Are your worn teeth creating an uneven bite? Do you need extra support for your dental filling? You may need a dental crown. Dental crowns are dental restorations that fully cover teeth like a cap. Crowns can also serve as the final restoration for dental implants, which replace missing teeth at the root. We use dental crowns made of porcelain ceramic to cover discolored, misshapen, damaged, and worn teeth. Because they are made of porcelain ceramic, our crowns easily blend in with the look of the natural smile. Our professional dentists offer customized dental crown treatment in Marriottsville, MD.
Dental Crown Treatment in Marriottsville, MD
To begin treatment, Dr. Agarwal will shape the treated teeth, removing some of the enamel. Preparing the teeth in this way ensures that the teeth properly support the crown. Dr. Agarwal will use local anesthetic and sedation to ensure that patients feel comfortable during this part of treatment. Then, Dr. Agarwal takes impressions of the teeth which are used to create the permanent crowns. Dr. Agarwal will create a temporary crown to protect the teeth until the final restoration is complete. Once the permanent crowns are completed, Dr. Agarwal will remove the temporary crown. He will use dental cement to place the crown and provide adjustments for the perfect fit.
Tooth Crown FAQs
Discover more about dental crown treatment and related solutions with answers to these common questions:
What are inlays and onlays?
Similar to crowns or fillings, inlays and onlays are known as “partial crowns”. Inlays cover the chewing surface between the tooth cusps or sides. Onlays cover the tooth cusps and the surface of the tooth. Both inlays and onlays may be made from porcelain, composite, or gold. They are single pieces that we bond to the chewing surface. Patients with tooth wear or damage but do not require full crowns benefit from inlays and onlays.
How long does it take to adjust to dental crowns?
It will take patients several days to get accumulated to their tooth crowns. For most patients, it will take two to five days for their mouth to feel normal, without any discomfort. If you feel discomfort around your crown many days after your procedure, let us know and we will check your restoration.
Can dental crowns fall out?
Dental decay or tooth damage can loosen crowns. We will monitor your crowns at routine visits to ensure that they are healthy and intact. Please contact us if you notice changes in the fit or comfort of your crown. Sticking to a good oral hygiene routine and visiting the dentist on a regular basis will ensure that your crown is healthy and fits properly.
