Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Many people will come across a point in their life where a tooth is in a state of deteriorating health. Conditions such as severe decay or structural instability from multiple dental procedures on a tooth can weaken it to the point where it may need to be extracted. Fortunately, damaged teeth can be strengthened with the addition of dental crowns which reinforce and protect teeth which are structurally weak.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-fabricated “caps” which are placed over teeth that have been treated with a root canal or are structurally weak because of extensive damage. Crowns are created to appear and function as the natural biting area and other surfaces of a tooth do; this means that they are indistinguishable from natural teeth when created with modern materials.

Procedure

  • A mold will be taken of your tooth to provide a model to use as reference during the fabrication of the dental crown.
  • Decay and damaged tissue will be removed and the tooth will be shaped for the fitting of a crown.
  • A temporary crown is cemented to the tooth.
  • Once the final crown has been fabricated, it is fitted to the tooth, permanently bonded, and polished to appear indistinguishably from a natural tooth.

Smile Today is proud to offer only the most realistic dental crowns which are custom-fabricated for each unique patient using porcelain or a fusion of porcelain and gold materials. You can be assured that our dental crowns will last for decades before they need minor repair.
