Crowns at Aloe Vera Dental
A crown is used to restore and protect a weakened tooth caused by decay or trauma. A crown fits over the remaining tooth structure and restores the function and aesthetic appearance. There are different types of crowns available depending on the individual needs. At our practice, these are usually made from porcelain or porcelain bonded to metal.
What to Expect?
Our dentist will use a numbing cream on the gum & a local anaesthetic before the neighbouring teeth/tooth is prepared using a dental drill. Impressions will be taken which are then sent to our lab technician who will make the bridge. Our dentist then places a temporary bridge to protect the area & improve the aesthetics. At the second appointment the temporary bridge is removed, the area is cleaned & the permanent bridge is tried in & placed using cement.
