Dental Crowns

When a tooth is weakened by injury or decay, in order to protect it, a dental crown will be placed on it. Very large fillings, root canal therapy or a broken or cracked tooth, are all general dental care treatments in which your dentist may recommend a crown. Occasionally dental crowns are also used in cosmetic enhancements such as when a tooth is badly discolored or misshapen. In these circumstances a crown makes the tooth look more appealing in your smile.

Crowns come in a variety of materials. Stainless steel, gold alloy, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin or ceramic are some of the materials used to create crowns. The circumstances of the tooth to be crowned determine which materials will be used. In many cases you may have options regarding the type of crown that will be used on your tooth.

Once it has been determined that your tooth needs a crown, it will be prepared. Our dentist will explain the procedures used in preparing your tooth for the crown. When the preparation is complete and the crown is ready, it will be permanently seated on the tooth. In the case of porcelain resin and ceramic crowns, your tooth will now have the appearance of a natural tooth and the protection it needs.

CEREC One Visit Dental Crowns

Dental technology advances have improved the way many dental procedures are carried out. CEREC One Visit Dental Crowns is an example of this. In just one visit, with minimum prep work, your crown is made while you wait, seated and you are ready to go with no extra visits. Our dentist will examine your tooth and let you know if you are a candidate for this procedure. CEREC crowns are used on teeth with large amalgam fillings and they are often used to replace older crowns. CEREC crowns look good and they last longer than composite fillings. Contact Moores Chapel Dentistry to schedule a consultation about dental crowns.
