Just to give you an idea of what to expect, here are some of the stages you will go through if you decide to have this procedure:
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your dentist. He/she will examine your teeth so as to if the crowns are a suitable option for you. During your first which is done online, you will be required to send pictures of your teeth and inform the dentist about your dental history.
It is during the face-to-face consultation session that you will have to discuss your goals and expectations with your dentist –this is done so that you’re both on the same page before the procedure commences.
The first visit to the dentist before the placement of the dental crown is intended for the preparation of crowns. The dentist will apply a temporary crown to protect the original tooth during the visit.
Your dentist will also take an x-ray of the teeth and jawbone to check for signs of decay or other factors that may increase the risk of infection or injury.
If there is any decayed tooth, your dentist will treat it at this stage. In some cases, root canal treatment may be required before the crown is placed. After the root canal treatment is done, the dentist will use the crown. He/she will also take the impression of your bite to ensure that your teeth come together correctly.
On your second visit, the dentist will place the permanent crowns on top of your teeth. Nowadays, modern developments are allowing dentists to do optical printing. This allows the dentist to send a digital impression to the laboratory instead of a physical one.
The dentist will shape the tooth in order to allow the crown to be placed, the degree of reshaping will depend on the type of crown used. For example, metal-based crowns tend to be thin and therefore require less tooth structure to be removed than porcelain crowns.
After dental crown treatment, you should avoid hard or chewed food such as candy, which has the potential to damage the crown.
If you are grinding your teeth, most dentists will recommend wearing mouth protectors at night. Because over time, repeated grinding causes the crown to wear.
You should remember that standard oral hygiene care, such as consistent and regular brushing and flossing, will protect both the crowned tooth and other teeth from tooth decay and gum disease.
A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your dentist as soon as possible.
Patients are advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior to surgery.
If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your dentist before the surgery commences.
