Dental crowns. Also known as dental caps. These are created and designed to restore/maintain the shape your teeth, protect them from further damage, and prevent harm from coming to other nearby teeth in your mouth. Whether you are wanting to ease tooth pain, make it easier to chew and eat, improve the visible shape of your tooth or have any other goal in mind Symmerlyn Dental Care is able to exceed your expectations.
Generally, there is little to no pain involved when getting dental crowns. When you arrive for your first appointment, the tooth receiving the crown must usually be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent to a lab, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is applied until the permanent crown is ready.
Like natural teeth, dental crowns require proper care. Plaque build-up and stuck food can damage your caps just as easily as they can damage natural teeth. Proper brushing, flossing, rinsing, and frequent dentist checks are mandatory and can help your dental crown last for 10 or more years.
Dental crowns are recommended for anyone who has damaged but not lost teeth. Whether you didn't brush as often as you should or you damaged your teeth in an accident you deserve to have comfort while going about your life.
