Dental Crowns: Restoring Strength and Beauty to Your Smile

At Nelson Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile. Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are an excellent solution for restoring the strength, functionality, and appearance of damaged or weakened teeth. Our dental crown service offers custom-made protective coverings that fit perfectly over your natural tooth, providing durability and support to withstand the forces of biting and chewing.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are protective coverings that are placed over damaged or weakened teeth, covering the tooth entirely from the gum line to the chewing surface. They are designed to mimic the natural shape and color of your teeth, enhancing your smile’s aesthetics and preserving your oral health.

Custom-Made for Your Unique Smile

Our dental crowns are custom-made to fit seamlessly over your natural tooth, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. We offer a range of crown materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and metal alloys, to meet your specific needs and preferences.

When Are Dental Crowns Used?

Dental crowns can effectively treat various dental conditions, including:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: Crowns protect and strengthen teeth with significant decay, restoring their structure and preventing further damage.
  • Cracked or Broken Teeth: Crowns provide support and cover for cracked or broken teeth, preventing further fracture and ensuring stability.
  • Large Fillings: Crowns are used to reinforce teeth with large fillings, preserving their strength and function.
  • Root Canal Therapy: Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy may require crowns for added protection and reinforcement.

The Dental Crown Procedure

The dental crown procedure typically involves two appointments:

  1. Tooth Preparation: During the first visit, the affected tooth is prepared by removing any decay or damage. An impression of the tooth is then taken to create a custom crown.
  2. Crown Placement: At the second visit, your custom-made crown is carefully placed over the prepared tooth, and adjustments are made to ensure a perfect fit and bite.

Maintaining Your Dental Crowns

With proper oral hygiene and regular dental care, dental crowns can offer long-lasting protection and restore the natural look and function of the affected tooth. Our dental team will provide you with guidance on caring for your dental crowns to ensure their durability and longevity.
