Dental crowns are one of the most popular restorative and cosmetic treatments, protecting and strengthening teeth while helping them look healthy and attractive. Dr. Harry Ashitey is a leading provider of dental crowns for patients at Infinity Smile Center in Lewisville, TX, using state-of-the-art techniques for optimal results in each patient.
Dental crowns are protective coverings that are designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including durable porcelain that can be tinted to match the surrounding teeth so they blend in beautifully.
Crowns have many applications in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, including:
Crowns usually require two office visits. During the first appointment, any existing decay will be treated and a small portion of the tooth’s surface material will be carefully removed to make room for the crown so it fits comfortably. An impression will be made of the tooth and then sent to a lab that specializes in state-of-the-art restorations. A temporary crown will be placed on the tooth during this appointment to provide protection and the tint will also be selected for the crown. Once the crown is made, the patient will return to the office to have the temporary crown removed. The tooth will be carefully cleaned, and the crown will be adhered using a strong dental bonding agent, then buffed for a comfortable fit.
Crowns can be cared for with regular brushing and flossing and routine dental checkups to ensure the crown, the tooth, and the surrounding gums all remain in good shape. It’s also important to avoid biting hard foods or substances like ice to prevent damage to the crown (or to your natural teeth).
With proper care, today’s state-of-the-art dental crowns can last for 10 to 20 years.
Infinity Smile Center also proudly serves Grapevine, South Lake, Carrolton, The Colony and Plano.
