Crowns Q & A

What is a dental crown?

Over time, your teeth may experience damage or degradation, whether from periodontal disease, cavities, injury, or normal wear-and-tear. When this happens, your tooth function and appearance can become impaired. Fortunately, a dental crown can help to effectively restore your tooth, improve both the function and appearance, and protect it from future damage. 

A dental crown is essentially a cap that’s placed over a damaged tooth. The cap runs all the way down to the gumline. Useful in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, a dental crown serves a wide range of purposes. Just For Your Smile provides same-day porcelain crowns, ensuring a natural look and feel. 

Am I a candidate for a dental crown?

Because of its wide applicability, many people can benefit from the use of a dental crown. Crowns are often used to: 

  • Restore broken or fractured teeth
  • Strengthen weak teeth as a result of a dental filling
  • Restore teeth suffering from severe tooth decay
  • Address cosmetic flaws such as discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Strengthen and protect teeth

In addition, a dental crown can be used to secure a dental bridge. Your provider at Just For Your Smile works with you to determine if dental crowns are right for you. 

What can I expect at my appointment?

Initially, your provider at Just For Your Smile takes X-rays and conducts a physical examination of your mouth in order to develop a custom treatment plan designed specifically for you. They then use advanced CEREC 3D technology to create an impression of your teeth, eliminating the need for messy mouth trays. This information is used to create a highly accurate and customized crown designed specially to fit your mouth. 

Once the crown is ready, your provider at Just For Your Smile prepares your tooth to receive the crown by scraping away any damaged or decayed portions, allowing the crown to fit seamlessly in place.
