Dr. Kelly Reynolds or Dr. Derrick Peck may recommend a dental crown if your tooth has sustained damage that has altered its size, shape and color. Crowns work to strengthen, protect and restore your teeth so that you can once again enjoy a healthy and functional smile.
Some of the types of damage which may require a crown to repair include:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Teeth which have suffered tooth decay
- Teeth which have receive a root canal treatment
- Teeth which need cosmetic enhancement
Our dentists will customize your dental crown to match the natural shape and color of your other teeth. While crowns have traditionally required two appointments to complete, our use of advanced CEREC technology means that you can leave our office with a restored smile after only one visit.
When you receive a dental crown, our dentists will first clean and prepare the damaged tooth so that it can receive the crown. We then use our CEREC software to capture a digital impression of your tooth and create a 3D model. Your crown will then be design and milled. Finally, we will check to ensure that it fits and bond the crown into place to complete your treatment.
