A dental crown is a restorative dental procedure in which a tooth-shaped cap is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth in order to improve its appearance and/or function. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, such as ceramic, porcelain, metal, or composite resin, and are often used in conjunction with other dental treatments, such as bridgework or implants. In addition to restoring teeth that have been damaged by injury or decay, crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth. The process of placing a dental crown typically takes place over two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared for the crown and an impression is taken. This impression is then used to create the custom-made crown, which is placed on the tooth during the second visit. With single visit, dental crowns can last for many years. Please make sure to ask your dentist whether they provide Single Visit Crowns in Austin or not.
