A Dental Crown Restoration Might Be Necessary for Treating a Tooth with a Broken or Bad Dental Filli
The material used for your dental fillings will not be vulnerable to the acidic and bacterial effects of tooth decay. However, it is still possible for these forces to gradually weaken the bond between an older dental filling and the adjacent tooth enamel.
As this starts to happen the tooth might become increasingly sensitive, or experience a change in texture and color. In the case of a large dental filling that’s failing, there simply might not be enough healthy tooth enamel remaining to apply a new dental filling.
In a case like this, Dr. Noushin Adhami at Vistasol Dental might recommend restoring the tooth with dental crown. This mode of treatment will completely replace the tooth’s enamel layer with another material such as Porcelain ceramic.
This treatment process involves Dr. Adhami numbing the tooth before using a dental hand piece to remove the dental filling and any remaining tooth enamel. This will leave a small portion of tooth for crown base or she may need to apply a device which is known as an abutment. It will eventually anchor your dental crown in your mouth.
Once this is done Dr. Noushin Adhami will prepare an impression of the area. This will be sent to a dental lab where technicians will prepare your dental crown.
Your will need to come in for a second appointment when your dental crown is ready to be cemented permanently.
