If you have a tooth that has suffered moderate or even severe damage, we may recommend that you receive a dental crown that will match the natural shade of your teeth, and will last for several years.
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure, your Dentist will discuss treatment options with you and answer your questions. If the agreed upon-treatment is a dental crown, your Dentist will apply a local anesthetic to prepare your tooth or dental implant. During your first office visit, we use the best technology to design your crown. A putty-like material is used to make impression of your prepared teeth. Your crown will be fabricated for a precise fit based on this impression. You will be fitted with a temporary crown to protect your tooth/implant and gums until your permanent crown has been fabricated. During a second office visit, your Dentist will fit and permanently bond your crown.
