Do you have a tooth that is causing you pain or perhaps does not look as attractive as the surrounding teeth? A decayed or broken tooth can be covered up or replaced entirely by a dental crown. Your new artificial tooth crown can be customized to match the rest of your smile for a natural and beautiful look.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is an artificial tooth cap that is installed over a problem tooth or an implant post. The dental crown is secured permanently, so it can be used for normal chewing with little risk of loosening or falling out. It can also be brushed and flossed normally. A crown can be customized for size, shape, and color, so it will look natural when beside your real teeth.
A dental crown can be a good solution for a single tooth. We also offer dental bridges that can cover or replace multiple adjacent teeth.
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dr. Holly will always try to salvage or restore a natural tooth. However, sometimes tooth damage cannot be repaired, so we may recommend that the tooth be covered or replaced for both health and aesthetic purposes.
Dr. Holly may suggest restoring your smile with a dental crown if your tooth is:
- Cracked, chipped, or broken.
- Disfigured or warped out of shape.
- Worn down or weakened.
- Irreversibly stained.
- Filled with too many cavities or a cavity that is too large for filling.
If you are wary about replacing your natural tooth with an artificial one, you might be pleased to know that an artificial tooth can be just as attractive as a natural tooth and is often even stronger and more resistant to stains and decay.
Our Dental Crowns
At Majestic Dentistry, we use traditional technology to provide you with dental crowns matched to fit comfortably in your jaw and blend in with your other teeth. Dr. Holly will make measurements and take X-rays before sending the details to a lab so that your crown can be crafted just for you. We will make any adjustments throughout the crown installation process to ensure that your dental crown looks and feels natural.
