Dental Crown Placement
The placement of dental crowns is a common cosmetic dental procedure. Crowns may be used for a number of reasons including:
- Protecting a damaged or broken tooth
- Protecting a tooth that has been through a root canal
- Reconstructing the mouth with porcelain veneers
Although the placement of dental crowns is considered a cosmetic procedure, crowns may be needed for the functional reasons of general dentistry as well. Crowns are made of porcelain and are incredibly durable. Crowns must be strong and sturdy because the teeth they are protecting have been broken, damaged, or have become brittle enough that they are no longer able to withstand the pressure of chewing.
Dental Crown Preparation
To prepare your tooth for a crown, Dr. Rykard first takes an impression of the tooth to create an accurate mold. He then uses his state-of-the-art CEREC machine, a milling device used to create a restoration within the same day. The porcelain crown is usually milled within fifteen minutes and is ready for placement. The crown is then bonded to its specific tooth.
