Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

A crown, or a tooth-shaped cap fitted over a natural tooth, provides a solution to concealing cracks or discolorations in your teeth, all while improving the strength, size and appearance of your original tooth. Crowns are also designed to provide a secure, comfortable fit and a natural appearance.

Advantages of Crowns

  • Offer secure protection from continual decay or infection
  • Designed to look and function like a natural tooth
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Improve the quality of chewing and talking

Fitting the Crown

  • An anesthetic is applied to the target area to ensure a pain-free procedure. Once the area is completely numb, the tooth is reduced in size to ensure a proper fit of the new crown.
  • In order to accurately craft the crown, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a dental lab. Meanwhile, the area is fitted with a temporary crown while the customary crown is manufactured.
  • When the customary crown is ready to be placed, you will return to the office and the customary crown will be fitted accordingly. Now your bright, natural-looking tooth is complete!
