How to Know If a Crown is Right for You
Anytime a tooth is damaged to the point that it cannot hold a filling, a crown may be the best answer. A crown, which is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth, often looks so much like your normal teeth that no one will ever know the difference! Dr. Mannas will make sure that your crown is the same size and shape of your original tooth. He will also ensure that your bite is properly aligned so that your new crown will feel very much like your natural tooth. The dental material used to make crowns comes in a variety of different shades, so Dr. Mannas can match the color of your new crown so that it matches your teeth perfectly. Crowns are very durable and normally last for many, many years.
About the Procedure
Getting a new crown usually involves two trips to the dentist office. During the first trip, Dr. Mannas will prepare the existing natural tooth so it will be ready for the crown. An impression will be made, then that impression will be sent to a dental laboratory, where your new crown will be made. Dr. Mannas will provide you with a temporary crown that you can wear while your permanent crown is being prepared. During your second visit, Dr. Mannas will remove your temporary crown and replace it with the permanent crown.
