-art technology to create your crowns in a single day! The procedure is similar to traditional dental crowns, but we have an in-house ceramics lab that can create your crowns within minutes. With our same-day dental crowns, you walk away from our office with a different smile from the one you came with in just one day!
Wondering why a dentist might recommend dental crowns? Here are some cosmetic and non-cosmetic reasons why you might need a crown:
- To cover severely stained teeth
- To improve the shape and size of your tooth
- To protect damaged or decayed teeth
- To restore fractured teeth
- To complete a dental implant
- To protect a tooth after a root canal
- To anchor a dental bridge
Dental crowns may also be used when a tooth cavity is too large for a filling. So, while a dental crown might be tiny, you can see that it definitely packs quite a punch! From aesthetic to restorative uses, a dental crown is at the center of most dental procedures you see.
