Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that are severely decayed, cracked, or broken, and for covering severe discolorations from previous trauma or staining. Crowns can be shaped and colored to closely resemble your natural teeth, and they improve the strength and longevity of the affected tooth.
First the affected tooth is cleaned thoroughly and any decayed areas are removed. The tooth is then shaped to allow room for the crown to fit. An impression is then taken and then sent to a dental laboratory to be used for the construction of your crown.
During the construction phase a temporary crown is fabricated in the office that is strong and tooth colored and will protect the area during your final crown fabrication. After the final crown is completed. Dr. Naidu will remove your temporary and cement your final crown in with a permanent cement that will seal the tooth and ensure years of durability, health, beauty, and function.
