Damaged or cracked teeth are vulnerable to infection and sensitivity, and can further break down under the pressure of a bite without any support. A crown is an easy solution to damaged teeth and is also usually placed after root canal therapy. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is custom-made to fit the area of the damaged tooth. Once placed, the crown will protect the tooth from further breaking and stabilize the bite, all while providing a natural feel. To begin the crown process, the damaged tooth is reshaped to fit the new crown. Once reshaped, impressions are taken of the area where the damaged tooth is in order to create the perfect, custom fit for the patient’s tooth. The impressions are then sent to a laboratory where the permanent crown is made. In the meantime, the patient will receive a temporary crown that will enable them to continue with their daily activities until the permanent crown arrives. The final step sees the temporary crown removed and the permanent crown cemented into place. Broken teeth can lead to very dangerous consequences if left untreated, not mentioning that they can ruin a perfect smile. Don’t let broken or damaged teeth cause you problems, call 703-333-5105 and schedule an appointment today at Shiny Dental.
