Dental crowns are a facet of restorative dentistry, designed to repair and improve the appearance of a damaged or discolored tooth. At Creating Smiles, PC, our goal is to have you leaving with your smile looking even better than it did before the damage occurred. We’re able to achieve virtually flawless results thanks to our advanced technology and ability to restore smiles with minimally invasive techniques. Our custom-made dental crowns will blend right in with your natural teeth and be just as durable. We offer gold, silver, and porcelain crowns.
If one or more of your teeth have sustained damage or are noticeably discolored and you want a change, give us a call.
How Do I Get Fitted for a Dental Crown?
Naturally, your dental crown will need to fit like a glove over your tooth in order to be comfortable and functional. To start, your dentist will need to examine your tooth to decide the best course of action. There are several factors that go into helping us decide what type of crown you’ll need and how it will have to be placed, including your bite alignment, gum tissue, and your budget.
You will have an impression taken of your teeth so we can craft the dental crown to fit in perfectly. During the time that your crown is being made, you’ll be given a temporary crown to protect your tooth. Once the crown is ready, we’ll first do a fitting to make sure everything is comfortable, then cement the crown in place.
How Long do Dental Crowns Last?
At Creating Smiles, PC, we want your dental crown to be as well-made and durable as possible. With proper care, you can expect your crown to last a lifetime. We recommend avoiding chewy, hard, and sticky foods whenever possible and keeping up with brushing twice daily and flossing at least once a day.
If you have any questions about caring for your dental crown or need a checkup, please give one of our dental offices a call.
