Many things can happen to a patient’s teeth, and so it is great to know that there are procedures such as resin crown restoration to bring them back to the healthy form they once were. This involves a very hard substance that will be resistant to breakage in the future. This means that, once this procedure is performed, with good oral hygiene and regular checkups and exams, there is no reason to think that a resin crown restoration won’t last a lifetime.
When performing this procedure, the dentist will have to prep the area. This will be done by assessing the damage and determining whether or not there are other procedures that will first need to take place such as root canals or cleanings. Once the examination is complete, the unhealthy parts of the tooth, and the tissue around it, will be removed and readied for the resin crown restoration.
A mold will then be made of the patient’s mouth so that it can be sent on to the laboratory to have the device made. While the patient is awaiting this device’s arrival, they will be fitted with a temporary that will serve to protect and seal the tooth. This stops any further damage and lessens the chance that the tooth might become diseased once again while waiting on the permanent device to arrive.
Once the device has been delivered, the patient will then come in for a scheduled appointment to test the fitting of the permanent device, and, if it fits, the temporary will be removed. The permanent device will be put into place, and the resin crown restoration will then be complete.
This will go a long way in helping to keep the patient healthy and provide a bright smile for years to come.
