Chipped tooth or broken tooth can get back its previous form by the means of a crown, which literally is the restoration of the shape of the original tooth. When the crowns are created, they tend to be better than the original tooth, so that it appears aesthetically appealing. In the present days, porcelain materials are used to create the crowns, so that the entire tooth can be covered with it, up to the level of the gums. Crowns are usually used in cosmetic dentistry to give a new shape, to restore decayed tooth, make it strong and sometimes hold a bridge in place. These prosthetic structures are usually made of porcelain these days, although metals and alloys or amalgams were in use in the past. Porcelain fused to metals is the commonest these days, due to their strength. Such structures are said to last for quite a long time, on an average of more than a decade.
Putting a crown by the cosmetic surgeon in Delhi needs certain procedures to be followed. To make way for the material of this structure for fitting over the top, filling is to be done on the existing part of the tooth. Some may require root canal treatment in the cosmetic dentistry clinic in Delhi, in case there is decay. Usually the procedure of fitting a temporary crown is done first, while in the second visit, the permanent crown is provided. An impression in plastic material is first taken and then the permanent crown is prepared in the porcelain or metal, which is fitted to the remaining part of the tooth with special cementing material. Modern day technologies are making it possible to fit a crown in one visit, with the use of CAD-CAM unit, where 3D images are created and the crown is prepared. Ideally, after the placement of this prosthesis, there shouldn’t be any discomfort of pain and the nearby teeth should fit properly. The bite is also checked for proper alignment. Once the crown is fitted by cosmetic surgery in India, people need to visit the dentist from time to time. This is done in order to allow our dentists to check the condition of the gum and the crown, so as to detect loosening of the material or cement and see for any developing gum diseases.
