A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that is cemented over an existing tooth. Dental crowns can be implemented to protect teeth that are weaker, or help restore the appearance of a broken tooth. Dental crowns are often used for children who still have baby teeth, in order to protect an already decaying tooth.
Upon the initial visit, a dentist will diagnose the extent of damage to the tooth. The tooth in need of a crown will be filed down and reshaped in order to best fit with the dental crown. Impressions will be made to create the best type of crown, and your dentist will discuss which crown material and appearance is most preferred for you.
Dental crowns can be made of different types of metals, such as stainless steel, or they can have a white cover to match other teeth. All Smiles Dentistry offers both types of dental crowns, and if you or your family members opt for white cover crowns, we provide them at no additional cost. Your smile should be something you love, and we’ll help you get there. Contact our dental clinic today to meet with our dentists, and see why patients choose All Smiles Dentistry time and again.
