Dental crowns, often referred to as caps, is a versatile dental restoration used for various purposes. Its primary role is to restore and protect teeth that have experienced significant damage or decay. This custom-made crown is designed to fit precisely over your entire tooth, starting at the gumline, effectively restoring its original shape and size.
While dental crowns may be crafted from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain and porcelain fused to metal, porcelain crowns are particularly popular because they closely resemble the natural color and appearance of your teeth. When you visit Avent Ferry Family Dentistry, our dentist will discuss your options for your dental crown with you to determine which type of crown is right for your needs.
Dental crowns may be recommended for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Protecting a tooth following root canal treatment
- Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge, providing stability for tooth replacement
- Covering and completing a dental implant, restoring the functionality and aesthetics of your smile
- Enhancing the overall beauty of your smile, helping you regain your confidence
- Improving the appearance of misshapen teeth
- Strengthening a tooth that is fractured or weakened
- Providing support for a large filling when minimal natural tooth structure remains
Most dental crowns can be completed in just two visits to our office. At the first visit our dentist will take impressions and prepare your teeth to receive the crowns. At the second visit, our dentist will check that the final crowns fit before bonding them permanently into place to complete your treatment.
