Even if you're doing everything right with your oral health care, sometimes problems can still occur. Today, we’re fortunate to have so many options for helping restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile.
At Thomas Family Dentistry, we take pride in creating high quality restorations like porcelain crowns for teeth that have been affected by decay or other damage.
We believe that providing you with the highest standard of care involves treatments that not only enhance your oral health but also improve your appearance. Our durable, natural-looking restorations will improve your dental health and leave you with a smile you’re proud to show off.
Dental Crowns Restore Function and Beauty
A dental crown is designed to enclose a damaged tooth. It restores or alters the tooth’s shape and size, while providing protection and support.
Crowns are an excellent option for correcting many problems. But before we decide if they’re right for you, we’ll talk to you about your goals so we know what it is you’d like to accomplish. Since we do offer other services like dental bonding that might be a better solution, we’ll talk to you about all your options.
Placing Your New Dental Crown
Once we’ve decided a crown is right for you, we’ll start the process by preparing your natural tooth to ensure a perfect fit for your new crown. Next, using our efficient TRIOS® 3Shape digital scanner, we’ll take highly accurate impressions of your teeth.
This state-of-the-art technology benefits you because it does away with messy, sticky (and sometimes inaccurate) impressions. Digital impressions also produce a very precise image, which actually cuts about a week off the time it takes to create your final crown. During the same appointment, we’ll also fit you with a comfortable temporary crown to wear until your final crown is ready to be placed securely over your tooth.
Crowns – A Versatile Solution
People most often think of crowns as being used to strengthen a weakened tooth, protect a tooth after root canal treatment, or as the final touch on a dental implant.
However, since crowns completely surround your natural tooth, they can also be used to solve esthetic problems.
- Build up poorly shaped or misaligned teeth
- Conceal severely stained or discolored teeth
- Cover an old, darkened metal filling
- Replace an existing crown that is worn, broken, or unsightly
All our crowns are fabricated at a high-quality dental lab to our exact specification. We don’t skimp on quality because a dental crown is an investment in time and money on your part, and we want you to be thrilled with the results.
