Do you have one unhealthy or unattractive tooth that takes the function as well as the beauty away from your smile? If so, it’s time to consider enhancing your appearance and improving your smile with a dental crown in Studio City, California.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that can fix and improve decayed, misshapen, discolored, cracked and fractured teeth. It also provides natural-looking as well as natural-feeling results that help you use your smile with confidence. To tell you a little more about a dental crown, Dr. Tatyana Kolodner and our dental team are happy to explain the process involved in placing the restoration at Dr. Kolodner Dental Group Inc..
First, your dentist will prepare the tooth in need of the crown. In order to do so, he will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. Next, he will trim the tooth enamel to make room for the dental crown.
Once the tooth is shaped correctly, your dentist will make impressions of your tooth and the surrounding teeth in your dentition and will send those impressions to a professional dental lab. The lab technicians will use those impressions to create a dental crown that is perfect for you. While you wait, you will be given a temporary crown so you can still use that tooth if needed.
When your new crown is ready and sent back to your dentist, you will come back into Dr. Kolodner Dental Group Inc. to have it placed over the tooth. Your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will make sure the size, fit and appearance of the new crown is exactly as expected. If the new crown is perfect, he will secure it into place with dental-grade cement.
