About Dental Crowns@headingTag>
To repair and restore chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely over the the visible area of the tooth to cover where a dental cavity is too sizeable to be fixed with a regular filling or if a tooth is damaged and must have protection. Crowns can also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth or adding stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square can be porcelain, metal, or ceramic, according to the location of the crown. The posterior teeth typically are helped by the increased strength of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.

What to Expect@headingTag>
To make a personalized crown, our dentists first ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking digital X-rays and molds of the tooth, which will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary crown may be used to cover the tooth while the permanent crown is being sculpted. As soon as the permanent crown is returned to DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI, our dentists will carefully secure and fit the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the crown for the patient's best fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although nearly all patients will not feel any soreness after the crown is finalized. With ideal home care and routine dental cleanings and examinations, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, depending on the position and material of the crown. Some patients may have a bacterial infection or cavity will form below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
If the dental cap is regarded as essential for the patient's health, dental insurance companies typically cover some of the bill, so our office staff at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI will talk with the insurance to estimate their coverage and then the patient's portion of the costs. Estimated billing, payment options, and financing plans are available at our office in Brookfield, WI and can be talked about during the patient's meeting with our dentists.
