Dental crowns, or more commonly known as caps, are a type of dental restoration that can be used for several treatments. Perhaps the most common use for a dental crown is to restore teeth that have received a significant amount of damage or decay. Dental crowns can also be used as part of a bridge or implant treatment.
Dental crowns are designed to resemble your natural tooth. Once any damaged or decayed portions have been removed, the crown can fit over the remaining structure, all the way down to the gum line. In most cases, a dental crown will take 2 weeks to create, as it is created in an off-site dental laboratory. At our practice, however, we are happy to use advanced technology that allows us to create your dental crown right here in our office. What’s more, we can design, create, and place your dental crown all in the same day! To do this, we will perform the following steps:
- Make an impression of your tooth
- Use the impression to determine specific size, shape, and color preferences for your crown
- Insert these specifications into the crown-making program, which then uses the information to create your crown out of a block of porcelain in a matter of minutes
- Verify that your new crown fits properly
- Make any necessary adjustments, and cement the crown in place
If you need a dental crown to restore your oral health and smile’s appearance, we invite you to visit our practice, where you can receive the care you need without any extra visits or uncomfortable temporary crowns. Call us today to learn more, and to set up your appointment!
