Using dental crowns to restore the smile
- Posted on: Feb 14 2020
At Dr. Lenny Slepchik’s office, patients in downtown Montreal can obtain general, cosmetic, and restorative dental treatment. This includes the fabrication and placement of dental crowns. Crowns are ceramic restorations fabricated specifically for you that cover a natural tooth. Crowns offer an extra layer of protection and strength. They may also be placed on a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. These versatile restorations offer you many benefits.
Advantages of dental crowns
Dental crowns offer many benefits which include the following;
• They last a long time with proper care at home and regular professional dental cleanings
• They are very strong
• Offer protection to the implant
• Enhance your appearance
• Function as a normal tooth
How is a dental crown placed?
When a crown is being placed over a natural tooth, Dr. Slepchik begins with the preparation of the natural tooth. This includes the removal of a very thin portion of natural enamel around the entire tooth structure. Impressions are taken with our digital impression system (Itero,) which links directly to our dental laboratory. We have had an excellent relationship with them for a very long time. The ceramist will complete the restoration based on Dr. Slepchik’s recommendations. This includes the colour, shape, and size of the crown. Patients return to our dental office to have the crown bonded permanently in place.
Patients may have a dental crown placed over the abutment of their dental implant. The crown is fabricated to match the patient’s existing shape, size, and colour of their teeth so that the crown blends in with the smile. The crown is made to fit over the dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.
Who is a candidate for a dental crown?
Patients who need to restore their smile will benefit from the placement of a dental crown. They are a versatile solution to address a number of dental concerns.
