Sometimes, no matter how much you stay on top of your oral hygiene, life can leave you with a damaged tooth. In many cases, damaged teeth need a dental crown to save the tooth. Also known as ceramic caps, dental crowns are widely used in cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry in several situations. If you’re experiencing an issue with a damaged tooth, at Total Health Dental, Aurora, Illinois, Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin can repair your smile with a dental crown.
Dental crowns are used in various situations and are a cosmetic and practical solution to many dental issues. They are safe, reliable, and can make your smile look as good as new.
Here are just a few instances where dental crowns can help patients.
Don’t let the idea of restorative dental treatment intimidate you! Dental crowns are a simple and minimally invasive solution for repairing damaged teeth. Our expert, Dr. Mohsinuddin, thoroughly cleans the enamel and removes damaged tissue from the affected tooth. Then, a custom crown is designed specifically for that tooth.
While the permanent crown is being crafted at the laboratory, you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown to ensure you can eat and speak normally. It’s essential to take good care and avoid certain hard foods during this time, as your temporary crown won’t be as durable as your permanent crown.
But, before you know it, you’ll be back in our office to place your permanent crown, which will seamlessly integrate into your smile, becoming a beautiful and functional part of your oral anatomy.
Total Health Dental is proud to serve Aurora and the surrounding communities.
