Dental Crowns

Dental crown procedures are ideal for patients bearing badly damaged or decayed teeth. "Caps" as they are also called, cover the entire visible surface of an affected tooth to add strength, durability and stability when large-scale surface problems of the tooth are presented. Gold, ceramic and ceramic-veneered gold crowns are some of the most commonly used crowns by dental professionals today. Some of the reasons why individuals choose to have a dental crown procedure include:

  • Repair cracked or severely broken teeth
  • Restore decayed teeth
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Fractured fillings

    What to expect

    A dental crown procedure typically requires two office visits. The first appointment will entail removing any decay and shaping the tooth to properly fit the crown. Impressions are then taken of the affected teeth, and promptly sent to a dental laboratory to be custom-designed. Temporary crowns are given to the patient until the permanent crown is available. During the second visit, the doctor will remove the temporary crown, clean the teeth, and fit and adjust the new crown.
