Dental crowns can be the ideal aesthetic and functional solution for a tooth with more extensive decay.
Used frequently in restorative dentistry, dental crowns are often used to restore your smile -and your confidence! Crowns often last a lifetime with proper care and oral hygiene and can provide stability and support for the surrounding teeth and bone tissue.
Crowns can be used to:
- Strengthen cracked or worn teeth
- Support dental bridges
- Restore a tooth after root canal therapy
- Complete the dental implant process with a new smile
There are a wide variety of materials that can be used to create a crown including resin, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and metal alloys. Partnering with United States laboratories allows is to provide our patients with crowns that are natural looking, dependable, and also affordable. Your doctor will work with you to select the material that works best to ensure your new teeth's durability.
To create your crown, we will create an impression of your teeth and bite, which we then use to create a model that will be used to create the new crown. This model will be used by the lab technicians to ensure that the new tooth fits properly and looks like your natural teeth.
There are some instances where a crown may be placed on the same day, but we will place a temporary crown over the prepped tooth so to protect the tooth while the final crown is being created.
