Benefits of a Crown Service
Some of the key benefits of receiving a dental crown service include:
• Enhances appearance of the tooth
• Covers a discolored tooth
• Replaces a failing large filling
• Protects a weak or cracked tooth
• Covers a dental implant
• Strengthens the teeth
• Restores a tooth to its natural size and shape
Traditional dental crown placement typically takes two visits. On the first visit, Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
will take x-rays to make sure the root of the tooth and bone are healthy enough to support the crown. If the tooth has decayed to the point that you need a root canal, you will need to undergo the root canal procedure and heal properly before the crown can be placed.
The crown procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and the tooth is prepared to make room for the crown. Dr. Yazbeck will take a dental impression to manufacture a custom made crown. You will wear a temporary crown while the permanent crown is being made, which will be cemented in place after Dr. Yazbeck confirms that the tissue is healthy. After the permanent crown is placed, he will check your bite and make adjustments.
