Dental Crowns in Bristol, CT

If you have damaged a tooth or injured it in some way, your local Admire Dental Bristol professional may recommend dental crowns. Crowns may seem scary at first, but the procedure is fast, simple, and does not cause pain. However, you will spend a bit of time getting used to the feel of your new crown.

How Crowns Are Placed

A crown will likely take two separate visits to your dentist in order to be placed. During the initial visit to your dentist, the tooth will be prepared. Any decay that is present will be removed along with most of the outer portion of the tooth. When this has been completed, your dentist will get an impression of the teeth being worked on so that they can craft a crown that fits perfectly onto your tooth.

Before your permanent crown arrives, your dentist may apply a temporary crown to the affected teeth. This is to prevent teeth from getting damaged after so much enamel has been removed. When the permanent crown arrived, the temporary crown will be removed and then the permanent one will be fitted by your dentist. Any adjustments that need to be made will be done so that it fits comfortably.

Once it has been fitted properly, your dentist will use a special bonding cement to secure the crown onto the tooth.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

Your crown needs to be taken care of as if it is one of your natural teeth. They are not unbreakable, so you will need to avoid using them for purposes other than eating, drinking, speaking. Keep up with your regular oral hygiene routine, adding any steps that your dentist has instructed you to take. Be sure to visit your dentist often after getting the crown applied so that they can keep an eye on your teeth and make sure everything is going smoothly.
