Although a dental crown is a common treatment, it will require you to permanently alter your tooth. It’s normal to have several questions before you’re ready to commit to the treatment. Don’t worry, Dr. Badawy will take the time to address your concerns during your initial visit. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we hear.
Typically, it takes 2 appointments to receive your crown, but you can save time with Chittenango Family Dental. Dr. Badawy embraces the latest innovations in dentistry, including E4D technology. Now, you can get the high-quality restoration you need in just one day.
Our office can mill your crown to meet your exact specifications from a single block of all-ceramic material in less than an hour. There’s no need for a second appointment. You will enjoy the durable, customized crown you need in a single visit.
E4D technology eliminates the need for a temporary restoration. You’ll receive your final crown the same day as your procedure, so you won’t need to deal with the hassle of a temporary one.
Although our dental crowns are made in a single visit, rest assured, they are designed to last. Your crown can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly.
Even with the best care, your crown can become loose over time. If it falls off, do not try to fix it on your own. Instead, keep your tooth clean and avoid chewing with it. Contact your dentist right away to have it replaced.
You can ensure your crown lasts for many years by taking the time to care for it. Although the crown isn’t subject to decay, you still need to brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night. Pay extra attention when cleaning where the crown meets your gum line to remove any trapped plaque or bacteria. Besides your oral hygiene, it’s best to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Your crown is evaluated at each appointment to look for any issues, like damage or loose bonding.
To protect the longevity of your crown, it’s best to avoid chewing overly hard or sticky foods with it. It’s also recommended you avoid using your teeth as tools or chewing inedible objects with your crown.
Now, you don’t need to worry about a dark crown causing an eyesore when you smile. Our office uses all-ceramic material for a metal-free solution. Your restoration is carefully crafted to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile. No one will ever notice it is not a real tooth, so you can speak and smile confidently.
