If your teeth have sustained damage, our dentists may recommend a dental crown to restore and protect them. Crowns are highly versatile restorations and have a number of uses when it comes to improving the health and appearance of your smile. If you are dealing with extremely damaged, lost or even discolored teeth, a dental crown may be exactly what you need.
Dental crowns, or caps, are typically recommended to restore teeth that have experienced significant damage or decay, but may also be recommended to:
- Protect a tooth after it has received a root canal
- Anchor and attach a dental bridge
- Cap and complete a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of your teeth and smile
- Strengthen teeth that are fractured or weak
- Support a tooth with a large filling and little remaining natural tooth structure
- Improve a misshapen tooth
Your dental crown will be designed to fit your tooth and smile perfectly, using a tooth-colored porcelain material that matches the natural color of your teeth. Our dentists will begin by taking impressions and preparing your tooth to receive the crown. After your crown has been created, we will check to ensure it fits before bonding it into place on the tooth. Traditionally, this process has required two appointments to complete, but with our CEREC technology, Dr. Brett Barney and Dr. Jonathan Hall can complete your treatment in a single visit so that you can leave Desert Dental Group with a renewed smile!
