Your teeth make a statement about who you are and what you stand for – you want it to look as nice as possible, right? For this reason, Brunswick Smiles provides patients in Monmouth Junction with premier dental services, such as dental crowns.
A crown is a cap that covers the entire outer portion of a tooth and sometimes its roots as well. They are often applied to teeth that have been damaged or when decay has been removed from the enamel. Your dentist can use them to restore the appearance and function of teeth when they’ve been chipped, injured, or cracked, or have lost their aesthetic appeal.
Placing a crown is usually done in two steps, so you will need to see your dentist several times before your crown has been successfully installed. At your first appointment, the dentist will shape the tooth and remove enamel from the teeth being worked on so that the crown can be fitted onto the tooth.
Once the tooth has been shaved, your dentist will get an impression and use it to design a crown that blends in with your natural teeth and fits comfortably in the mouth. At your second appointment, the dentist will fit the crown and adjust it to make sure it is comfortable and secure before bonding it onto the tooth.
By working with a dental expert in our clinic, you can maintain your smile and preserve its health and beauty. Your dentist may recommend taking additional steps in caring for your crown, so be sure to follow instructions and speak with your dentist if you have any concerns about your crown.
Crowns can greatly improve your oral health and restore the balance of your bite.
