Crowns Q & A
What is a crown?
A dental crown is a restorative treatment that fixes a chipped, broken, damaged, or weakened tooth. It is a very natural and comfortable way of restoring your tooth back to its normal function and feel. A crown has sometimes been nicknamed a “cap”, since it is placed on top of the tooth. Dr Hill uses only the most superior dental ceremics (no metal) to restore, strengthen, and enhance your tooth’s shape and natural appearance
What is the process for getting a crown?
Traditionally, a crown can take up to two appointments: One to prepare the tooth, and a second appointment to cement the crown. Dr Hill has the most advanced technology that allows her patients to have a crown prepared and delivered the SAME DAY. Dr Hill has the PrograOne Mill which allows patients to have their tooth prepared for a crown, and have the crown milled and delivered the same day. No messing with wearing a temporary crown and a second return appointment.
Even better, there are no more messy, gooey impression! Dr Hill uses the Trios Digital scanner that provides a far superior image and more comfortable way to capture any necessary images.
How long does a crown last?
Like with most restorations, the lifespan of a dental crown depends greatly on practicing good at-home oral hygiene and keeping your regular scheduled dental cleaning and check up appointments. Brushing and flossing, as well as avoiding bad habits like chewing ice and hard candy, and smoking, will keep your crown in beautiful shape.
Dental crowns are an excellent restorative technique to save and strengthen damaged teeth. Dr. Hill has been successfully helping thousands of patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles. To learn more, contact The Art of Dental Wellness for a consultation by calling or booking online.
