If a dentist notices a weakened, cracked, or decayed tooth, dental crowns may become necessary to prevent further issues from occurring. Fillings or bondings aren’t sufficient for these cases. Fortunately, Connected Smile Solutions offers dental crowns that can recover your smile in no time!
People would need a dental crown once their tooth begins to weaken. When a tooth becomes too weak, it can lead to other concerns like tooth decay, cracks, and discoloration. Dental crowns are designed to protect the tooth, so these issues don’t occur and ruin your smile.
Installing a dental crown may take between two to three appointments. During the first visit, we will reshape the tooth so the crown can be placed over it. We'll then take a mold of the tooth and surrounding teeth to send to a lab so they can fabricate the crown. Until the permanent crown is ready, you will be wearing a temporary one.
After about two to three weeks, your permanent crown should arrive, and you’ll come back to the office. We’ll then remove the temporary crown and bond the permanent one with a dental cement to ensure it stays in place. Now you get to enjoy your beautiful, healthy smile!
