Dental crowns are a great way to restore and repair a damaged tooth. If you’ve got a tooth that is decaying, broken, cracked or otherwise damaged a dental crown could be the perfect solution for you. At our dental office, our highest priority is the comfort and health of our patients. Dental crowns help us heal and strengthen so many smiles!
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are toppers or little caps that can be placed on top of a damaged tooth to protect it and restore it. They can be made out of stainless steel, silver, gold, a composite resin material, ceramic, and porcelain.
How Are Dental Crowns Made?
A mold or digital scan is taken of your tooth and a crown is a custom made to fit perfectly on your damaged tooth. You can decide with the help of your dentist what kind of material you’d like your crown to be made out of. That decision will depend on the look you’re going for and your budget. If you prefer a natural look, then we suggest a porcelain crown. It will blend seamlessly into your smile and you won’t even notice that it’s there!
How Are Dental Crowns Placed?
If you and your dentist have decided that a crown is the best dental option for you then your tooth will be cleaned and prepared for a crown. All decayed or damaged bits will be removed and then your teeth will be cleaned to prepare for the placement of your crown. Once your specialized crown is completed, it will be cemented onto your natural tooth.
How to Care For Your Dental Crown
You should care for your dental crown by brushing and flossing daily. When cared for properly, your dental crown can last a long time.
