A Dental Crown Restoration Might Be Needed to Treat a Significant Case of Tooth Decay

Posted .

Remembering to thoroughly your teeth every morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste helps to remove plaque and lingering food material from the surfaces of your teeth. It’s also important to remember to floss between each of your teeth and along the gumline once per day.

A daily routine such as this is intended to reduce the build up of plaque acids in your mouth, as well as prevent hardened tartar from accumulating at the gumline. With consistency this can lessen your chances of suffering from tooth decay and gum disease.

Chronic lapses in your oral hygiene habits or skipping one of your dental checkups at Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS could allow a cavity could develop. Without professional attention this small area of tooth decay could worsen into a significant dental health problem.

If the affected tooth doesn’t have enough healthy tooth enamel to anchor a dental filling our dentist might need to perform a dental crown restoration. Treating a tooth in this condition typically requires two separate appointments.

The first calls for removing any remaining tooth enamel and preparing a detailed impression. Your new dental crown will then be produced in a state of the art dental lab from gold, base metal alloys, or a special type of dental porcelain.

When it’s ready you will need to return to Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS where the dental crown will be cemented into place with a special type of dental adhesive.

If you are in the Greeley, Colorado, region and you have a tooth with a cavity, you should call 970-506-1122 to have it treated at Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS.
