Preserve the Look and Feel of Your Natural Teeth with Dental Crowns
At Addison Dental, we provide dental crowning to aesthetically enhance damaged, discolored, weak or restored tooth. A crown, also known as a cap, covers the entire tooth that has lost a lot of its structure. There are various types of crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal.
The process of making a crown includes a number of steps, beginning with taking impressions of the tooth involved. The impressions are used to create a mold of the teeth. Meanwhile, your dentist may place a temporary crown or bridge on your teeth. Once the crown is completed, it is inspected and then cemented onto your teeth.
Crowns are a good option for:
- Covering a discolored, misshapen or broken tooth
- Covering a restored tooth (dental implant tooth or a root canal tooth)
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Protecting fractured or decayed tooth
