Restore a Damaged Smile with Dental Crowns

As we age, so do our teeth. Problems like decay, cracks, and discoloration may begin to affect your smile and oral health. Your smile may not be what it once was. Crowns, sometimes called tooth caps, are one solution that can help you regain your youthful smile.

If a tooth is decayed or cracked, we may suggest a tooth crown to protect the damaged teeth from additional, more expensive problems. Sometimes a filling or bonding is just not enough to restore your smile the way a dental crown is capable of doing.

What is a dental crown?

Dental crowns are prosthetic teeth that are custom-designed to blend perfectly with your natural smile. A crown can be used to fill gaps in your smile or to encase and protect a tooth that has been damaged by injury or decay. Our high quality dental laboratories can craft your crown from aesthetically pleasing materials like zirconia or porcelain.

What do dental crowns involve?

Crowns are created from a number of materials. They can be constructed of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. A porcelain crown is normally the best choice. It is designed to match the shade of your natural teeth, blending in to appear natural – providing a beautiful solution for a natural smile.

Inserting dental caps usually takes two-three office visits, which consist of the following steps:

Step 1:

First, you will be given a local anesthetic so you will not feel any discomfort. Then tooth will be reshaped. The enamel of the tooth will be prepped to insure a proper fit when the permanent crown is seated over the tooth.

Step 2:

After the tooth has been properly shaped, we will take a mold of the tooth we are treating and the surrounding teeth. This mold is the guide the dental lab uses to create your new crown, guaranteeing a perfect, natural fit. Because this is a personalized, original crown created especially for you, there are certain details and processes that require about two weeks. Before leaving, our dentists will fit you with a temporary crown that will protect your tooth until the permanent crown is finished.

Step 3:

For the permanent placement of your crown, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort. We will then place the tooth with cement. And when you look in the mirror, you’ll see a beautifully restored, natural looking tooth.
