We take lost and damaged teeth very seriously. Our crowns provide the restoration results you need to smile proudly and confidently.
Dental crowns are effective restorations when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns look natural and offer much-needed assistance with chewing and speaking. We use high-quality materials in our crowns to ensure the restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional performance.
We ensure your dental crowns blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and will function like natural teeth. You can expect to make a minimum of two visits when receiving dental crowns. We use the first visit to make impressions of your teeth and then send those impressions to a dental laboratory. Once the crown is ready, you can return to have it fitted and ensure it fits properly.
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used when a tooth has a very large filling that exceeds the natural tooth structure, your tooth had root canal therapy or for cosmetic reasons.
Dental crowns and many applications. The first is to be installed over a damaged tooth to cap the existing structure, which restores the damaged tooth so it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth; these implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and serve as the root for the tooth. This procedure keeps the crown steady and secure. They do not require any special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.
How do temporary dental crowns work?
There are a few steps your dentists will follow in putting on a dental crown. Crowns typically begin with taking an impression of your upper and lower dental arches to create a replica of your teeth so a permanent crown will fit securely on the base of the tooth being crowned without letting any bacteria enter underneath the tooth structure.
Most dentists take this impression and send it off to a dental laboratory for the permanent dental crown to be built. To get the impression correct for the permanent dental crown, they must shape the tooth base below it, which could leave your tooth vulnerable in the short period between the impression being made and the permanent dental crown being delivered. Temporary dental crowns are used to ensure your tooth is protected during this period.
