Q: What are dental crowns?
A: Tooth-shaped caps that can replace the tooth enamel and restore the health, function and beauty of the tooth. Crowns are made to fit perfectly over the tooth.
Q: What is the treatment process?
A: Your dentist will numb the tooth and will trim the enamel, which will make room for the crown. Then, he will make impressions of the tooth and will send those impressions to dental lab technicians. Your dentist will cover your tooth with a temporary crown while you wait. Finally, when the crown is made and sent to our office, he will remove the temporary crown and cement the new crown over the tooth.
Q: What can a dental crown do for me?
A: It can protect a weak tooth, hold together a broken tooth, help a severely worn-down or damaged tooth, improve the appearance of a tooth and more.
