Dental​ Crowns

porcelain crowns in Wooland Hills

A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, ceramic​ tooth colored crowns are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. Crowns are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may​ eventually need to be replaced. Ceramic ​crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or Fractured Teeth
  • Cosmetic Enhancement
  • Decayed Teeth
  • Fractured Fillings
  • Large Fillings
  • Tooth has a Root Canal

Crown procedure​:

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment involves preparing your tooth by removing any decay, shaping the tooth and then taking a highly accurate impression to create your custom crown. A temporary crown will protect your tooth while your new crown is fabricated.

At your second visit, your permanent crown will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit.

You will be given home care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
