Understanding the Benefits of Crowns
Crowns are custom tooth-shaped prosthetics built to cover or replace teeth. Common applications of dental crowns include:
- Restoring a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth
- Covering and reinforcing a cracked or broken tooth
- Protecting a tooth that has been treated for advanced decay
- Covering a tooth with severe intrinsic stains that cannot be treated with teeth whitening Covering a misshapen tooth
Dental patients typically receive their crowns in two visits. During the first visit, Dr. Allick will numb your tooth and the surrounding gum before reshaping and tapering the tooth to properly accommodate the crown. He will then take impressions of your tooth, which we will send to our offsite laboratory. There, experienced technicians will create a crown that matches the color and shape of your natural teeth. While this crown is being created, you will be given a temporary. Once the crown is finished, you will come in for your second visit, when Dr. Allick will secure your new crown into place.
