This video discusses dental crowns and what a person should know about them. People sometimes refer to dental crowns as caps because of their primary use. Most of the time, they are constructed of porcelain, but they can be crafted of metal, gold, or resin materials.
Dentists use dental crowns for a multitude of reasons. One reason they might use such crowns is to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened by a procedure, decay, or damage. They often use them after root canal procedures to strengthen the tooth that received the surgery.
A crown can also be used to cover a discolored tooth that does not respond to teeth whitening procedures. Clients who have certain illnesses or take certain medications may have a problem with discolored teeth. A crown could be the answer to that dilemma.
Crown placement usually takes more than one visit. The first visit involves numbering the tooth and then shaving the tooth so that the crown fits appropriately. The dentist then makes a perfect mold of the client’s teeth and then issues a temporary crown to protect the tooth being worked on. The model then goes to a temporary lab so that a new crown can be made. The patient receives the new crown once the dental office receives it.
