CROWN- PORCELAIN/CERAMIC

 

Summary


Dental crowns improve both the strength and appearance of your teeth. A dental crown covers an individual tooth. They are custom made and they are designed to look like a natural tooth.


Reasons to get a dental crown:

               To protect a tooth that had a root canal

               To protect a tooth that is weak

               To hold a cracked tooth together and seal it from decay

               To cover a discolored tooth

               To restore a weak tooth

               To improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth

               To support the replaced tooth in a bridge

               To restore natural bite

Length of the procedure: 2 dental office visits


Hospital Stay: Dental crowns are placed in an outpatient procedure.

Recovery before traveling home: Patients seeking dental crowns through medical tourism can return home in 3 weeks or sooner if they wish to make two trips.


Travel Tip: This procedure requires more than one procedure. You can stay the length of time between both procedures, which is typically 2 to 3 weeks or you can go home and return for your second procedure.

Procedure Details

The procedure will begin the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated. The tooth will then be cleaned and any decay will be removed using a dental drill. Then, the dentist will grind the tooth down so that the crown will fit better.


Once the area has been prepared the dentist can place the crown. They will apply dental putty first to make an impression of the tooth. This impression is sent to a laboratory so the permanent crown can be made. Then, the dentist will place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it while the permanent crown is being made.


When the temporary crown is made you will return to the dentist office for your second procedure. The temporary crown will be removed. The tooth will again be cleaned and it will be roughed up with a drill. Etching acid and dental cement will be applied to the tooth and the cap will be placed.


After the Procedure

After your dental crown procedures are done you may experience some discomfort for a day or so. You may have some swelling and a dull ache. The cap may also have a strange feeling that takes some getting use to. The cap will be fully functional 24 hours after it is placed. You can care for a dental crown as you would your regular teeth.

Results

In general the placement of dental crowns is very successful. Many people have concerns about their dental crown looking natural. Fortunately the more advanced, modern dental crowns look and feel very natural. In general a dental crown lasts for about 10 years. However, a dental crown can last for less time if proper care of it is neglected. It is very important to follow your dentist care instruction and maintain an adequate oral hygiene routine.
