How Do Dental Crowns Work?
As already mentioned, a dental crown is used to cover or cap damaged teeth. It can also be used for strengthening damaged teeth, improving the appearance, or shaping a misaligned tooth.
Crowns are custom-made at the dental laboratory and can easily be matched to the color of the natural teeth. Sometimes, dental crowns are also made up of gold, metallic alloys, acrylic, and ceramic. Generally, they are stronger than porcelain and are recommended for the back teeth.
Most of the dental offices in Salt Lake City require two or more appointments to place the crowns in your teeth, but at Salt Lake Dental, we feel proud to offer same day dental crown services. All you have to do is, visit our dental office! Our highly-experienced dentist Dr. Carter will let you know what kind of crowns is best fit for you and will also guide you through each and every step of the dental crown procedure.
At Salt Lake Dental, we use the latest technologies so that our patients always get the best treatment. Dr. Carter first takes the impression of your mouth, which he uses to manufacture the crown using the state-of-the-art technologies. We understand that it is far more convenient to wear the permanent crowns in the first sitting, rather than leaving with a temporary one, while the lab is making the permanent one.
In some extreme cases, Dr. Carter reduces or fills in the affected tooth for fitting the dental crown. During the procedure, we bond the crown to your tooth with an adhesive so that it doesn’t come out.
