The crown is the visible part of the tooth above the gum line. a cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the tooth is known as dental crown.
Crowns are made of different materials such as gold alloy, metal alloy, stainless steel, all-porcelain, composite resin, zirconia, etc.
The procedure involves numbing the tooth with local anesthesia. If the tooth is fractured, it would need root canal treatment. then the tooth is shaved down for making room for the crown and impression is taken so that it can be built in the dental lab. A matching shade will be chosen so that they look natural.
The procedure is not painful at all as the dentist near you will give you anesthesia before the procedure.
To minimize the stress on mother and baby, it’s better to wait for the procedure and get it done after delivery.
The preparation of crown can place a lot of stress on the tooth causing the nerve to become irreversibly inflamed.
They can last for 10 to 20 years; however, it depends on how well you take care of them.
You can expect to pay anywhere between 600 to 2000 dollars for a crown or veneer.
