Do I need a Dental Crown?
Teeth that are very weak, with large cavities, vary large failing fillings, fractures, hairline cracks, and after root canal treatment require full tooth coverage to protect the tooth from future fractures. The teeth are fully covered with a crown.
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
How Long Does It Take?
Fitting a crown requires at least two office visits. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and take an impression of your tooth and bite. A temporary crown will protect your tooth until the next appointment.
At the lab a porcelain crown is fabricated according to your own tooth preparation.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the porcelain crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and polish it.
Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!
