Dental Crowns

A crown is used to cover and strengthen individual teeth that are structurally weakened. It protects the entire surface of the tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown can be used as a solution when the surface of the tooth is a problem but the root is still healthy. We may recommend a crown if your tooth is fractured, has an old filling or cannot hold a new one, is severely damaged by cavities, or is in danger of cracking down into the root if left untreated.

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. During your first visit, we will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface. Next, we will take impressions from which the crown is made. A temporary crown is placed until the permanent one is ready.

Within two weeks, you will return to have your temporary crown removed and your new crown placed. The porcelain crown will protect your tooth from further decay, but you must protect the base of the crown from bacterial growth and gum disease. As with all procedures, proper home care and regular dental visits will help prolong the life of your new crown.
