Tooth decay and infections can result in weak teeth. After the problem has been addressed with fillings or a root canal, it is important to strengthen the teeth. This will keep you from losing them in the future. Dental crowns are often recommended for strengthening worn, weak, or damaged teeth. Worn teeth are a natural side effect of aging, and injuries can cause a chipped or cracked tooth at any age. Crowns can restore your ability to chew properly and prevent your teeth from further erosion.

What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are custom made caps that are placed over your existing teeth. They look very natural. Crowns can be made from many different materials, but we recommend porcelain or ceramic crowns. These options are the most durable and look the most like natural teeth.
Dental Crowns Functionality
Dentures, bridges, and implants are used to replace missing teeth. Each option uses crowns to help restore your smile. For example, dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jaw bone. When they heal, crowns are applied over the posts to give the appearance of natural teeth.
How Are Dental Crowns Installed?
Two appointments are required for dental crowns. On your first visit, your tooth is cleaned and shaped in order to fit the crown. Next, mouth impressions are made and sent to a lab to create your crown. In the meantime, a temporary crown is attached.
On your next appointment, the permanent crown is attached using special cement. Your dentist will check your bite to make sure that your new crown fits properly. Lastly, post-treatment care is discussed and a followup appointment is scheduled.
Why Should I Restore My Smile?
Untreated dental problems are known to worsen. This eventually leads to tooth loss and gum disease. For this reason, we highly suggest scheduling a consultation to learn more about dental crowns and other restorative procedures. Overall, correcting issues early on can save you time and money.
