Dental Crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist. Dental Crowns are used mostly to entirely cover or ‘cap' a damaged tooth or cover an implant. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, Dental Crowns can be used to improve a tooth's appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion. The dentist may recommend you to undergo a Dental Crowns Treatment if you have a particularly weak tooth that needs to be held together or requires a bridge or if you have a tooth that is extremely discolored. Dental Crowns Treatment typically involves two separate dental visits and in the first sitting, the dentist will examine the tooth to make sure that it can support a crown, then begin filling it down to prepare for the crown. When the permanent crown is ready, you will have the second visit wherein the temporary crown is removed and the new crown is positioned to the tooth with a special adhesive. However, tooth crown pain can occur due to several factors such as if the crown is fitted without having a root canal procedure to remove the tooth pulp, it could be putting pressure on a traumatized nerve. Another cause of Tooth Crown Pain comes from previous fillings, especially those made from silver, may have had leakages resulting in bacteria infecting the nerve root. If the Tooth Crown Pain persists, it is advisable to get a diagnosis soon. Permanent Dental Crowns can have a long life and if you take good care if them, the crown can last for 5 to 15 years on an average.
