Dental Crowns White Bear Lake
See how Our Dental Crowns in White Bear Lake can Turn Your Smile into Something New
There are a number of reasons that patients receive dental crowns during their dental treatments. There are also numerous benefits to this treatment, whether it be a general or cosmetic improvement, and patients can have a much healthier and happier smile with their help. Below, we’ll discuss the benefits of our dental crowns in White Bear Lake and what they’re typically used for in relation to your smile.
Here are some of the reasons that you may receive a dental crown, or want to receive one:
· A weak, sensitive tooth that needs to be held together or protected
· An extremely discolored tooth that looks unnatural next to the rest of your smile
· Other cosmetic reasons
There are different materials that dental crowns can be created from. Porcelain crowns are typically used for cosmetic reasons, on the teeth that can be seen when you smile naturally. Crowns may not be the best solution for your smile, which is why we’re here to fully discuss what’s best for you, your smile, and your overall dental health.
Generally, receiving a dental crown takes two separate dental visits. During the first visit, we’ll be reshaping your tooth in order for the crown to fit over the top of it. We will also make an impression of it that will be sent to a dental laboratory in order for them to create your permanent crown. Until then, you’ll be provided with a temporary crown that will cover your newly reshaped, still sensitive tooth.
During your second appointment, your dentist will place the permanent crown and provide you with helpful information on how to get used to the crown until it starts to feel completely natural. There are simple tips, like keeping your gums and teeth healthy by brushing and flossing on a daily basis, twice a day. Make sure you’re also keeping up with your scheduled visits so we can check up on your dental crown and ensure that it’s functioning correctly while looking and feeling like the rest of your teeth.
