RESTORE YOUR TEETH WITH DENTAL CROWNS

A crown, also known as a cap, is cemented over the damaged tooth to restore its function and appearance. Crowns are an ideal solution when a tooth is damaged in a way that can’t be fixed with a filling or if the tooth has suffered from severe decay or trauma that leaves it fractured or broken off. It’s also often used to cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth.

Sometimes, crowns are also used as anchors for a bridge to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. However, bridges are typically recommended over crowns because bridges use healthy adjacent teeth to support the new replacement teeth and don’t require the alteration to the natural enamel on the neighboring teeth that a crown does.

HOW ARE DENTAL CROWNS PLACED?

The process of placing a crown generally involves two visits. At the first appointment, the tooth is prepared to receive the crown. This involves recontouring the tooth so that it has a superior shape to anchor the crown. Next, an impression of the tooth is taken and sent to the lab, where your final crown will be made. Finally, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is fabricated at the lab. Once the permanent restoration is ready, you’ll return to our office to have your temporary crown removed, and the permanent crown placed. Many patients find this process convenient because it is typically more affordable than other restoration options and offers a stronger, longer-lasting solution for more severe damage.

A crown, also known as a cap, is a permanent covering that fits over an existing tooth or dental implant. Once a crown is placed, it is permanently cemented in place. Crowns are generally made from porcelain, metal, resin, or other materials. Crowns are often designed to mimic the color and shape of natural teeth. A dental crown can help restore your tooth’s shape, size, and strength and to improve its appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A dental crown is a cap that can be placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength while also improving its appearance. The crown covers the entire remaining tooth structure above the gum line and is custom-crafted to fit your smile perfectly.

A dental crown may be recommended if your tooth requires a large restoration or filling, if your teeth are uneven or misaligned, or if you have a broken or fractured tooth that needs to be fixed. Dental crowns can also be placed on top of dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Crowns are custom-made tooth-shaped restorations that fit directly over the visible surfaces of severely decayed, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth. Because the crown is molded from your tooth's unique structure, it will fit your smile perfectly and completely restore your original shape. They are crafted from high-quality materials, such as porcelain and ceramic so that they will look and feel like real teeth. Once your dental crown is placed, it will look just like the rest of your teeth. In fact, it will be difficult to tell which tooth was restored in the first place!
Your dentist will first prepare your natural tooth by filing down the chewing surface and taking an impression of your bite. That impression will then be sent to a trusted dental lab, where your crown will be custom-crafted. During your second visit, your dentist will remove your temporary restoration and replace it with the permanent one. Finally, your new restoration will be bonded to your prepared tooth using a strong bonding material.
