Composite Resin Crowns
These crowns are made of composite resin, a material similar to plastic. They may not be as strong as metal or ceramic crowns, but they can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
The Procedure for Getting Dental Crowns
Getting a crown usually takes two appointments to complete. The dentist will numb the tooth and surrounding area during the first appointment with a local anesthetic. Then, they will file down the tooth to make room for the crown. Next, they will take an impression of the tooth to send to the lab where the crown will be made. In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it. Once the permanent crown is ready, the temporary one will be removed, and the permanent crown will be cemented.
Dental crowns can enhance the appearance of your smile and restore the strength and function of your teeth. Whether you need to repair a chipped tooth, cover a discolored tooth, or protect a weakened tooth, dental crowns offer a versatile and long-lasting solution.
