Dental Crowns (Ceramic / Porcelain / Same Day CEREC)
What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a restoration that is designed to cover and enhance a damaged or compromised tooth. Crowns might be necessary if you’ve broken or cracked a tooth or if the tooth has been compromised by a root canal or large filling. Crowns are designed to last for many years while providing you with a full, healthy-looking smile. We offer porcelain, ceramic and even same-day CEREC crowns to fit your needs.
Why would Dental Crowns be needed?
The reason you might need a dental crown is because a tooth has been severely damaged or compromised in some way. This might be because it’s cracked or broken, or it might be due to the fact that you recently had a root canal performed. Some patients have large areas of decay or too much filling material in a tooth that needs to be removed. In this case, we can place a crown to fully restore the tooth to its original shape and size.
For your convenience we off comprehensive dental in our office.
Who is a candidate for Dental Crowns?
To decipher if a crown is necessary, we examine the teeth and look for any area that is damaged or compromised. If you need a crown, it is a good idea to have one placed to prevent further damage to the tooth. Crowns can be placed on just about any tooth within the mouth that needs it. We can even remove and replace your older crowns as they begin to show signs of wear.
What happens during the Dental Crown procedure?
The first step is to make you more comfortable by numbing the area of your mouth in need of the new crown. We file down and shape the tooth to make room for the restoration. Impressions are taken and then utilized so that we’re able to craft a new crown just for you. The crown is then placed in our office to ensure it is securely and firmly in place. You can care for your new crown as you would your natural teeth. This helps to keep the crown healthy, strong and clean so that it’ll provide you with years of durable wear.
