There are many situations that indicate a crown be placed to properly restore a tooth. This may be due to decay, structural fractures, previous root canal therapy or inadequate tooth structure to support a filling. A crown is used to restore teeth to their correct shape, size, strength and appearance. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the changes we make for people using this technology. Permanent crowns can be made from a variety of materials including high noble metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and more recently bonded all ceramic. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a tooth colored provisional (temporary) crown. Temporary crowns can be made in your dentist’s office whereas permanent crowns are made in a dental laboratory.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and cement the permanent crown into place.
