Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Crowns can restore your smile if you are suffering from a broken tooth or tooth discoloration. A crown is a cap, or "cover" that is shaped over your natural tooth, to improve the tooth's size, durability, shade, and overall look.

Crown Benefits

  • Restored, natural looking tooth improvement
  • Durability and strength
  • Improved talking and chewing abilities
  • Shield against further tooth decay, tooth cracking, and infections

Crown Procedure

  • The target tooth is numbed with an anesthetic, and then filed down to assure a proper fit for the crown.
  • Next, impressions of the target tooth are taken to create a crown according to the impressions.
  • While the impressions are sent to the dental laboratory, a temporary crown is applied to the target tooth to be worn until the customary crown is created.
  • As soon as the customary crown is ready, you will come in to have the new crown applied to the target tooth. Now you can leave with a restored and natural looking smile.
