If a tooth has been damaged beyond repair, dental crowns are a way to salvage the tooth and restore the look of your smile. A dental crown is a ceramic, tooth-shaped cap that’s sealed over a damaged or broken tooth, allowing you to use it normally and preventing the tooth from being damaged further.
Considering dental crowns? Thanks to our CAD/CAM technology, dental crowns take only one appointment to complete, as they are created in-office during your visit. Before placing the crown, your dentist will remove any damage or decay in the affected tooth and shape it so that the crown can fit over it. He or she will then take an impression of your mouth that will be used to create your custom crown.
After the crown has been made, it will be placed over your tooth. Once the crown is affixed to your tooth, only your dentist will be able to remove it. It might take a few days to get used to the feeling, but once you do, it will feel just like a natural tooth.
