What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are just one solution in restorative dentistry that can help repair damaged teeth. Our team at Centre Place Dental uses these porcelain caps when areas of tooth decay occur, or patients have procedures such as root canal therapy performed on their natural teeth. These crowns or “caps” are made of porcelain and bond over a tooth to provide a layer of protection and strength to maintain the tooth structure underneath. Additionally, dental crowns can be fused to false teeth to create a dental bridge, a restoration made to replace one or several missing teeth in a row. Both solutions are available at our office.
How long does it take to make a dental crown?
Because we have invested in CEREC technology, we are one of the few dentists in the area offering same-day CEREC crowns. Patients can eliminate the wait for laboratory-created dental crowns and have their smile restored in just one visit!
How are dental crowns used?
From root canals to replacing missing parts of the tooth, dental crowns have come a long way in providing solutions for all types of oral health issues. The following situations may warrant the fabrication and placement of a dental crown:
- A tooth that has an extensive area of tooth decay that cannot be restored with a filling alone
- The loss of a tooth and replacement with a dental implant to function as the natural tooth root
- Patients who have undergone root canal therapy and need extra protection for their weakened tooth
Do I need a dental crown?
Drs. Chris and Robin Post of Centre Place Dental see patients regularly in their practice seeking restoration of one or more teeth. Dental crowns are a way to protect the tooth structure and eliminate the permanent extraction of a single tooth. In case a tooth is removed, dental implants and dental bridges may be utilized by our team to help restore function and appearance.
