BRAMPTON, Ontario - March 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Dental crowns are tooth caps that cover the entire tooth to restore the appearance, size, shape, and color of the teeth. These caps are usually cemented in place to repair the teeth and they can last for a decade or so.

Our dentist in Burlington, ON, can recommend dental crowns if you have any of the following problems:
  • Weak teeth because of decay
  • Broken and severely worn out teeth
  • Dental bridges and implants
  • Misshapen and discolored teeth
  • Cracked and chipped teeth

The dentist can also recommend dental crowns in Burlington, ON for children to protect the baby's teeth. The tooth crowns shield the primary teeth from decay.

Do They Damage the Teeth?
No, dental crowns are used to repair and restore the teeth. However, it is worth noting that the crowns require reshaping of the teeth' enamel to make room. This process is irreversible and you may need to wear the crowns or other teeth restorations all the time.
How Long Does It Take to Have the Crowns Fixed?

The crowns need at least two visits to be fixed. The dental crown procedure involves a few steps:

Examination and planning

The dentist will begin by examining your teeth to check the extent of damage and the condition of your gums. Next, your teeth are cleaned and if decay is present, a treatment to remove it will be done before the procedure begins.

Preparing the teeth

Your gums and surrounding tissues are anesthetized to reduce the discomfort. The dentist will trim the enamel to make room. The amount of enamel removed will depend on the thickness of the crown. The dentist will take an impression of the teeth and gums to make the permanent teeth. It will take a couple of weeks to get these crowns, in the meantime, the dentist will cover the teeth with temporary caps.

Fixing the crowns

This is done on your second visit and the dentist will replace the temporary crowns with permanent ones. The crowns are fixed using a block of cement and hardened with a special light. The teeth are polished for a final look.
