Dental Crowns are needed for a variety of reasons, and our team of experts at Pasqua South Oral Health are here to help! Some of the reasons crowns can be required are to cover a large filling, help repair a cracked tooth, or for cosmetic reasons.
Getting a dental crown may be an intimidating process, but our team will help make the service be as pain free and easy as possible. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth in question to help reduce the pain. In fact, you should only have very minimal soreness or sensitivity after the anesthesia has worn off! Plus our team has lots of experience to make it a smooth going process for you.
Initially a temporary crown will be put in place while your permanent crown is being made, and it will be replaced after a few weeks. Your permanent crown will be modeled on your own teeth, as well as colour matched, so that the fit will be natural once the process is complete.
Once your crown is in place it should last 10-20 years, with proper care. This includes regular hygiene and examination appointments, as well as taking extra care when brushing and flossing around the crown.
If you have any further questions, please call our office and we will be happy to help!
