Crowns are dental restorations that repair teeth that are damaged, decaying, or even missing. The crowns are tooth-colored caps that fit over the surface of a tooth or artificial teeth that bond to dental implants and replace missing permanent teeth. Crowns look and function just like your natural teeth.
Crowns at Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces can treat teeth that are:
Crowns can also restore and protect teeth after a root canal. The skilled Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces team evaluates your individual circumstances to determine which tooth restoration is best.
To determine if crowns are right for you, the Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces experts discuss your oral health history, review the results of your dental X-rays, examine your gums and teeth, and ask about your cosmetic goals. They tailor a treatment plan that best suits you.
In addition to dental crowns, Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces offers dental bridges, dentures, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, dental fillings, and smile makeovers.
Your dentist digitally scans your mouth to create an exact 3D replica of the outside of your tooth. A dental lab makes your new tooth out of ceramic, porcelain, or metal. When it’s ready, your dentist bonds it over the top of your natural tooth.
Before receiving an implant-supported crown, your dentist inserts a dental implant into your jawbone and allows bone tissues to heal around the implant. They then attach an artificial tooth to the implant to fill in gaps left by missing permanent teeth.
After receiving a crown, it’s vital to care for it properly to ensure it lasts a long time — even a decade or longer. Don’t chew on hard objects, limit sugary foods and drinks, brush your teeth after meals, and floss every day. Schedule dental cleanings and exams at Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces at least every six months, and call the office if your crown gets damaged.
