Know Your Crowns

Dental crowns can help to fix a wide range of dental issues including restoring large cavities, support dental bridges, dental implants, protect a broken or cracked tooth, reinforcement after a root canal, or to correct the size, shape, and color of a tooth. Dental crowns typically are made out of porcelain, composite resins, or metal alloys. If you are interested in dental crowns to help you with any of the above issues, then contact our dental office for more assistance in deciding if a dental crown is right for your smile.

Getting a Dental Crown

The procedure of applying dental crowns to an individual’s smile is comfortable and begins with the dentist removing any signs of decay. They will then shape the tooth in preparation for the crown. During the entire process, your dentist will numb the affected area to avoid discomfort. A mold will be taken and sent to a lab to complete the final crown.

Taking Care of Your Crown

Dental crowns are created to be durable, yet they require similar care as your natural teeth do. Daily brushing and flossing will help to ensure your crowns last a long time as well as biannual appointments with your dentist. Dental crown costs and insurance coverage will vary, but our office is eager to help you achieve a healthy smile. Contact us today for more information.
