Are you dealing with a damaged or severely worn tooth? At Hover Dental Group, our dentist and professional team offer dental crowns, a durable and aesthetic solution to restore your smile’s integrity and appearance.
Understanding Dental Crowns
Dental crowns, often referred to as “caps,” are custom-fitted coverings placed over a tooth. They are designed to restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. Crowns are used in various situations, including:
- Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
- Restoring a broken or severely worn tooth
- Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Covering a dental implant
- Improving the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth
The Dental Crown Process
Getting a dental crown usually requires two visits. But at our office, we use CEREC technology to create same-day crowns. The process of getting a CEREC crown is efficient and streamlined:
- Digital Impressions: No need for uncomfortable traditional molds. We use digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your tooth.
- Design and Milling: The crown is designed in-office to match your tooth’s shape, size and color. It is then milled from a ceramic block in our CEREC machine.
- Placement: The crown is fitted, adjusted if necessary and bonded to your tooth, all within the same appointment.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Durability: Crowns are long-lasting and can endure the rigors of daily chewing
- Aesthetic Match: They can be made to match the color of your natural teeth
- Protection: Crowns safeguard the underlying tooth from further damage or decay
- Functionality: They restore the full functionality of your tooth, including comfortable chewing and speaking
- Versatility: Suitable for both restorative and cosmetic dental needs
