Dental crowns are one of the last lines of defense for preserving badly damaged teeth. They are usually necessary for teeth that have experienced:
- Endodontic Treatment (root canals)
- Large Cavities
- Large Fractures
- Failed, Old Fillings
- Dental Implant Treatments for Individual Missing Teeth
Rather than patching up a tooth with a filling, the crown covers the entire tooth. It allows the tooth to continue functioning normally. Regular biting and chewing is no longer a problem, whereas an unrestored tooth would break down over time.
Your Crown Treatment
Most of our class=”h1_nonhome”>crown treatments take two visits to complete. Your first appointment involves prepping the tooth and taking an impression to design your permanent crown. A temporary crown is bonded into place for about two weeks. Then you return for your second visit where the permanent crown is permanently cemented over the tooth. Our crowns are usually made of porcelain or gold.
