Dental crowns are usually the last step in a root canal procedure, but can also be used to restore badly damaged or broken teeth. A is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over what remains of your natural tooth, allowing you to keep the functioning tooth’s root while protecting the rest of the tooth structure from damage. Our dentists will let you know if dental crowns are the best restorative dental option for you.
Our team will first clean and prepare your tooth for the crown. This involves some filing and shaping of the natural tooth so that the crown can fit on top. Next, we’ll take dental impressions so we can make your new crown right in our office. We have a milling machine that will carve out your dental crown from a ceramic block. Our ceramic blocks come in all different shades to match the color of your natural tooth enamel. Once your CEREC dental crown is ready, one of our dentists will bond it to your tooth and you’ll be all set.
It’s important to take care of your crown if you want it to last for years to come. Brush and floss the area the same way you would with a natural tooth, and steer clear of foods that are too hard or sticky to avoid putting unnecessary stress on the area. If you grind your teeth, your crown will become more fragile over time.
