E4D Same Day Crowns in Glenpool
When a tooth is cracked, broken, badly decayed, or misshapen, a dental crown can restore the functionality and appearance of the tooth. Dental crowns completely encase the tooth from the top to the gum line and can be made of metal, tooth-colored porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal so they are virtually undetectable. Dental crowns are also used in situations such as dental implants, bridges, and partials to provide strength and a natural appearance in areas where there are missing teeth.
Dental crowns require two or three office visits to properly prepare the area and fit the dental crown. This procedure typically requires a local anesthetic as the dentist prepares the tooth for the dental crown. Drs. Mohanna and Georgy will prepare your tooth by removing decay or old metal fillings, then take an impression of your teeth. Your dental crown will be designed to blend seamlessly with your existing smile by matching it to the size, shape, and color of your teeth.
E4D Crowns In-Office Same-Day Durable Ceramic Crowns
Advances in dental technology are transforming the traditional appearance of dental appliances as well as shortening the length of time required to perform routine dental procedures. E4D In-office, same-day durable ceramic crowns offer the same function and durability as a traditional dental crown, but as the name implies, can be done in just one office visit. Computer-aided technology assists the dentist in quickly creating a crown with a high degree of accuracy. A digital impression is taken of the tooth and sent to an in-office machine to create a crown with perfect contours to the tooth.
Ceramic crowns also offer cosmetic benefits by being customizable to an exact color match with your natural teeth allowing you to maintain your beautiful smile without the hint of metal dental appliances. Dental crowns on average last 5 to 15 years depending on factors, such as proper oral hygiene habits and personal habits. You can extend the life of your crown by practicing regular brushing and flossing, and avoiding personal habits such as tooth grinding/jaw clenching, crunching on ice or biting fingernails. You should take care of your dental crown just as you care for your teeth, by brushing twice daily and flossing once daily.
