So what is involved in having a dental crown? For a start, your dentist will need to give you a full examination to understand exactly what is going on with your tooth, and then they will start to find a porcelain style that matches. Unlike decades ago when dental crowns used to stand out a mile away, it is now possible to have dental crowns made up in porcelain, and shapes and colored to look exactly like the actual tooth, and the teeth around it. Although porcelain is not indestructible, if you look after it properly then you will find that it can last many years without you having to think twice about it, as long as you are brushing your teeth properly and following good dental hygiene.
In most cases, you will only need to have two dental appointments to have your dental crown fitted. After all of the mold has been removed from the tooth, a mold will be taken so the dental crown can be made uniquely to fit you, and then at a second appointment you can walk out with a beautiful new smile.
