Dental Crowns Protect Gresham, OR Patient Teeth at Dr. Robin Kwon’s Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
As we age, our teeth develop cracks, chips, stains, discolorations, and other problems that can make our mouth more susceptible to decay and other periodontal health related issues. Dental crowns (http://www.aestheticfamilydds.com/
Dental crowns most typically made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. Porcelain is often recommended by Dr. Robin Kwon because it is the most natural looking of the dental crowns available. Porcelain can be made to match the natural shade of your tooth, protecting them, while also preserving their cosmetic appearance. The placement of a dental crown only takes two to three dental visits to Dr. Robin Kwon's office. First, the tooth needs to be reshaped so that the crown can be placed over it. Anesthetic is applied so that the procedure is pain-free and comfortable. An impression of your tooth is taken and then sent to a lab where your custom crown will be created. The crown generally takes about two to three weeks to be made, but you will be fitted with a secure, temporary crown to ensure you can eat, speak and smile in the interim period. When you return to the office for the permanent crown, you are once again given anesthetic to eliminate discomfort. Permanent crowns are durable and are placed on your tooth as a long-lasting solution to your dental problem. With proper care, dental crowns can last anywhere from ten to fifteen years.
Crowns are conveniently cared for just as you would care for any of your other natural teeth. If you live near Gresham, OR, and you think that your smile could benefit from the use of dental crowns, contact Dr. Robin Kwon at his office to find out if they are the right solution for you.
