Most people aren’t born with perfect teeth. And if you are lucky to have healthy, beautiful-looking teeth, you may develop cracks, chips, damages, and stains in the long run that may damage your smile and dampen your confidence. The good news is that you can smile confidently again with porcelain teeth crowns.
At our office, Dr. Yvonne Szyperski and her friendly team want to see every Petaluma, California resident don a great smile. If you’re unsatisfied with the smile you see in front of your mirror, please schedule an appointment with our office, and Dr. Szyperski will determine suitable cosmetic treatments for you.
What are dental crowns?
A crown is a teeth cap (hat) that covers the discoloration, damage or a crack on your front teeth. Teeth crowns can be made of many materials ranging from porcelain, metal, and acrylic. While we offer many crown types, we advise most patients to opt for porcelain crowns since they are durable and closely resemble your natural teeth.
The dental crowns placement procedure
To have your crowns fitted, you need at least two appointments with your dentist. Dr. Szyperski takes you through the procedure on the first appointment and allows you to ask as many questions about the process. Then, she will take impressions or imprints of your teeth so that your crowns can be made.
When your crowns are ready, you need to visit Dr. Szyperski again. Once she tests that your new crowns fit perfectly, she will use adhesive to bond your crowns permanently on your front teeth.
However, it will take a few days to get used to dental crowns. But after you adjust to your new crowns, you will barely notice you have them on. As a matter of fact, your crowns will fit so naturally that only you and your dentist will know you have them.
