slide 3:

WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN

slide 4:

It is important to visit your family dentist at least twice a year for a routine checkup or when you have a dental emergency.

slide 5:

If you are brushing and flossing your teeth frequently then you likely won’t develop any decay in your teeth or inflammation in your gum tissue.

slide 6:

With proper dental care you probably will never require a dental crown but in some cases a dentist will recommend this restoration to save the underlying tooth.

slide 7:

Dental crowns are customized restorations that are designed to fit precisely over and around a natural tooth.

slide 8:

A dental crown is required when a natural tooth has a large cavity or severe injury that reduces its strength.

slide 9:

YOU MUST VISIT A DENTIST MORE THAN ONCE

slide 10:

If you require a dental crown due to an injury or decay then you must visit a dentist more than once.

slide 11:

In some cases a dentist will create a temporary restoration to protect your natural tooth while the custom-fitted crown is made in a dental laboratory.

slide 12:

At the dentist’s office you will undergo a physical examination of your oral cavity along with having medical images collected.

slide 13:

✓ When a natural tooth has decay a dentist will remove the bacteria to prevent additional inflammation. ✓If you have injured a tooth while playing sports or during a vehicular collision then your dentist will shape the tooth to cover it with a temporary restoration.

slide 14:

DENTAL LABORATORY TECHNICIANS DESIGN DENTAL CROWNS

slide 15:

This first appointment requires an hour or less because a dentist uses computer-imaging software to measure your natural tooth along with collecting a mold to order the permanent dental crown.

slide 16:

The mold of your natural tooth and the X-rays are sent to a dental laboratory where technicians will make a natural-looking dental crown.

slide 17:

These restorations are made of durable composite materials or porcelain.

slide 18:

A dental crown is designed to fit securely over a natural tooth from the top to the bottom to protect the underlying enamel pulp and nerves.

slide 19:

DENTAL CROWNS AFTER A ROOT CANAL

slide 20:

In some cases a dentist will need to remove the pulp nerves and roots of the natural tooth because there is a serious infection and this root canal procedure requires additional time to complete.

slide 21:

To reach the interior portions of the infected tooth a dentist will remove the top of the tooth. After all of the interior tissue is removed from the tooth the dentist must fill it with a waterproof substance that supports the surrounding enamel.

slide 22:

DENTAL CROWNS CAN LAST FOR MANY YEARS WITH THE PROPER CARE

slide 23:

When a dental crown is designed the dentist has 3 goals for the restoration that include: ✓Creating a color-matching restoration that looks attractive

slide 24:

✓Making sure that the underlying natural tooth is protected ✓Having a sturdy biting surface that permits consuming food

slide 25:

As a dental crown is placed over your natural tooth it is cemented to remain in place for many years. The average dental crown will last for 10 years with proper care.

slide 26:

To keep a dental crown looking beautiful you must continue to brush and floss your teeth along with visiting your family dentist twice a year.
