If your tooth has suffered from any damage or if you’d like to enhance your smile, visit Harbourview Dental in Burlington to speak with a professional about restoring your teeth. One way that we offer Burlington patients a brand new smile is by providing dental crowns that are used to replace the outer portion of your teeth.
A crown will be placed in the mouth by your dentist and will take two dental visits. At your initial appointment, the tooth will be prepared for the installation of the crown. Any decay that is present will be removed along with the top portion of your tooth enamel. Only enough will be removed to install a crown onto the tooth securely. Once this has been completed, you will return for a second appointment where your dentist will place a crown onto the tooth. The crown is made specifically for your tooth and will match the shade of your natural teeth so that it blends in perfectly.
Your crown should be cleaned and maintained just like your real teeth. They can break and become worn down just like natural teeth, so it is important to keep them clean and avoid biting down on hard objects. Maintain proper oral hygiene and brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Any dental products that you use should have the AD seal of approval so that you can be assured that they are safe and effective for your teeth.
You can keep your teeth shiny and healthy by taking care of them at home and visiting your dentist twice a year for routine oral exams and cleanings. A Harbourview Dental professional can take a close look at your teeth and gums to make sure that no oral health issues will cause teeth to become damaged. If you have crowns, you should get them examined often to make sure that they are secure and that no cavities are present underneath it.
