WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR A CARLSBAD DENTAL CROWN?
Written by Dr. DeAngelis
Do you have severely decayed, damaged, or infected teeth? Have you been told you aren’t a candidate for a dental filling? At DeAngelis Family Dentistry, our Carlsbad dentist is proud to offer dental crowns for patients that are suffering from a compromised tooth and are interested in improving the function, health, and appearance of their affected tooth. Wondering what is involved in dental crown treatment? Follow along!
Prior to taking an impression for your dental crown, our dentist in 92011 will first prepare the affected tooth. Any decay is removed and the tooth is shaped to be prepared for the impression and to place the dental crown.
Creating a Good Impression
Once your affected tooth has been properly prepared, your dentist in Carlsbad, CA will take an impression of the tooth using a putty-like substance. This impression will then be sent to a laboratory to fabricate your new tooth.
The Temporary Crown
While your permanent dental crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown will be placed so that you aren’t walking around with a partial smile.
Choosing a Color
After the impression has been taken, your dentist will discuss the color, shape and even size of your new tooth. The ultimate goal is to create a dental crown which blends with your natural smile, making treatment virtually unnoticeable.
The Lab Team Works Its Magic
Once your impression is sent to the lab, their experts will use the impression and provided information to create the perfect tooth for your smile. Once fabricated, the laboratory sends your brand new crown back to DeAngelis Family Dentistry.
Your Crown Is Put In Place
Once your new dental crown has been fabricated, your Carlsbad dentist will check to make sure it fits properly and looks nice, then the dental crown will be permanently bonded.
