Dental Crowns - Protecting and Restoring Your Teeth!
Are your teeth in need of some repair? Whether you’ve got teeth that are cracked, stained, decayed, or otherwise damaged, we’ve got solutions for you! Dental technologies are improving every year and helping us to provide you with the highest quality of care.
What is a Dental Crown?
One of the most common dental repair solutions that we offer at the Northside Dental Group is dental crowns. Crowns are a sort of cap or topper that can be placed directly on top of a tooth. They’re often made of porcelain or ceramic in order to provide great durability along with the appearance of your natural tooth.
What Can a Dental Crown Fix?
Dental crowns are often used to restore teeth. They can give better color and shape to a tooth as well as repair dental damage and decay. If your tooth has been worn down due to grinding, cavities, or trauma, a dental crown might just be the best solution for you.
What’s the Process Like?
A dental mold or digital scan will be taken to help create a dental crown that will fit your tooth perfectly. The decayed portion of the tooth will be removed and cleaned. Then the specially made crown that was crafted for your specific tooth, will be cemented to your natural tooth. Our office even includes a CEREC crown machine that can create crowns in one single dental visit.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
If you care for your dental crown properly it can last up to fifteen years. Caring for your crown is like caring for your other teeth. Brushing and flossing daily as well as regular dental visits will all contribute to the long life of your dental crown.
If your tooth is in need of some serious repair, you might want to consider looking into having a crown made. Strengthen your smile and keep your teeth in good shape both now and in the future.
