A crown is a type of dental restoration that fully covers the portion of a tooth or dental implant that lies above the gum line. Meant to restore your teeth’s beauty and functionality after they have been damaged, or suffer from severe decay, a crown brings the tooth back to its original function, strength, and aesthetics.
What to expect for a crown procedure:
Routine anesthetic and preparation occur during your visit. E4D CAD/CAM technology is utilized to produce same day crowns, which will then be cemented. Please wait an hour to eat after cementation.
FAQs Regarding Crowns
Will it hurt once the anesthesia wears off?
You will be sore due to the amount of anesthesia given. Ifneeded, you can take any over the counter pain medication. You might encounter some sensitivity, which is normal and may take a week or two to settle down. If, for any reason, you need anything more, please call our office.
What color will it be?
How long do I have to be in the temporary for?
Can I floss?
Yes, however, when flossing with the temporary, we recommend going down and pulling out the side rather than pulling back up. With the permanent crown, we want you to continue to brush and floss normally
If it comes off, what do I do?
A veneer is a thin shell made of porcelain that, when bonded to your teeth, will enhance the look of stained, chipped, broken, or undesired teeth.
Three appointments are required for the veneer procedure:
- Impressions for temporary veneers
- Prepping the teeth which consist of taking impressions and reviewing color shades.
- Permanently cementing your veneers
FAQs Regarding Veneers
How do I clean my veneer?
To clean the veneer is the same as all your natural teeth. You still need to brush and floss.
Do I need to stay away from certain foods?
You can eat what you would like; you just need to be careful biting into certain foods such as caramels that could cause the veneer to loosen.
