Your dental crowns are designed to last several years, but sometimes trauma or infection can compromise the materials and lead to a fracture. If that happens, Dr. Tina Subherwal at Smile Studios in Redmond, WA, can replace your broken crown easily and swiftly. She will do an examination, discuss the cause of the damage, review your medical history, and develop a plan that accounts for your specific goals.
What to Expect from a Dental Crown Replacement
If your crown is cracked, chipped, or broken, Dr. Subherwal is available for quick appointments, and can help you restore the issue before it complicates your daily life. Depending on how severe the damage, you and Dr. Subherwal will review the benefits of potentially replacing your damaged crown. As always, you will work together to determine the best course of treatment.
Some minor damage might not threaten the integrity of the crown and be polished or left alone. More severe damage may require a replacement crown. In this case, the process is very similar to the original crown replacement. Dr. Subherwal will remove the old crown, take an impression, and have a new crown manufactured by her lab. While that is happening, you will go home with a temporary crown, setting another appointment once the new crown is ready to be fixed. Your new crown will be placed at your final visit, adjusted if necessary, and secured using a special dental bond. Afterward, you will have a new crown that should last you several years, with proper maintenance.
At your appointment, you will also go over what might have caused the fracture and discuss steps for avoiding similar problems in the future. Her goal is to give you a healthy, functioning smile for your entire life, and she can help you develop strategies for protecting your teeth, as well as your restorations.
