Crowns Continue to Improve Glendale, Arizona Smiles Thanks to Doctors of Dentistry AZ’s Dr. Graneto
In the world of dentistry, a wide range of periodontal problems call for a wide range of solutions. Fortunately, there are smile resources that can be used to fix multiple issues. Crowns continue to be a versatile answer to many oral health and cosmetic issues. Doctors of Dentistry AZ’s Dr. John C. Graneto has helped many Glendale, Arizona patients get the most from their dental crowns. Crowns can be used to improve smiles with cracked, chipped, discolored and weakened teeth. Even a tooth with levels of decay that cannot be corrected through filling and boding can often be repaired and restored through the use of a dental crown. As Dr. Graneto and the entire team at Doctors of Dentistry AZ are committed to keeping patients educated on their options, here is an overview on how crowns are placed and what advantages they can provide.
When a tooth is in need of a restoration due to decay, damage or aesthetic problems, a crown is often used to mask and protect the tooth from further damage. To start, Dr. Graneto will modify the site of the future crown, by reshaping your tooth and clearing all decay. This procedure is painless thanks to the use of a local anesthetic. Once the tooth prepping is complete, an impression of your teeth will be cast. The impression will be used by the practice laboratory to fabricate a custom crown that will perfectly match the rest of your smile. This process may require several weeks; during which, Dr. Graneto will fit you with a temporary crown, enabling you to speak, eat and smile comfortably as you wait for your permanent crown to be completed. Once the fabrication is ready, you will return for the bonding procedure, which securely cements the crown in place and completes your new smile.
Crowns provide numerous advantages. In addition to being highly versatile, they last for years. As each crown is custom created especially for you, they look and feel just like a natural tooth. Placing crowns to correct decayed and damaged teeth help to ensure that further problems and infections are less likely to occur. They prevent the potential for jaw misalignment due to a chipped or misshapen tooth. They can also be used to cosmetically renew your smile, proving your teeth with a more youthful, healthy appearance.
