Orthodontics in Litchfield Park, AZ, Expert: Proper Crown Placement

orthodontics litchfield park azGetting a new crown is a common procedure to replace a decayed tooth, broken tooth, or to complete the dental implant process. While many people are happy with the outcome of their dental crowns, sometimes the color, shape, or size may be incorrect, leading to a less-than-seamless smile. Our specialist for orthodontics in Litchfield Park, AZ, explains how the process works and what to do if you are unhappy with your outcome. 

How is a Crown Made?

When you go in to start your procedure, your tooth will be prepared, and an impression of your bite will be taken to make a temporary crown to protect your tooth and to send to the dental lab for your permanent restoration. You will wear the temporary crown for about two weeks while the lab fabricates your permanent crown. The temporary crown protects your tooth from bacteria and keeps it from shifting out of place. After two weeks, you will have the permanent crown cemented.

Placing the Crown

You will first try on your permanent crown before it is cemented. Make sure that it feels comfortable, fits properly, that the color matches, and that the size is correct. To get the most accurate picture, ask to go outside in natural light to check that it looks seamless. Once it’s cemented permanently, you’re stuck with it!

What if It’s Wrong?

If your new crown doesn’t feel right, your bite feels off, or you don’t like the color, immediately tell your doctor before it’s cemented. They have the ability to re-do the crown to your liking.

Note that even a well-fitting crown might feel off for a few days as you get used to it. If you otherwise like the color and shape and decide to have it cemented and test it out, make sure you are careful when chewing and biting, as you can crack or break a crown that hits against your other teeth. However, it is recommended that everything is perfect before having it permanently affixed. The only way to fix the problem after is to completely start the process over.
