The Tooth Cap Procedure vs instasmile
Before you can dive right into having a dental crown fitted over your natural tooth, the dentist will need to prepare the tooth to ensure that the dental crown procedure is successful.
Preparing the tooth
As the crown is cemented onto the natural tooth, it is vital that the tooth is fit to host the crown.
Crowns include a procedure that needs the tooth to be sanded down into a stump which will eventually allow the crown to rest comfortably on the natural tooth. If the tooth has suffered from a large amount of decay, a root canal procedure will take place to ensure that the tooth does not decay further when the cap is placed over the tooth.
An impression of your dental profile will be taken so that the crown can be accurately designed in the dental laboratory and will match your gum line. Once the tooth has been prepared, a temporary crown will be fitted to ensure that you do not leave the dentist with a stumpy tooth.
Fitting the crown
Once your crown has been crafted, you will then need to visit your dentist again for the crown to be fitted. Once the fit and color of the crown is deemed acceptable, the crown will be cemented into place.
Another session with the dentist may be advised to ensure that the fit of your crown is secure. If the crown is fitted incorrectly, you will suffer great discomfort when eating and your bite may be affected.
