Protective & Aesthetic Dental Caps for Repairing Teeth

Want to know a pretty neat fun fact? Your tooth enamel is one of the hardest materials in your whole body. While this is the case, it doesn’t mean that they’re entirely invulnerable to harm. Unlike your bones, they also won’t regenerate on their own, meaning a damaged tooth will require treatment to restore it. Fortunately, our team at Cromer & Cairns Dental can provide just the thing you need with dental crowns! These protective dental caps are designed to preserve the structure of your tooth while improving the appearance of your smile. To learn more about this treatment, read on or call our practice today to schedule your initial consultation.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped protective caps that are made to cover the entire top portion of a damaged or otherwise compromised tooth. These restorations can be constructed out of zirconia, EMAX, and/or porcelain—each of which is incredibly durable and can perfectly mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. This allows them to function exactly like normal teeth while also helping to improve the look of your smile. Our team can color-match dental crowns so that they blend with the rest of your teeth, and you can expect your results to last a decade or more depending on how well you take care of them.

The Dental Crown Process

The typical dental crown process takes a mere two appointments to complete the final restorations. Firstly, you’ll undergo an initial consultation where our team will evaluate your oral health, determine if you’re healthy enough to move forward with the procedure and discuss details of the treatment, such as the overall cost. If you’re eligible, we can begin by removing a small amount of the enamel to make space for the restoration before taking impressions, which our team will use to construct the crown in our in-house dental lab.

As you wait, you’ll need to wear a temporary dental crown to keep your tooth safe. It should take two to three weeks for your main restoration to be made. Once it’s ready, you’ll return to our office to have your temporary one replaced with your permanent crown. Our team will verify that your bite is correct and that you’re satisfied with the results before sending you on your way to make the most of your renewed smile.
