Dental crowns are one of the best ways to reinforce, protect, and treat damaged or seriously decayed teeth. With a dental crown, you can eliminate pain and discomfort, protect your oral health, and restore your smile. If you have a damaged or infected tooth, the team at Perfect Choice Dental can help with restorative care.
A dental crown is a prosthetic that’s designed to cover up and replace the structure of a damaged or decayed tooth. Essentially, it “caps” and restores the tooth, by bonding to it and protecting the tooth’s structure. Most modern dental crowns are made from porcelain and can be made to fit the color and shape of your existing teeth. Crowns blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile, restoring your tooth and your confidence.
The placement process for a dental crown is quite simple, and the treatment is minimally-invasive. Typically, it takes just two appointments at Perfect Choice Dental.
At your first appointment, impressions, pictures, and other information will be taken of your mouth in order to create your dental crown, which will be manufactured at an outside lab. This ensures proper fit, color, and shape.
Then, your teeth are cleaned, and your tooth will be prepared for the application of a crown. Any damaged or decayed material will be removed. To finish the treatment, your new crown will be checked for fit and quality, and bonded permanently into place with dental adhesive, completing the procedure.
Typically, dental crowns are used when there is severe damage to the structure of your tooth. If a tooth is damaged due to extensive tooth decay or an impact injury such as a car accident, a dental crown may be recommended. You may need a dental crown to:
