Crowns In Atlanta

Tooth enamel is the most resilient material in your body. It withstands acidic bacteria and tremendous pressure and stress when you chew your food. Over the years, tooth decay, fractured teeth and discoloration can take a toll on your smile and your self-esteem. In these situations, fillings and teeth bonding are insufficient. Crowns can strengthen damaged teeth, improve the appearance of discolored or misaligned teeth and restore your smile.

Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. To maintain a natural look and feel a porcelain finished crown is best, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This will allow it to blend in and appear just like one of your natural teeth.

 

This dental appliance is available in various materials, such as full gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal and porcelain. Your dentist recommends the porcelain finished crowns in Atlanta because they are translucent and looks more like natural teeth than the other crown materials. This will enable your crown to blend with the shade and texture of your natural teeth.</p> 

<h4>Creating the Crown Mold</h4> 
<p>The procedure for installing a dental crown requires 2 to 3 appointments. Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the tooth so that you have a comfortable and pain-free procedure. After the anesthetic takes effect, the dentist will reshape your tooth enamel until it is small enough to be covered with the crown. Your dentist will create a mold of the tooth and nearby teeth. The mold is sent to a dental laboratory where technicians customize a crown that fits in the prepared area and blends with the shape, color and size of your other teeth.</p> 
<h4>Temporary Crown</h4> 
<p>Your dentist will install a temporary crown to shield your tooth from temperature extremes and pressure when you eat. A temporary crown also keeps the tooth in position until the permanent crown is set in place. It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks for the laboratory to create the crown and return it to your dentist.</p> 
<h4>Crowns Restore Your Smile</h4> 
<p>During your crown delivery appointment, the dentist will install and adjust the permanent crown so that the tooth properly contacts your nearby teeth and fits your bite. You will receive a local anesthetic to desensitize the area. Your dentist will install the crown with cement to make certain that it remains in place. One glance in the mirror will confirm that your radiant smile is back. Crowns in Atlanta are strong and will last approximately 10 to 15 years with regular flossing and brushing.
