Dental crowns are a versatile and effective solution for a wide range of dental problems. At Premier Dental of Washington Court House, we offer high-quality dental crown services that can help restore damaged teeth, improve your bite, and enhance the overall appearance of your smile.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, size, and function. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, metal, or a combination of these materials. They are custom-designed to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result.
Restore Damaged Teeth
Crowns can be used to repair teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken due to injury or decay. By covering the damaged tooth, a crown can help protect it from further damage and restore its strength and function.
Strengthen Weakened Teeth
Teeth that have been weakened by decay, large fillings, or root canal therapy may be at risk of fracture or damage. A dental crown can be placed over the weakened tooth to provide additional support and prevent further damage.
Improve Your Bite
If you have a misaligned bite, dental crowns can help improve the way your teeth fit together. By placing a crown over a misshapen or poorly positioned tooth, your bite can be adjusted, reducing the risk of problems like TMJ disorder and improving your overall oral health.
Enhance Your Smile
Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, such as improving the appearance of discolored, misshapen, or uneven teeth. By placing a crown over the affected tooth, you can achieve a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Crowns are a durable and long-lasting solution for a variety of dental problems. With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last for many years, providing reliable and effective protection and restoration for your teeth.
Procedure for Dental Crowns
The process for getting a dental crown typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the affected tooth by removing any decayed or damaged material and shaping the tooth to accommodate the crown. An impression will be taken of your teeth, which will be used to create a custom-designed crown that matches the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth.
A temporary crown may be placed on the prepared tooth to protect it while the permanent crown is being made.
At the second appointment, the permanent crown will be placed over the prepared tooth and cemented into place. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the crown fits properly and feels comfortable.
If you are experiencing dental problems, dental crowns may be an effective solution to restore your teeth and improve your oral health.
