A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental restoration which completely covers the tooth and restores its strength and appearance. Crowns can be made of various materials including porcelain, zirconia, alloys, gold or a combination of these materials. Crowns look, feel and function just the same as natural teeth.
The treatment takes place over the course of two appointments. The first appointment involves shaping the tooth, matching the shade of the crown to your natural teeth, taking an impression of it and providing a temporary crown to cover it while the crown is custom made in a dental lab.
At the second appointment our dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent crown, transforming it into a very natural looking and strengthened tooth.
What are the common reasons to use them?
Crowns are used by our dentists to help our patients with a variety of challenges. In most cases, it is used to strengthen a tooth but here is a list of the main reasons that our dentists treat our patients with them:
"I don't think I have ever said this in my lifetime but I have to admit, I had a wonderful visit at the dentist yesterday... Thanks so much. I appreciate all that you do!"
“The best dentist I've ever been to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They certainly have patience with all my fears....:)”
