This means that without proper treatment, a weakened or cracked tooth can put you at risk of more serious dental issues.

What Is a Dental Crown?
While it may appear like a normal permanent tooth, a dental crown is a custom-crafted and hollow “cap” that is meant to properly fit a compromised or injured tooth. By covering the whole portion of the tooth above your gum line, it can restore its function and strength as well as improve its appearance. These restorations can also be constructed out of a wide selection of materials, porcelain being the most popular one. This is due to the ease with which it can match the color of your other teeth, creating a seamless solution for renewing your pearly whites. Dental crowns are typically used to treat the following conditions:
- Teeth with large cavities or fillings
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Mishappen, small, or aesthetically flawed teeth
- Teeth that have been repaired with root canal therapy
- Missing teeth, in combination with a dental implant
The Dental Crown Process
During your initial consultation, we’ll first evaluate your situation to determine if a dental crown is the best option for you. If it is, we can then prepare the affected tooth by removing a small portion of the enamel. This is to ensure enough space for fitting the dental crown in place. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and provide a temporary restoration over your exposed tooth.
After two weeks, the impressions will have been used to construct your permanent crown. Once we get it from the dental lab, we’ll call you in so we can remove and replace your temporary one with your new permanent crown.
