Restore Your Oral Health

What are Crowns (Caps)?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over the teeth. These caps are generally made of porcelain or ceramic. Patients receive dental crowns when they are experiencing destroyed, decayed, or fractured teeth that cannot be restored with a filling or the tooth has had a root canal. Crowns restore physical comfort and strength while providing a beautifully natural-looking smile restoration.

Meet Your Perfect Match

What are the benefits of Crowns?

Crowns restore the health, strength, and beauty of your smile. These carefully crafted dental prosthetics are effective in covering discolored, misshapen, or severely decayed teeth, improving overall appearance. Crowns also play a crucial role in preserving the integrity of teeth following root canal treatment or large fillings. By encasing the entire visible portion of a tooth, crowns shield it from further decay and fractures. Additionally, they distribute biting forces evenly, reducing strain on surrounding teeth. With proper care, dental crowns can last for many years, making them a durable and versatile solution for various dental issues.

Innovative Options

Types of Crowns

EMAX and LAVA crowns use a technology that achieves a natural look. Gold crowns may be chosen as a more durable option for situations where patients have a tight clench or for a different aesthetic look. We will educate you about the various types of crowns that can be crafted for you and help you select the best option for your needs.

Custom-Fit Perfection

Your Crowns Procedure

Your dentist first removes any decay or damage from the tooth and shapes it to prepare it for crown placement. They then take an impression or digital scan of the tooth to create a crown that fits seamlessly. While waiting for the permanent crown to be crafted in a lab, you will wear a temporary crown to protect the tooth. Once the permanent crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is carefully fitted and adjusted.

Crowns Recovery and Aftercare

Expect some sensitivity and mild discomfort, which should subside within a few days. Avoid chewing on hard foods initially and maintain thorough oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Be cautious with temporary crowns, if applicable, and attend follow-up appointments to ensure the crown's fit and function. Regular dental checkups are important to monitor the crown's condition and overall oral health. By adhering to these guidelines, you can promote the longevity and success of your dental crown.

Restored Strength and Beauty

Crowns Results

Your dental crown is designed to resemble your natural teeth in both appearance and function closely. Modern dental technology allows for the creation of crowns that are customized to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless integration into your smile.

Functionally, the crown restores strength and functionality, allowing you to chew, speak, and bite comfortably, just like you would with a natural tooth. The crown protects a weakened tooth, preventing further decay or damage. It also helps distribute the forces exerted during chewing, reducing strain on neighboring teeth. With proper care and oral hygiene, a dental crown can last for many years, offering aesthetic enhancement and functional improvement to your oral health.
