Is there a tooth in your mouth that is a different color than the others?
Most people think that when they face a large cavity in their tooth the only dentistry procedure that the dentist will recommend is to take it out. But the modern equipment and the knowledge of Dr. Godfrey at Kaysville Utah dental office will prove you wrong and restore that tooth and bring the smile on your face back. When facing this dental problem and you live in Kaysville Utah or you are near Farmington, UT, Clearfield, UT or any other city nearby, we can recommend you placing a dental crown on your existing tooth.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a “cap” that is shaped like your tooth. It is placed over your natural tooth in order to restore the tooth's shape and the size. Our dentist at Kaysville, UT dental office will place a dental crown on top of your tooth that will totally encase the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. That means your natural tooth will not be visible any more.
What is the dental procedure for getting a dental crown?
Depending on the condition of the tooth, when you visit our Kaysville, UT dental clinic, first we will prepare and shape the tooth so the dental crown can be placed. After the proper shaping, the dentist will make an impression of the tooth to make a correct fitting crown in a dental laboratory. When the tooth is ready for placing the permanent dental crown, our dentist at Kaysville Utah dental office will make the necessary dental inspection for acceptable fit, bite and good margins. When the dental crown is placed correctly, it is cemented with permanent cement or dental glue.
Types of dental crowns
Permanent dental crowns at our Kaysville Utah dental clinic can be made from dental materials like stainless steel,
gold, or metal alloy, porcelain, ceramic or resin. All-porcelain or all-ceramic dental crowns provide a better
natural color match than any other material used for making dental crowns. These types of dental crowns are
also recommended for people who suffer from metal allergies.
Does a dental crown require special care?
A dental crown does not require any special care. If you follow good oral hygiene practice and avoid habits
like grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing ice or biting your fingernails, the dental crown will have a long life span.
With regular dental visits at our Kaysville, UT location, our Kaysville dentist will make sure you have the best dental treatment, ensuring your dental crowns last a long time.
