What You Need To Know Before Getting a New Dental Crown?

Posted on 1/20/2018 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Dental Crowns Frank W. Sallustio DDS, MS, FACP AZ 85375-4486Dental crowns are implants that are placed permanently into the mouth when needed. Before getting anything done with your teeth, you should be informed and educated about what it is you are getting done.

You can always ask us whatever you need to before we do the dental crown procedure. Here is what you need to know before getting a new dental crown.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Not only do dental crowns strengthen damaged teeth, but they can also improve your appearance. Dental crowns can also align your teeth, shape them properly, and improve your bite, otherwise known as your dental occlusion.

If you have a gap in your teeth, it can cause the remaining healthy teeth to shift and cause a bad bite. Having a crown placed in your mouth can prevent this from happening.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are a few different dental crowns that you can use, including ceramic, gold, porcelain, resin, and stainless steel. The cosmetic crowns are commonly made from gold, ceramic, or porcelain.

There are pros and cons for each of these kinds of crowns, according to the American Dental Association, so ask us about each one before getting the procedure done. We will do our best to ensure you know everything you need to know about dental crowns.

The Procedure
If you are thinking of having something like this done, talk to us first so we can inform you about the process. Having dental crowns placed into your mouth will take two visits to your dentist's office.

During the first visit, we will examine your teeth to ensure you will benefit from a dental crown and if you do need it done. We will examine the tooth to make sure it will support a crown before we install one. During the next visit, we will then start to file your tooth down for the fit of it.

Getting this done may or may not benefit you. Ask us about the procedure before you decide if you want something like this done. Contact us, and we will do everything we can to put your mind at ease.
