A dental crown is a versatile restoration, covering a tooth to improve its appearance, return it to full size, strengthening it, and providing a needed barrier to keep out bacterial infections. At Dental Dreams, LLC, you can get them for any tooth, made out of tooth-colored materials that blend in near perfectly with your natural tooth color.
What are some of the ways that your Hialeah Gardens dentist can help you with a crown? By addressing a chipped or cracked tooth, one that has suffered advanced decay, or has become discolored. A crown is also used to restore a tooth that has undergone root canal, by replacing the material lost in the drilling process. And both fixed bridges and dental implants utilize crowns as part of the treatment for replacing one or more lost teeth. That’s a lot of potential uses. Three options are available for the making of a crown. Our Hialeah Gardens dentist can offer porcelain, porcelain baked to a metal base, or ceramic. All three are excellent, but depending on several factors, including what part of your mouth the tooth is located, the most applicable choice will be made, with your approval of course. It takes two visits to get a crown. First, impressions are taken of your tooth and sent to the dental lab, where the crown is made to precise standards. When you return to our office, the crown is fitted, adjusted as necessary, and then cemented to the tooth. You can depend on it to be strong and to give you the confidence you need to chew your food, speak, and laugh without a care.
Simply book an appointment by contacting our office and letting us find a convenient time for you to come and get your new crown from our Hialeah Gardens dentist.
