Q: What are dental crowns?
A: They are caps that look just like natural teeth. They replace the tooth enamel, cover the entire visible portion of the tooth, and can restore the tooth’s health, function and beauty.
Q: What is the treatment process?
A: First, your dentist will numb the mouth and trim the tooth enamel of the treated tooth. Second, she will make impressions of the smile and a crown can then be crafted. Third, your dentist will place a temporary crown over the tooth while you wait. Fourth, she will remove the temporary crown and cement the new crown into place once it is ready.
Q: What can a dental crown do for me?
A: It can protect a weak tooth, hold together a broken tooth, help a severely worn-down or damaged tooth, improve the appearance of a tooth and more.
