Tooth crowns are one of the most effective dental solutions for restoring a tooth's shape, size and strength, or to improve its appearance. We recommend teeth crowns to:
Restore a tooth after a Root Canal;
Cover dental implants;
Protect a tooth from tooth decay;
Restore a broken tooth.
Preparing teeth for teeth crowns usually involves two visits. During the first visit, we will take an X-ray to examine the extent of decay. If a root canal isn't necessary, we will:
File the chewing surface, sides of the tooth and surrounding teeth.
Take an impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth.
Place a temporary crown to cover the prepared tooth while the permanent dental crown is being made.
At your second visit, we will remove the temporary. We will check the fit and color of the permanent crown, then cement it in place. We use high quality dental crowns are made from materials, including:
Porcelain fused to noble metals (like Gold);
All porcelain or all ceramic.
