Dental Crowns are caps shaped as teeth that are slid into place above existing teeth. Modern technology has made them look and feel extremely natural, and getting a crown is easier than ever. I had a crown put in on one of my molars and I love it. Here are a few reasons why getting and living with a crown is astronomically easier than I once thought.
It Looks Great
You might think a metal, ceramic, or porcelain cap would stick out like a sore thumb, but today, dental crowns blend seamlessly with your real teeth. The cap is perfectly shaped and colored so your smile looks better than ever!
It Fits Perfectly
The process of creating a mold for the existing tooth, ensures that the meticulously formed crown will sit in your mouth perfectly. This combined with state of the art adhesive and sealant used to bind the crown to your tooth create a new tooth that feels completely natural. Eating, talking, and smiling feels great!
Quick and Easy Procedure
With modern technology, the dental procedure for creating and inserting a crown has become almost insignificant. While it takes a few days to produce the cap that will sit on your existing tooth, the process of creating the mold for the crown and inserting the crown itself is about as easy as it gets. In some cases, as with mine, it may be necessary to grind the existing tooth down a bit, but this is quick and painless with local anesthetic.
All-in-all, the process of getting my new tooth was much less of a hassle than I anticipated. And now I love my new tooth! If you qualify for it, I highly recommend this as a solution.
