Repair And Fortify Damaged Teeth With Dental Crowns
Dental crowns can be a great option for patients with various dental issues. At First-in-Smiles Dentistry in Matthews, we provide comprehensive dental crown solutions to restore your teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a restoration that covers the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. Customized to match the same color and contour of your natural teeth, the dental crown performs various functions that can restore damaged teeth and significantly improve their strength, appearance, and longevity.
How are dental crowns placed at our office?
Placing a dental crown typically requires two visits to our office. During the first visit, we will prepare your tooth by removing enamel and reshaping it for the crown. Impressions of your prepared tooth are taken to create a replica of it in the form of a crown. A temporary restoration is placed on your tooth until your permanent crown is ready. During the second visit, your permanent crown will be cemented into place with a strong dental adhesive.
What issues can dental crowns correct?
Dental crowns restore teeth damaged by decay or trauma, protect weakened teeth from fracture, cover misshapen teeth, and support a bridge. They can also be used as part of a dental implant to replace missing teeth.
What are the benefits of dental crowns?
Dental crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence. They also provide additional strength for weakened teeth, restoring their structural integrity. Crowns generally last about ten years but can last much longer with proper care.
Who is a good candidate for dental crowns?
Dental crowns may be the right option for you if you have teeth that are significantly damaged or weakened. Our dentist can discuss all your options and help you determine if a dental crown is the best solution for your needs.
