Restore strength, size, and shape with a crown from Crown Point Implants.
What is a dental crown?
A crown, also sometimes called a cap, is an artificial, tooth-like covering that is placed over a damaged or worn-down tooth to help strengthen the tooth and provide improved appearance, alignment, and shape. A crown may be necessary for several reasons: to strengthen a weakened tooth; cover a particularly bad cavity, or for cosmetic reasons. Delaying treatment can result in further health complications, like infection and can lead to more extensive procedures, such as root canals and tooth extractions. Damaged teeth can interfere with your ability to eat certain foods and effect your speech. Whatever your reason for having a crown procedure may be, we have the best dentists in Crown Point to help you decide which option will best suit your individual needs.
The Process of Getting Your Dental Crown
If our experienced dental staff determines that a crown may be the best option for you, the process will go something like this. The first step is to numb the tooth and surrounding area using a local anesthetic. The tooth is then filed down so the permanent crown can later be cemented onto the tooth. An impression of the filed tooth is then made using putty and a high tech digital scanner to ensure a perfect fit. After the tooth is filed and the molds have been taken, a temporary crown is then placed over the tooth until your permanent crown is ready. After this step, your bite is checked to ensure that your bite is perfect. The entire process usually only spans a couple weeks, and then you’ll have a complete and healthy smile once again.
Getting a crown with us here at Crown Point Implants is quick, easy, and painless. We combine cutting-edge technology with tried-and-tested techniques to ensure that your new crown looks and feels like the real thing. Our staff will take the time to make sure that you are not only satisfied, but comfortable.
