Posted by Ami Desai DDS on Dec 5 2023, 02:32 AM

The holiday season is upon us, bringing joy, laughter, and plenty of reasons to smile. And what better way to enhance your pearly whites than with a dental crown? Yes, you read that right – a dental crown for Christmas might just be the perfect gift to give yourself this year.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The process of getting a dental crown is a relatively simple and straightforward procedure. It typically involves two visits to your dentist, with each visit lasting about an hour or two.

During the first visit, your dentist will prepare the tooth that needs a crown by removing any decay and shaping it to accommodate the crown. They will then take impressions of your tooth, which will be sent to a dental lab where your custom-made crown will be created.

While you wait for your permanent crown to be fabricated, your dentist will place a temporary crown on your tooth to protect it. Once the permanent crown is ready, you'll return for another appointment, where it will be cemented in place using a strong adhesive. After the procedure is complete, you may experience some sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area for a few days. However, this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

It's important to note that getting a dental crown requires proper oral hygiene care and regular check-ups with your dentist. This ensures that the longevity of your new crown is maximized and helps prevent any potential issues down the line.

Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

When it comes to your dental health, taking care of any issues promptly is vital. One common dental procedure that can offer numerous benefits is getting a dental crown.

  • First and foremost, a dental crown provides strength and protection for a damaged or weakened tooth. Whether you have a cracked tooth or one that has undergone root canal treatment, a dental crown can help restore its functionality. By covering the entire visible portion of the tooth, it acts as a protective barrier against further damage.
  • Not only do dental crowns provide structural support, but they also improve the aesthetics of your smile. If you have discolored or misshapen teeth, crowns can be custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, giving you an enhanced appearance.
  • Getting a dental crown can alleviate discomfort caused by sensitive or exposed nerves in the affected tooth. It helps shield these vulnerable areas from external stimuli like hot or cold food and drinks.
  • In addition to their functional and aesthetic benefits, dental crowns are long-lasting solutions. With proper care and regular check-ups with your dentist, they can last for many years without needing replacement.

So, if you're considering improving both the health and beauty of your smile this Christmas season, getting a dental crown may just be what you need!
