Your teeth can be damaged due to decay, lack of care, injury, or bad habits. Vigorous brushing, trauma, or chewing on hard objects can ruin your smile. If you got some chips and cracks in your teeth, ask Dr. Walter G. Hadley about dental crowns. These cap-like restorations are attached to your teeth to improve its appearance.
You’re invited to visit Marineland Dental Care and sit down for a consultation with Kennewick WA dentist so he can discuss the best treatment plan for you.
Dental crowns are an effective solution for various dental problems. These “caps” protect weak teeth, support cracked teeth, restore broken teeth, covers discolored teeth, holds a dental bridge, or may even cover a dental implant. Crowns can be made from different materials but your dentist will choose the one that matches your existing teeth.
A comprehensive examination is necessary prior to the actual procedure. He may ask you to take diagnostics tests such as X-rays. Once he determines that this is the best option for you, he will begin with the treatment by numbing the affected area. He’ll make sure that you’re relaxed during the treatment. Then, he’ll remove the decay and trim the tooth surface to make room for your crown. After this, he will create impressions of your teeth and forward the final model to the laboratory for fabrication. On your next visit, your dentist will fit and place the crowns on your teeth. With proper care, your crowns can last for several years. Just keep up with your daily oral hygiene and drop by at the clinic twice a year for routine checkups and dental cleanings.
