Dental Crowns to Repair Tooth Damage at Estetica

Creating Your Permanent Crowns at Estetica
A tooth must usually be reduced in size, known as "shaping or prepping", to accommodate a crown. Then, an impression is made of the existing tooth. The impression is sent to a lab where a custom-designed crown is made to match your dentist’s specifications. A temporary dental crown is made until the permanent crown is ready. .
Caring For Your Dental Crown
With proper care, your crown can last for years. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration. Certain behaviors, such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding), significantly shorten the life of a crown. You should also avoid eating brittle foods, ice because they can compromise and damage the bonding of the crown.
