This year has been a great opportunity for change and to be grateful. There are so many reasons to smile, but it may be challenging to smile if you’re experiencing tooth pain from a damaged tooth. A root canal or some other restorative solution may be necessary to repair the tooth. Our London KY dentist can address your tooth pain with a dental crown. Crowns are an easy procedure that may be exactly the treatment you need to get your smile back to its optimal health. Here are the some of the details to consider to see if a dental crown is necessary to save your smile:
Crowns are comprised of ceramic composite resin or porcelain when possible. These are ideal because they match the appearance of your natural smile or can be matched to your teeth. Metal alloy are a more noticeable option.
When your teeth have cracks, breaks, or are simply weak from oral health issues, crowns are the ideal solution. Crowns cover or work as a cap for dental implants or your existing tooth. They can provide support to compromised teeth. Your cosmetic dentist London often uses crowns to save a tooth. Saving a tooth can prevent damage to the teeth that surround it, making this an overall healthy option.
Your Modern Dental Solutions team and dentist London and will get an impression of your mouth first so they can build a crown from a perfect replica of your teeth. They will use cameras and x-rays for the best possible image of the damaged tooth. The tooth may need to be filed down so the crown fits more securely. Depending on the treatment plan for your smile, the crown is created in a dental lab or in the office. We will usually use a temporary crown on your tooth if the lab needs time to create it. We will upgrade your crown to the permanent custom crown once it’s ready.
Once your crown has been placed, it’s vital to take care of it, along with any other dental work. In addition to regular daily dental hygiene, regular dental exams twice a year are strongly recommended by our London dentist. Ask us if you have questions about dental hygiene products or would like a recommendation.
There are numerous benefits of dental crowns. The most common is its ability to strengthen your tooth to prevent any additional decay, gum disease, or bone loss. Crowns support your other teeth so that the tooth enamel doesn’t create premature wear and tear damage. Your smile can retain its function and appearance, keeping you <a href="http://<a style="background-color:black;color:white;text-decoration:none;padding:4px 6px;font-family:-apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "San Francisco", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Ubuntu, Roboto, Noto, "Segoe UI", Arial, sans-serif;font-size:12px;font-weight:bold;line-height:1.2;display:inline-block;border-radius:3px" href="https://unsplash.com/@auttgood?utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=photographer-credit&utm_content=creditBadge" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" title="Download free do whatever you want high-resolution photos from Autumn Goodman"><span style="display:inline-block;padding:2px 3px"><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" style="height:12px;width:auto;position:relative;vertical-align:middle;top:-2px;fill:white" viewBox="0 0 32 32"><title>unsplash-logo</title><path d="M10 9V0h12v9H10zm12 5h10v18H0V14h10v9h12v-9z"></path></svg></span><span style="display:inline-block;padding:2px 3px">Autumn Goodman</span>looking and feeling your best.

The closures of non-essential businesses and encouragement to distance yourself from others, many have chosen to share their smiles from the comfort of home.
