Do you need to restore a tooth’s shape, size, and strength? If so, you could be a candidate for a dental crown.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to improve its appearance and health. It can be used to:
• Restore a broken tooth
• Protect a weak tooth
• Refurbish a worn down tooth
• Support a tooth that has a large filling
• Hold a dental bridge in place
• Disguise a discolored tooth
• Cover a dental implant
• Make a cosmetic alteration
This is also a beneficial option for children who have poor dental hygiene or need to save a tooth because of extensive decay.
The process of installing a crown at the dental practice of Eric Goldberg, DDS involves two visits. The first visit will be the examination and preparation of the tooth. Your dentist will prepare the tooth by shaving a portion of the surface down to allow room for the crown. Once the tooth is the correct shape, he will make impressions of the tooth and will send them to a lab to be custom made for you. Your second visit will involve the placement of your new crown. Your dentist will check and adjust the tooth to your bite and smile, and once he finds the perfect fit, it will be permanently cemented into place.
